Beef Stew Recipe

For the Love of Chicken
We eat a lot of chicken, at least once a week.    It is just so easy to throw a breast on the grill and pair it with a salad and dinner is done.  For the sake of variety I have been looking for new ways dress that bird up! When I find a recipe we enjoy I li...

Making My Week Productive
My week hasn't been very productive, and just to be honest frustrating.  We are in a holding pattern in so many areas right now.  Our bathroom remodel has stalled, it is taking twice as long as I had hoped when we started.  We have hired someone to do the t...

Five Ways to Prepare for Christmas in October
I know, I get it!  The stores put out Christmas stuff earlier and earlier.  It isn't even Halloween, much less Thanksgiving, I feel the same way, BUT...... if you are the manager of your house you know that Christmas doesn't just happen.  It takes planning,...
