• Pantry Makeover

    My pantry has been in need of a reorganization for a while. Let’s just say it has been a hot mess for way too long now. My daughter was with us this past week and she decided to work on our pantry! Score!! We sat down together and worked on a plan for things that I needed for the pantry such as new containers, baskets, and other bins that we would need for good organization. She got on the computer and found some good options on Amazon and they arrived in just a few days! I can’t believe we are actually going to get this pantry done! So the next…

  • Baking a 3-Tier Cake!

    My youngest daughter turned 21 this past month, and you know what that means . . . CAKE! I have the recipe down below if you want to try it out! SO EASY! I found this Funfetti Cake recipe on Pinterest, but I was worried! I’ve only made a multi-level cake once before. I’m more of the 9×13 cake person. I love Cake by Courtney and the cake decorators who make AMAZING creations! Check out this STOP-MOTION animation of my process! It took about 3 hours to make the whole cake, from start to finish! That’s including cooling, but I also only had ONE baking pan to work with. This…

  • Showing My Easter Table + Fun Family Traditions

    When my kids were little we would hide plastic eggs in our backyard and let them go hunt for the prize inside, which was normally candy of some sort. One year we put chocolate inside and soon realized that the sun had melted the chocolate. Lesson learned. Another fun thing we would do was dye eggs and then we had fun decorating them. We would dip an egg halfway in one color for a few minutes, then turn the egg over and dip the other half in another color. The kids thought that was cool! We would use crayons, glitter, stickers, and just have so much fun with all of…

  • Sink Dreams Come True!

    Hi, I’m Sue and I live in Southern California in a town called Temecula. It’s about an hour north of San Diego. Many people do not know where Temecula is but it is nicknamed Wine Country and it’s a very beautiful place to live. My family has lived here for 14 years. Our home is a place that I love to be—in fact, I prefer to stay home many nights instead of going out! Are you like that? A homebody too?  There is no place like being home and I love my home. Our home is a work in progress I like to say I am always working on something, whether…

  • Kitchen Remodel

    SUE’S KITCHEN REMODEL We moved into our home 14 years ago and have never been able to update our kitchen until now! The granite that we have lived with for all these years had an orange and brown color to it. The prior owners upgraded the kitchen with Thermador appliances and a Sub Zero refrigerator which have been a nice addition to the space. We had been wanting to replace the sink and faucet for a long time and so we just decided to do it!  It turned out AMAZING!  Below are the before pictures of the kitchen.   LANGE COPPER APRON FRONT SINK  SINKOLOGY.COM Believe it or not, the sink…
