Totally The Bomb

You know what was really annoying when I was a kid? Sandwiches. Sandwiches, every single day for lunch, unless it was one of those rare occasions that I managed to convince my parents to give me money for Friday Pizza Day. If you want your kids to grow up without a lingering resentment for anything that’s served between two slices of Wonder Bread, you’ve got to change it up once in a while. And if you’ve got Hello Kitty fanatics in your family, then you need to give this Hello Kitty Bento Lunch a shot!

Blueberry Pie Filling Recipe
Ann's Entitled Life

Make your own blueberry pie filling with this tasty, easy to make blueberry pie filling recipe. These simple step by step instructions will make your blueberry canning a breeze! Make blueberries pies, blueberry crumbles, bars and more using a delicious homemade blueberry pie filling that you made yourself.

Crockpot Baked Potatoes
Frugal In Florida

It's summertime here and MAN IS IT HOT OUTSIDE!
Like, sweltering hot!

So, rather than turn on the oven and make the kitchen hotter than it already was, I opted to make the baked potatoes in the crockpot.

Deep Roots at Home
My heart is breaking for the souls of our children. I am thinking there might be a negative reaction from readers on this topic. I need to speak the truth, for what is the use of a blog if not to influence our culture? Please do not confuse this with me thinking I have all the answers. I know I don’t, but there is trouble already in the making.

Frozen Raspberry Cheesecake
Lou Lou Girls

Every Sunday we have family dinner with all our kids that are available and we try out new recipes that we can share with you. It has been crazy, hot around here! That makes me crave anything cold and fresh! Because of this, I decided to make a frozen raspberry cheesecake, and boy am I glad that I did!

burlap container gardening
Master"pieces" of my life

we all know burlap has been trending for.ev.er now.  and i really like to marry it with natural elements so why not plants & flowers?

DIY Baby Diaper Wreath for Baby Showers
Sew Crafty Angel

It's seems like everybody I know is having a baby.
I've got 5 baby showers coming up.  Seriously!

I love to DIY so I started playing with the baby shower wreath idea.

Hang Onto Your Drawers | Thrift Store Decor
Petticoat Junktion

Today is Thrift Store Decor Day and the drawer was a thrifty find from my favorite thrift/junk store. I was using it to hold those small bottles of acrylic paint but it was better than that. Those bottles can sit in a box.

Blueberry Bread Pudding Recipe
You Brew My Tea

This Blueberry Bread Pudding Recipe is one that comes from my long standing love of bread pudding, and my desire to somehow make it appear to be a healthier dessert by adding fruit into it.  Okay, so admittedly this is just totally not healthy in the least, but I love the combination of adding blueberries that I already love to the favorite flavors of bread pudding.

Hoosier Homemade
Cat Condo: Made from a Wood Pallet

It’s time to pamper our kitties a bit! This Cat Condo that is made from a wood pallet has a spot for feeding, relaxing, playing and scratching.

Cooking in Stilettos

I absolutely love whipping up a quick bread for brunch – it’s easy to make and no need for me to face my irrational fear of all things yeast breads and the “OMG will it rise” conundrum.  One day I’ll face that baking bread from scratch fear – just not now.  I love that a quick bread comes together somewhat fast and for something that inspires me to turn on the oven in this summer heatwave, you know it has to be a recipe that is so worth me braving the heat (and the AC bills).

Whole Food : Real Families

There are times when you just don’t feel good about showing up empty handed. For example, when my neighbors invite us over to a barbeque. Or we’re invited for dinner with work friends for the first time. Maybe it is my southern upbringing, but when you know someone is going out of their way to be kind to you and your family, showing up with something in your hands to contribute to the table just feels right

Three Cheese Mini Macaroni Cups
Create With Joy

When you think of comfort food, what dishes come to mind? Chances are high that macaroni and cheese quickly rolled off of your tongue!
Did you know that macaroni and cheese has been on America’s top ten list of comfort food for decades and consistently ranks on the top ten list of favorite foods for children as well?

Monday Inspiration #15

Welcome to some


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It's been soooo hot here that we spent most of our time in the pool or under a shade tree.

So, let's get Inspired

This week I am sharing 

10-Minute Outdoor Candle Planter
Garden Therapy
I was strolling through my local garden center a few weeks back and saw the most brilliant use of terracotta – outdoor candle planters! I quickly gathered the materials and went straight home to make my own, and I LOVE how it turned out!

Distressed Harlequin Art Deco Side Table
The Interior Frugalista
That's right, Mr. Frugalista found this tiered Art Deco side table on a local online auction site, which has become a go-to source for furniture. It had already been chalk painted in Duck Egg Blue, distressed, and dark waxed and was selling for a very good price. Sold to the highest bidder!

Adult Coloring Review
Paulette's Papers

Premium Colored Pencils (SET OF 72) Soft Core Lead Ultra Smooth in 72 Individual Colors (No Duplicates) in a Beautiful Tin Case – Pre-Sharpened – Highest Quality – Perfect for Artists & Beginners

Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt
Say hello to my very first chocolate cheesecake for Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt! This chocolate peanut butter ball cheesecake is epic though. It has Nutter Butters crushed up into cookie balls and placed into the cheesecake before it’s baked. They are firm which I love. They don’t fall apart when you’re cutting the cheesecake or getting a fork full.

DIY Lavender “Essential Oil” Tincture
Hello Creative Family
I’m so excited to officially launch our Think Ahead Handmade Gifts series today!!! I hope that you all had a chance to read my post on Tuesday where I introduced the concept of the series and gave you all the opportunity to sign up for our Handmade Gift Givers Club. If not, hop on over to our Handmade Gifts Made Easy post and take a peek!

Easy DIY Burp Cloths
The Lost Apron
These burp cloths are quick and easy to make.  They are great for your baby, to give to a new mom, or as a simple baby shower gift.  They are made with a cloth diaper on one side and fun fabrics on the other side.  Make a set in a variety of fabrics.

Walking on Sunshine
And I've been doing really good at taking the photos, writing the ingredients
down as I go along so I can blog about the recipe with you too.
 I'm sure we've all seen the video floating around on Facebook of the Hasselback chicken stuffed
with cheese, tomatoes and basil.   I made a few changes from the recipe the video showed and
it came out delicious.  Really easy and my husband is already requesting
this recipe for dinner again

Flour On My Face
This Mango Peach Salsa recipe is an old recipe from back in 2011. It is so good that I have made it so many times I can’t even count.

Rose Bakes

A couple of weeks ago I went on the search for a recipe for a cake like this for my sister-in-laws birthday.  I wanted something new to bake for her, and since she loves cookie dough, this seemed like a perfect cake!

Baked Mac n’ Cheese with Hot Dogs & Tomatoes
You Brew My Tea

Baked Mac n’ Cheese has been a favorite of mine since childhood, but this particular recipe is the creation of my mother-in-law.  In fact, it is something that my Beau has been telling me about for years now.  So, this year for his birthday, I finally indulged and bought the ingredients to make this dish just for him.

Today, I thought I'd share Noah's birthday cake for this year!  He is a huge fan of peanut butter cups (more of an addict).  It's to the point where we can't keep them in the house because we'll both finish off a bag in a couple of days...like really.  So, when it came time to craft up the perfect cake for him, I knew exactly what to make!
