Fabulous Peanut Butter Fudge

I'm so excited about this silly little plate of fudge that I am linking it to "Making Monday Marvelous" over at C.R.A.F.T. Click through for loads of wonderful recipes and crafty projects! 

Quick, easy, amazing... those are the three key ingredients that inspire me to try a recipe. I was digging through the box of clipped recipes that I got from my dear mother-in-law, and came upon this little gem from the "Quick Cooking Collector's Edition. The clipped recipe was submitted by Mrs. Kenneth Rummel of Linglestown, PA. I decided to try this and it is simply outstanding, so felt I had to share. The photo shown here is my own.
Peanut Butter Fudge

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1-1/3 cups peanut butter, creamy or chunky
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme
Butter the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan; set aside. In a saucepan, bring sugar and milk to a boil; boil for 3 minutes. Add peanut butter and marshmallow creme; mix well, blending thoroughly. Quickly pour into the 8-inch buttered pan; chill until set, about 2 hours. Cut into squares. 

HERE is a printable 3.5 x 5 recipe card for this fabulous fudge!

Son of Zipper Pouch

We've been on two cruises in our lifetime, and both times we took the exact same boat and the exact same itinerary. We've been to the Sturgis Rally in South Dakota twice, and both times we took the same route and the same scenic rides. So it's not too surprising that when I needed to make a second zippered pouch, I used the same fabrics, with the same details, that I used the first time around

The first pouch I made using Kate's super-simple tutorial at See Kate Sew turned out so cute... my daughter loved it as much as I did, and she used it as her pencil pouch at school until the day her car was broken into and her backpack stolen. The little pouch disappeared that day too, along with her camera, some personal letters, and a couple of textbooks. 

Now that she's headed off to college, she asked me if I'd make her another pouch so of course I couldn't say no. I used all materials on-hand, so the trim is a little different - and I'm still working without a zipper foot so I had to work carefully around the zipper pull. But overall this "second draft" turned out just as cute as the first one, and again I just have to say how easy the tutorial was for this project. 


I may need to make a few more of these!
