Oh so Clever!

So, we bought our house about a year ago, and we are still trying to figure out what we want to do with it. How we want certain rooms designed, what certain things we still need to purchase, and how do we pack as much as we can into small spaces, such as a pantry!

Anyone else have that problem where you wish your pantry was 3 times bigger? You see all these cool things on Pinterest on how to save space, well my lovely A created a space saver all on his own πŸ™‚ ❀

We had this shoe rack in our coat closet that we used for all of our shoes,

but the shoes would constantly fall down behind the bars and it just got really annoying. So we took it down and got something different.






Well after A took it down he had this brilliant idea to put it in our pantry! Man was this such a smart idea! It works so well for all of our boxed things, such as cereal and pasta. MY HERO ❀ ! We still don’t have tons of room in the pantry but it is so much less crowded and maybe a little more organized πŸ˜‰ !

What sorts of things have you done with your pantry to help organize/space save?








Carrot & Spice Cookie

Hello cookie world! This is my new cookie in probably 2 or so years and it feels great! Best of all it tastes GREAT (even though A didn’t love it ;-))!

My Daughter wanted a cherry cookie but we didn’t have any cherries so this is what we settled on, and she loved them. So did the boys!

Carrot & Spice Cookie





  • 1 stick salted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded carrot (freshly shredded for best result)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Cream together butter and sugars
  3. Add eggs and vanilla
  4. Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda & flour
  5. Add carrot and mix well
  6. Place spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake 10-12min


I am thinking about maybe making this into a sandwich cookie with a cream cheese icing center, we will see if it happens πŸ™‚

A lot of love for something New!

Hello beloved followers. It has been quite a while since I have even typed a draft on here!

I am checking in to give a couple life updates and to let you know I have officially started baking again! Woo Hoo! I just haven’t had the ambition and lets face it, my 5 family circus keeps me quite busy πŸ˜‰

A couple weeks ago I baked us some of my chocolate chip cookies, and that is all that I needed to jump start my urge to bake again! I created a brand new cookie last night (with the help of my beautiful, strong willed amazing daughter!), that surprise will be posted next week for you, so stay tuned!

What else is going on? Well the twins are 3 1/2, Ty is 1 1/2 and we bought a new house, well I guess it is a year now, but we LOVE IT!!! Every day is a new adventure and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
