FOUND: Refill For Lonely Swiffer Handle

When the Swiffer Duster came out I knew it was one of those things that I just had to have. I don’t know why my first thought was to get excited about adding to my cleaning supply inventory, it’s not like I get excited about dusting at all. Anyway, I did like this product, the […]

Grilled Pork Burgers

I know, I know it is officially fall now. But, with this nice weather we couldn’t resist the urge to fire up the grill and spend some time outside enjoying the weather. You man be asking, “why pork?” We originally made this recipe with  ground beef the first few times, and then we just so […]

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

We made this for a family gathering a couple weeks ago and it was a huge hit. I was asked to bring potato salad, but the problem is my husband and little sister hate the stuff. So in an effort to make something that everyone might like (very dangerous, I know) we tried this recipe […]

Hand Tying Quilts

There are several ways to quilt a project. I am fairly new to quilting, so I am still learning a lot about each method. I have done little projects using both hand and machine quilting, but this was the first time I have tied a quilt. Hand tying isn’t a first choice for many quilters, […]

Chicken Fajitas

We are finally getting a steady amount of bell peppers out of the garden and what better way to celebrate than to have fajitas.  I know it is very popular to just use a fajita dinner kit, but it was so easy to make using ingredients I already had on hand. The chicken actually gets […]
