Grilled Cheese Grows Up

My feelings about this sandwich were extreme.  When I first saw it, I thought “That sounds amazing!”. When I looked at it again a few days later I thought “Sounds kinda gross”.  I like all the ingredients, but would they taste good together?  My feelings about it went back & forth for a few weeks.    … Continue reading

Easiest Caramel Recipe EVER

I had never made caramel before.  I was unsure about how it would turn out, having only ONE ingredient!  I put the unopened can of sweetened condensed milk in the crockpot on low & left for the pirate festival. When I came back, this is what I had: I wasn’t sure if it turned out … Continue reading

Apple Ring Pancakes

When I saw these apple pancakes, I’d knew they’d be a hit with my family!  I didn’t get the ring look with most of mine, the ones I did get, I had to push the batter to the side with the handle end of my spatula. (I just checked the link & the recipe page … Continue reading

Coconut Ginger Chicken

Wow, this recipe is DEEEELICIOUS!!  I didn’t read the whole thing before making it, so I was a little discouraged that I had to cook a little before putting everything in the crockpot (I’m lazy like that).  BUT you cook it in the insert on the burner!  I didn’t do that but next time I … Continue reading

Updated Reviews

I’ll start with the Orange-Vinegar cleaner. In my original review, I stated that it didn’t smell very orangey, the vinegar was definitely the stronger smell.  I’ve made a couple more batches since then.  The smell is sweeter but not orangey.  Not like the commercial orange cleaners.  I expected this to smell like fresh oranges.  The … Continue reading

Refrigerator Oatmeal

I’ve been making this for about 3 weeks for Shabbat morning.  I wasn’t sure I’d like cold oatmeal so I put off trying this.  ALL the reviews I read were great, so I finally gave in & tried it.  Even my girls thought “refrigerator oatmeal” sounded kinda gross.  I used this recipe, which I found … Continue reading

Apple Cider Vinegar As Deodorant

I came across this article about using apple cider vinegar as an antiperspirant/deodorant.  I was impressed with the author’s experience & so I tried it myself. The first day, I was just home doing my usual things.  Mr. Fix-It stopped by in the late afternoon & asked if I’d go with him to a job.  … Continue reading

Kid Wash

Mr. Fix-It made this water toy that I found on Pinterest.  I watched him make it, it looked really easy!  I’m sure I could have made it myself.  It was up & ready to go in no time & cost about $10 to make. The kids love it!  They couldn’t wait to play after school … Continue reading

Two Reviews In One

First is the Mason jar lid, made straw friendly! I’ve been looking all over for Mason jar mugs. I found small ones at the co-op & some online somewhere.  Then I saw this!  I thought “That’s a quick & easy project for Mr. Fix-It”.  He made them so quickly that I didn’t even know he … Continue reading
