Easy composting -- just invest $6 in a tub and make holesin the lid and bottom and you're good to go. Use food scraps (not rotting meat ;0) eggshells, fruits, veggies, etc.. and use a shovel to turn it over every week or two. For the first deposit remember to soak it in water. by lela

SO GOOD AND EASY: in a 8x8 Pyrex (I use clear) layer: 1lb raw hamburger meat, chopped onion, 1 can cream of chicken soup, shredded Colby Jack cheese, and tater tots.  Use the cooking directions on the tater tot bag (usually a bit longer I like it a little crunchy!) I use the clear Pyrex so that I can peek at the bottom just to be sure the meat is cooked!  ENJOY by lucinda

Poop trays make for easy cleanup. This is the way my husband built our hen coop. It is the greatest. I just pull them out and sweep the chicken poop into a big tub and it is ready to be added to composting. Absolutely love it! Clean-up is a breeze. by jeri

DIY Lotion Fabric Softener. I want to be clear that I ABSOLUTELY AM NOT suggesting you BUY lotion to make this. HOWEVER, if you're like me and you have some lotion collecting dust, maybe you should give this a try. See, I liked the smell, I just didn't like it as lotion. I used a 1:1:2 ratio of lotion, white vinegar & WARM water. I just put it straight in a jar with a lid & gave it a good shake. It will seperate so shake before use. As for by Mummigurl

Walking Taco - This is not as much a recipe as it is a 'how to'. Good camping food. To save money: Get some of the white deli containers (like Chinese take-out boxes - with the metal handles?) and buy the econo bag of chips (Fritos, Doritos, whatever) and make the walking taco in the disposable deli container. Make plenty of the taco meat mix and bring plenty of prepared toppings. This is a very popular camp food that is easy to fix, easy to eat, delicious, and easy to clean up after. by CraftyCatLady

Lazy 4-Layer Pizza Dip. Meh. Was super easy but wasn't that great. I mean it's melted cheese and meat so it's not bad. Just could have used a little something more. There are better pizza dips out there, but this one is by far the easiest to prep and make if you are in a rush. Still decent, just not amazing. by karryanne

"All these promises that we make and we break...why is it that you think people get married? Because we need a witness to our lives. ... in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything...the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things...all of it, all the time, every day. You're saying... your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness." by Regina Schneider

House Your Saucepan Lids (Image 10 of 28)
Possibly the bane of most cooks' lives, pan lids clutter up the bottom of pull out drawers, make cupboards chaotic and the appropriate one always manages to hide itself when you need it. So why not invest in a pan lid housing for within your drawer or cupboard? Most kitchen designers will fit them for you - or you can buy them separately from kitchen shops. These are from Ikea. by msochic

Worm Composting - A three-foot section of PVC pipe is installed in the garden. Food scraps are put into the tube, and then worms crawl into the tube via drilled holes, eat the food, and then spread their castings in a 4' diameter as they go. by robindu

Lion House Apple Crisp. This is our absolute favorite recipe. It's easy and amazingly delicious. Even my dad, who makes a pretty good crisp himself, raves over this one. :) (Is that...chocolate syrup in the photo?? I hope not.) Just use real whipped cream or your favorite vanilla ice cream to top it and you'll be good to go. It's also wonderful without either one. by diane.smith

How to Build a Worm Tower - This visually illustrates the concept of building a worm farm in your raised garden bed, where you want your compost worms to go to work for you, feeding your vegetables with nutrients. This system allows you to recycle food scraps back into your soil. PVC is NOT safe to use as it leaches chemicals which can end up in your food - I recommend clay pipes or food grade plastic buckets with recycle numbers 1, 2, 4 or 5 (not 3, 6 or 7). | The Micro Gardener by larakie
