Make it Hot or Not!
This is a creation of my own making. I love corn salad, but I wanted to make it with a little more pep......some spice, but not too hot. I experimented a bit and I came up with this recipe. I made it last labor day, for a friend's get together and it was a hit. Even my husband likes it, and he is not a fan of spicy stuff. If you want it hotter, add more jalapenos or leave the seeds in. If you are really a heat freak, you can add a teaspoon of Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Personally, I like the recipe as is, but to each his own. You can

Only Three Simple Ingredients, All Available at the Grocery Store
I always thought that making cheese was a lengthy, difficult, messy process. I was always hesitant to try it. At least I was until I found this recipe. It does not call for any funky ingredients that you would only have if you lived on a farm. It does not take a lot of time.
It isn't even messy; and the cheese that you get from it is awesome.
That You Can Make Yourself!
I ran across this project on a blog that I read greylustergirl.com and I thought it was so cute! I just had to contact Lisa, the owner of the blog, to ask if I could share it with you all. Luckily she said yes, so make sure you go check it out.
Jade's Jar Mix Recipe Collection
I really love dry mixes that you make and store in a jar until you need them. I have a ton of them in my pantry, taco seasoning, cream soup base, ranch salad dressing, chili seasonings, just to name a few. I also love to give them as presents for the holidays or for house warming gifts. They are just so darned convenient! Who would not want to have a few in their cupboard or receive one as a gift. Just don't forget to label them!
A Small Amount of Time Each Day Is All It Takes!
How long have you been trying to motivate yourself to organize your home, your apartment, your garage? Does your heart sink every time you look around and see piled up shelves, drawers that won't close and overflowing closets? Is every surface within sight covered with papers, books, boxes and clutter?
There is Nothing to be Afraid of, It's Easy!
I have been coloring my hair for years. For many of those years I used the boxed color that you buy at the drug store. It was easy, all the stuff you needed to get the job done was in the box. Over the years, I began to notice the price rising. I mean rising quickly!
All of the sudden, (or so it seemed) my boxed hair color was $15. I started feeling like I was getting ripped off every time I had to buy hair color.
One day I was talking to a friend of mine, who used to be a hairdresser, and I mentioned how expensive my hair color had become. She told me that I should use professional color because it was higher quality and because it was much cheaper that the boxed stuff they sell in drug stores. I was concerned with using a professional product, since I had no training, but she told me it was easy and no technical knowledge was required. I tried it out and found the color was superior and it was so easy to do......and it was far less expensive!

Yesterday I planted my "bag potatoes." Yes, potatoes can be grown in bags! In fact it is so much easier to grow potatoes in bags than in the ground. Instead of having to dig them up at the end of the season and risk damaging them with the shovel, you simply dump the bag and pick up the potatoes. It is so easy! Lets go through this method step by step.
This Garden Will Supply Salad Greens For Us
The Whole Summer and Fall - All By Itself
I was strolling through my local nursery when I saw some stacking, four section, three tier stacking pots. My mind immediately started thinking of all the great things I could plant in these pots and the space it would save in my raised garden beds. I could see strawberries, herbs, and salad greens growing from the different sections of the tiers. I was so excited!
