bacon cinnamon rolls! these are amazing, sweet and savory! your man will LOVE them!

Around here we love Rhodes dough, as you might have noticed!  There is nothing better than delicious rolls or bread straight out of the oven. A few months ago my husband asked me if I had ever heard of bacon cinnamon rolls, I hadn’t, but he requested that we try making them. I will say this: they’re a new favorite. Like, breakfast on birthdays and holidays favorite. We had to hand the leftovers off to some neighbors just to stop ourselves from eating all twelve ourselves. They are that good! They also happen to be so easy to make using the Rhodes Traditional Cinnamon Roll dough so that’s what I did. Check out the recipe & enter our very sweet giveaway below!

Entire House Cabinet Makeover for Under $200!

Using java gel stain by General Finishes and Ikea knobs and handles, I gave my entire houses' cabinets a makeover for less than $200! Ever since I first moved into my house (almost two years ago) I wanted to refinish my cabinets. I am not, not, not a fan of honey oak. The issue is, when I first moved in I was pregnant, then I had a little baby and… well I was basically low on energy! To top it off, big house projects cost money, and it seems like there is never enough of that to make the changes I’d like to! Then, one day I was scrolling through my blogroll and I found this post of Brooke’s from All Things Thrifty. It made me think, “hey, if it really is that easy, maybe I could do my cabinets.” And then I thought, “nah. That was just a clock. It might not be the same.” A few months passed, and then Brooke posted this tutorial on how to stain an oak banister dark, and I thought, “Let’s do this thing.” [Read more...]

Easy Chicken Almond Puffs

Easy chicken almond puffs! Perfect for any shower or get together! Today’s post reminds me of my Grammy Kresge! She is such a good cook and any time we have a family party or get together she brings half the food herself, I swear! Right now she and my grandpa are serving a mission in the Philippines! We are so proud, but boy do we miss them. Anyway, she would frequently bring these chicken almond puffs to a big gathering, and they are a great, frugal way to fill a crowd! If you have never had these before, they are sort of a cheaper replacement for sandwiches. They look fancy, but don’t be intimidated! They are super easy to throw together and this recipe makes a TON. [Read more...]
