I slightly switched up an awesome brownie recipe so that I could make them whole wheat and they are still DELICIOUS and super fudgy! Obviously, if you’re not in to the whole wheat thing, you could probably just make the original recipe. If you do that, I just suggest omitting the salt but use salted butter instead (because it’s healthier due to the preservatives in
If you are looking for some financial quick-fix or a shifty way to live on one income…this series is NOT for you. I fully expect people to pay ALL of their own bills ON TIME (and taxes & not be a leach off of the government or for welfare of any sort) and it requires a LOT of work. This is our story about what
Printable Recipe The girls from Our Best Bites have a great Garlic Bread Seasoning Recipe in their cookbook that I thought I’d share. I’ve adapted it to fill a pint jar so that I can use my Plastic Jar Lids (I recommend using a wide mouth jar so it’s easier to scoop out with a spoon).

If you don’t have vinyl windows and aren’t planning on replacing them anytime soon, you need to invest in some thermal drapes. (If you’re in a house you plan on staying in you do need to upgrade to vinyl windows. They’re not only energy efficient, but they also block out a lot of outside noise.)Thermal drapes can make a difference of up to 10 degree’s F
Printable Version This is a recipe that everyone should have on hand or know for emergency preparedness in case of dehydration. I personally don’t want to be helpless if there is a natural disaster and my children get sick. So here it is: A handful of Sugar A pinch of Salt 1 liter(about 34 ounces) of clean drinking water Mix all ingredients well until sugar and salt have somewhat
A healthy breakfast is one of the most important things we can do for our children (and ourselves). I played around with different waffle recipes for quite some time and after many, many adjustments I was able to create a recipe that I am happy with. My kids love them so much that even a couple years later they still request waffles nearly every day.
My husband and I have been trying to take steps to eating healthier and one of those was to cut hydrogenated oils from our diet. This means that we now use natural peanut butter.At first I was really annoyed because it has about an inch of oil on the top and it is nearly impossible to stir it up without getting oil everywhere.

Cleaning a microwave should NOT work up a sweat. It used to take me about 45 minutes to do a decent job on a very dirty microwave. Not any more. The best way I’ve found to accomplish this task, with minimal elbow grease, is to use white distilled vinegar. Place one part vinegar and two parts water in a bowl and microwave it on high for 5 minutes(you will need a microwave
