Mother's Day is going to be here before we know it! If you were planning on looking for a really kid-friendly baking recipe to make for the big day, here it is! These cookies are so much tastier than plain sugar cookies and the dough is as easy to work with as play dough! Maybe even easier, actually!http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/04/worlds-best-easiest-cookie-cut-recipe.html
This is it. I’m a changed girl forever. I will never make another type of cut out cookies again after the results of this little experiment that we did recently. Not only was the dough for these cookies really easy to mix up, it was also insanely easy to work with. It was almost …

Hooray for clever readers!! This idea was shared in the comments section of one of my posts and I just had to try it out for myself! http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/03/how-to-freeze-avocado.html
My friends, gather around. This is big. This is huge. I had no idea this was something that could even be remotely possible. I mean, it’s avocado. It’s one of those things that pretty much only gets eaten fresh and it’s just so darn delicious that way. Why would anyone want to mess with …

New blog post up this evening! Easter's one of my favorite holidays so I started on a few little Easter projects a bit early this year. Sharing this idea for making these cute moss nests for cheap in today's post! http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/02/6189.html
I was playing around with a few different Easter decor ideas recently when I was getting set up for the Easter home tour that I’m putting together and I came up with this really simple idea that I thought was actually pretty clever too, if I do say so myself! I ended up reusing quite …

Merry Christmas, everyone! I just finished getting the kitchen cleaned up from our Christmas dinner and now I'm starting to think about what I'm going to get done tomorrow. If you're anything like me, then maybe you're already starting to plan out what you can do to make Christmas next year even better and maybe a little more peaceful for you too. Tonight's new post might help with that! http://creeklinehouse.com/2015/12/what-to-stock-up-on-in-the-after-christmas-sales-for-a-much-easier-holiday-next-year-free-printable-list.html
Every year I say that I’m going to have my entire Christmas to-do list complete by the first of December and every year I get just a little bit closer to actually accomplishing that. The idea is that I’d love to have a really quiet, relaxing Christmas season where I can just focus on baking …

By now, you're probably pretty well-aware that I absolutely love our new bathroom, but today I'm sharing a little bit more about why I love it so much! Our new KraftMaid Cabinetry vanity is so much more than just a pretty face and I have a few tips to share with you if you're looking to get a whole bunch of storage and a whole lotta style out of your new vanity too! :) http://creeklinehouse.com/2015/12/design-perfect-bathroom-vanity-family.html
Using custom cabinetry in a bathroom to create your vanity or other storage solutions can really make a huge difference in how well your bathroom works for you and your family on a daily basis. Since we only have two bathrooms in this house, and the other one is super teeny tiny, I knew that …

A life without mashed potatoes and gravy every once in awhile is just SAD, but it can definitely be challenging to pull together a full family feast, including creamy mashed potatoes, during those hectic after-school hours when every one's got a million things to get done! Here's my easy little trick for getting that part of dinner taken care of well in advance of the dinner time rush!http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/04/crock_pot_mashed_potatoes.html
One thing that every single home cook needs to know how to make is a nice big batch of mashed potatoes. They’re the perfect accompaniment to so many classic main dishes like roast beef or chicken and they’re a comfort food staple at just about every big family holiday meal that I’ve ever seen! Luckily, …

New post up this evening! I put together a little Easter/Spring home tour just because it sounded like fun. smile emoticon http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/02/easter-home-tour-2016.html
So, I was going to get together with my Canadian Bloggers Home Tour group this week and do a whole big group home tour for Easter, but we just weren’t quite able to get our schedules all co-ordinated this time around. Quite a few of us were just a little too busy at this time …

New post up tonight! We've been working on a little mini kitchen update lately so I've been trying to also improve the organization in there while I'm at it. Tonight I'm sharing a bunch of my favorite extra clever kitchen organizers over on the blog! http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/01/clever-kitchen-organizing-supplies-that-will-whip-your-space-into-shape-in-no-time.html
I’ve become a really big fan of organizational products this last year or so. I used to always try to get by with just making my own organizers out of recycled materials that I found around the house, and sometimes they worked really well, but sometimes… not so well. Sometimes it can be such …

New post up tonight! I'm so excited to finally get to share all of the super dramatic "before and after's" from the new bathroom! Actually, I'm a little scared too. I can't believe I'm actually showing you some of these pictures! http://creeklinehouse.com/2016/01/before-and-after-grey-and-white-traditional-bathroom-makeover.html
Yay! It’s before and after bathroom day! I honestly thought this day might never come! We started this renovation in our master bathroom in October of 2014, so yeah, about 15 months ago, and now we’re finally ready-ish to look back on all the scary “before” pictures and pat ourselves on the back for just …

New blog post up today! If you're looking for a really easy dip recipe for your Holiday buffet table, you've got to try this one! It's just not Christmas around here without this 3 ingredient crab dip! http://creeklinehouse.com/2015/12/5980.html
Happy Christmas week, everyone! I just wanted to pop in here and share a quick little recipe that’s been one of our Christmas favorites for years! Truthfully, this crab dip recipe would be perfect for snacking on while you’re having drinks on the deck with friends in the Summer too, but we always seem …

The Property Brothers have a new show called At Home on The Ranch starting up next week. Have you seen the commercials yet? I'm a sucker for that wide-open country scenery, so I'll definitely be tuning in. Tonight I'm sharing some of my thoughts on how Holiday traditions change over time as families get bigger and lives get busier, in honor of the new show! http://creeklinehouse.com/2015/11/updating-holiday-traditions-and-adding-new-ones.html
