Declutter and Organize Your Decorations
Along with the fun of decorating for the holidays, there was always a bit of dread for having the tackle the unruly, messy and downright ugly corner of the storage room where the "Christmas stuff" resides. A sad disaster of mismatched boxes, dusty broken plastic totes and water damaged cardboard boxes.
I ran across this video over the weekend and I was amazed. I had no idea how easy it was to open a can without a can opener. You never know when this knowledge might come in handy, so I thought I would share it.
These are the ingredients in Jif Regular Peanut Butter:
My grandmother made the most luscious cake during the holidays. It was pretty unusual, I have never seen the recipe anywhere. The three layer cake was made with molasses and instead of frosting it had this "to die for" glaze that she put between layers and then poured on the top layer, so it ran over the sides and dribbled down the outside of the layers.
After my grandma passed away, we were cleaning out her home and I ran across her recipe box and while looking through her recipes, I ran across the one for this fabulous holiday cake.
These things are enough to stress anyone out, but what can you do? You can't exactly opt out of Christmas, especially if you have kids! How can you deal more effectively with the holidays like worry less and enjoy them more? Read on to find out!
I really love making meals in a crock pot. It's so convenient to just toss in the ingredients, turn it on and walk away. Did you ever wonder if there was a method for converting regular recipes into crock pot recipes? Well, it's not an exact science, but I have come up with some pretty safe guidelines for conversion from oven time to crock pot time.

Have you ever wondered if there was anything you could do with left over mashed potatoes? The answer is an old recipe from the depression era when no food was ever thrown away. I had these at my Grandma's house as a child for breakfast when she had left over mashed potatoes from the night before. She served them with brown gravy and biscuits (starch overload!!!!) and we loved them. Of course, I never met a potato I didn't like!
