I know weatherstripping isn't a blog topic that's going to get everyone excited.
However, when you have an old house and have tried just about every kind of weatherstripping sold in the winterization aisle, you feel like shouting from the rooftops when you have a workable solution.
This fall, for health reasons, I’ve cut way back on my sugar consumption.
While I’m disappointed not to be sipping any pumpkin pie latte or eating slices of apple pie at this time of year, I did come up with a breakfast recipe that still tastes of autumn but doesn’t include added sugar.
Sometimes, an easy dinner that tastes really good can make my whole day better.
That was the case recently when I made this dish, which I have cleverly titled Smoked Sausage and Brussels Sprouts.
As I wrote yesterday, Rob and I tried cooking Lebanese food for the first time this weekend and really enjoyed it.
I made this afghan, using Lion Brand Yarn's Tree of Life crochet pattern, this summer to give as a fall wedding gift.
It is huge - it would fit nicely on a double bed - and it turned into a gift I thought was perfect for a special bride and her new husband.
Do-it-yourself and cooking projects at our house have been limited this fall, mostly because I've been really busy and Rob has been dealing with a hand injury for the last three weeks.
(The photo shows Milou not caring how busy I am - could I please walk him, already?)
Hey everyone, I mentioned last week that we have available Taste of Home magazines for those who didn't get them at our event last week.
Thank you so much to everyone who attended our Taste of Home Cooking Show in Urbana on Tuesday night. I had a great time, and I hope you did, too.
I've been really busy writing about K-12 education in Champaign-Urbana lately, but I wanted to remind you that tonight, I'll also be hanging out at the Taste of Home Cooking School in Urbana.
