Gifting with Baby Boden {Review + Giveaway}

September 18th, 2014

I was absolutely delighted when Boden asked if I would like to check out  one of their new baby gift set. This would make the most amazing shower gift; it includes a one piece romper with matching bib, hat, and blanket. It comes in three different prints. I am partial to the London because it is adorable.

Truman has perfected his grumpy old man face.

He secretly likes hats.

One of the reasons I love Baby Boden so much is the quality. These clothes stand up to washing. The green pants I had on Truman are the same exact color today as when I received them despite numerous washings; they are just capris or he would still be in them. Boden clothes are definitely clothes that can be passed on or passed down to numerous through numerous children.

Reversible Blanket!

The packaging for the baby gift set is adorable. You wouldn’t even need to wrap this if it were a shower gift. It’d be a great group gift – for someone at work or from a group of friends. Then it would even be an inexpensive way to go for a group, it’s only $50/$60 depending on various sales or coupon codes, but seems so fancy! (Well. It IS so fancy.) And if that is just a smidge too much, there is the HotchPotch gift set that includes a romper, booties and hat in a super cute half and half print for slightly less. I think i might be ordering the velour set for myself/Truman for Christmas. Those stripes are just so cute I can’t stand it.

The sizing runs true to size to a little bit generous. Truman is seven months and a hefty twenty pounds and is shown in the 6-9 Month size romper. He is mostly in 9M sizes of other brands.

Truman knows what instagram wants. (Also, he’s standing now. NBD)

Apple Chips

September 12th, 2014

We have so many apples this year, I don’t even know what to do with them all. It’s the first year in this house, so I am still figuring out what works for us to use them up. Something that was a hit for sure – apple chips. I also discovered that I do, in fact, like apple chips; I don’t like dried apples, the chewy kind. These are perfect and crisp all the way through.

Apple Chip Recipe

To make:

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees
  • Slice 2 or 3 apples as thinly as you can. I used a V-slicer (which is like a mandoline). A food processor might also work.*
  • Spread apples in a single layer on a baking sheet on top of parchment paper or a sil-pat*. My oven can do two sheets at a time
  • Bake for 90 minutes, turn each apple over and bake for an additional 60 minutes
  • After the total 2.5 hour cookie time, start checking for doneness. They should be crisp all the way through with only they smallest amount of chewiness, if any. The apple slices will also be a light tan.
  • Turn off the oven and leave the sheets in to cool all they way. (If making multiple sheets, take them out)
  • Store in an air tight container for up to a week. I read online that you can store them for longer, but we have never had them last long enough to find out.

Cinnamon-Sugar option: mix equal amounts of cinnamon and granulated sugar and sprinkle on one side before baking

We started picking our apples last weekend. So far we have only picked on of the trees and have more apples than we can handle. Recipe links and storage tips welcome in the comments!
