It seems Winter has finally decided to move over and allow Spring to take over. The last few months have been bitter cold with lots of school closing and delays. It’s time to dig out the lawn mower, weed trimmers and shovels. The season change brings projects to life. You know those projects you’ve been dying to work on, started but haven’t finished or maybe something you’ve been planning. I
If you haven’t noticed or maybe you have, my recipe posts have doubled. After the latest update to WordPress, the plugin for the printable recipes I was using stopped me from editing old posts and adding new posts. The plugin was updated and they’re working on the problem. While I was waiting for an update, I search recipe plugins and found this really cool plugin that is adjustment friendly. How
Fresh, hot and oh so yummy Strawberry French Vanilla Donuts. I am a total sucker for fresh donuts and a hot cup of coffee. I really can’t think of a better morning pick me up than that. Instead of purchasing donuts from the local market I decided to try homemade donuts. I’ve seen a few homemade donut recipes on Pinterest and I’m intrigued with the donuts made from a cake
When we purchased the house I wanted to paint the trim but my dear hubby was against it. The trim needed serious help and it’s a lot of work to sand it down, stain and poly everything in the house.

Then add a fireplace, big screen TV and the option for furniture slowly disappears. What do you in this case? We saved space by mounting the tv on the wall
Peanut butter is a huge weakness for me and when you add a banana, it becomes even harder to resist. Over the weekend, I made peanut butter and banana paninis for my girls for lunch. It’s quick, easy and oh so yummy. If you’ve never tried a warm peanut butter and banana panini you must try them. You won’t be sorry. These paninis can be very messy, so watch out
Combining two rooms to create one large room isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a super dirty and lots of work. If you’re not up for the job or not sure how to pull it off, hire a pro. I consulted a home improvement friend of ours prior and during the entire process to ensure we were on the right track and to protect our home. I
My hubby and I recently purchased a brand new Panini Press. I’m a huge fan of sandwiches and a press takes sandwiches to a whole new level. I love how the Panini Press adds the crispiness to the outside edges without adding extra fat to the sandwich. It turns out so crispy and yummy. Assemble one, two, three or more right on the Panini Press and shut the lid.
