Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream I originally found this recipe at Frugally Sustainable and I fell in love with it the first time I used it. It wasn't just the great peppermint smell, but it was what it did to my feet. For the last several years my feet have taken quite a beating. They were rough, dry, cracking, and had some kind of fungus that would not go away no matter what I put on them! This cream is AmAzInG!! I now have my soft, non fungus feet back! Don't worry, I won't
I still have this set of Barbie reels and the View-Master I had as a kid. It was my all-time favorite set to look at!
Pizzucchini: Omg Omg Omg! One of the best healthy dinners I've had in a long time that I could eat all day! Thank goodness I made half the recipe. I used Jenni-o Breakfast Turkey Sausage and Francesco Rinaldi To be Healthy Garden Vegetable Pasta Sauce. Fantastic! Loved it! Will make again! It's a def. WIN!
this is my absolute favorite "plain" cake recipe. i get compliments every time i bake it. (seriously, i even used it to make a four tier wedding cake.) (the frosting is a great standard recipe as well, but i've paired this cake with chocolate frosting, strawberry cream cheese frosting . . .)
I need to remember this I've had a hard time coming up with songs to play at my wedding reception and these are playlists of love songs!!

It's only in the last few years that I've embraced color in my home. I used to be all about neutrals, and this is a gorgeous example.

description from baker: I just used box white cake mixes - 10 of them that I bought on sale. I had 6 6x6 cake pans and I mixed and baked 2 cake mixes at a time, divided them into 6 bowls and mixed in Wilton gel food coloring bought at JoAnns. It's not that hard to do. The hardest part was actually mixing all the icing up (it was a cream cheese frosting) - I had to do it in 4 batches because it just wouldn't all fit in my KitchenAid (powdered
make the olive garden's zuppa toscana soup at home. love soup season :) UPDATE: I've never had this soup @ Olive Garden so I didn't really have anything to compare to, but, it sounded good so I gave it a shot. I halved the recipe and used spinach because that is what I had. Baking the sausage is a must! It turned out really good (& spicy!!) and was perfect for a cold, rainy day.

It's officially back-to-school time! So you know what that means.... school supplies!! This is arguably my favorite time of the year (I have a serious obsession with school supplies, I know I'm a dork.) In honor of this time I've put together some essential to always have in your backpack, and they aren't all just supplies.
Everyone claims to have a delicious cinnamon roll, and I've tried my fair share. But my first attempt at these resulted in the best cinnamon rolls I've ever had. My husband's boss said that I should quit what I'm doing now (studying nutrition!) and just open up a cinnamon roll shop. Be aware, don't expect to be able to eat more than a few bites before you're through your breakfast calories, try making a 1/2 recipe with and only make 1/4 of the
I LOVE cinnamon rolls! They may be my favorite thing… ever! When I saw this recipe from, Picky Palate, I knew I HAD to make them! These. are. INCREDIBLE! Hands down one of my favorite cookies! If you are looking for a treat to completely “Wow” your guests, then this is the recipe! Whenever I …
Having a hard time finding cute cowgirl cakes. This is the best I've got.
This is absolutely the best method I've ever used for joining yarn when you don't want the bulk of weaving in all the ends, especially in a multi-colored project. I try to gauge the knot so that it is at the end of a row -- and I also give the knot a tug before I cut the ends to make sure it is as tight as possible. I've never had this come loose in any project I've ever made -- whether an afghan or clothing, etc.

My Jerm Jerm Jerm. How you have changed my heart and the way I feel. You have softened my exterior after I've had to be hard for so long to protect myself. You have been so kind, patient, and understanding. You're gentle in touch, both physically and mentally, my love. You have made me happy to be in a relationship again. I feel like I have been born again. Thank you for all that you do.

"Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl, who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing that I've ever had to do, which was just to... wait. For a really long time that's all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And, a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl I work with but I think, even then I knew that... I was waiting for my wife."

Okay...mine did not look that small when I was done. I used 2-3Tbs of the filling per taquito and mine were a little fatter than that :) Good thing is they were super easy to put together and super tasty!! All of the kids (and the husband) loved them. Even my 6 year old that suddenly thinks everything except chicken nuggets and hot dogs is gross. Next time I will make a double batch and freeze some. It was even faster to make because I used some of my shredded chicken I had previously froze. ...
I just had to share the love for my favorite Pinterest-found snack recipe. I am totally obsessed with this little balls of heaven!
The Best Banana Bread (ever.) J's review: 8.5 / 10 I don't know about 'ever', but this was definitely the moistest banana bread recipe I've made, and the flavour was really nice. My bananas weren't terribly ripe though, so I'm hoping that the next time I make it (with super ripe ones) it will hit 9 or 9.5 out of 10! I used sour cream instead of yogurt & sprinkled some cinnamon & brown sugar on top for a sweet crunch. This recipe is a keeper, for sure.
I've done almost all of these. My favorite is the fancy fast food dinner. I even let him pick out my fancy clothes. I didn't match, but he thought I was beautiful and that was all that mattered to me!!
