Hey Everyone! It’s time for a product review!
Today I’m sharing our (ChaosAndSilence, NateTubeAwesomeness and KaelynnIsRainbow) product review of Yummy Nummies products!
We first learned about Yummy Nummies from Chase’s Corner(Doh Much Fun) via Skylander Boy And Girl, check his video out here:
We’re keeping our eyes open for the Soda Shoppe Playset, you’ll see in our review of the Best Ever Burger Maker why.
The kids were super excited!
Here’s our video from when we made the donuts and cupcakes:
The overall consensus was that even though the donuts were tasty, the cupcakes were definitely the favorite. The kids had a lot of fun with these kits and we had a bit of the ingredients to set aside for another day of fun.
A few weeks ago I won a giveaway on Yummy Nummies facebook page.
Now, we had more donuts to make but also a new kit, the Best Ever Burger Maker kit!
Check our video review here:
We are definitely Yummy Nummies fans and look forward to trying out many of the other kits that they have available!
Well, every September brings our little town’s Ciderfest festival. Usually starts on Thursday and runs till Sunday.
Bridgetown Ciderfest usually has something for everyone.
The list of events always seem to include:
* Apple Pie Contest
* Cardboard Boat Reggatta
* Car Rally
* Rubber Duck Race
etc etc etc.
This year they have new events. I have entered myself and my little boy into the photography contest. Am super excited about this one!
Every year I keep saying I am going to enter the apple pie contest..even though I have never made an apple pie in my life! And every year I never enter.
Well, this year I vowed would be the year that I would get it done and enter!
I Entered an Apple Pie Contest – What The Heck Was I thinking?
I practiced making some pies with pre-made dough the week before. Definitely learnt some lessons for making the innards. The apple I had chosen was definitely not flavorful enough to be cooked.(I later found out that Gravenstein is the one to choose).
So I did some research….looked online for recipes…talked to the dough lady at the local farmer’s market.
*brief interruption* Okay so I need to stop with my story for a moment and tell you about the dough lady…OMGoodness! She’s amazing. Not only is she sweet and genuine…she is knowledgeable AND makes amazing pie dough!! She bought the recipe from a chef a few years ago, had it tested by food personnel and students at a local college. Then she designed her logo/brand/slogan/etc and got herself trademarked. Now she sells not only pre-made pies and patio pies, she sells her dough – vacuum sealed! You get two balls of dough which can either make (1) 2 crust pie or (2) 1 crust pies. Because it is vacuum sealed it will last in the fridge for 6 months and in the freezer for up to 1yr!
Because this was my first time making a pie using “fresh” dough, I was terrified, but, she said it was foolproof. I made 2 single crust pies and other then the innards not being what I had hoped for….the crust was amazing! Cooked perfectly! 🙂
Okay so, now back to my story:
With some new tips and knowledge about making pies I decided to embark on my first ever from scratch making of pies. Now, I wasn’t looking to make pretty looking pies….I just wanted them to taste good! 🙂
(If you want to know what adaptations I made feel free to ask and I will get it all typed up for you!)
So, I first made a small test pie with the help of my 4yr old little girl….
I decided to show some pictures of what things looked like along the way, as well as to give you some tips that I learnt!
Okay so I found a printed a little “book” on how to make pies..this is where I learnt a lot about making the crusts.
Visit: The Prepared Pantry to get your little “book” of tips and recipes! (ps: I have no affiliation with them and did not get paid or receive anything from them to post this)
and then ……………..
I proceeded to let my little guy make his to be entered into the contest as well….hey, why not? LOL.
And tomorrow morning I will be making another pie which will be the one I enter into the contest for my entry…..because my test pie….came out AWESOME!!!!!! I have already had a slice and I am trying not to go back to have another as I just started back on my weightloss journey…dang pie contest…LOL…
It wouldn’t be a day in our house unless something weird happened…my little girl wanted to play with the left over dough and graham crumbs….and I said sure why not….
Well, she started eating the graham crumb mixture……
So, I gave her some Benadryl and tossed her right into the tub….not sure what caused that reaction…maybe the cinnamon?? Yikes. Guess I won’t be letting her play with baking scraps anymore!
Well, I need to get some sleep if I am making another pie tomorrow morning amidst the normal daily chaos and the chaos of things already planned for tomorrow….somebody save me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*fingers crossed that my pie comes out well tomorrow!!*
