Guest Post: Tetris-Chic Mirror Make Over

Hi Everyone! My name is Sarah from Sewing Parts Online and I'm thrilled to be sharing a fun and inexpensive home decor project. My fiance and I are moving into our very first home and, in true first time home buyer fashion, the budget doesn't leave much room for decorating. Let's be honest; it leaves no money for decorating. But, a happy wife is a happy life, and the old man agreed to a $10 'splurge': Thirft store mirror for $3 bucks and a tube of cheap ceramic tiles. Score!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The other day Shelby said that he was craving mashed potatoes so I decided to take a shot at some garlic mashed potatoes since that is always his favorite to order at restaurants. He loved how this recipe turned out! It is creamy and has a great garlic flavor that isn't overpowering.

LEGO Heart Necklace

A few months back I saw this idea on Squidoo for a heart necklace made out of LEGOS and I knew I had to have one. Jer has been working on a giant lego village so we had the big box of parts out and it seemed like a good time to rummage through for the pieces that I needed.

Pepper Jack Smothered Chicken

I was flipping through my recipe book the other day and came across this Pepper Jack chicken that I used to make all of the time but then somehow forgot about. I made it the other night and it was like discovering a recipe all over again. Originally it was pan fried and used packaged taco seasoning so I made it healthier by baking it and making my own taco seasoning. The result is juicier, healthier, and more flavorful. If you make the taco seasoning ahead of time, this chicken only requires about 5 minutes of prep too!

Taco Seasoning Recipe

I try to cut back on pre-packaged processed foods as much as I can. Not only are foods made from scratch better for you but they often taste better too! This taco seasoning is one of those things. So much better than the kind you find in the package.
