7 Adorable Eat-in Kitchens

I love the seating arrangement! Great way to get a lot of people (or kidd0s!) around the table. | BHG

Savannah’s dining room is perfection! The navy hutch matches the navy polka dotted seat cushions. The yellow table is genius and I still can’t get over the light fixture | Read about her dining room here.

I love love love all the bright color happening in this little breakfast nook! | HGTV

I love the farmhouse feel and the different seating! | Adventures in Decorating

So I’m not sure I would ever do this in my own home but the black and white and gold are amazing together!! I could see this color combo in a formal dining room. I love the gold base on the table too! | source

dining room 1

Our kitchen is teeny tiny but I love our little breakfast nook. Since this photo, I’ve painted it grey beneath the chair rail, added polka dots to the curtains and I’m currently working on painting a new dining table and chairs set! I plan on painting it the same as this set but the new table is a bit bigger.

The tulip table combined with the MCM chairs is dreamy! I love the EAT on the wall too! | BHG

Fresh Peach Dessert

Hey, Classy Clutter readers! It’s Adell, from Baked in Arizona.  I am excited to share another great recipe with you today!

 

This recipe was sent to me from my sister-in-law. Her husband has a total sweet tooth (almost as much as me) and this is by far one of his most favorite desserts! My family went crazy over it too. Just make sure you use fresh (not canned) peaches.

My grandpa grew up in Utah where they grow some delicious peaches. After one bite of this dessert he said “Now those are peaches!” haha! I loved it cause he could tell right away that I used fresh peaches and absolutely loved the dish. I don’t know about you but making food (treats!) that my family loves brings me so much joy!

 

The baked graham cracker crust is followed by a layer of peach jello & fresh peaches all mixed together. Then you top it off with a sweet cream cheese mixture and sprinkle more graham crackers on top! Just writing about it is making my mouth water :).

If you want to make this a no-bake dessert you don’t have to bake the crust. I prefer it with the crust baked. It makes it easier to cut and serve and adds a nice crunch on the bottom. But if you want to just press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and not bake it, that will work as well.

I hope you enjoy this cool, creamy, peachy treat as much as we did!
Fresh Peach Dessert

Ingredients:

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 packages graham crackers, crushed (or 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 5 cups fresh peaches, peeled & diced.
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3 ounce) package peach jello
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton cool whip
Instructions:
  1. FOR THE CRUST: Crush the graham crackers in a food processor (or zip top bag with a rolling pin) and place in a bowl. Add the sugar. Melt the butter and pour over the crushed crackers & sugar. Stir till all crumbs are moist. Take out 2 cups and set aside for the top. Now add 1 tablespoon water. Press into the bottom of a 13×9″ pan & bake for 8 minutes at 375. Allow the crust to cool. (For a no-bake dessert you can omit the baking of the crust. It will be more crumbly when serving).
  2. FOR THE FILLING: Peel and cut the fresh peaches into about 1 inch pieces and set aside. Bring the water, sugar and cornstarch to a boil. Add the package of peach jello and stir till dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add the peaches once cooled and gently pour over cooled crust. Chill until set (about 2 to 4 hours)
  3. FOR THE TOPPING: Cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fold in the cool whip. Spread over the top of the set jello filling. Chill to set and top with the remaining graham cracker crumb mixture before serving.
  4. NOTES: 2 packages of graham crackers is about 18 sheets or 2 cups crushed. To get 5 cups of diced peaches, I used 7 small/medium peaches.
Here are some other recipes you may want to check out on Baked in AZ!

How to sew a pillow case

Alright, you guys. We’re going back to basics today. If you follow us on Instagram (and you should!!! @classyclutter) you may remember me busting out my sewing machine to work on some pillows for the boys’ superhero room makeover. Sewing pillow cases is super easy but when it comes to measuring and cutting, I’d rather have a tutorial with it all in front of me instead of trying to figure it all out as I go. Well, I did figure it out as I went this time but I thought some of you may want to have this tutorial handy in case you want your own custom pillow cases!

