DIY Grilled Hawaiian Pizza

Grilled Hawaiian Pizza Recipe

Summertime and grilling go hand in hand. But by about mid-summer, we typically get in a grilling rut, grilling up the same steaks and burgers week after week. Last month, we discovered the delicious results of our first grilled pizza. It was great, but we wanted to step it up a notch and come up with something […]

Easy Roasted Potato Crisps ~ $100 Visa Giveaway

Roasted Potato Crisps

When people tell me a recipe is easy, I typically take “easy” with some skepticism. My idea of easy is much simpler than most people. I’ve been known to ruin easy recipes because I typically need an easy recipe when I have no time or patience — it needs to be one to two steps and done. At […]

DIY Coffee Ice Cubes For Iced Coffee

International Delight Iced Coffee Cubes

Watered down iced coffee? Not any more! A few weeks ago, my  husband visited the new bagel shop in town and ordered an iced coffee.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Kefir Power Smoothie

Chocolate Strawberry Power Smoothie Recipe

One of the pitfalls of working from home is that I sit 20 feet from the pantry. Which means when I get the munchies — watch out.

I have a new, healthier, alternative to my snacking challenges — a Chocolate Covered Strawberries Kefir Power Smoothie.

DIY Wine Cork Monogram Craft

Monogram Wine Cork Craft

Do you save the cork when you open a bottle of wine? Every time we open a bottle, we toss ours in to a tall vase. We’ve been saving for years, and now that our cork vase was full (again) I decided it was time to do something with all of those corks – it was craft time.

DIY Chevron Pencil Holder

A few months ago, we found K the perfect little desk, and I have been slowly filling it with fun accessories. But I haven’t been able to find her a pencil holder that I really liked. Temporarily she had them on a small tray, but they were getting out of control. So I decided to make one.
