DIY – Make Your Own Gatorade

Is there something that your husband loves?  Or maybe a few things that he enjoys?  Here are a few of my husband’s favorite things:  Snow skiing, ice cream, grandkids and Gatorade.  Boy does he LOVE himself some Gatorade!  Myself, I don’t particularly care for it.  I mean, it’s okay but it’s not really my drink […]

Bacon Pineapple Burgers

Are you ready for some……did ya think I was going to say “Football”?   Nope! I am ready for some….Summer!  This weekend we had beautiful weather that made me get excited for warmer nights and barbecuing outside. In anticipation of the longer days of summer, we decided to make these Bacon Pineapple Burgers that I […]

Super Stubborn Grease Stain Remover

How many times do you think I washed my daughter’s dress trying to get these grease stains out? Too bad I don’t have an answer for you. The answer is I washed it so many times I lost count. I used stain sticks, stain sprays, everything I could think of to no avail. I find […]

Salted Caramel Recipe with Salted Caramel Frosting

My memories are often connected with food. I once saw a woman I hadn’t seen in years, and as often happens, I couldn’t remember her name.  But I completely remembered what she had fed me for dinner all those years ago (she was the one who first introduced me to Fettuccini Alfredo. I still don’t […]

How to Wash Your Fruit

If only I had known sooner how to wash my fruit so it would last longer. But on a beautiful spring day several years ago ( before I knew that Pinterest could show me how to do everything better) I drove over an hour to a farm to pick strawberries only to find that I […]

Easy Shower Mold Solution

Aren’t imaginary friends wonderful? I loved mine growing up. Her name was Candy Dish. Creative, right? I have been told that I could describe her so vividly people thought she was real. I think they probably felt pretty foolish for believing a little girl really had a friend named Candy Dish. But, even after finding […]

Honey Kiwi Raspberry Fruit Dip

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best — ” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called. — […]

Marshmallow Krispie Brownies

Hmmmm….these Marshmallow Krispie Brownies just happen to have three of my favorite things. Brownies, marshmallows and Rice Krispies. Not sure how you can go wrong with this combination. The picture in this pin is so good that I just wanted to reach into my screen, grab one and take a bite. Thank you Yammie from […]

Chocolate Coconut Milk Mousse

Oh how I love chocolate! One of my fondest memories surrounding chocolate is about my maternal grandmother. When we were younger we would get to go spend the night at her house. No other siblings, just me and my grandmother. Of course I loved every minute of our precious time together. She had one very […]

Gluten Free Bagels

We have been in our current house since 2006. Moving means a lot of new things you have to get used to. In our previous town, stores were very close and convenient. For example, our favorite bagel shop was just around the corner from our house. Oh, how we loved that place. They made the […]
