I am not one to have a ton of apps on my phone. In fact, I had almost none until a few days ago when I heard about a recycling app that I thought would be useful. After I downloaded it, I started looking around the App Store, and I found four others that I thought would really help me in my resolve for my family to live a healthier and greener lifestyle. I wanted to share them with you. :)
I ran across the coolest craft project ever on a blog I read called Creative Dominican. It shows how to take a plain plastic tote and turn it into a beautiful storage box. Well, she calls it a toy bin, it is actually nice enough to put in your living room and could be made even fancier or dressed down with denim or such to make a cute storage box for any room in your house.
To get the full low down on how to do this, here is the link to the post with the tutorial. I plan on making one very soon to hold the extra pillows and afghans in my family room. I already have the fabric!
Today I want to share a video from a site that I really like The Preparedness Pro. I saw this video and it occurred to me that canning hamburger was a brilliant idea. Brilliant because it will save room in my freezer, and cut out the chance that the meat will get freezer burned and ruined. It will save time, like when I am throwing together some dinner, like spaghetti or tacos, I will have precooked and deliciously marinated meat, ready to use. Not to mention that I will not lose a large portion of meat, and therefore money, if I lose power and my freezer thaws out.
I saw a video on You Tube about how to debone chicken wings after they were cooked. I was surprised at how easy looked, so I decided to try it. I cooked up some wings and the technique really worked! It was simple and straight forward. The video I saw was entitled how to eat a chicken wing, but it is actually how to debone it before eating, for easier dipping. Check it out below:
Today I would like to share one of my favorite cake recipes. I love almost any cake with pineapple, but if it has coconut, that makes it just about perfect. I hope you decide to try this recipe, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Just when you thought it was time to stop planting and start harvesting; as Grumpy Cat would say: NOPE! It's time to start planting for the fall harvest. The first thing to do is to decide what you want to plant. Below are some of your choices sorted by grow times and

I never knew it was so easy and quick to cook corn on the cob. I have always done it the old fashion way, peeling the shuck off, and spending 10 minutes trying to get the silk off. Boiling the water and then boiling the corn for 20 minutes.
Kind of a pain! That's why when I saw this video, I almost fell off my chair. This guy shucks and cooks an ear of corn in three minutes. Check it out for yourself:
Pretty incredible, eh? It just slides out of shuck, ready to eat. Who knew! Quick and easy homemade cooking.
Have a great week!

Today I want to share three quick tips with you. I use these all the time, and if you don't already, you will soon!
Tip 1 - Reusable Plastic Wrap Alternative
Instead of using plastic wrap and throwing it away (as well as being annoyed trying to deal with it) use disposable shower caps. They may say disposable, but they can be reused, and they are so much easier to deal with than plastic wrap. Just slide them over your bowl and you are good! They also make a great cover when you bring food to outdoor parties because they show what is in the bowl, but can be left on to keep the flies off until time to serve and then just slipped back on afterwards. I use mine all the time to cover bowls of leftovers.
And Six Flavored Lemonade Recipes
Today I want to share with you my lemonade recipe. In my opinion, it is the perfect lemonade recipe. I got the base of this recipe from a friend of my mother, many years ago, but the original recipe was too sour for my taste, so I changed it a bit and now it is ....well, I think it's perfect!
