I sort of made this up on accident. I was trying to make one thing and I thought it failed.. horribly. BUT! It turned out that what I actually made was really yummy. It didn’t look super pretty until I put whipped cream on top… then who cares what it looks like, right? As long as there is a cream topping, everything is going to be okay. No, but seriously,...

When I tell people that my husband and I got married so young, we get a lot of surprised looks, and a lot of questions. The first question that a lot of people ask is how we could afford to get married that young. When we tell them that our whole wedding cost under $4000 (ring and dress included), those looks go from surprise to shock. Here is how we did it: Use your...

I teach the young women group in my church, and this month our lessons are focusing on the plan of salvation, which is Heavenly Father’s master plan for us. Because we are talking about it all month, I wanted a visual for the girls to look at, one that would help them remember how it all goes. I couldn’t find one I really liked, so I created this one, and I...

My husband’s grandma is a wonderful cook. She loves to cook for people, and she is pretty darn good at it. She is always coming up with some kind of fabulous food. I have learned a lot from watching her at work. This is one of my favorite recipes of hers. It is easy and delicious and can be made with as little as three¬†ingredients. Those ingredients are: elbow macaroni milk cheese When...

I believe that when kids do things that are hard for them, they end up feeling proud of themselves. I have seen so many parents do things for their kids that, with a little encouragement, the kids could have done themselves. We tell our kids they can do anything they want to do and be anything they want to be. But, as soon as it looks like they are struggling, we step...

This recipe seriously took like 10 minutes to make. And, it’s magic. You’ll see why later. And, I had all the ingredients on hand (and I bet you do to.) Because it uses no eggs or butter and very little sugar, it was a popular dessert during World War II. I found it in Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook. That cook book is my number one go-to cookbook....

I decided to make these because they look super yummy and because they remind me of Valentine’s Day, which is coming up pretty quick! I got the recipe from¬†Sprinkle Bakes. If you haven’t made something like this before, I suggest watching the video she has up about it. It really helped me. I did do a few things differently though. Number one being that I used...

I am seriously freaking out right now. Up until two nights ago, I had only seen any sign of mice in the kitchen. Only one time had I actually SEEN a live mouse. Most of the time, I just see evidence of mice or the occasional unfortunate dead one that got caught in a trap. One time, I did see one staring at me from underneath one of my stove burners (seems like a dumb place...

When my husband and I decided to live in a two bedroom house with a family of four, it meant that our kids would have to share a room. This is a right of passage for anyone with a sibling, it seems like. At one point or another most kids have shared a room. Our kids are no different. One thing that sets them apart from many others that share a room is that they are only...

I had always heard that a bedtime routine was an important part of a kids day, but I never really believed anyone. My son went to bed really well and we never had any sort of a routine. I had heard other people saying how they have these long elaborate routines which involve bouncing on medicine balls and singing for hours on end and I didn’t want any of that. When...
