My Friend Sharpened My Knives with this Crazy Trick!?!

How to Sharpen Knives

HOW TO SHARPEN KNIVES

Did you know how EASY it is to sharpen your kitchen knives? It’s so easy, that it’s actually quite embarrassing that I’ve been using dull kitchen knives for the past several months…or years ??!….and all the while thinking, “I have no sharp knives in this house!”

Well, my friend came over last week and was helping me prepare dinner. I said the usual, “Grab a knife – sorry, none of them are sharp,” when she casually said, “Let me see {and proceeded to open the cupboard and start looking at my bowls}….”

Make Your Own Powdered Laundry Detergent

 I LOVE THIS POWDERED LAUNDRY DETERGENT “RECIPE”!

WHEN WE WERE INTRODUCED TO THIS LAUNDRY SOAP RECIPE SEVERAL YEARS AGO BY A FRIEND, WE DECIDED TO TRY IT OUT. I’ll HAVE TO ADMIT, AT FIRST, I WAS A BIT SKEPTICAL IF IT WOULD REALLY DO THE JOB. I DEFINITELY WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! I GREW UP IN A LARGE FAMILY, SO FOR US THERE WAS ALWAYS A LOT OF LAUNDRY–AND LAUNDRY SOAP CAN BE EXPENSIVE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE LOADS AND LOADS OF IT TO DO. THIS LAUNDRY DETERGENT MAKES ABOUT 2 GALLONS, AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW LONG IT LASTED US. IT IS DEFINITELY A BUDGET FRIENDLY DETERGENT. 🙂 Continue Reading

Cool Weather Drinks

Cool weather is quickly approaching!!! It’s been an extremely hot and muggy summer season here where I live and we are so excited to think of  what is just around the corner. I love cozying on the couch with a crocheted afghan and a warm drink after my little ones are in bed for the night. And I love waking up to the crisp morning air and cozying on the couch with a crocheted afghan and warm drink. Haha! Coffee drinks are my all time favorite, but I am looking forward to trying some new teas and ciders as well.

Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup Recipe with Flaky Pie Crust Leaves

Our family loves a good chicken pot pie any time of the year, but it seems to taste even better after a chilly-windy-rainy fall day 🙂 This summer I tried the Chicken Pot Pie Soup at Zoup on their Customer Appreciation Day (yay for 99 cent soup), and knew we had to try making it this fall. Their soup had amazing flavor, but it was a little too thick for my liking (think “gloppy” :-P), so I made my soup with the thinner texture that I desired. I have to say . . . our chicken pot pie is definitely the best out there ;-). So when I developed this recipe, I started with the basics of the original pie filling recipe and went from there. It was a winner, and I’m thinking it might make it on to the dinner menu several times this fall 🙂 Continue Reading

Fall Printables FREE {set of 3}

It’s time to decorate for fall!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve already been drinking pumpkin spice coffee (did you know Sweet Leaf makes pumpkin spice liquid stevia?! I’ve been using it every morning for several weeks now…yum) and sticking some fall-ish flowers around my living room. Some people love to hang on to summer for all it’s worth, but we get TOO much summer where I live, so we’re ready to break out anything fall by the time September rolls around (even though we can still go swimming, ha!). 🙂
