DIY Felt Donut Treats

Valentine’s Day always reminds me of chocolates and sweet treats. This year I came across the cutest tutorial for felt donuts. These make a super cute display and they won’t add to your waistline!

All you need is some felt for the donut base & “icing”, fiberfill, thread & small needle, and beads for “sprinkles” & “nuts”.

I hope you enjoy this little project and fill your table up with felt donut goodies! Let me know how this goes for you.

You can find me on Pinterest, Instagram, & Facebook. Come say hello!

My Family Dinner Favorites: Double-Cheese Chili (photo: kraft.com)

The Dimestore Gypsy

I hope you’re staying warm where you are. Here in Texas it’s probably the coldest it’s been in a long time!

Today I’m sharing this double-cheese chili from kraft.com. It’s perfect for these cold winter nights. I tweaked a few things to our liking and it was really good.

I  used 90% lean ground beef and seasoned it to my liking. After adding the remaining ingredients, I added a quarter cup of pace mild picante sauce (for extra flavor and veggies), a dash of garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and hot sauce.

To serve, I added the cheese like so in the bottom and ladled a nice hot spoonful of chili on top. I also added a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped green onion. Add some Jiffy homemade cornbread and this meal is complete!

If you try this recipe let me know what worked for you!

Stay warm friends,
