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.

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.
