Pizza and Daily Deals


PIZZA TIP

My newest toy to add to my kitchen collection is a 
Pizza Maker by Breville I got mine at Williams Sonoma.
Its an electric Pizza Baker which heats up to 
600 degrees and has a stone it 
bakes the Pizza like a Brick Oven would.
I learned a few tricks on my first attempt.
I also didn't do a traditional tomato sauce I decided to use a 
Herb Italian Olive Oil ….SO YUMMY!




 I used fresh basil, tomato, mozzarella 
and  parmesan cheeses. 
 I piled my ingredients a bit too high and 
also didn't use quite enough flour so it would slide off my paddle easier.  Therefore my Pizza was not round more oblong or some kind of other shape? Now I know why wood fire thin crusted pizza only has a few toppings the weight of too much 
topping is difficult to support. 
The cooker has different settings depending on the
thickness of your crust.
The newest toy to the website is our 
Daily Deals 
everyday we will be posting a new deal.  
Some of these deals are more than 
70%off  

and on the weekend we will be offering the
Weekend Wow this will be a product to save on 
all weekend as long as supplies last.
You don't want to miss to savings so check everyday.
They post in the morning by 10 am here at the warehouse.

Sloppy Joes

GREAT OUTDOORS

What to do when there is nothing to do? 
The Great Outdoors is the perfect answer.  
When you are screaming, crying, running, laughing, or just enjoying the fresh air the Great Outdoors is the way to go.

When the time comes to have all the kids sometimes it is so chaotic that you simply need something to do
 with them for a distraction.   
 The perfect time of year in St. George for hiking and discovery.
The red hills are beautiful and make for incredible trails, cracks and ledges to explore.
Although Zac is really not a kid as a cousin he is Number 1.
He has as much fun as the 4 year olds and when 
you're 17 that is really great or is it?
 It's always fun to find a cave.

How many can you fit in the wagon?
There is never a limit to the fun that can be had.
Making memories and spending time 
together is what we do best!
With busy grandkids who love to explore it 
doesn't get much better than this.



After Hiking we came home to Sloppy Joe's and Salads
Here is the amazing Sloppy Joe Recipe in the Cookbook page 50

1 pound lean ground beef

1/2 cup ketchup

1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Grab n Go

Gracies "Grab n Go"
The method for this project is made with the 
flip and sew technique.  
Follow along and see how simple and quick this goes together.

Finished size 30x30


Begin with laying your backing piece of minky 
(minky with right side down)
spray your batting piece to the backing to hold in place.
Next cut your center square and center it on the backing/batting 
Make your tie
Pin tie in place diagonally



Add the next row and pin to center piece and tie.
Stitch using about 3/8" seam allowance.


Open and spray to lay strip flat.  You are now ready to attach the other side to the center block.
We always recommend the 505 Spray

It is easy to use and doesn't gum up your machine or needle.
It is a temporary adhesive so remember it washes out and you need to stitch to keep in place.
Find this product in Tools and Notions 
along with flower head pins.

Continue adding rows and open each time keeping seams flat and ready to attach the next row.



Using the flower head pins because they are long and thin.  
Pin about 2-3" apart lining up seams.

Notice the batting is visible remember you are sewing through all layers the top seams the batting and the backing.
This means when the project is sewn it is complete and ready for you to attach binding.  
There is no additional quilting required.


Order today the complete kit is available for
$39.95
You will find it under the flavor of the month
It's a fast fun project to take in the car, lay on the floor as a mat and attach a toy to the handle or just snuggle up with it.

MINKY WEEK



MINKY BINDING 
 TIPS AND TECHNIQUE HELPS

Cut all binding strips 2" wide
Remember you are working with fabric 
58"- 60" wide fabric

For a 60x72 you need 5 strips
For a 48x60 you need 4 strips

TIP after cutting the minky toss strips in the dryer on air fluff no heat for a few minutes to remove all lint and minky dust. 

Stitch all binding strips in one 
continuous strip sewing Diagonally. 

Place the quilt right side up and lay binding strip on with right sides together leaving about 12" as a tail. 
You will be using a single layer of 
minky and 3/8 seam allowance. 
 
Stitch in the same manner as a cotton binding.
when you get to the corner stop about 1/8"
from edge fold the binding 45 degree angle.  

Then bring the binding strip back lining up the top edge.  
 This makes a mitered corner.
 Begin stitching at the corner with
 3/8" seam allowance.

 When you get to the end where they line up cut 
the tail leaving about 6" unstitched. 
 Bring the other strip (with the excess minky) and line it up to match the cut minky piece.  Fold back lining it up to the cut piece and measure 2" from the folded edge
 cut the excess minky off.
 Lay the binding strip right sides together 
and  sew together diagonally.
 After you stitch check to see that the minky binding strip lays flat and then trim the excess minky.   
Lay flat and stitch in place. 
 On the back side of the quilt you will stitch the minky binding in place.   Fold the binding under slightly 
and use a serpentine stitch at 4 length.  

NOTE you can fold the minky slightly 
under or you can leave the minky edge raw. 
 You just want to stitch on the edge of the binding.
 This is the front of the minky quilt when the 
binding has sewn with the serpentine stitch.  
If you stay on the edge it will be right 
along the seam on the front also.  



Don't forget this week is
