Big Mac Sauce

Big Mac sauce is the main reason I order a Big Mac. The creamy, tangy, slightly sweet sauce really makes the not so great McDonald’s burgers worth eating. This homemade version is great for dipping fries in, drizzling over a salad, or slathered on a burger. Read More →

Ham & Potato Soup

Ham and potato soup is one of those recipes I make when I have absolutely no clue what to make, since I typically always have potatoes and ham of some kind on hand. It is delicious, very easy to make, and very filling. All of which are important for our family.

Keto Giant Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies are perfect for slowly easing yourself into the Keto diet!

A super delicious keto cookie that won’t mess with your progress!

DIY Peppermint Orange All-Purpose Spray

My favorite way to celebrate the change of the seasons is with amazing smelling cleaning products! I like flower scents, such as lavender, for spring, citrus in the summer, cinnamon in the fall, and peppermint in the winter! This all purpose spray has the base recipe I use for all my all purpose cleaners year round. All I do once the season changes is swap out which essential oils I use!

 

The combination of the peppermint and orange just smells like the holidays to me! I love having my home smell like candy canes all december long! This is a super quick and easy recipe that cleans well, disinfects, and is so much cheaper than buying holiday scented cleaning sprays from the store. I usually can get 1-2 months of use out of the ingredients I initially buy for it.
