Whether I have spent hours prepping and cooking a meal or just the daily snacks and drinks for my family, the kitchen cleanup zone is one area in my kitchen that I visit everyday….many times each day. Even though I don’t enjoy the time I spend here, what I do like is the look and smell of a clean and organized kitchen.Read More »
One of the meals that I made for meal sharing this week was cauliflower chowder. I don’t always follow a recipe-just like my grandmother MomMom. I remember calling her for a recipe and she would say something like, “Put a spoonful of this and a pinch of that.” These directions were always followed by my question, “What size spoon? How much of a pinch?” I didn’t understand how she cooked like that, but over the years, I have learned to just season to taste.Read More »
Near the front door of our home, we have what is usually known here as a “coat closet.” However, since we live in south Louisiana (and always use the back door of our home anyways, never the front door), we do not need this closet for coats! However, our home does have a lack of storage areas, so I’ve changed the use of this closet to what our family calls the “Gift closet.” You may have seen pictures of the door of the closet here, when I discussed how I organize our gift wrap supplies, but I have never yet shown a picture of the inside of the closet.
My storage zone is the area that I keep the supplies I use when storing food. After taking time to grocery shop, harvest food from the garden, or cook a meal, I want as little food wasted as possible.Read More »
I don’t know about you, but I always find that vegetables taste better when roasted. Adding garlic and Parmesan doesn’t hurt either! Today, I’m bringing you a quick and easy recipe for brussel sprouts. Yes, brussel sprouts! So many people think they don’t like these little green mini-cabbages, but it’s usually because they’ve eaten them boiled or steamed, and no offense, I don’t like them cooked that way either. However, I absolutely love them cooked this way, as does my husband!Read More »
Last week I shared what I kept in the cooking zone of my kitchen. This week I will share what I call my serving zone. This is where I keep the things that I use to serve the meals and snacks that I prepare.Read More »
Jesus walks on water. That is amazing, but what is more amazing to me is that when Jesus tells Peter to come…he walks on water too. With his eyes focused on Jesus, Peter walks quite easily. Then what happens? Peter hears the wind and takes his eyes off Jesus and begins to sink.Read More »
Today I will share with you how I organize my cooking zone. The cooktop and oven are obviously the center of my cooking zone. The cabinets and drawers nearby are where I like to keep the items that make my cooking time go faster and easier.Read More »
I hosted a wedding reception at my home last week, so the weeks prior to this, I have been cleaning and organizing. I hope that sharing this with you will encourage you.Read More »
Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Are you more of a goal-setter? Do you pick a word? Do you avoid the entire “New Year” situation completely?
I was not one to make New Year’s resolutions, but I usually did focus on my goals for the year in the past. I rarely did anything “official” regarding it all; I simply set some time aside and spent it thinking, analyzing, and planning. I am a thinker, analyzer, and planner by nature, so this doesn’t just happen at the beginning of a new year for me. However, last year I tried something different and I absolutely loved it!
