    It might snow...

    I just checked on the weather and it looks as though we might get some snow flurries on Wednesday! I am in Georgia so snow is a rare occurrence for us. I wish it kids haven't ever seen snow before.

    Make your house smell good

    This was an idea that I found on the Pinterest site to make your whole house smell good. Supposedly it is the same smell that Williams and Sonoma stores have but I have never been in one so I don't know about that. You just take some lemon slices, four fresh rosemary sprigs, and a teaspoon of...

    Christmas Clean-up

    Well, it took twice as long as I thought it would but I got all of the Christmas stuff put away today. I must have made 20 trips to the attic, but it's done now. Has anyone else cleaned up from Christmas yet?

    Need a new coffee maker...again

    My coffee maker is on it's last legs. This one is less than a year old! I guess they just don't make anything to last anymore. What is your brand of coffee maker and has it lasted longer than a year?

    Best meals to freeze

    I am about to become an aunt to twins and I would like to make some meals to freeze in vacuum packages for my brother and sister-in-law. My brother is a CPA and the babies are coming right before tax season so I know that this is going to be a really stressful time for them. I already have some...

    Is anyone here making homemade gifts for Christmas this year? I have been collecting ideas on Pinterest all year and there are quite a few homemade gifts I plan to make for Christmas. A lot of them are homemade bath salts and scrubs, and some are recipes in a jar.

    Happy Columbus Day

    Happy Columbus Day! I am down South so no one really celebrates Columbus day down here unless you are a state or federal employee, or you work at a bank. :) I know that there are lots of parades and celebrations for Columbus day in other parts of the country though.

    Do you have a "signature" sauce?

    Do you have a "signature" sauce that is something you have created and that you are known for? My husband is in culinary school and all of the instructors are quick to tell the students that they aren't real "chefs" (even if they get certified by the American Culinary Federation) until they have...

    Christmas is here

    Christmas is here...well, at least at the department stores and Walmart. Didn't we used to get through Halloween before all of the Christmas decorations came out? Do you know how hard it is to explain to a four year old and a two year old that Christmas is not actually coming in a few days? :eek:
