Black Forest Cream Pie

We are so excited to have the lovely Anja stopping by today to share a recipe.... Black Forest cream pie! Anja blogs over at Cocalores, and you must head over and visit her there! (After you finish reading through her post below of course :P)

Hi everyone! My name is Anja and I'm so glad to be guest posting here today. My very own little home on the web is Cocalores, where I blog about my creative endeavors (easy DIYs, crafts, crochet, and all other creative things that tickle my fancy) and sometimes dessert... there's always time for dessert, right?

May I just say I love meet.make.laugh.? Steph, Hayley and Cindy are some of the nicest girls out there, and if they didn't live 5000 miles away, I'd totally have them over for coffee and cake. So why not have a virtual coffee klatsch with Black Forest cream pie?

Highlights of where we call home... Victoria, BC!

The 3 of us are all so in love with our home sweet home... Victoria, BC. There is something about island life that is so unique, it has a flavour all of its own.
This week Design Sponge did a city guide for our little city, and they definitely captured a lot of our favourite spots so we thought we would share

meet.make.lavender lemon cheesecake bites.

These little cheesecake cups were our Easter dinner treats! Our holiday dinners are anything but light so we wanted to make a dessert that everyone would have room for and weren't too rich to want to eat.

We've never attempted to make cheescake before so we thought we would make little cups to decrease our chances of messing up. We came across the recipe from Rara Bakes  and added our own spin to them. SInce it was Easter we thought something with lavender would be fitting and also decided to zest with lemon and add raspberries to complete the presentation.

Lavender and lemon are definitely a favourite combo of ours.... previously we had attempted a really tasty drink with these flavours and LOVED it! 

Note that in lieu of a mini cheescake pan, we used a muffin pan, decreased the temperature by 25 degrees and increased the baking time to 25 min.

meet.make.leather tassel keychain.

DIY Tassel Leather and Embroidery Thread Keychain

My old keychain lately took a turn for the worst, and was ready to fall apart at any second. I figured it was high time to DIY a new one! 

Inspired by designlovefest, I decided to tackle a tassel keychain and put my own little twist on it.

The baby crafting begins....

As Cindy moves forward in her pregnancy (she is at 22 weeks), we have been knitting and crocheting up a storm. Here are a peek at our first couple projects!

Hayley's knit bow hat:

Steph's crochet wrap around booties:

We cannot wait for the little mustard seed to join our island family! 

What should be our next project for the baby? Any suggestions?

meet.make.hummus cups.

I needed to throw together a quick appetizer before our Easter dinner at Steph's place. So filing through our Pinterest boards, I came across these adorable Hummus Cups!
Some of you may know, I am NOT the Chef of this group. In fact, my fiancé even does most of the cooking at home, and I am very content with this. He just always makes it look so easy!

I on the other hand, have to follow dirrections EXACTLY... and I will STILL manage to mess it up somehow. Though I have found that although the outcome of my cooking may look kind of weird, it tastes good! And that's all that matters right? Well, for me at least.
