Homemade Laundry Detergent  Recently I have been trying to make my own cleaning supplies. Many times making your own products at home is cheaper, plus I like knowing exactly what I’m cleaning with! Laundry is a chore everyone has to do, especially when you have kids, there is always something that needs to be washed. I often find myself re-cleaning a lot of clothes because my washer or better yet, my detergent isn’t doing its job. I’ve tried both expensive and non-expensive laundry detergents. But still, haven’t found the perfect detergent. SO, I figured why not try making my own laundry detergent, I can putRead More →

  Ways To Actually Save Money Everyone is always looking for ways to save money, but they don’t always know where or how to start. Saving money isn’t something you learn overnight. You have to figure out where your money is going and where you can cut back. Before I got married I wasn’t worried about saving money, I didn’t know the importance of having a savings fund. And I surely didn’t realize that a hundred dollars really gets you nothing in adult life other than a lot of cheap wine! Being an adult is learning how to stretch that $100 & still afford that bottle of wine whileRead More →

Seven months ago I was very pregnant, uncomfortable, and nauseous. I’m sure many of you can relate. I also bet you’ve heard at least one person tell you to relax while you’re pregnant? I now understand why everyone that has kids told me to relax. BUT, It’s hard to relax when you are bringing your first baby into the world. Luckily, I’m going to share some ways you CAN & should relax. During my 9 months of being pregnant, I had about 2 months (maybe) with no nausea, then you add anemia into the mix near the end, and I just didn’t feel good. But thereRead More →

Chili is one of my all-time favorite meals, not just because it’s delicious, but it’s a meal you put in the crockpot in the morning and then you are done with dinner- it cooks itself all day with minimal attention & gives you tons of leftovers for the next day! I’ve found that chili can be made so many different ways, and I am constantly trying new things. I usually just use whatever I have on hand & it always turns out great. Chicken Chili: First, you want to put all your canned items into your crockpot: Tomato sauce, diced tomatoes & corn. You canRead More →

  NHL playoffs are in full-swing so that means appetizers & treats! Over the weekend I was trying to think of something super simple to make right before the hockey game started. I wanted something sweet and delicious! So I put together this FOUR ingredient sweet snack- Cinnamon & Sugar Chocolate Croissants!! Since this recipe is so simple this will not be a long how-to post! It is, however, a great treat for kids to make and parents to enjoy! First, preheat your oven to 375° – I used Pillsbury crescents and followed the baking instructions on the back. Next, place all your crescent rolls, individually, onRead More →

If you are anything like me then you love candles. I can remember from a very young age getting new candles for every season & holiday. Sometimes I would go through candles in just a few days because I loved the scent. To this day I still have candles all over my house, some for decoration & some for using. My new obsession is wood wick candles if you haven’t checked them out I highly recommend it. They crackle like a fire and have a longer burning life. Anyway, after using candles for so long, I started to wonder what I could do with all those jars. IRead More →

Have you ever gone to clean out your fridge and noticed your vegetables have started to sprout? I have! Instead of throwing out those sprouted veggies, you can regrow them again, and again. If you get really good at it, you can start an entire garden just from the fruits & veggies you have already bought. I have always loved gardening, I grew up with a big yard with tons of space to grow all the fruits and vegetables I wanted. Since I’ve moved and don’t have much of a yard. So, I brought gardening indoors! Not only is it fun, but it also addsRead More →

Since I became a mom I’ve learned that sometimes your house will be messy, tasks won’t always get completed, laundry will constantly need to be cleaned, and you will forget things unless you write them down. Every mom, especially stay-at-home moms feel that their home is supposed to be perfect. I know that’s how I feel. Before having my son, I could clean when I wanted and do things as they needed to be done. But once I became a mom, things changed, and I have no complaints! Now, six months later I can say that I learned how to keep my house clean, organizedRead More →

Sunday mornings have always been my big breakfast day. I have a couple go-to recipes, but I was looking for something new and easy to make. That’s when I tried making baked apple pancakes!  It was delicious! My husband has asked me to make them multiple times now, even for dessert! They aren’t your typical pancake, they are thin, but poofy at the same time. And the sweetness of the apple ties it together making it super delicious.  The one thing I love about making this recipe in the mornings is that I am always able to make my pancake mix, put all my ingredientsRead More →
