I got an invitation to appear on KKTV’s Moms Everyday with host Jen Lennon to tape a segment for a Thanksgiving Special, which I of course said yes to. But because I had been busy helping my son move, I had neglected email for a couple of days and didn’t read the message until the day before filming. I […]
I absolutely love all of these ideas on creating art for your home, using items you love, collect, and/or probably already own or can pick up at thrift stores and garage sales. Simple, easy and super affordable… These are old postcards I picked up at a flea market for 25 cents each and the frames […]
These pumpkin cheesecake bars are super easy to make due to using a boxed pound cake mix. They take about 10 minutes to prep, 30 minutes to bake and taste so good.
Though I haven’t tried any of these cocktails personally…they all look delicious and would make for a nice addition to holiday get-togethers. You don’t have to have an entire bar set up with hundreds of choices when hosting a dinner. One “signature” drink for cocktails is just fine. Here’s 17 recipes for something a little different […]
Sore muscles? Backache, neck pain or headaches? Here’s a list of 6 “superfoods” that can actually help with chronic pain.
Cold weather can be deadly for pets. We all know (hopefully) that pets should not be left out in the elements when the temperature is too cold, especially without some type of shelter and fresh water. (Remember, when it’s freezing outside, the water in bowls will freeze.) *Yes, this deer is in our yard but I […]
Veterans Day…a day we honor veterans of the armed forces; a day we honor the duty, sacrifice and service of America’s veterans of all wars. To those who have served we thank you. You protect us and our country, keeping us safe as we go about our daily lives. Your sacrifice not only includes the […]
This is delicious, moist and the tarragon smells so good while the chicken is cooking. If you don’t need or want a big turkey for Thanksgiving, this would be perfect for a smaller, more intimate meal.
I hope these examples spark some ideas on how you can create a holiday feel to your dinner table…no matter what your budget is. Heck, even if you’re using paper products, you can give your table a festive feel.
I saw this very short video from buzzfeed.com on a friend’s Facebook page and it was so informative, I just had to share it. The video shows you how to cut/prep a kiwi, pomegranate, mango, orange, strawberry and watermelon. The techniques are super easy. I especially liked the way they peeled a kiwi, without losing most […]
I’ve seen commercials for this Dutch Glow Amish Wood Milk for a couple of years now and had been wanting to try it but didn’t want to order it and pay those shipping and handling charges that can end up costing more than the product itself. So when I saw it at Bed Bath & […]
I love slow cooker cooking, especially in the cooler months when I tend to make heartier soups, stews, and casserole-style dishes. With crockpot meals you can throw everything into one pot and forget about it for hours, use less expensive meats since the slow-cooking method will make them more tender, and you have less mess to clean […]
Seriously, just by dry brushing your body everyday for a minute or two…You get improved circulation, stimulate hormones, firm skin, discharge metabolic wastes, eliminate toxins, open pores, help with muscle tone, and rejuvenate the nervous system.
This dish is so delicious! Rich and hearty without being heavy…perfect for these cooler evenings. I found this recipe in Clinton Kelly’s new book, “Freakin’ Fabulous on a Budget.” While this may sound like it’s expensive or complicated, it’s not.
I absolutely love these clever ways to repurpose items you typically throw away. I’ve seen a few of these ideas before but most I had never even thought about. Two of my very favorites…using an empty egg carton to hold cupcakes, making them easy to transport, and wrapping empty boxes with newspaper to make your […]
No matter how many trick-or-treaters we have come to the door, we always have leftover candy. And if I don’t do something with it, other than just leaving it in the cabinet, I’ll end up eating every single piece. You can easily turn the candy into other types of treats, use it for other occasions or even donate it….here’s a few ideas.
I make deviled eggs for any and every get-together we have. They are inexpensive and easy to make and you can add different ingredients to change things up.
Whether you have kids going trick-or-treating this year or are hosting a Halloween party, here’s some safety tips you can use to help keep everyone safe. I personally use battery-operated candles in our jack-o-lanterns and luminaries and make sure all our of our electrical cords for outdoor lights are kept off sidewalks and the driveway […]
In my October issue of EveryDay with Rachael Ray, I saw these fun and spooky pumpkin decorating ideas.
This is really, really delicious and didn’t take much prep work. And oh my gosh, the house smelled so good as it baked. I think this would be fun to bake in the really small pumpkins too for individual sized portions…more work scooping all the pumpkins but fun for the family or company. I will make for our Thanksgiving dinner too.
