I love cooking tips. The new term for it is “kitchen hacks” but it is the same thing, only without the picture of an aproned grandma with a meat cleaver. I got many of these tips from my mom, but some I have just picked up along the way, while cooking.
Are you looking for a lovely cookie to make for your Valentine this year? If you are sick of the pink icing, sprinkles and sugar crystals and are looking for something a bit more grown up and beautiful, this is the cookie for you. This jam filled beauty never fails to impress but are actually very easy to make. I prefer mine plain, but you can also dust them with powdered sugar for a more delicate look.
I belong to a Facebook group called The Minimalist Life. It is about getting rid of the excess stuff in your life and paring it down to what is really important. They have posts about all kinds of decluttering and organization. It really has some great ideas.
Last week I saw a really awesome idea on how to turn a bookcase into a child's closet. This idea would be perfect for someone who had a very small house or apartment and had a new baby with no place to put their clothing and other baby items. The photo was from a group member named Sprite Dunbar. I got her permission to use the photo and to discuss her idea here on my blog.
