Chalkboard Painting Furniture. Did this to my office filing cabinet. Chalk paint only on the drawer fronts, the rest in a "chalky finish" rouge color pop. So. Freakin. Cool.

Didn't make 'em, but bought 'em on the cheap online...I forget from where. Love. #MasonJars

How To: White-Wash the Fireplace. my friend @Carla Bryant did this for me. But it looks ah-MAAAY-zing. Tip! Don't whitewash the mortar in between the bricks for a more authentic look. See my "Dining Room" board for my finished project.

    Thanks for the shout-out Susan! Loved working on your fireplace!

#Vibram Five Finger Bikila minimalist #running #shoes. Got a pair through a "daily deals" website...can't recall which site now. Will never run in them after the recent backlash, but I DO like to wear them around the house, to the grocery store, etc. Comfy.

I made it. Parting thoughts: -I awoke craving FRUIT for breakfast. -It's changed the way I look at food. I'm usually a serial pantry grazer. I'd mindlessly finish my kids' meals. I'm now more conscious about what I'm putting in my mouth and why. -I feel great. More alert. More alive. -I'm down 5 pounds from where I started. I'm sure it's mostly water weight. That's fine. Weight loss was not my objective. -I'd recommend this to those who'd like a "fresh start" with eating.

Homemade #Limoncello. Doubled the recipe and had eight bottles to show for it. Swapped out half the sugar for Splenda to cut calories. I have achieved greatness.

How To Make Limoncello

Purchased from Etsy in May '14 and strategically placed in the boys' bath, powder room, and basement bath. Compliance is erratic, but I like the sentiment.

Quinoa 'Fried Rice' - Made on 4.21.18. I actually prefer the consistency of quinoa to rice. A pretty good hack...but next time I need to use PLAIN quinoia instead of veg flavored. Must try again.

Easter Glazed Ham via @Reena Dasani Drummond | The Pioneer Woman. Made on Easter 2014. The glaze, including guest star Dr. Pepper, makes this an impressive, easy go-to for any holiday. Thanks, P-Dub!

Twice Baked Potato Casserole With Bacon via AllRecipes...five stars per user reviews. I concur. A great alternative to baking and refilling individual skins. Fed a dozen by tripling the recipe on Easter 2014.

Glazed Carrots with Pistachios - Made on Easter 2014. Yum. Pretty presentation. A great springtime side.

Made for the Vestie Besties 4.2.14. Yum. Can of frozen diet limeade, 12 oz. tequilla, 24 oz. diet Sprite, one Corona Light. Best. Skinny. Margarita. Ever.

Mini Apple Cinnamon Pie Pockets. Made these for my book club last night. Well, to be honest, @Lauren Coates made them. She made some apple, some peach, and some blueberry and topped them with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. So yummy and the perfect portions for a ladies' gathering. Will make them again for sure!

Ham & Cheese Gnocchi. Cooks in one skillet in 15 mins or less. Made on 2.6.14. So good! @Mindy Sinzheimer ? Fed this to your kid who hates pasta. He ate 2/3 of it. #victory

Slow-Cooked Pork Chops - Made 2.4.14. WINNER! The first time - ever - my chops have not come out like bricks. Quoth The Small One: "Mom? They're almost *too* tender. I can't handle this!"

"Did" this for The Small One's birthday. And I do use the term "did" loosely. I am so blogging about this.

Skinny Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Made when Chicago turned Chiberia on 1.6.14. Just what the doc ordered. Will simmer a little longer next time for extra thickness, but overall, a great recipe.

Easy Garlic Cheddar Biscuits | Skinnytaste - 1.6.14: Twin A made these to go with Skinnytaste's skinny chicken pot pie soup. Yummy. And a twelve year-old can make them. 'Nuf said.

Just bought two of these: One in these colors and another in a rainbow palette. So fun ~ via Etsy

Angel Chicken in slow cooker. Even The Smal One, who professes a hatred for shrooms, gobbled this up. #winner

Pizza On The Grill via - We made one Margherita and one sausage on 9.10.13. Both came out great! A new summer tradition is born!

Egg drop soup. Made 2.5.13 and served with honey cashew chicken & rice. Cherubs LOVED it! Super easy and low carb.
