Last week, a swarm of bees showed up in my backyard. My husband frantically said, ” Get the kids and dogs in! ” Then, we watched from the screen porch as the swarm began to settle 12 feet up in a tree in our yard. After 24 hours, I began to grow concerned with their [...]
This poor little blog. It’s always getting overshadowed by it’s other half (you know the one with the recipes?) But. Not. Anymore.
Because I have life going on, and some of y’all don’t always need a recipe in your face.
Sometimes, you might just want a peek into someone else’s world. Maybe to see that [...]
Hold on to all those old Ny-Quil cups. They are awesome for measuring out liquid extracts. AND, so much easier to wash than a bundle of measuring spoons.
My fridge was a craaaaazy mess recently.
Yeah, that bag there? See it? It’s full of strawberries. We picked them in baskets, but once purchased they got dumped into a plastic bag.
There’s quite the mixture of health food and junk food, too.
I spy some brown rice & yogurt alongside some Yoo-Hoo…
hmmm, there’s [...]
Ever since I started my food blog, The Village Cook- my husband will occasionally call me to the computer to critique a food photo. Not that I’m an editor at Tastespotting or Foodgawker- or that I even have a clue what makes a great picture. But, I’m pretty sure most people will agree that there [...]
It’s the New Year and I have officially resolved to be more active here. Starting with what’s in my fridge….
My fridge is jam-packed… and I have to say I am very fortunate and blessed for it. I need to get busy on my produce…I may need help from Joey though. Who’s Joey? Oh, you’ll [...]
This is my husbands 2nd favorite meal.
I made it for him when he’s had a hard day, when I have screwed up…and sometimes when it’s rainy.
He calls them “fun-ritoes”
It brings out the 12 year old boy in him.
It makes awesome leftovers [...]
I totally should do segments on before and after. Like: before I cleaned my bathroom and after.
Keepin’ it real…
Before laundry…after laundry…before make up after make up…before sweating my booty off by going on a walk, and after. Ooo, this list could get ugly.
Anyway, remember my kitchen tour?
Well, even though I am [...]
The other day, I realized it was time to do something that only females know how to do…sometimes it’s a simple task, other times it can be daunting yet the longer you wait; the more disastrous the outcome…
Do you toast your taco shells before filling? You should… they’re crisper and tastier that way! But… If you don’t do this, they will collapse and be un-stuffable. Is that even a word? Well, it is now.
Just stuff some foil in em, to keep them open while they toast.
So you can have your [...]
