When I found out that I had two nieces due within months of each other my brain went into over drive with quilt ideas. Unfortunately I did not have the time to make two different elaborate quilts as I wanted because of teaching and taking university courses.
I had seen Disappearing 9 patch quilts before but did not know what they were called only that they were very eye catching. While looking for quilt patterns for my two nieces I stumbled upon this YouTube video, which changed the course of my summer!

This salad is too easy to eat. And it is a pleasant change from your traditional pasta salads.

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
2 Tbsp margarine
1 1/3 cup milk
Dumplings are cooked with steam so you require a lid. Be sure the stove temperature is on low so you can prevent your food from burning on the bottom.

Mangoes are in season and are very inexpensive right now and I've heard from a few people and I've eavesdropped in the produce aisle enough to know that people are scared of mangoes. They don't know how to cut into them and then there is the stone in the center which really throws people off. Here is my handy picture display of how to prepare a mango. Please know that every time I flip the mango to display the cute little cubes I say "ta daaaa" which makes me laugh and Matt shake his head at me (he says it's in love but I know he's laughing a little too!) But you can feel like a magician too when you've mastered the art of flipping a mango!

This is a nice alternative to your steamed broccoli.
