More wire shelving gets kicked to the curb

I'm on a "Less is More" shelving kick at the moment. I recently removed a bunch of additional shelving in my pantry. Here's the "after" picture: I've enjoyed having the breathing space so much that I decided to tackle some additional shelving in my master closet as well. Before we moved in, the closet had shelving up the wall at the entrance to the closet. Not only did it cover the light switch making it hard to turn the light on, it also protruded in such a way that we would scrape our shoulders on it frequently as we entered the narrow doorway to the closet. It was nice … [Read more...]

Chocolate Bar Toffee. Delicious easy to make treat for the Holiday season.

I served this Chocolate Bar Toffee to all the shoppers at the Kirkland's Grand Opening Event last week. It was a huge hit and I want to share the recipe with you guys now. (Don't forget to go enter the giveaway for a $100 gift card to Kirkland's!) This Toffee is so stinkin' easy to make. I don't generally enjoy cooking and baking, but I do enjoy delicious food, so when I do bake, it better be an easy recipe that is extra yummy. I have no patience for mediocre recipes. To make this Toffee, you only need 6 ingredients. It is that easy. The only tricky part about the entire recipe is you have … [Read more...]

Kirkland’s Grand Opening recap + a $100 gift card giveaway!

When I talk about my blog in relation to my life, I always say something is in my "blog life" versus my "real life". I don't do this intentionally, it's just that it isn't very often that these two worlds cross paths. Last Saturday I had the rare opportunity to have these two worlds come together and it was weird. Fun, and awesome, and weird. As I mentioned Friday, I was asked (along with Beth from Free Stylin') to help celebrate the Grand Opening of the Kirkland's store in the Austin area. It was so fun to get to be a part of an event! They had a preview party the night before and several … [Read more...]

Dump Cake {recipe}

Have you ever had Dump Cake? It's more like a cobbler than a cake, and is so rich and delicious. It is one of my favorite sweet desserts and is tasty served both warm and cold. Another reason this dessert is such a popular choice at our house is because it is so quick and easy to make. I can keep all the ingredients readily available to whip together for last-minute guests. There is no measuring, no mixing, and no separate bowl to clean up. To make Dump Cake you only need 5 ingredients: Crushed Pineapple, Cherry Pie Filling, Butter Cake mix, a stick of butter, and some chopped … [Read more...]
