Don’t Look Down…Flooring Remodel

I live in an old house. It was old when I bought it, 15 years ago.  Built in 1920, it was unlike any other house in the area, the oldest in our neighborhood by decades.  It needed work. So, for 2 years, on a VERY limited budget, we gutted it to stud walls, rewired, replumbed, […]

Time for Camp…Using Mabel’s Labels!

This post is sponsored by Mabel’s Labels. All thoughts and opinions are my own. My son is growing up. I was just watching videos of him a couple of days ago, when he was 2 and 3, making cooking videos with me.  Back when he still said the words “four” and “door” like “fear” and […]

The Mazda3…A #ZoomZoom Review

A Doughmesstic job perk? Getting asked to do fun things.  Fun things that most people don’t have the luxury to do.  For example – getting asked to take the 2015 Mazda 3 for a spin. In Las Vegas. After a brief introduction to each other on Twitter (seriously kids, get yourself on Twitter, it’s where […]

Legrand Under Cabinet Lighting System…and a Giveaway

Sometimes, life is so full.  You don’t even realize that things could possibly be better, because life is just going your way. That usually lasts about 27 seconds. I kid, I kid. But there is some truth there.  For example, I adore my kitchen as it is, complete with 2 fridges, granite counters, a gorgeous […]

All coffee, all the time. And then?  There’s […]

The Nespresso VertuoLine

As a blogger, I am often asked to try out new products, new experiences.  It’s one of the best things about my job, but it’s a also a bit overwhelming at times. I get asked to take a look at a LOT of things. Sometimes, it pains me to say no.  It really does.  And […]

How To: The Perfect Turkey

My Mom never taught me how to make a turkey. Did yours? Despite the fact that every year in my existence she’s made turkey for Thanksgiving, I was never shown how.  Maybe I never asked, maybe I never cared, maybe she was so busy prepping a meal for 50 that showing a child the tricks […]
