Ripen Hard Avocados with Flour. Buying avocados can be tough, especially out of season. If you buy a rock-hard avocado and can’t wait a week to make your favorite guacamole recipe, speed up the ripening process by placing it in a deep bowl. Cover the avocado completely with white flour, and then let it sit for a day. The avocado will be ripe and ready to eat! by clare

Cheese reindeer! That is a very clever idea! Simple enough to make, you could have all the parts in separate bowls and let the kids make it for themselves. This would also be a fun healthy snack to take to one of the many Christmas party functions  you will no doubt be invited to over the silly season. Have fun- D.I.Y Mum. by Sue Pendergast-De Freitas

Wait... is this real life? This unique bed is made from 120 medium sized sofa balls covered in elastic fabric. The crazy thing about this bed is that you can change its form. It doesn’t have to be horizontal bed all the time. You can pull up the sofa balls to make a small seating arrangement or make new shapes for your relaxation needs. Plus they look kinda cute. by tammy

Snooze Tincture is a combination of herbs that are both good for you and calming. These herbs have no negative effect on my children, no addicting properties, and no side effects.

Make blocks of ice at home in your freezer a day or two ahead of time. It is so easy, take some tupperware containers and pour some water in the bad boys, pop in the freezer, wait and your done. The blocks of ice will last you two days, maybe three. Loose ice is good in addition to the blocks but you won’t have to worry about a warm cooler. The block will keep for a few days and also keep any water that may have melted and is in the cooler super cold. by roseann

Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken with Broccoli - This lemon chicken is seriously the best chicken dish you will ever make. I struggle to find healthy recipes that I actually crave. This chicken is so tangy and tender. I have made it 3 times in the last 2 weeks! It is easy to clean up, since you shake the chicken with the seasonings in a ziplock bag. You add your favorite veggie on top of the chicken during the last hour of cooking. by ausongbird
