Homemade Chocolate Strawberry Pudding

While I must confess to buying store-bought puddings from time to time, there is nothing like homemade pudding to satisfy that sweet tooth! And really, it's not too difficult to make either. It's one of the easiest and quickest desserts that you can make at home and it travels fairly well so you can bring it along with you to a pot luck or for that perfect fall picnic at the park.

The possibilities are endless too! You can add many different variations and make chocolate pudding parfaits just by adding a layer of graham crackers, cookie crumbs or sprinkles to the bottom or by toasting a marshmallow or adding chocolate shavings on the top.

Using Washi Tape in Your Bible Journal

Using Washi Tape in your Journaling Bible

Earlier this year I received a journaling Bible and I have really been enjoying exploring my creative side and mixing that with time spent in my Bible. There are so many different fun Bible journaling supplies.  One of my all time favorite supplies that I come back to nearly every single time is washi tape. Every month, I receive more supplies as part of my partnership with Dayspring that come in the Illustrated Faith devotional kits, including a new roll of washi tape every month. Today, I'm showing you how to use washi tape in your Bible.  I think you are going to love it.

Mojito Lime Chicken with Black Bean Salsa

Tracking Pixel
You know the feeling after you have been gone from home for a few days, there is nothing like coming home to a home cooked meal, especially if you have been eating out for days on end! Home cooked meals are my comfort food. There is something about using fresh, local ingredients {even better if some of those ingredients come from my garden} and knowing exactly what is in my food to give me that comfort food feeling, which is why I am so excited to be partnering with Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken, raised locally on the west coast {the best coast} with no antibiotics ever.

Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken is one of the best foundations for your new comfort food meals. We all think of those traditional comfort foods as being really heavy and super rich, but I'm happy to say that there is an evolution happening and comfort food is becoming healthier and simpler to make. With growing kids at home and a metabolism that seems to be slowing down as I get older, I'm happy to embrace this new comfort food. 

I'm sharing one of our family favorites today, Mojito lime chicken served with a black bean salsa. I always make extra chicken because it's fabulous the next day cut up and served on top of a bed of lettuce. Two meals in one is always my favorite!

{easy to make} Antler Jewelry Tree Tutorial

I have a thing for antlers. They are spread all throughout my house. I love to decorate with them, so when I found a faux antler Christmas tree pick at my local Hobby Lobby, I picked it up. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.  I have a lot of small jewelry pieces and sometimes out of sight means out of mind. If I don't have something in front of me, I forget about it. But not now! I can see all my favorite pieces on the DIY faux antler jewelry stand and it's a beautiful art piece too! I'm partnering with HomeRight to share with you how I created this jewelry stand {for under $5!} and how you can too!

Glitter Coffee Mug Made Two Different Ways

I was slow to the party, but after living in the birthplace of Starbucks for a few years, I finally started drinking and enjoying coffee. I like my coffee iced, I like it sweet, I like it blended, I like it plain, I like it hot, I like it period. Since I drink coffee every day, I have started making cups and mugs that I like to drink my coffee out of. I made a few new glitter mugs and I made them two different ways.

Would you believe that one of these is made using heat transfer vinyl cut on my Silhouette machine? The other is made using mod podge and glitter and it's actually safe to wash and use! I'm showing you how to make both kinds of glitter mugs today
