A Christmas Giveaway coming soon

With the onset of Christmas season comes the season of gifts and giving. This is actually something I intended to do in November in line with my birthday celebrations as I did last year.

However due to unexpected challenges I had been facing, a number of things had to be pushed back. But no matter, as Christmas is also an opportune time to do this very special thing… no strings attached, just a my very own way to spread some Christmas love.

A Christmas Giveaway
Featuring none other than a Serenely Made old favourite

The B.U.R.P. Squad Kit

DSC03099

The term B.U.R.P. is inspired by the term ‘Based Upon Repeat Pattern’… and any parent will know that burps and messes are definitely a repeated pattern by all babies. So it does well to go into battle well armed with a kit like this.

The kit comprises of…
A burp cloth
Two cloth wipes
A multi-purpose clip

The cloth wipes convert into an instant bib with the aid of the bib clip included in the set. The bib clip itself can be used to convert a multitude of things (e.g. washcloths, tea towels, hankys) into an instant bib and can also double up as a toy clip, pacifier clip, mitten clips, sock clips or teether clip.

I’ll be posting up the details of the giveaway soon to time it in line with Christmas. So stay tuned!

How I use traditional muslin cloths as nappies

This post is for the benefit of my friend Stephanie who has recently made the decision to take the plunge into cloth diapering. She bought a few pieces of MCNs and is expecting a package of two dozen muslin flats. Although I've collected a good stash of modern cloth diapers, muslin flats still form a key part of my cloth diapering system. When I first started using this, I was a little dubious about the absorption power of this seemingly flimsy material. But it’s quite surprising how well it performs… and for such a small cost (sometimes free as these are commonly received as a gift from loving friends/relatives) it’s by far the most economical way to diaper a baby. The first fold I used was the traditional Chinese or Origami fold:

Unfortunately for me, I found that it didn’t hold up very well as my son is a rather heavy wetter and I had yet to discover the use of nappy covers. My other complaint about this fold is that the fold is not really concentrated around the main wetting area.…

An impossible cake

Every now and then, mamas  crave for something sinful and sweet… preferably with a touch of chocolate. Running after a toddler and breastfeeding a baby is really hungry work. I’m not really the sort of person who has their fridge and pantry stocked up with junk food and sweets. But I usually have all the basic ingredients on hand to whip up an indulgent treat when the craving hits.One evening I found myself longing for a bite of some chocolate cake… however being the end of the week, I was out of some core ingredients. Butter. Eggs. Milk. All necessary elements required to make a decent cake. Or so I thought.Then I found this impossible recipe. A cake with no butter, eggs and milk. They’re calling it Crazy Cake. Because you have to be crazy NOT to try it.It’s soooo easy to make, no creaming butter and sugar or electric mixers required. Apparently it can even be mixed together straight in the baking pan, no bowls necessary.Crazy CakeIngredients
1 1/2 cups plain flour
3 tbsp. cocoa

The fluffiest 7-up pancakes

So since our days of just the two of us, one of our favourite Saturday morning routines is to enjoy a slow leisurely breakfast together as a family.Sometimes we have french toast, or oatmeal porridge, or scrambled eggs and sausages, or  egg and toast muffins or homemade bacon and egg mcmuffins, or the classic favourite… Pancakes!I’m a big fan of Macdonald’s hotcakes. I just find their texture so irresistibly fluffy and light. I’ve tried numerous times to re-create the same fluffiness in my homemade pancakes but always to no avail… until recently when I discovered a magic ingredient… 7-up!And best of all, this simple recipe falls under my four ingredients category! So here’s the recipe…Super light and fluffy 7-Up pancakesIngredients
