"Here's Queen Nicolette and all of her royal subjects..." As I sat down and...

I have to be honest. As well as I know my husband, he's REALLY difficult to buy gifts for. He, on the other hand, is the best gift giver ever, so I wanted to do something else for him this year outside, of course, of the kids' million (sweet) handmade gifts and pictures (which are his favorite). I tried to listen REALLY well to things he brought...

german style soft pretzels (18)
by  |  posted under Breads, Recipes
Many years ago, I got my first taste of a soft pretzel. It was at a local fair, and I was in LOVE! Again, in high school, while on  field trip to a German deli, I had my second taste, and I decided that I just HAD to learn how to make them myself.

declutter your life (5)
by  |  posted under Cleaning, Inspiration, Organization
Declutter Your Life Over spring break, I took spring cleaning to an elevated tier of insanity. It was more of a spring cleansing. Hardly a toy or piece of clothing was left standing. There are several home organization and decluttering books I love because it’s more fun to read about cleaning and dejunking than to actually do it. And I had...
