We know this is a busy time of year for those of you with children going back to school.  The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time:  new friends, new teachers, new experiences....and probably new shoes, too!  We noticed with our own kids that the first few days of school were a good time to encourage some new routines or good habits.  With all the exciting changes, sometimes we could sneak in a few of our own without the kids noticing! Setting up a good after school routine can ... Read more

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. You could try making a game of it. We used to call broccoli “trees” and cauliflower “clouds”. My daughter loved french fries when […]

Two Two Easy Peach Cobbler - This recipe calls for two of everything. So simple, you will want to make it again and again.

Two Two Easy Peach Cobbler

Revolution Cookies are a cookie the Founding Fathers would have been proud to eat. With oatmeal, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries and blueberries these red white and blue all American cookies are truly fantastic! #Cookie #Cookie Recipe

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 […]

Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos

I love these Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos because you make the chicken filling in the crockpot. Walking in the door to the smell of this flavorful creamy chicken filling was heaven! Right away my kids wanted to know what was cooking in the crockpot. I love pretty much everything about crockpot cooking. It’s easy, the […]

Aragula-and-Grilled-Pear-Salad-Collage (1)

Arugula and Grilled Pear Salad

This arugula and grilled pear salad combines the peppery flavor of arugula with the sweetness of grilled pears tossed in tangy Dijon vinaigrette dressing. I grew up with iceberg lettuce. I only thought lettuce was iceberg lettuce. I had no idea the wondorous varieties of lettuces in this vast world. After all, mom did the […]

Magic Wool Dryer Balls

DIY Wool Dryer balls? What are they and why would I want to make some? Those were my thoughts when I found this pin from  Holly Gray at Caleigh’s Corner.  My second thought was, loving the idea of not having to purchase dryer sheets, even better, I like the idea of not finding used dryer sheets on […]

Super easy trick to stop your bathroom mirror from fogging!

Stop your bathroom mirror from fogging!

Today I am going to get real. Like in real pictures of my real master bathroom. And my real master bathroom is real small.  But it has a real large mirror. That means that whenever I take a shower, the whole bathroom fogs up and my hubby can’t see in the mirror to shave. So […]

How To Peel An Egg With a Spoon

How to Peel an Egg With a Spoon

One dozen eggs. That is how many eggs my kids went through one Mother’s Day when they were trying to make me Belgian Waffles.
