Need fast dinner ideas due to a meal planning fail? Maybe you burned your casserole in the oven, forgot to turn the crockpot on (or plug it in—been there), or forgot about dinner until five minutes before. If this has happened to you, you know what happens next—you end up ordering pizza, calling for takeout, or driving to the nearest fast food joint. Well, never fear! I’m sharing some insanely fast dinner ...

Who wants to even USE the kitchen when it's a total hot mess disaster zone?? You walk in your kitchen with every intention to cook. You see the mess. You walk right back out and call for pizza delivery. OH, THE GUILT. But what if it didn't have to be that way?? What if you learned how to declutter your kitchen and KEEP it clean? How much money would you SAVE eating ...

Do you struggle with lunchbox ideas for your kid’s school lunch? Just go on Pinterest, right? You’ll see all sorts of ideas for kids' lunches. They’re adorable…and also TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY impractical for most of us. Who has the time to meticulously cut out carrot flowers or sculpt kitty faces out of cheese?! Not I! So yea, if you pack a lunchbox from home, getting it together in the mornings is a ...

One of the biggest questions I get from newbie bloggers is, “How do I turn my blog into a full-time income?” Mostly they're wondering if I'll spill my successful blogging "secrets." When you’re starting out, it’s hard to see the path from hobby blogging to turning your blog into a thriving, growing business. In fact, the prospect can seem downright intimidating and tough. Well, I want you to let that line of ...

Laundry. It’s one of the toughest jobs around the house. It’s a job you put off, hoping it will go away (but it never does and somehow dirty clothes only seem to multiply). After a week or two of ignoring the laundry, you have no clean clothes and a smelly pile of dirty stuff you don’t want to deal with. Your only option is to bravely scale Mount St. Laundry. Well, no ...

It’s interesting how advertising for wireless services has changed. Years back, it seems like cell phone companies ran the show, because I suppose they figured they had a product you wanted and, hey, where else were you going to get it?

Who doesn’t love mouth-watering, ooey gooey, delicious desserts? Life is short, so enjoy dessert! These easy dessert recipes make it easy to give into temptation. One of the best parts of going out to eat is getting a “treat” to top off the meal, like a frosty, a shake or a fun fortune cookie at the end of your dinner.

I grew up in a small house. In fact, it was only about 1,000 square feet—super tiny by today’s standards. I’ve lived in 300 square foot apartments and 3,000 square foot houses and honestly, the smaller spaces can be really cozy and nice! (...especially when you decorate for the space.) If you’re living in an apartment right now, you might be thinking, “But I’m renting! My apartment doesn’t really feel like ...

I love, love, love food on the grill, how about you? But did you know you can use your grill or griddle to cook up easy make-ahead meals? Summer cooking doesn't have to be hard. If you've got time for 15 minutes on the grill now, that's 10+ make-ahead meals prepped and ready for later. Even if you don’t own an actual grill, you can cook most of these recipes with ...
