Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni.

TUTORIAL :: SOCKS OWL | WHIMSY LOFT This is a very simple Tutorial to make a Sock Owl. I’m using the leggings sock… the one that goes from your ankle up to your knees. See photos below from left to right. Measure 5″ from the rubber and cut. We only need this part, the rest can be kept for other toys ;-). Turn the sock around and sew a straight line on the rubber part. Ones done, go to the other side (where we cut just now), and fold the opening into 3 section like the photos. The section that I am holding in the photo is about 1 cm and it’s the tail of the owl. Then continue to sew the other section (the legs sections should be longer that the tail). Turn the socks around. Here is that body of the owl. Now, use some felt to cut the eyes and nose. Sew the felt on the owl as shown in photos below. Then (refer bottom panel of photos), cut 2 pieces of felt and 2 pieces of socks in another colour (you can also use fabric). Use simple stitches to sew the pink socks on the felt, then sew them on the sides of the owl.
Family Takes Pictures of Brother's Room by Alanna Bennett | 11:54 am, August 16th, 2011 We at The Mary Sue represent sisters both eldest and youngest. Which is, in part, why we love this story so much. Because this kid, Brandon, went to summer camp for four weeks. His last words to his sister were “stay out of my room.” She did not obey, nor did any other member of their family. Follow the jump for highlights from the gallery of pictures from Brandon’s room. “My, what a spacious room you have bran! “…yet intimate enough to be used as a cozy nightclub.” The grandparents took a…siesta…in there, too, while he was gone. Dwight made an appearance. They celebrated Christmas without him. Some battles for intergalactic peace were fought. As well as some long-deserved Pac-Man revenge. Also, some gypsies came to stay, and they brought some lederhosen. Toy Story happened.
