The Easiest Tortilla Soup Recipe EVER




So a couple of days ago I couldn’t decide what to make for dinner. We’d had Mexican the night before and there were plenty of leftovers in the house so I decided I’d give tortilla soup a try. I was surprised at exactly how easy and good it was and had to share!

#WreathHOA Blogger Challenge: How To Make A Beach Wreath



@mvemother #wreathhoa #floracraft #howto #beachwreath
A few weeks ago I was one of 19 bloggers given the challenge to get crafty with a Styrofoam Wreath Form from Floracraft. With all the rain and the chill in the air I wanted to make something that screamed summer so I came up with a Beach Wreath! Directly below is the how-to and after that are still shots of the finished product.

The Challenge may have ended today but you can head over to Crafty Hangouts and find links to all the hangouts or check out the linky below!

A Home Remedy For Frizzy Hair


My Very Educated Mother Fighting #Frizz #DIY Style


I have naturally curly hair, and though I have finally grown to love it, one thing I don’t appreciate is the frizz that comes with it. Let’s face it, frizz is something we all battle and we are always happy when we find a quick and easy home remedy that works and if we’re feeling particularly smitten with a tip we might even share it.

In other news, my Baked Crab Rangoon recipe is in this month’s issue of All You magazine. Be sure to pick up your copy today, or you can just head over to my old post (forgive the photography)and read the recipe there!
