Even though we stopped exchanging gifts a few years ago, I was surprised to have a few ‘stocking stuffers’ from my guy this year.  Many stocking stuffers are nail polish, lip gloss or the like.  All great treats in their own right.  But mine were custom tailored to the things I love.  I got this […]

Potato Fans

Potato Fans

Attention potato fans!  You can make your baked potato look at least 5 times better by creating a potato fan.  I fan both russet and sweet potatoes.  You can make them in the oven or wrap them in foil and toss in your BBQ this weekend.  Make both kinds and you will have a gorgeous […]
