Kitchen Gadgets and Doo-Dads

Kitchen Gadgets and Doo-Dads

Things I Love: There’s too many to count…

A bee was out on a warm evening, and found her way into my beer. Poor thing! We gave her water and a drop of honey to help her sober up (hopefully) and find her way home.

Quick Smoothies – A Frugal Recipe [Acuisina Review + Giveaway!]

I make a smoothie every single morning.
