Origami = Peace + Tranquility + SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Seriously, origami is the best cure for the blues I have ever found.  Why?  Because it is frustrating and maddening and incomprehensibly confusing, until that point where you figure out you valleyed instead of mountaining, and then it all comes out perfect and adorable, and it is so cute you just can't help being happy.  Kinda like my average day, condensed into 30 minutes, with pretty colored paper.

I made these Bunny Boxes for Easter.




Bad Kitty!


Cute and easy to store.  Just fold them up and slip them in an envelope.  Instructions to make your own origami bunny box can be found here.

I made this luscious Apple Dutch Baby for breakfast this weekend.


K added a bit of powdered sugar


Oh yeah, heaven on a plate!

I only make Dutch Babies a couple times a year, they are not health food. But for a birthday or holiday treat, they are unbeatable. You can find the recipe for a plain dutch baby on the Joy of Cooking site.  I found the Apple Dutch Baby recipe in the latest Family Fun Magazine.  I can't find a link to the recipe, but when I do I'll add it.
