Chocolate pudding is always a favorite with kids. Add some berries or fruit and it's a fairly healthy treat! This version is gluten free and dairy free and only has a few ingredients. Plus it is sweetened with natural maple syrup. Yum!
Serve the pudding in cute little dessert glasses for a fun party idea!
Or dip some berries into the pudding before it sets for chocolate covered berries. Fun for girls' night out!
Or make a sweet after school snack.
14 oz full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup maple syrup (this makes rich pudding, add more syrup for more sweetness)
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
Now go enjoy this guilt free treat!

Here's a few of the things I loved from last week:
Fox Coat by Falafel and the Bee (are you singing it now?)
I've made a few things too! Did you miss them?
Now what have you made?
Today I released a new sewing pattern at GoToPatterns! The Belinda Dress is one of my favorites so far! It's what I call "casual comfort". My 5 year old has been wearing all of her Belinda Dresses non-stop, even to bed. That's a win! And even better? It's ON SALE today only!
I designed this pattern as part of the Designer's Challenge. It's a fun challenge I put out to other designers to create something unique to the market, or at least a challenge to them. We've got lots of designers participating and there have been some great releases so far.
They love the pockets. Love, love the pockets.
Making and sewing DIY clothes and accessories for school aged kids can be tricky. Most are no longer interested in frilly dresses with novelty prints. Chosing fabric and patterns can be tough and sometimes you sew for hours only to have a less than enthusiastic recipient. You can see my Top 10 Tips for Chosing Fabric for Children's Clothing but it isn't just about fabric. The patterns make a HUGE difference. And don't forget accessories!
I'm hoping to showcase some Elementary Styles over the next few months to help you choose patterns that work well and are appropriate for children, yet grown up enough for children in school.
My girls are saving money right now to help send kids to school in Africa where my brother lives. They each earned money for this photo shoot. It was COLD outside!
I had so much fun posting the Will Smith Video yesterday that I had to show you another fun one today. It's Thanksgiving Week here and I'm busy doing non-blog related things so please enjoy this Hunger Games trailer from Honest Trailers! It's quite funny and pokes fun at the movie. I'm a huge fan of the books and movies and thought this was hilarious. *note that there is some adult language bleeped out in this video so you might not want to watch around children.
Well, what did you think?
If you've been having a bit of a down day then this video is for you. I have watched this a few too many times. If you ever watched The Fresh Prince then you'll want to watch this through to the end.
Ok, now that you've seen it, let's forget about the "Hello! Hello!" and talk about how awesome it is to see Will & Alonso together again??? And Jazzy Jeff?? Brings back good memories.
Now tell me this doesn't make you happy.
Well, it's come time that my perfect eye sight has faded and I'm the lucky winner of farsightedness AND nearsightedness. You know what that means, right? BIFOCALS. What? I'm only 35, this isn't fair!
So I've been looking for the perfect glasses. I've gone into every discount place and local strip mall eye shop just to check out the selection. I'm never in love with anything!!
However, I've finally found four pairs I like!. I did the in-home try on for Glasses.com. If I had an ipad I could have done virtual try on, which would have been so nice! But I got to feel these on my face, and there's something to say for that.
