One of the blogs I follow Little Birdie Secrets posted this recipe and it sounds like it would be a fun duo to take to a picnic or carry in.

The dip is a large tub of Cool Whip, 1 box instant vanilla pudding, 1 small can of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract mixed together.   The chips are tortilla sprayed with PAM non-stick coating with cinnamon sugar and baked at 350 degrees for 10 mins.

I have never been to the Cheese Cake Factory and tried this dish, but it the combination of avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, onion and cilantro rolled in a egg rolls sounds like an interesting dish to try when the weather gets warmer and the price of avocado's come down in price. 

The recipe is over at The Recipe Society here.  There is also a recipe for a dipping sauce, but I have never used Saffron in cooking before and I had to look up what a Tamarind so not sure about the sauce.

You Seriously Made That!?: Hair Rosette Tutorial

I love to try all sort of different techniques to make fabric flowers and do plan on making this one posted over at You Seriously Made That!?

It sounds similar to my Twisted and Stoned Flowers but instead of just twisting, you add folds which give it more dimension.

Baking Bites never fails to come up with unique twists on traditional item and this one is another gem.
I love the idea of having coconut and macadamia nuts in "magic cookie" bars.  Only down side is macadamia nuts are not locally grown and expensive where I live so will go on the wish list to try at some point in the future.

I wish I had seen this when my son was little as he used to carry around cars with him in a bag to play with.

Cook Clean Craft posted a tutorial on how to make this clever house that turns into a playmat out of 25x30 inch piece of green craft felt and a few other pieces of felt, some iron-on interfacing and velcro. This would be great to make and give as gift to a child to take along to keep them entertained and you can also store a few vehicles in it also to go down the road.
