We’re going to start celebrating the start of our weekends with a new feature entitled “Pin it Fridays.” Each week on the blog, we’ll post pictures of recipes, crafts, organizational tools, etc. for you to try out, share with your friends, and post to Pinterest. For those of you unfamilar with Pinterest, it’s a really cool social media site that allows you to pin ideas to a virtual “board” for the world to see. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use it…this first week, we’ll teach you all you need to know!
Each week, feel free to comment or add your own ideas and tips at the end of the post. As women, we hold a lot on our plates, and you never know if something you post can add a little less stress to someone else’s life. Now who wouldn’t want that?
Spring is in the air, but winter is apparently having a hard time leaving. Look on the bright side…this means a couple more weeks of eating some healthy warm soups for dinner. This week, check out a couple of one pot meals that are quick, easy, and delicious. Just click the images to get the full recipe!
Celebrate the month of March with some Irish cheddar and potatoes. If you can’t find the specific type of cheddar, any sharp cheddar will do the trick. This soup has about 10 minutes of prep time, then simmers for about 20-25 minutes on its own, giving you some time to get other things done.
Pumpkin contains loads of Vitamin A, and makes this unusual chili extremely rich and flavorful. For those of you with an aversion to spicy foods (like me), just leave out the jalapenos. This entire meal takes about 30 minutes start to finish.
