Peanut Butter Banana Muffins cooling on rack

Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Buttons on plate

Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel ButtonsThese sweet little snacks are incredibly easy to make. Hitting them with a dash of sea salt brings out the savoury in the pretzels, making this a nicely rounded off little dessert snack. They're versatile because you can use any type of candy in the middle, changing the whole flavour experience altogether. I used Caramel M&M's here. You can be picky about what colours you use to suit your event or holiday.

Using Yarn Scraps for Crochet AfghansI crochet afghans for a charity so I have lots of yarn on hand. I sometimes end up with short end pieces of yarn and use to throw them away. Now I save them, join them together and end up with my own variegated yarn. No waste now for what I once considered throw aways. Most of my afghans are granny squares so it works great color-wise.

Popsicle Stick Geometric SculptureThis intriguing sculpture is made out of a bunch of equilateral triangles made from popsicle sticks and hot glue.
