Spring Pallet Projects

Buying the lumber for projects can get pretty pricey depending on how much you need. So finding the best deal is always a plus. 

DIY (1)

I bet a lot of you have noticed stacks of pallets out back by your local grocery or hardware stores dumpster. It usually is SUCH an eye sore but it is actually a gold mine! Most stores will just give them to you for FREE!!!! When taken apart right you will then have free lumber to help create beautiful projects around your house instead of spending your precious hard-earned dollars on paying for lumber. 

Here are some ideas to use those trash pallets into spring time GOLD.

Spring Cleaning for the Lazy

If you’re anything like me the thought of deep cleaning your house seems so distant, far away, impossible, to infinity and beyond! Being a stay at home mom to some people may seem really lazy because we don’t “work”. The truth is we are actually so busy we don’t even have time to brush our teeth until noon unless you’re super mom. And honestly.. Does Super Mom even exist?

St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids

I was just browsing around on line and thought I would share some of these cute children’s crafts with you guys. I am so excited to try some of them.. How cute are those Popsicle magnets?!

I think it’s important for children to participate in crafts. I do it as a hobby but  my little one is always watching me and wants to be engaged. I think its good developmental skills for children at a young age to start using their minds artistically and it gets them away from the TV for a little while. My little boy is just under 2 but he is so proud of his artwork even at a young age.

Ritz Cracker Chicken

In our family we have a little toddler who was diagnosed with food allergies just before his first birthday so often times meals can be challenging. I am constantly looking for new recipes to make meals fun and exciting instead of the same ol’ stuff all of the time.

My son is allergic to Milk, Eggs and Peanuts. Most people confuse a milk allergy with being Lactose Intolerant but there is actually a difference. It is the protein that is in the milk that causes our little guys throat to close not the dairy part. All animal milk makes this same protein. So it is Almond and Coconut milk in our house.

I have found that there is often dairy in breadcrumbs that you get at the store. So I decided to make my own. I tried this out about a month ago and it was a BIG hit at our house. I am in no means the best cook out there and my chicken always turns out dry so I learned about a trick that helps keep chicken stay moist in the oven and not too dry. So here is my take on Moist Ritz Cracker Chicken.
