Joining me today for a discussion of how to wear animal print is my good friend Ashley, who gives some excellent tips on basic do’s and don’ts. We began the discussion before filming when I had told her about a woman I had seen at the grocery store who had on some really cute pieces […]
Here’s a list of water-packed foods that can also help keep you hydrated during the hot summer months, from momseveryday.com ……
Wow…that title sounds like a lot of good food for under $10.00 for a family of four…but it’s true! The word roulade simply means rolled. It looks (and sounds) fancy but it’s really easy. But if you don’t want to roll the tilapia, you can mound the crab stuffing on top of the fish and it […]
Throwing a baby shower for a friend or family member? Pregnant and trying to find maternity clothes you can actually afford?
I’ve read a lot of articles that talk about how junky and poorly made items are that you can pick up at dollar stores and while I agree that you have to double-check expiration dates (like I do even at the grocery store) and that toys can easily break (just like at any other store), for the most part, I enjoy shopping there and find great buys.
September is National Honey Month. Loaded with antibacterial and antifungal properties, honey has a multitude of benefits, in addition to sweetening foods. Honey was considered to be the “nectar of the Gods” by ancient Greeks and ancient Egyptians actually made offerings of honey to their Gods. They also used honey as embalming fluid and as […]
Sleep…it’s essential for a person’s health and wellbeing. Sounds easy: fall sleep, wake up feeling refreshed, full of energy, and alert. But in reality, getting a good night’s sleep for some can be difficult. In fact, according to the CDC, there is an estimated 50 to 70 million US adults who have a sleep or wakefulness […]
I started trying on bras and was frustrated that nothing looked or felt right. I asked the sales clerk, Michelle for help so she gave me a personal fitting and turns out, I was totally wearing the wrong size! I have been wearing a 34 B for and she measured me at a 32 C.
I’m a pretty decent cook if I do say so but desserts have never been something I was good at. And since I’m not a big dessert eater, I guess I just never really tried to master sweets. And I know that if I was baking up yummy dessert recipes on a regular basis, I’d […]
Besides filtering coffee, coffee filters can be used in lots of other ways around the house. Coffee filters are not only cheap, but can be recycled too. The fine-textured, food-grade paper of the typical coffee filter makes it perfect for so many things… MAKE A DISPOSABLE FUNNEL – If you need to pour something that’s […]
I’ve never been a huge fan of homemade lemonade, usually finding it overly sweet or too tart. The few times I have made it, the proportions were off and it tasted just ok, and not really worth the effort. But, the other day I saw a recipe in Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine (the August 2014 edition,) and […]
When choosing strawberries, choose plump, uniform in size, and brightly colored ones. And don’t wash them till you’re ready to use. The baby blue salad with balsamic vinaigrette and pecans is one of my favorites and the vinaigrette is so good, once you make it, you’ll be making it all the time!
We have lots of deer. Lots of hungry deer that like to munch on plants and flowers. For years we also had lots of foxes but unfortunately they died off from mange. Once our beautiful fox were gone, rabbits moved in, and believe me, for little animals, they can destroy a garden pretty quickly. Instead […]
Here’s an easy and delicious variation on the burger, perfect for a Memorial Day cook-out!
I feel like I’m a relatively informed person when it comes to choosing bottled water. I’ve kept up with the news on how to read the labels, making sure the bottled water I’m buying has the #1 PET or PETE symbol on the bottom, (which the government has deemed safe.) So when I came across an […]
As some of you have read, I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease, which has made me have to rethink a large bulk of the meals I make. And since I would rather eat a piece of plain old white bread versus a decadent piece of chocolate, this has been while not hard, a bit challenging. And pasta? […]
The sizzle, the smoke, the taste…it’s no wonder 77% of U.S. households own and use a grill. Not to mention the easy clean up, the fact you can grill practically anything and everything, it keeps your kitchen cool and it’s fun. It can also mean burned burgers, undercooked steaks, or tough, dry chops. But with […]
Baby and toddler clothes are so adorable…and so expensive. I was at a store the other day shopping for a baby shower and saw bibs priced at $6.99 and little gowns (that had less material than a wash cloth) starting at $9.99!! I thought, “who can afford to dress their baby with these prices??” If you’re fortunate enough […]
