I’m sure we’ve all been to a restaurant at one point in our lives and thought, “Dang, I would kill for this recipe!” Yet, in order to get it you either have to become a chef and get hired at the restaurant or develop amazing taste-testing skills, decipher all the ingredients, and spend days in the kitchen trying to create something edible… Now, I’m not trying to discourage anyone here; some people are amazing at creating copycat recipes! My mom is one of these people; I, however, am not. I think I’m getting a little bit better, but I remember I used to hate it when she’d ask me to test her gravy and tell her what else it needed. I was clueless! So, I just want to say thank you to all you amazing copycat-recipe-makers out there who make all of us with inferior taste buds’ dreams come true!
Thank heavens Norwex came into my life because their EnviroCloth works wonders on my mircofiber couch. It removes stains effortlessly with just a little bit of water. And, unlike my regular cleaning rag, when the water dries, the stain is ACTUALLY gone. Check it out!
Before I got married, I didn’t have much in the way of kitchen supplies. I think I had a couple bowls and a spoon to my name. And then, of course, I got a bunch of Tupperware and cookie sheets and rice cookers for my bridal showers and wedding. Yet, even after all that, I still feel like there are some products out there that I still need and that would love to have. That’s why I consulted the trusty ‘Or so she says…’ Facebook fans! Here are some great kitchen products that come highly recommended from the best ladies in the world!
Or so she says… readers, what is up?! It’s Mariah here again to give you and your kidlets some great Father’s Day gift ideas for the men in your lives. I think everyone loves getting something homemade from their kids; from macaroni necklaces to finger-paint drawings, there’s just something SO MUCH more special about homemade/handmade/DIY gifts. So today I’ve got 23 Easy Homemade Father’s Day Gift Ideas from all over the World Wide Web to help you make someone’s Father’s Day SO MUCH more special. 🙂
Hello everyone! It’s Mariah again. Hopefully you’re not too sick of hearing from me, because Mariel asked me to share some of my hubby’s favorite things for a Father’s Day gift guide. I’m pretty excited!
My husband Trevor and I have been married for almost 3 years now. He is DA BOMB! He is so perfect for me, it’s ridiculous. And, man, he is a great daddy! I can’t wait to spoil him this Father’s Day!
It is summertime my friends, and that means doing what we can to stay cool! Anything to keep the oven off, right??Salads, slow cooker meals, sandwiches, and no-bake recipes all seem to make more of an appearance when summer rolls around. Today I’ve got some awesome no-bake desserts that will not only keep your house cool, but also make you the star of the neighborhood potluck! Enjoy!
The weather is finally starting to warm up here in Utah. Hallelujah! Bring on the BBQs and outdoor parties! I hope I’m not the only one, but when I get asked to bring something to a party there are certain food items I’m comfortable making and others that I avoid like the plague. “Sure, I’ll bring a dessert and chips and a bowl of fruit, no problem! Oh, you want me to bring a pasta or potato salad? Actually, I’m going to be sick that day…” 😉 Side salads have really never been my thing, and neither have DRINKS. Yeah, I can pick up a few bottles of soda, but I’d rather have it be something special and the drink section in my recipe binder is slim to say the least! If your collection of drink recipes could use some bulking up as well, check out these 22 non-alcoholic party drinks and try one out next time you find yourself saying yes to, “Will you bring the drinks??”
While there’s not really anything wrong with having tuna melts for dinner every week, I do wish I had a stockpile of quick and easy dinner ideas on hand for those crazy days when you blink and it’s already time to ring the dinner bell. Wait, you have the same wish too?! Well, all I have to say is WISH GRANTED!
So… I’m probably going to start crying while writing this post. My baby boy is turning one at the end of the month! How did this happen?!? I swear it was just yesterday that the nurses placed him in my arms and I fell in love. Now he’s wobbling around the house, unraveling toilet paper rolls, putting rocks in his mouth, and dumping out my baskets of folded laundry! Yet, even with the steady increase in mischief-making, I’m still SO crazy about that kid. With his first birthday coming up I thought it’d be helpful to consult the ‘Or so she says’ Facebook followers for gift ideas!
Hello again! I can’t believe that Easter is coming up in just a couple weeks! It feels like it was just yesterday that we had a count down to the new year… Anyway, I was thinking the other day how some people are so stinkin’ FESTIVE when it comes to holidays, I mean, did you see what Mariel did for St. Patrick’s Day?? I myself am totally lacking in “festiveness” and I want to be better! Getting into the holidays breaks up the same old daily grind and gives you and your kids something to get excited about. So, with that said, I’m determined to make something crafty for Easter this year to display in my home. If you want to join me, and get the kids in on it too, here are 18 totally adorable Easter Crafts that I’ve gathered from all over the internet. Now go get festive!
A few weeks before I had my little boy, one of my good friends and I got together to have a little “freezer meal-making” party. With our husbands happily playing the Playstation in the basement, we got busy. We went to the grocery store to buy all of the ingredients we would need and then came home and started throwing stuff in freezer bags. In just a couple hours we had 8 different freezer meals each, all ready to go. It was so quick, easy, and fun! Plus, now I had 8 meals that I could make for my family that literally took no more effort than dumping the contents of a Ziploc bag in a crock pot and turning a knob!
Happy New Year everyone! I hope all your resolutions are going well so far! Something that I want to be better at this year is having weekly family nights or family home evenings.
For those of you who don’t know what family home evening is, it’s basically a night where your family spends time with each other and they usually include a little lesson, an activity, and (if you’re lucky) a treat.
