Episode #5 of the Lakeview Cottage Kids Podcast is up today!!!Blankets and Afghans . Blog Hops . Podcast Information
Episode #5 of The Lakeview Cottage Kids Podcast is up on my YouTube Channel! I hope you check it out. Lots of topics are discussed, including an update on completed baby blanket projects and the associated patterns. The patterns for most are now available in my Etsy and Ravelry Shops. Also, I discuss my upcoming CAL where I will be making my Spring Pastels C2C Baby Blanket. (That is the blanket pictured at the top of this post.). It is a C2C pattern with a fun and simple border. The pattern is now available in my shops. I hope you will join me for the CAL. I’m excited to be doing it. (I haven’t done a CAL for my followers and subscribers before so I am really excited to get started.). I will have all the details coming out in my newsletter this week. So, if you aren’t subscribed to my newsletter, be sure to do that as soon as possible!!
In the podcast, too, I talk about WIP’s that I am working on right now. I’m really having fun doing some color work projects and I hope you will try them out with me! Patterns will be coming soon.
Also, some Free patterns are discussed and, of course, a new recipe is presented…..Pistachio Pudding Dessert! It’s a perfect dessert for St. Patrick’s Day festivities. So pretty….so refreshing…. so perfect!!!
So, without further ado, here is the delicious dessert recipe! If you make it, please snap a picture of it and post it here in the comments or tag me on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #lakeviewcottagekidsrecipes
Pistachio Pudding Dessert
40 Ritz crackers — crushed
1 stick margarine – melted
Mix and pat into pan (9″x13″) – do not grease the pan
Place the following ingredients in a bowl:
1 cup milk
2 pkgs. instant Pistachio pudding
1 qt. softened vanilla ice cream.
Beat until blended. Pour over the baked and cooled crust. Let stand at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Spread with Cool Whip, and sprinkle the top with crushed Heath Bars.
Enjoy! I think this will become a family favorite!!! 🙂
I also wanted to remind you that my friend, Michelle at the Two Brothers Blankets blog, accepted me to be a guest blogger at her blog! My Mommy and Me beanie patterns (pictured above) were (and are still) featured beginning Februry 11. My patterns are available there for free now! Be sure to check them ouot!
I also mention in my podcast this week that I have a fun and Free cowl pattern available now. Well, here it is! (Pictured above.). It works up quickly and easily using an “I” hook and #4 weight yarn. It is a cowl that is pretty close fitting so that when worn with your winter coat, your neck stays nice and warm! I used Big Twist Value yarn which is available at Joann’s but any #4 weight yarn will work! This cowl is fun to work up quickly for your winter wardrobe or for a quick gift for a friend! Enjoy!
