{ Snacks Cooked in a Mug }

Nothing makes me grin more than making a cute portion of something delicious.  Sometimes you just need enough to knock the edge off, not a whole pan's worth that you'll nibble on for five days.  That's why I LOVE this list of 18 Microwave Snacks You Can Cook in a Mug from!  I want to try about six of these IMMEDIATELY.  Here are my top three:

{ Super Menu for the Super Bowl}

It's about a week til kick-off for what many consider to be a biggest day of the year.  So you know what that's time to get your spread together.  We all know that the crockpot is God's gift to busy women, and unfortunately, the world doesn't stop for anything...not even the Super Bowl.  Here are are a few crock pot recipes to help you get the menu started courtesy of Buzz Feed Food.

Whether you need ideas for a yummy side or the perfect main dish, check out these slow cooker recipes here at Buzz Feed Food.

{ Easy Nutella Brownies }

Nothing makes a recipe more attractive to me than a simple ingredients list and very few steps.  This Nutella brownie recipe from fits the bill!  Perfect for spur of the moment guests, a last minute treat needed for a PTA meeting, or a sweet tooth craving that just won't quit.

Quick and easy instructions:

  • 1 cup (280g) Nutella
  • 2 eggs
  • 10 tbsp (62g) flour

  1. Put it in a bowl. Mash it up.  Pour into a pan or muffin tin.  Top with hazelnuts if you're feeling extra fancy.  Bake at 350F (180C) for around 30 minutes (less time for cupcake form, more time if the centers aren't baked through).

{Fall Tablescape Ideas}

There's nothing like the change in season to put you in the mood for redecorating.  With all of the fun fall events that are upon us, it's imperative that you have a welcoming yet stylish table for your guests to enjoy.  Fall is a great time to make use of nature's rustic charm and wonderful decor assets.  Use pine cones, leaves, apples or acorns to bring autumn to your table without breaking the bank.  And if you turn it into a fun game, you can use the kids as your free labor for gathering decor items from the yard.  (Did I say that???)

Here are a few things I found while perusing the net that I loved for my fall table.  So many will I ever decide?

{Recycle and Reuse Old Sweaters}

I just LOVE this idea!  What a great craft for this time of year!

We all have those sweaters that sit in the bottom of the drawer that you've convinced yourself for the last two winters that you'll wear again one day.  That day has never come and here you are on your third winter of deciding what to do with that same sweater.  Well here you go!  No need to feel guilty any longer about not wanting to wear that sweater that you once upon a time HAD to have.

As you're going through your old sweaters this fall, don't just throw or give away the ones that don't fit, that no longer are on trend, or that you haven't worn and can't justify keeping.

This is an excellent way to repurpose something unused into something adorable!  See how to do it at
