Most food labels will let you know if you should refrigerate that item or not but what about produce? Or what if you could make an ingredient last twice or even three times longer if you simply stored it in the fridge? Here’s a list of items that should either always be kept in the refrigerator […]
A lot of those beginning plant and flowers are really weeds. I have a difficult time identifying what to pull and what to keep, especially before they mature. Then I found this great guide.
The other day I was in the Dollar Tree and saw Eggies (an As Seen On TV product) that promised to hard boil eggs without the shell. Now since it was only a dollar, I decided I had to try it.
I was so excited to make this lime tart recipe that I ran across in my latest Good Housekeeping magazine (April 2017) because it looked delicious and it was gluten-free. I have never been that great of a baker and since being diagnosed with celiac disease I certainly haven’t been that creative when it comes […]
Besides cooking on the grill while enjoying time with my husband and a glass of wine, my favorite thing to do in the spring and summer is to garden. The perfect day would actually include gardening for about eight hours and then lounging on the deck, sipping wine while watching my husband grill lots of goodies […]

Spring is in the air and garage sales will soon be popping up everywhere…here’s a few things to look for when shopping for children’s items:
My least favorite item to shop for is a bra. I will put off buying a new one until I have literally worn the life out of mine, with the straps stretched out, offering no support, and certainly not looking as nice as what I’m wearing on the outside. Several years ago I decided to […]
As I’ve been spring cleaning and organizing, I came across some pencils. A lot of pencils that have never been used. What to do with them all? Here’s some awesome and creative uses for your old pencils and erasers.
Even though I’m not as much of a DIY crafter as I once was, I still enjoy looking at different project ideas and passing them on. My favorite ones to share are those that don’t cost a ton of money and aren’t so complicated that you need a million different supplies and hours in order […]
I just found two completely opposing views on how to launder your bed sheets to make the last longer. What way do you recommend?
My girlfriend is pregnant with her first child and much to her dismay, discovered how expensive maternity clothes are. And it’s not like you can just do without them! Now prior to her pregnancy, she was one of my friends who thought thrift store shopping was kind of “icky”….now, she’s wanting to go shopping at Goodwill or arc every week because she has found some fabulous maternity clothes there and discovered, no, they are not “icky” and they are CHEAP (without looking cheap).
Ten years ago today, a handsome man dressed in a suit and tie, showed up at my door for a first date. (I mention the suit and tie because I appreciate when someone “dresses” for the occasion.) Though we had chatted on the phone and communicated online, we had never actually met in person. I […]
I’m not a mixed drink kind of girl, but these Shimmering Shamrock and Lucky Leprechaun drinks were delicious!
I found and made this delicious hearty Irish Beef Stew last year for the first time and it’s oh so good!
I recently had a routine mammogram which thank goodness, was just fine. While at the imaging center the mammogram technician asked me why I had skipped several years since my last one and quite honestly, I for some reason had thought the guidelines had changed a bit and that I didn’t need a yearly test. […]
Chia seeds are one of the healthiest foods on the planet that benefits both the body and brain. And they are so, so easy to add to your diet. I was actually doing some research on natural protein sources and chia seeds kept popping up, along with all their health benefits, which made me curious […]
It’s long been a tradition to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, protecting you from a “pinch.” By buying thrift/consignment items, you can not only wear green, but “be green”… looking stylish, recycling and saving money in the process. I visited two of my favorite local stores (Discover Goodwill and Ashley’s Attic,) to find some […]
