Make Your Own Homemade Carpet Freshener

I have been using Homemade Carpet Freshener for years.  So, today I decided to include it on my blog.  Whenever I make carpet freshener, I will sometimes make air freshener.  I use most of the same ingredients with a little special addition for the Homemade  Air Freshener.  I really like this homemade carpet freshener.  Plus, I have a dog and I really don’t like using the store-bought carpet freshener due to the fact that she’s

Cabbage Cooked in Chicken Stock

Whether you like cabbage as a side dish or as a main dish (which is how I like it), you’ll love it even more if it’s cooked in a tasty chicken broth or stock.  Sometimes, I will have a meal with just greens and cornbread, cabbage and cornbread or any type of beans with cornbread.  Today, I wanted cabbage.  To really enjoy cabbage, I cook it in chicken stock/broth.  It gives it that savory flavor.  So delicious!  If you

Homemade Sock Drawer Divider

How many of you are tired of your junkie (unorganized) sock drawer? I was folding clothes and was about to put away the socks and I realized that I was totally tired of having a junkie sock drawer.  It was so hard to find a pair of socks to put on each day.  Not to mention, the socks were never paired up to its match.  (I must admit that I throw them in the drawer without a match, too.)  So, {Read More}

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
