Dine in an Igloo at the Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock

If you told me a year ago that I would be in Sedona this time this year, I'd say, "of course I will be!" I visit the 'Spiritual Mecca of the Southwest’ often. It's my escape from the hustle and bustle of Phoenix. But if you told me that I would be dining in an igloo, I'd probably laugh. First of all because we live in the desert and second, why? Until I visited Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock, I didn't really understand the concept of dining in an igloo. Sedona’s only full-service spa and an 18-hole golf resort is set amidst the spectacular beauty of the magnificent red rock formations surrounding Sedona. The igloo adds the magical, romantic feeling to the resort. But in fact, …

50 + Divine Carrot Cake Recipes

I'm a big carrot cake fan! I think it started when we moved from the U.K. to the U.S. and tried it, along with the traditional American foods and desserts. It was so different, especially the cream cheese frosting. I've loved it ever since. These days, the traditional carrot cake is my favorite. I like it perfectly moist, using grated carrots. But as people have more dietary restrictions, we now have different varieties of carrot cake like gluten free carrot cake, Vegan carrot cake, Paleo carrot cake, air fryer carrot cake, eggless carrot cake and so many more Carrot Cake Recipes. People love baking carrot cakes around Easter as well, like an Easter Bunny Carrot Cake. Check out these …

How to Make an Easy DIY Leprechaun Trap

St. Patrick's day is approaching and lately, I've seen DIY Leprechaun traps floating around the internet. I'm curious about how one truly catches a Leprechaun. Apparently for Leprechaun's, it's all about finding the Pot o' Gold at the end of the rainbow. And whiskey, I hear. If you're looking for the best Leprechaun Trap ideas, you've come to the right place. Catching a Leprechaun would take great thought. And time is all I have lately. Just kidding. Not really. The kids love lucky charms so inviting them into this St. Patrick's Day Craft was easy. Basically, I realized that it was all about the path. I wanted to create a beautiful pathway to the trap. One filled with flowers, preferably dandelions and lucky …

5 Essentials for Homemade Garbage Disposal Cleaning

5 Essentials for Homemade Garbage Disposal Cleaning

Who knew at my age I would be learning how to clean my garbage disposal? I started ironing at 45 years-old so I can certainly learn how to clean my drain at 48, right? Unclogging drains, though, is not one of my strong points. I am typically the person that clogged the drain... I was a late bloomer with everything.  Marriage, kids, and now cleaning.  I managed on my own for many years with bleach and Windex.  They were my  best friends. I'm not sure if it was the Greek in me that gave me that idea or Forensic Files, but somehow I knew to use bleach. So, whenever anything went wrong in any of my apartments like toilet clogging or the drain clogging, I'd pour bleach …

Delicious and Decadent Keto Super Bowl Recipes

Super Bowl Sunday is approaching and although I am not a huge football fan, I am a huge food fan. The two kind of go together. The 2020 Super Bowl was played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on Sunday, February 2, 2020. The Big Game will featured the AFC Champions and the NFC Champions. This year will be a little different due to Covid. The Kansas City Chiefs will be playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that doesn't mean our family can't celebrate the Super Bowl 2021 at home together. So, I'm always up for a Super Bowl Party! Game day is fun because it means community and getting together. Everyone is celebrating a game day tradition and it always involves …

Fun Gnome Valentines Printables for the Kids

This year I’m making homemade Valentine Gnomes. I fell in love with Scandinavian gnomes and Nordic gnomes while visiting Finland. Gnomes were everywhere. Since visiting Finland, I have become obsessed with Gnomes; Finnish Gnomes and Swedish Gnomes! They are so cute and cuddly and represent a country I fell in love with. These Valentines Gnomes were easy to make, using just a couple items and some socks. The best thing was that they were a no sew caft! I brought some back from the North Pole and realized that here in the U.S they are really popular during Christmas. As I researched more, I realized that there is a whole Gnome community out there and that there is a Gnome for every occasion, including …

300 + Decadent Valentine's Day Desserts for the Whole Family

One of the main reasons I like Valentine's Day is for the sweets.  Not the roses, or the romantic dinners, but for the sweets.  I have a major sweet tooth and Valentine's Day is an excuse for me to indulge. It's always fun to make Valentine's Day desserts and treats. I love this time of year because it makes me want to try new, creative treats like cookies, cupcakes and cakes.  The kids absolutely love it too, along with crafts and Valentine boxes for school. My favorite Valentine's treats are chocolate covered strawberries and anything with whipped cream. I love anything chocolate, like chocolate cake, Red Velvet Cake (has cocoa), white chocolate, hot chocolate, chocolate mousse, milk chocolate, chocolate fondue, and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. …
