Ahahahaha well so much for the weekly idea! I am still going to shoot for making In The Mix a weekly thing, even if it only happens once a month. 😀
In the mix is a weekly comp of crafts, recipes, videos, articles that I like and would like to share with you. Without further ado, here are my picks for this week:

Since Facebook is being a pill about letting folks, who’ve liked my page, actually SEE what I post I thought I’d start doing a weekly “in the mix” of crafts, recipes, videos, articles that I like and would like to share with you.
Hopefully I’ll stick with this long enough to make it a weekly thing. 🙂
Without further ado, here are my picks this week:

One of my life long friends is having baby #3 at the end of this month. Her sister and I decided to throw her a baby sprinkle. Just a few friends and some necessary gifts, like diapers, wet bags, etc. It’s her 3rd girl so she is all set in every other department. But we still wanted to get together to celebrate her and the new baby. A baby sprinkle was the perfect way to do that. Read more

Earlier this week, I posted a picture on Facebook of granola I was making and a few people asked for a recipe so here it is. I’ve been making this granola for years. I was looking for a good crunchy granola that would also create chunks. I love chunky granola. I tried many many recipes and ended up mixing up a few, added my own bits and came up with this one. It’s really accommodating. You could even make this nut free by using sunflower butter instead of almond butter and omitting the almonds. Read more

Happy Halloween! This year I made Monster Cookies for all my coworkers. I love these cookies on their own but I spookified them by using Fall M&Ms, chocolate and orange chips from Nestle, a handful of sprinkle confetti and a handful of halloween themed sprinkles. And I topped each one with one eyeball. Ooooooooo spooky!

Lauren, of A Fabulous Fete, was going on vacation and asked if I would do a guest post for her. I happily obliged and put together this Coconut Custard Pie that forms it’s own crust. Hallelujah! I have an ongoing rival with pie crust. So when I heard there was a pie out there that would form it’s own crust, I got to recipe testing and tweaking to come up with the one I shared over on A Fabulous Fete.

I’ve pinned this Pumpkin Peekaboo cake from She Knows back in November and intended on making it for Thanksgiving and then for Christmas and yea, it never happened. I was trying to think of a neat treat for St. Patrick’s Day and the peekaboo cake sprang to mind. So here is my version of the cake all greened up for St. Pat’s Day.

Valentines Day is almost here and you still have no idea what to do. Right? How about a Valentines Day smash cake? You’ve probably heard of smash cakes before. Usually for 1st birthday parties where it’s ok to get cake all over your face and up your nose. But this cake is a version made for bigger kids, and adults alike. And I am going to show you how it’s done!

Last month, Sharon from Cupcakes and Cutlery, asked if I could help bring her dessert table ideas for a bridal shower to fruition. Since I love to do new stuff (and, honestly, I’d do anything for Sharon), I said “heck ya!”. Hop on over and read all about the “For, Like, Ever” shower she threw for Lauren of A Fabulous Fete.
