Are you ready for some football food? I love football and on game day I like making stuff to snack on. This is the one day of the week that I don’t concern myself with things like fat and calories, and I always keep it fun! A favorite of ours is Loaded Baked Potato Skins. These are always a hit on game day, but also for taking to potlucks and parties. I have never had leftovers when I make these! Here are some more fun ideas for you to try on game day: ***Pepperoni Roll-Ups ***Mini Garlic Cheeseburgers ***Hissy Fit Dip ***Sweet and Salty… Read More

I found a new toy…hardware cloth! And it’s a fun one, but I will say right from the start: you can poke an eye out with this stuff! I am totally serious. This wire is great to play with and I love that it keeps it’s shape much better than chicken wire, but it sure is poke-y. Wearing gloves is a great idea when working with hardware cloth. At first I didn’t, and I ended up with a few cuts on my fingers. No big deal, but I think you could end up with a good gouge if you weren’t… Read More
This Lemon Bread! So lemony and sweet. It is seriously good and hard to stop eating. Lemons are my favorites (well, among my many favorites!). They are pretty, the smell wonderful, and they make all manner of yumminess! The sweet-tart thing they do is perfection, if you ask me. Making quick breads is a great way to have breakfast and snacks on hand, and in general quick breads freeze well. To freeze this one I would save the lemon juice and sugar sauce for when you are ready to eat it. Otherwise it might make the bread a bit soggy. Be… Read More

So, is it just me, or are you cozy-ing up for fall too? It seems time to come indoors and ready the house to be occupied a lot more. And, of course, this means making things cozy and warm! One of the best things about cooler weather is bringing out all of my quilts. I have them everywhere! In the past I owned a fabric store, and I have taught quilting and sewing classes, so as you might imagine, I have a lot of fabric decor in my home. But I love it, since it’s my pop of color against my… Read More
Happy Monday! Today I am going to tell you the nitty-gritty truth about DIY! My blog post “plan” for today included a tutorial on how to make an absolutely adorable farmhouse sign for your home. I practiced the technique several times before I even started on the official project, which happened to be a sign to over a missing cabinet door in my kitchen. For some reason when I moved into my cutie-patootie house, that one and only cabinet door was gone. Nowhere to be found. It’s the one that covers the microwave outlet: My options were to find a… Read More
