Mission: Gluten Free Stuffing

Let’s talk about Stuffing. That wonderful seasoned crumbed bread that you have with a delicious turkey. Or if you are like me can eat on its own for a full carb treat. Oh so good! The problem though is some of us are intolerant or allergic to that perfect food and need other options. But Stuffing is just not that easy to replicate in a Gluten-Free way. Our household though has been on the hunt for a stove top version for a while. We have tried a couple of different ones over the last few years and some have been […]

Buying Iced Tea

Let’s talk about Iced Tea! This might sound a little strange but I am extremely picky when it comes to iced tea in its different forms. I like it in different ways, whether bought powdered, liquid, frozen concentrate or from a soda fountain, that to me doesn’t matter. It really comes down to my taste buds. So when it comes to powered iced tea I like Nestea Iced Tea. Plain and simple. But for some reason many of the stores in my area do not carry the original product anymore. Many are made with other sweeteners. Though these other options […]

Bath Time In a Small Tub

Lets talk about baths! I live in an apartment that has a bathtub but it’s a short tub. I like baths especially after a busy week.

So what do you do? Do you cover it with your foot? Do you fill the tub as high as you can and enjoy the deeper waters for a few seconds? Well there is a smarter way! You buy […]
