In Cooking & Crafting by Jen4 Comments

My youngest daughter takes her bath time very seriously. She likes to use homemade soaps and says that sugar scrubs make “her skin feel fancy”. I am down with that mentality and agree with her. We use a lot of essential oils in our family and so making our own safe and wonderful-smelling bath products is pretty easy to do. …

After a quick trip to urgent care to confirm her diagnosis and for meds, and since going to church was now out of the picture, I decided to do some baking! I scrounged around the kitchen and discovered that I actually had all of …

Blueberry Mini Donuts

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen

About a month ago my husband and I picked up one of those little lava cake/bundt maker machines on mega clearance. It sat on the counter for over a month until we opened it up to try our hand at making some orange creamsicle donuts. They turned out delicious (we ate them all so there were none for pictures), someday …

DIY Flower-Shaped Pressed Bath Bombs

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen

It’s all the rage these days to make your own bath bombs, but when my now 9-year-old daughter said she wanted to make them for her most recent birthday party that was spa-themed, I was a little hesitant. I have heard that the round shape molds can be pretty tricky. So in order to meet her request, but not lose …
