My Life In Progress
Every single one of us that has ever lived has harmed someone, somewhere at some point in our lives. Either we spoke to harshly towards someone or perhaps we told a lie thinking they wouldn’t know or maybe we forgot to do something that was important to someone else.
The Pub Burger? A simple sea salt and pepper seasoned burger topped with your lettuce and tomato. But then there are caramelized Vidalya onions and a sauce that is so smoky good! Unbelievable!
If you are needing a quick and easy breakfast or dessert idea, these Easy Cinnamon Sticks will be perfect. In just a few minutes time, you can be enjoying these sticks of yumminess all topped with a sweet icing.
The grandchildren and I visited the zoo. There was so much to see, explore and experience. Eli is three years old and his curiosity is in full swing. Hannah is almost two and she is fearless, exploring everything around her. So you can imagine how my senses were on full alert trying to keep them out of harm’s way and still have fun.
Think perfect chocolate dipped strawberries. Chocolate drizzled strawberries. It’s all about how to make a delicious dessert with a simple sauce. Chocolate sauce mind you. There’s now way around it. These are fun treats to make with kids. Or without. Just saying–I could eat these all day every day, with my kids or alone. And not even feel guilty.
These paper crafts are perfect for your next patriotic event! Add them to food on your table. Toss them in a centerpiece or plant or enjoy them by themselves in a cute mason jar! I love using hot glue with paper because there is very little dry time.
When did summer get here? I really can’t complain, living in Arizona, we haven’t had too many warm (hot) days. I can’t say the “H” word, because, we all know how warm it really gets – ha ha. Anyway, I have had this wreath idea in my head for at least a year, maybe two. I really did have a different picture in my head, but, I like it.
This is my latest clothes upcycle for the school carnival stall later this year.
Body Butter is a product I use every single day, especially during winter and summer. There is nothing more amazing for your skin, than a luxurious body butter that leaves your skin looking smoother than ever. Body Butter can be very expensive, and finding a scent you want to linger on your skin all day isn’t always easy.
“Now what the heck is Chocomole?”, you might be wondering. “Is it really guacamole but with chocolate?!”
This little project was so much fun and I got to use one of my many pieces of junk picked up from the side of the road. SCORE!
Recently I was trying to decide what flavor endless soup I wanted to make for our weeks’ worth of bone-warming lunches during this cold weather. I decided against the Mexican or Italian flavored that I usually go for and opted instead to make a good hearty stew-styled soup. It was delicious, and I wanted to share with our followers.
Cabbage is one of my favorite veggies to eat. And since I am still on my low-carb diet this side dish Oven Roasted Cabbage Steaks is delicious way to to enjoy your veggies and stay on track! I usually saute cabbage chunks in a little oil with salt and pepper. Add water and steam until tender. But this oven roasted version is so much easier and tastier.
How foods affect children’s behavior has been heavy on my mind as I’ve watched Mamas struggle with increasingly belligerent and aggressive kids. This topic is just too important to ignore.
As some of you know any project for me that involves a pallet is a favorite of mine. This American Flag Pallet Project is so easy and has become one of my favorite since last year!
Mixed Media is fun and creative. Stretch your creative muscles and just explore what you can do. This project started out one way and by the end, it was just what I wanted.
When I was a kid, I hated English class. Though I was good at it–it was just one of those things that came so easily. But it bored me to tears. (So it makes sense that I went on to get a BA in English, right? 😛 )
Some people have a harder time understanding English. I have a cousin who excels at math but can’t write a coherent sentence to save his life. Which is fine, because he doesn’t work in a field that requires writing skills.
This cool and refreshing Sangria Ice is a perfect summer treat for grown ups!
