DIY Bathroom Storage {for around $5}

I’m in the midst of a bathroom mini-renovation (more on that later this week). But, due to every local hardware store being out of apparently everything, I couldn’t work on the bathroom over the weekend.  On the bright side, that delay gave me the opportunity to work on a few accent pieces, one of which is this storage box.

Set up to Succeed

Back in April we added raised beds to our garden. The idea of having warmer soil temperatures, control of soil quality and fewer weeds appealed to us. Since then, we’ve made even more changes to our garden to make it easier and more fun to grow our own food.

Homemade Hummus

Making your own hummus is one of those things that lots of bloggers, like Money Saving Mom and Food Babe recommend for some very good reasons. 1) When you buy Sabra, one of the most popular brands, you’re actually buying from Pepsi Co., a company that has donated $1.7 million against GMO labeling. And, 2) the savings are sort of unbelievable – 25¢ can either get you 2 tbsp of store-bought hummus or 21 tbsp (~ 1.5 cups) of homemade hummus. Add these reasons to the ability to control your own flavor and texture, as with most things homemade, and I was sold on the idea.

Banana Walnut Pancakes {100% whole wheat}

I am continually on the hunt for a pancake recipe that uses whole wheat flour without turning out pancakes that have the consistency of an old dish sponge. This recipe is the best I’ve found and after making a few minor tweaks, these were the best 100% whole wheat pancakes I’ve eaten.
