Cheesy Pull-apart Fun!

I got the general idea for this off Pinterest but sadly it was just a picture so I had to try to create it on my own. I think I did a pretty good job to ;o)

1 Batch Pizza Dough
3 Tbsp Butter
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning

As my pizza dough rose I tossed ideas back and forth for the easiest yet most effective way to do this. Pizza dough tends to be very elastic and isn't easily just rolled out, but I stretched and rolled it the best I could into long strips about 4 inches wide. I then took my Mozzarella cheese and put it in a line down the middle of the strip. I then rolled it over almost like you would if making a burrito. Then I cut them into pieces about 2 inches long and tucked them into a ball shape. After I got them all balled up I melted the butter in a small bowl and mix in the garlic and Italian seasoning. I put a layer of the dough and cheese balls in the bottom and on the sides of the pan. After a single layer I applied more butter to the top of them and then added another layer. After they were all layered I put the in the oven on 350 for about 25-35 minutes. :O) Now I did have some issues getting the middle ones cooked all the way so for faster cooking simply spread them out in one layer on a cookie sheet rather then stacking them :O) 
To serve them I did the thing that would make every cardiologist pass out :OP I took the remaining butter and mixed it in with some spaghetti sauce Mmm....in made a perfect dipping sauce!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
