A Clutter Problem: Too Many Notes

Have you ever reached a point of feeling pulled in too many directions. Where there is so much to do, but you can’t quite recall what though.

It doesn’t help that I have not solidified a way to deal with my impromptu notes. I jot items down on sticky notes and I stuff them in my bag to bring home with the intent to revisit that evening.

Week 3 Update on the Hydroponic Garden

It’s been almost 3 weeks now since I started my seeds in the AeroGarden. It’s been such a joy to watch the seeds sprout and grow up through the pods. Basil as typical was the first to come out.

3 Things From My Instagram

Hey everyone!

I’ve been posting a bit more in the last few days over on my Instagram @just.a.little.bit.sweet

Here are 3 things you might be missing by only checking the blog!

Valentine’s Day Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

I have finally gotten my Peanut Butter Cookie recipe to where I want it.

So delicious I’m going to share it with a twist just for valentines day or if you’re a fan of the color red!

My First Attempt Making A Mugcake

In the past, I had heard of making cakes in the microwave with coffee mugs and this cookbook just happened to have one those such mugcake recipes. I had all the ingredients on hand already and thought it would be a great recipe to try out to christen the new cookbook.

A Week with a Robot Vacuum!

It’s been one week since we got a vacuum robot to try out. Here are our current thoughts based on our one week trial:

Giving Hydroponic Gardening a Try

I love to bring a few plants in when it starts to get cold. Common recipes I make each week call for chives and basil and having it on hand is quite useful.

Grocery store bought bunches of greens often are much more than I need and I feel wasteful not having a use for the remainder in upcoming meals.

Trying out a Robot Vacuum

I have been considering what value a robot vacuum may have, as our house has a lot of hardwood flooring. We are currently borrowing my In-Laws Roomba in order to test out how they work for us, before possibly buying. 

Simple Ricotta Basil Pasta

It’s nice when browsing through a cookbook that you find that recipe that sounds delicious and has simple cooking instruction. We found this pasta recipe gem in the We Care cookbook a few weeks ago and decided to try it out this evening.

Shells

Is there a pasta shape you dislike?

Some Mornings with Emma

Some mornings with Emma start off with lazy belly rubs or are full energy and insist fetching of tennis balls.

Out With The Old

Just a quick home update. I am making great headway on my unpacking/organizing front.
