33 Kitchen Tricks to Save You Time & Hassle

33 Kitchen Tricks to Save You Time & Hassle. Interesting indeed. This is a little longer than some of the videos, but it does have some interesting "tricks" that I had not seen before. Like number 1? I could have used this when one of my children took my tenderizer!! Wow. Some of the items listed, you may have seen before, but it is certainly worth a view.

Take a look and see what you think. Our ever popular egg yolk with the bottle is in this one as well, but some very cool ones that I had not seen before are in here as well. Let me know your thoughts!

How-To Guide On Stocking First Kitchen--News Wednesday

How-To Guide on Stocking First Kitchen is the article we will look at today. It does seem to be the time of year when our young adult children are graduating and moving off to college, or perhaps starting out their new life together with their new spouse, certainly a time of change. This article has some great insight and wisdom for someone who is starting their "first kitchen".
What is very nice about this article is that it breaks things down by categories.  It also suggests checking out yard sales, or thrift stores for some of the items, such as the cookware. I remember when I got married at 17 and the people I worked with brought in items for me. It was marvelous. One was a heavy duty laundry basket that they have filled with several of these items on the list, seasonings, kitchen utensils, and Goodman's Vanilla. The vanilla was brought in by a co-worker who's last name was Goodman. Nice play on that one! If you would like to read the article yourself, just click here.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello all, wow, time is really flying. We are getting close to the end of May! I have an interesting kitchen for you to look over today.
I do love the oak cabinets in this kitchen. The lighting is excellent as well. Nice clean lines and lots of light. The floor covering is a little light in color for my taste. I would prefer a either the same color or a slightly darker color than the cabinets for the flooring.  This kitchen does not look like it has much storage space unless there is a pantry where we cannot see it?  I'm also not sure that I am a fan of drawers instead of cabinets doors. I believe using drawers can truly limit some of your space for items in your kitchen. Also, there is not a lot of counter space, even with the island. I would really like to see more counter space. Let me know your thoughts.

Fabulous Friday Funnies

Hello all! It's Friday! Yay. Here is today's funny. Not really a funny but more of a code to live by I believe.
I used to decorate cakes for a living. I can remember my father asking me why I wouldn't let my youngest have the left over icing. I told him it was Crisco, butter, and powdered sugar, and that child didn't need anymore sugar. Good times. Have a blessed Friday and be safe out there.

6 Easy Kitchen Cleaning Hacks

6 Easy Kitchen Cleaning Hacks. I am always trying to find new tips or hacks that I haven't seen or posted before. This find had two hacks, or cleaning tips I had not seen before, which really surprised me. After all, I think we've all seen the scooping up the egg yolk with the water bottle.                          Number one is great. My hubby and I have a shake for breakfast every morning, so this one I can tell you, does work very well! I had not seen tip number 3 or 4. They look pretty interesting. Numbers 5 & 6 I'd seen. I cook with cast iron a lot, so that one I most certainly knew! Let me know your thoughts.

Two Simple Kitchen Cancer Treatments Used Successfully to Beat Cancer--News Wednesday

Two Simple Kitchen Cancer Treatments Used Successfully to Beat Cancer is our news article this Wednesday. Disclaimer: This article is not an attempt to diagnose, prescribe, or give medical advice. It is simply sharing interesting true stories for educational purposes.  And what stories they are! This was absolutely fascinating. Like many people cancer has taken several of my family members, young and old. Two of my father's 3 siblings, both of my mother's siblings, a first cousin at age 15, and the list goes on. Perhaps that is why this article caught my eye.
This is a fascinating read, and slightly disturbing at the same time. Not disturbing in the sense that these two individuals cured their cancer with items from our kitchens, EVERY DAY ITEMS, but that our medical system does not focus on natural cures for cancer. If you would like to read the article yourself, you can click the link here.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hi all, I've been searching for some interesting kitchens, not necessarily ones I love everything about, but ones that have some interesting features that I like. This week, I am listing a modern kitchen (or so they tell me).
Let's take a look at this kitchen. First of all, I sooo love the gray cabinets. They are absolutely gorgeous and go nicely with the wood flooring as well. I like the lighting and the space around the island. It looks like the area on the one wall is not for prep work, simply to sit at perhaps? The color of the wood on the island, I do not care for. I'm not sure why they did not continue with the gray. To me the green color just looks completely out of place, but that's just view. I also feel like the sink wall is pretty bare, Perhaps that is the "modern" aspect. Let me know your thoughts!
