Outdoor Hydration and Snack Tablescape Idea

Today’s Outdoor Hydration and Snack Tablescape Idea and #HydrationToGo CVS shopping trip has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  We have two decks, one each on the main and lower levels of our home.  During the summer we use our lower deck the most because it’s nice and shaded.

Carolina Slaw Dog with Dairy Free Coleslaw

My Carolina Slaw Dog with Dairy Free Coleslaw recipe has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. This is #WhatAGrillWantsthis 4th of July.

Fun Cereal Storage Idea

This super fun cereal storage idea for #The7thMinion cereals has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser.

I went in to grab some cereal for the week and one thing led to another. I left the store with some new kitchen goodies and a fun idea to store the cereal. To store each box of cereal, I used a [Click here to continue reading]
