Yummy Treats...

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend!

I had a very productive weekend! In addition to the three quilts that I finished and already posted about, I finished binding another quilt over the weekend. I call this one my pink & green retro quilt, because the fabrics look a little retro to me. It's just a block pattern...nothing too special. I love this quilt because the quilt top cost all of about $8 since I bought the fabric at a quilt show last year for super cheap...I love that!

We also went to our 5th Ward reunion and it was fun to see everyone again. It was potluck and I took these yummy treats:


I call them double chocolate brownie bites and they are so easy to make...you can have a little piece of heaven whenever you want! They are chewy from the brownie, silky from the ganache, and nice and chocolatey. They are just brownies baked in a mini-muffin cup, punched down in the middle (after baking), filled with chocolate ganache, and topped with raspberries. You could also top them with whipped cream, or a strawberry fan, or chopped nuts or cocconut, or anything else that sounds yummy!

I also made grape jelly and apricot jam over the weekend. I love homemade jams and jellies...in fact, I think I've consumed almost an entire loaf of bread over the past two days...I'm constantly eating it!

Hope you have a great week!

Anna! That is one fabulous quilt! I love the colors and top for $8! Yay!! I love it when I make or see something fabulous that was inexpensive. You had a busy weekend doing all my favorite things, cooking, baking, sewing, and socializing. It doesn't get any better!!

Anna:
Those brownie tartlets look insanely good. I need your recipe! Did you make the brownies from scratch? How much ganache did you use? Those look like a perfect chocolate summer treat.
I love your quilt AND the way you displayed it. Can you add artistic genius to your list of roles?

I tasted Anna's treat and jams - very, very good. She is indeed very talented and good at everything she does. Best of all is that she is my daughter.
Love, mamma
