Ina's recipe for Carrot and Pineapple Cake and it was seriously the best carrot cake ever. Super moist and dense. The only thing I'd change is that I'd use salted butter in the frosting, I think it needed another element. I don't like frostings that just taste sweet, you know?
A little friend of ours was having her 2nd birthday, so I whipped up this quick smock using a pattern from Amy Karol's Bend-the Rules Sewing. I wanted to do a trial run of the pattern before making one for Christmas this year for my little man. Our friend is a very girly girl, so I chose this blue fabric with little blue roses and a wide red bias tape for the edges. It's made from one piece of fabric, but took me a surprisingly long time to make (I don't know why, but Lord knows I'm not the fastest sewer.)

After doing lots of baking with the wee one, I decided he is definitely due for a mommy-made apron. I searched around online and found these easy looking instructions here.
