This past week has been bittersweet for our family, we were saddened by the unexpected passing of my father-in-law. It is times like these when families come together to get through tough trials.

Coconut Peanut Chicken Satay Stri Fry - 30 minutes to a flavorful, healthy dinner that tastes amazing!

Coconut Peanut Chicken Satay Stir-Fry

Want to know how to get picky eaters to chow down healthy vegetables? You could try psychology. I hear it takes 25 introductions to new foods before kids will take to it.

Revolution Cookies

Mrs. Travers had a bone to pick with me. Mom and Dad weren’t so happy either. But a lot of it was Tracy’s (the middle sister’s) fault for teaching me “the trick”. Only I can’t really, solidly put full blame on her for teaching me, because I learned it from her by eavesdropping. That is […]

DIY 4th of July Bandanna Tablecloth Tutorial

4th of July Bandanna Tablecloth

This 4th of July Bandanna Tablecloth took me a year to finish. Not because it was hard to do. No, it is easy to make, which is part of its charm. It took a year to make because not all bandannas are made the same. They may be created by the same company, all marked as […]
