Quick & Easy Marinara Sauce

Quick & Easy Marinara Sauce

About six months ago I started educating myself about the "stuff" that is in processed foods.  Mainly, high fructose corn syrup.  I am not going to get into why it is bad for you. What I will say that with hypothyroidism, it is best to stay away from it as much as you...

Bath Seat Basket

Here is a baby shower gift I put together for my friends Mike & Monique, the same people who got the Duck Towel Cake.  I had decided on a bath time theme with this bath seat being the “basket”. Once I decided on the basket type, it was easy – I looked at their...
