Decorating Ideas for Small White Pumpkins
Petticoat Junktion

Small white pumpkins are one of my favorite pumpkin types. There have been a lot of new varieties show up lately at the local vegetable/flower market. The bumpy ones called peanut pumpkins are kind of cool. I bought this bunch of white pumpkins at a local pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago.





The mangos have been plentiful this year and I have been enjoying them every chance I get. I made this Sweet Chili Mango Sauce to go with some grilled chicken I was making for dinner one night.


Easy Pumpkin Cheeseball
Crafts a la Mode

The Fall season for food has started.

I saw a this darling pumpkin cheeseball over at Family Fresh Meals and decided I really had to make this for a family gathering (it was a BIG HIT - how did you do that?). This is a variation on a cheeseball that I have been making for years with softened cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. The orange color? It comes from crushed up Doritos.



This peanut butter chocolate banana bread is made with Reese’s peanut butter chocolate spread and a whole lotta deliciousness. It’s a pound cake worthy of the name.



I really thought that this cold winter would be really hard on me (I recently moved from Las Vegas to Northern Utah). It kind of has, but the cold is VERY inspirational! I have needed to take extra measures to stay warm, and arm warmers were a cozy and cute way. I really like how these turned out, and they are pretty simple to make, too.




This fall decorating couldn’t be easier. You’re pretty much just going to paint everything white. That’s right, it’s like skill level zero. You can do this!

Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bread Pudding
Eat Move Make

Every year my family has a holiday party the week before Christmas, and today’s the big day. We all bring a ridiculous amount of food and just enjoy the day eating, chatting and laughing like crazy.

I’m bringing this delicious slow cooker apple cinnamon raisin bread pudding! It’s full of holiday flavors and is a showpiece dessert that everyone loves.



How to Clean Vintage Treasures
Cottage in the Oaks

Some of the most wonderful found treasures can come with a lot of wear, tear, dirt, and grime with them. We love to find fun items at flea markets and shops; but once we get them home we need to know how to clean them up. I shared in the past how we cleaned up the wonderful wooden, vintage, folding chairs that we were gifted. You can find that info here. I also shared how to clean vintage bottles here.



Safe Gardening with Dogs and Cats: 12 Common Garden Plants Poisonous to Pets
Garden Therapy

Do you like to garden with pets? Dogs and cats can be great garden company and it’s important to keep them safe. I have had my fair share of four-legged garden helpers and I will say that some needed a lot of training to safely roam the garden, while others were able to work it out on their own. When I adopted a young Labrador Retriever, I quickly needed to learn which garden plants were safe for her to eat and which were not because she ate everything. This was very concerning until I learned about twelve common garden plants poisonous to pets.



Repurposed Crib Turned Kids Bench
Grillo Designs

OK, so I don’t have to be a mind reader to know what’s going through your head right now. You’re thinking… ‘oh no, not another upcycled crib idea?!’ Am I right? Hey I’m sorry to be the cause of Pinterest induced deja-vu in this instance but believe you me, its for very good reason. Stay with me now… -




15 Minute Bacon Egg & Cheese Breakfast Pizzas (Freezer Friendly!)
The Busy Budgeter

When it comes to eating well and eating homemade, one place where I really seem to drop the ball is with breakfast.  My pantry always seems to be packed full of sugary cereals that have the nerve to call themselves breakfast — because it’s easy.  I’m also definitely guilty of hitting up the drive thru one or two too many times, especially when I’m really in a pinch for time.




EASY LASAGNA SOUP
Food Fun Family

This week, I was challenged to create another recipe using RAGU Homestyle sauces, and I immediately thought about trying a lasagna soup. I have seen several recipes for lasagna soup in the past that looked delicious….but a little complicated. I rarely make lasagna because it’s so time consuming – all of the layering (actually, dealing with wet, floppy, sticky cooked noodles is enough to deter me!).
