Valentine's Wreath DIY

 I miss my bright Christmas decorations, so decided I needed a new wreath for my door.
This was cheap and not hard to make. Although I don't shy away from sewing projects, today's is all hot glued.
Also, my door looks so much more festive.

Dove Body Wash DIY

I love dove body wash. It's especially nice on my sensitive skin--I have hay fever and so my skin has a few complications. Need a recipe?

And how much better is it to make your own? It only takes 25 minutes or so, and you can save a buck!

Cherry Lime Cupcakes

My affinity for pudding helped me brainstorm these lovely cupcakes. The frosting is lime, there are cherries in the batter, and they are filled with cherry pudding.
Since I made them for a get together that began at 10 a.m., I used some short cuts to make things easier.

Golden Rolls

I absolutely love these rolls. I think I've made them every 2-3 weeks for the past 6 months!
My husband even asks for them. It took awhile before I told him about the secret healthy ingredient.

Why I Love Golden Rolls

  • Bread maker friendly
  • So soft and yummy you don't need butter
  • Gorgeous golden color
  • Hidden veggie
  • Fits the "make half your grains whole" health suggestion

Ranch Punched Potatoes

This flavorful dish has the delicious taste of Ranch Dressing without lots of grease. It has creamy potatoes below and crispier chunks above.
The best part? You probably have everything you need to make it right now.
This is a great last-minute dinner side dish idea.

Carrot Cake Pancakes

Today's recipe has the style of cake and the health awareness of carrots and whole wheat. Pancakes are probably my favorite quick bread, both to make and eat. These ones are tasty with butter and powdered sugar.