KB Cute Custom Quilt 3

I was going to buy sheet sets for my boys from Land of Nod that were super cute but at $70 each (and I need 2!) it just wasn’t gonna happen. I ended up buying $15 sheet sets from Target and adding this fun pillow because that’s really all that shows when we make the beds anyway.

How to sew a pillow case

First, cut out two rectangles 22 x 36″.

How to sew a pillow case

With right sides together, stitch around the two long sides and one short side.

Stitch around the edges

On the opening, iron and fold about 1/2″ hem.

How to sew a pillow case

Fold down 3-4″ and press with an iron. Stitch it along the folded edge.

Back to School Ideas

If you haven’t noticed yet, we’ve had a bunch of back to school ideas for you this year! Reason being, Savannah and I both have our oldest kiddos starting Kindergarten and our 2nd oldest kids in Preschool! It’s SO bittersweet for me because my 5 year old gets bored easily at home and is ready to be challenged a bit. We definitely run out of things to do that can entertain both my 5 year old and my 1 year old. I mean, you can only go to the park so many times and play legos for so many hours! ;) They’re great at entertaining each other most of the time but like I said, we’re all ready for some structure and routine. I’ve rounded up a ton of fun Back to School ideas for you today! Everything from lunch ideas to First Day of School printables to Teacher’s gifts and more! Hope you enjoy them and can put most or all of them to great use!

Teacher’s Survival Kit Gift Idea – this is awesome to give your child’s teacher on the first day!

Here’s another super cute gift idea for teachers! This DIY School Jar is definitely going to impress your kid’s new teacher!

I LOVE this DIY insulated lunch box for the kid’s to take to school. My son would love this fabric choice too!

First Day of School Printable Signs – Click here to go to the downloads for each grade.

These felt pencil bookmarks are so darling and super easy to make!

School Lunch Food Printable for the fridge – These keeps lunch items off limits for other meals!

These healthy school lunch ideas will help eliminate the stress of packing lunches in the morning.

School Clothes Labels – I LOVE to lay out my kids’ clothes for the next day and this is a dream come true for my over organized, OCD tendencies. *winks*

These After School Snack ideas are good enough for parents and kiddos! Yummy!

School Money Printable – Sending money with kiddos can be nerve wrecking and probably not the best idea to hand your youngin’ a wad of cash. I love this idea so there’s no mistake where the money needs to go when they get to school.

Don’t head to the store without these Back to School Checklists for each age level. These are the basics and essentials for each age.

My kid’s will LOVE these Silly Stories to fill out. Like MadLibs! So cute and fun!

Back to School Ideas

So do your kiddos start school soon? Already started? Mine don’t start until September!

Homemade Peppermint Ice Cream

With the holidays right around the corner this is the perfect thing to bring to a party. My aunt Debbie would always bring homemade peppermint ice cream to family parties and it was always my favorite thing. Recently, I got my very own Ice cream machine and I knew that my very first ice cream favor would be peppermint.  It’s easy and it also makes quite a bit of ice cream. Better yet you can use this recipe for all different favors. If you want a fruit favor, substitute the peppermint for fruit of your choice, or if you want vanilla just increase the vanilla to 3 tsp.

peppermint ice cream4

This is what you will need.

3 eggs

3 cups of sugar

1 can of evaporated milk

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1 pint whipping cream, whipped

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 packages of peppermints

Unwrap one package of peppermint and put on the stove with the whole milk and melt the peppermint on medium heat, and let cool. Beat eggs, sugar, and evaporated milk. Crush the other package of peppermints and stir into the egg mixture and pour into the ice cream freezer machine.  Add whipping cream and vanilla then add in the melted peppermint but be sure it is cooled or the hot peppermints with cook the eggs. Fill to the line of the ice freeze with whole milk. Follow the directions of your machine to make the ice cream.

Then, enjoy! You will love it!!! Promise!
