Homemade Glass Cleaner

I ran out of Windex cleaner for the mirrors in the bathroom.  I could run out quickly and get some but it’s cold and I hate to run an errand for only one or two items.  So, I’m making a glass cleaner to clean the mirrors.  Glass cleaner is not that expensive to purchase, but I found out that it’s not that expensive to make, either.  Plus, when you’re in a pinch, you can easily make it at home with {Read More}

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Yesterday, I opened a can of chicken noodle soup and had some with a slice of homemade cornbread. It was so good! So, of course, you know what I was thinking.  I can make this myself.  Who needs canned soup when you can make it homemade.  I think what really made it so good was the homemade cornbread.  In our house, you can’t have soup, unless you have homemade cornbread.  It goes

How To Make Homemade Gel Air Fresheners

During the summer, I made air freshener with baking soda, essential oil and sidewalk chalk (to color baking soda). So, I thought it was time to try and make the gel air fresheners.  I’m on a mission to make everything homemade.  This was a fairly easy DIY to make. You only need a couple of ingredients and it’s quite inexpensive. I used lemon essential oil to scent the gel air freshener.  It has a wonderful

Old-Fashioned Homemade Peach Cobbler

I decided to try my hand at making homemade peach cobbler with homemade pie crust.  Of course, we know that the crust makes the cobbler.  If you don’t have awesome crust, then it’s downhill for the rest of this recipe.  For my first attempt, I must say that this came out so delicious.  The crust is so crusty and tasty.  Okay,

How to Make Homemade Air Fresheners

I am always trying to keep the house smelling nice and it is definitely not an easy task.  The one place that I would like an ongoing nice scent is the closet, specifically my bedroom closet.  It is a walk-in closet that seems to lose the scent that I place inside of it quite quickly.  Replacing air fresheners on a regular basis can get quite expensive.  So,

How To Make Homemade Dishwasher Detergent Cubes

I definitely enjoyed trying this! How neat! I must say that this is one of my How-To favorites.  Why? Well, this one comes in really handy for me.  We don’t use the dishwasher to wash dishes that often.  I, or the kids, normally do them by hand.  So, I don’t usually buy a lot of dishwasher detergent.  (That’s an item that is quite expensive.) We have

How To Make Fabulous Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I was back in the kitchen again.  My kids told me that I was supposed to bake them chocolate chip cookies last week.  Well, of course, I used some of the chocolate chips in the Edible Flowerpot Cake and didn’t think that they would remember about the cookies.  Of course, they did.  So, my daughter, London, was in the kitchen early this

How To Make A Fabulous Homemade Pound Cake

My Fabulous Homemade Pound Cake! Nothing makes the house smell more like home than a delicious homemade pound cake.  I decided to whip one up today.  I like to eat my pound cake slices hot out the oven or warm a slice quickly in the microwave.  I know a lot of people like a dollop of ice cream or whip cream and fruits on top.  Not me.  I just like the delicious taste alone.  Just use the ingredients and directions {Read More}
