How to make your own homemade daily shower spray

This is all you need to make your own Daily Shower Spray
Spraying your shower down with daily shower spray, like this one from Tilex, is a great way to keep your shower looking, feeling, and smelling great in between deep cleanings.  But it's not cheap!  One 32 oz. bottle can cost over $3, and it will only last for a week or two at the most!  For just a few dollars more, you can purchase the ingredients to make many gallons of daily shower cleaner.  Click below to read more.

Fried Rice

Fried Rice


Fried rice is an awesome way to use up leftover rice.  If you also happen to have some left over meat, dice it finely, and throw that in the wok too.   It doesn't matter if it's beef, chicken, or pork - it all works.  I made this particular batch of fried rice to go as a side dish for my Orange-Sesame Chicken but I have been known to serve this as an entree when I add meat to it.   To read more about this click below.

Orange Sesame Chicken

Orange Chicken
My husband has been wanting Asian food for weeks now, and I haven't had the chance to make it for him.  One of the reasons why is our deep fryer, which is used to fry the chicken, is neatly put away.   Since I used it yesterday, I thought it would be a great idea to keep it out and use it again this afternoon to make Orange Chicken.  Except I forgot to share my wonderful idea.  My husband cleaned it until it looked brand new again and then put it away.  Now I need to ask him to get it back out for me.  This seems to happen all the time, and he never complains.  He is so good natured about things like that - this is one of the reasons I have still huge crush on him.  Click below to read more.

Hand Cut French Fries

Hand cut french fries with flaky sea salt

These here are the real deal.  Just like board-walk fries but even better.  I don't know anyone who doesn't love real hand-cut French Fries.  I'm not talking about limp, fast food fries or the flash frozen ones you can get at your local supermarket.  I'm talking about real, honest-to-goodness hand cut french fries.  They're so good they're worth the extra hassle involved in making 'em...and I'm not gonna lie.  It takes a few hours to get crispy perfection like this.  But once you eat them, you'll understand what I'm talking about.  Click below to read more.

Creamy Barbecue Dip

I love this both because it tastes so good and because it's so easy to make.  I use this dip primarily with oven-warmed potato chips, but it would be good for just about anything - my son loves it on his chicken fingers!  Click below to read more.
