Welcome to 2017. I know I’m not the first to say that, but I will anyway. For Christmas, Josh gave me a beautiful wall calendar with Bible verses for each month. I love it. I think that the verse for January is just right. “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the […]
Maybe I’m just really behind. I recently discovered miracle cleaner. White vinegar. I’ve used it to remove buildup in my Keurig. My mom used it many times on her coffee maker. Ok. That’s nice. So a couple months ago when I saw a video of a guy using it to remove buildup around his kitchen […]
The cousins are visiting today. So what do I do with 5 kids age 5 and under? Cookies!
As Easter Sunday was approaching I signed up to make something for our breakfast at church. I picked muffins from the list… but really wasn’t feeling like making muffins.

Leftovers. We save them because we have all the best intentions of using them up and saving money. But it’s hard. Reheated food is rarely as appetizing as the original spread. I like coming up with different ways to use those stacks of containers and clean up the fridge. Last week I made Ritz chicken with […]
Did you wake up this morning and remember it’s Cinco de Mayo? You want to make something fun that everyone will love but don’t have time to run to the store to pick up all of the special ingredients. Make this. My mom started making this for us when I was in high school. It […]
