By Angie Many people could quickly think of how they screwed up, but it took more thought and effort to come up with successes. Surprised? After giving it some thought, I was glad to share with her a heartfelt list. It made me think. Even though we are full of goofs, it’s ok. We are still valuable and loved. Why? I’ll show ya…

Spring has sprung- well sort of! It’s hard to tell as I look out my window at the inevitable Midwestern spring snowfall.  Grrrr!  In my heart and on my calendar it is spring which means it is time to shake out the cobwebs and conquer the clutter that the dark days of winter hid from sight.  I’ve scoured the web for spring cleaning tips and tricks.

Did you abandon your New Year’s Diet yet? That’s the problem with diets: they take a lot of work, they aren’t any fun and they are hard to maintain. Apparently, my family needs to eat every, single day. I think I would like cooking if I only had to do it a couple times a week.

Time to take down all of the Christmas decorations, and my very dry Christmas tree (that is shedding more than my cat).  Honestly, this is my least favorite time of the year; right after Christmas, it tends to get really cold and snowy. However, one of my favorite things to make during this time is Chocolate Atole or Mexican Hot Chocolate.

It is that time of the year again. I have a Christmas Party or Dinner on almost every weekend. Do we go to my husband’s family Christmas party first? And then my parents? Which church do we go to celebrate Christmas? I have to buy presents…..

Man, am I thankful for fridges, slow-cooker, gas stoves, and the grocery stores–cooking in 1877 was the definition of “making food from scratch”. I wanted to share my top 7 recipes:

I wanted to sleep better, eat better, be more organized, etc.  So like a true scientist, I spent a lot of time researching these serious matters on Pinterest. Now, I made a huge list of things that could help me—“Life Hacks”.  Of course, I haven’t done most of them or some are just too much work; however, I have found that a few help me out a lot. So I wanted to share.
