Double Duty Dinner Idea! Few minutes of prep and you get TWO delicious dinners #recipes #family via www.makinglemonadeblog.com

Making healthy dinners for my family from scratch is a priority, but trying to watch the kids while prepping dinner isn't a walk in the park-- unless a walk in the park is defined as 'having the kids compete for my attention under foot as I furiously chop and make supper while simultaneously attempting to keep them away from the flaming hot stove area.' I'm pretty sure that's not the definition of 'walk in the park'. Which is why I'm always looking for easy shortcuts to achieve this lofty … [Read more...]

I'll admit this weekend didn't start out as promising. I had a minor procedure on Friday (okay, let's just call it what it is: a colonoscopy) and then a tax appointment on Saturday.

How to make an EASY and INEXPENSIVE faux ceramic animal planter! What a fun gift idea! #DIY #modern #planter via www.makinglemonadeblog.com

March comes in like a lion... and apparently out like one, too, the way the weather's been lately.  ;-) I know this tutorial on how to make a faux ceramic animal planter isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I love fun, quirky touches in home decor and this one suited my style nicely. Plus, it only cost $7 to make so it falls solidly under the 'easy and inexpensive DIY project' camp that I so adore. I've seen these in high-end handmade studios for MUCH more, so if you like this look then … [Read more...]
