Welcome To Think Tank Thursday 10/22


I hope you are having a great week! The Fall weather arrived here this week and with it, the dark, dreary days in Ohio.  I’m trying to stay chipper by looking back at all my fun Fall posts, so I’ve updated my Fall tab at the top of the page.  You can check out the tab by clicking HERE or the FALL tab itself.  There are a bunch of great recipes, some fall decor, and this post on 10 Last Minute {Read More}

Ranch Pesto Pasta Bake

Ranch Pesto Pasta Bake

My family is growing in size…not number, size!  I have three teenage boys and a husband that are all at least 6 feet tall and all are over 200 pounds.  To feed them is no small feat, and to do it without selling a kidney, well, you know…not easy either. In an attempt to stick to my budget and feed the family, I’ve cut meat out of several meals every week.  Surprisingly, we enjoyed some really delicious, simple meat-free meals {Read More}

Sawhorse Desk

I’m a start to finish kinda gal.  I like to start a project and then work on it until it is finished. However, that doesn’t always happen and this project was one of those times.  Last Fall, one of my boys bought his own computer and was in need of a desk for it.  So I got the idea to create a sawhorse desk. My Better Half threw together these “sawhorses” using some old bed slats that we had in {Read More}

Help For Fitted Sheets That Don’t Fit

Fitted Sheet Fix

Bedtime is my favorite. With the super crazy days, there is nothing like climbing into bed with My Better Half for a good night’s sleep. But most nights, just before we climb into bed there is a whole lot of tugging, pulling, and sheet adjustment going on. We have a pretty thick mattress and none of our sheets seem to fit it properly. Sometime during the night, the sheet starts to pull loose and will often pop right off the {Read More}

The Best Pumpkin Bread

The Best Pumpkin Bread 1

‘Tis the season for all those yummy fall recipes…YAY!  Last year, I shared with you my delicious Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread which has become a big hit in my house, but this year I’ve got a new recipe for a pumpkin bread that is so moist and delicious that I am deeming it The Best Pumpkin Bread. I am a lover of sour cream and add it to just about everything Mexican that I eat, but now I’m finding it {Read More}

Welcome To Think Tank Thursday 10/8


Thanks for joining us this week!  My Better Half left me this note last Friday morning… …because, my sister and I went away for the weekend.  It was so nice to get away from the responsibilities and chaos of life for a couple days and just enjoy some rest and relaxation. If you’re new here, my Sister and I work together at the Think Tank, so anything you link up here will show up over at Joyful Homemaking as well. Once again, we {Read More}

Making Lunches Easier

Frozen Peanut Butter and Jelly

Since I homeschool, I’ve never really had to pack daily lunches.  My kiddos make mac and cheese, ramen noodles, quesadillas, or  a sandwich for themselves each day at lunch time.  But I know many of you are packing a lunch each day for your kids that head off to school or day care. I was chatting with a friend the other day and she was telling me about the craziness of her evenings and one of the things that made it {Read More}
