Crock Pot or Slow Cooker Heart Healthy Chicken Tacos

crock pot or slow cooker heart healthy chicken tacos recipe. So tasty and easy too!

Last week I told you about the awesome Address Your Heart with Campbell’s Pinterest sweepstakes and a little bit about how I am trying to live a more heart healthy life.

Campbell has a whole section on the Campbell’s Kitchen website of easy great recipes that are heart healthy and I adapted their slow cooker chicken taco recipe for my family. It is so easy to make and EVERYONE in my family loved it. That is a huge accomplishment because there always seems to be one person who isn’t very happy with dinner. I will admit both girls were a little worried about the chicken when they saw it but they loved it once they tried it. I didn’t include the green peppers and onions because I knew my daughters would balk at eating those. If you have a more adventurous family, I would be sure to include them. [Read more…]

Cute and Easy DIY Chalkboard Menu Board

Make your own DIY Chalkboard Menu Board. So easy and cute too! Lots of ways to personalize this project for your home.

 

Chalkboards are such a staple piece in my kitchen and they’re perfect for menu planning, notes, important dates and more. I love to keep a certain style in my kitchen and haven’t been able to find the right chalkboard so I decided to create my own using a gorgeous Paper Mache board, chalkboard paint and a paint brush. This entire project cost under $5 to complete and I’m in love!

Here is how to make your own cute and easy DIY Chalkboard Menu Board or Meal Planner

Supplies Needed:

– Paper Mache Shape (Found at Hobby Lobby for $1.99)

Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint (Found at Michaels $2.99)

– Paint Brush (Found at Dollar Tree, a set of 3 for $1)

Liquid Chalk or white chalk (Found at any craft store or on Amazon)

Directions:

DIY Chalkboard Menu materials chalkboard paint

  1. Lay your Paper Mache piece on a layer of old newspapers, magazines, cardboard or anything to protect your flooring surface.
  2. Using your chalkboard paint start by painting the surface of your chalkboard and then cover the sides with chalkboard paint as well. Allow to dry for 15 minutes or so and apply another layer of chalkboard paint to the top and sides and allow it to dry for another 15 minutes.

    Make your own Chalkboard

  3. Once the entire board is dry take a piece of white chalk and using the side cover the entire board and then erase it with a dry eraser. This will prep the board for your chalk sayings, drawings, menu plans and more. I love to use liquid chalk because it gives a crisper and bolder appearance.
  4. Feel free to hang this board up and place whatever important information you want displayed in your home.
  5. Enjoy your fun new DIY Chalkboard Menu Board!

 

I love how this project is so easy and frugal too but makes a huge impact. You could easily create one for your kid’s room and leave the fun notes or reminders. You could put one in your mud room with things to do etc.  There are so many places a chalkboard would be useful and cute in your home!

DIY EOS Lip Balm Valentine’s Day Cards with Free Printables

EverydaySavvy DIY Valentine EOS Lip Balm Card with a Free Printable

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you will love our cute free printable cards, made to hold those cool EOS lip balms. My tween loves to collect different EOS lip balms and these make fun Valentine’s Day treats for kids, tweens, teens or adults. These are so simple to make and we have created two different printable cards. One is Valentine’s Day themed and the other, you can use to give these fun lip balms as small gifts, all year long.

You can buy EOS lip balms just about everywhere. They sell them at Target, Walmart and at most drug stores for around $3-4. I sometimes buy them with coupons at Ulta stores too. CVS and Walgreens carries the Beauty 360 brand, made by Revo, which is a similar size to the EOS lip balm brand. You can also buy the Revo brand at the Dollar Tree, under the name Chap Ice for just a dollar! It is about half the size, but at a better price. I have included smaller printable cards to fit the smaller Dollar Tree Chap Ice/Revo lip balms.

DIY Rainbow Loom Charm Valentines with Free Printables

Easy DIY Rainbow Loom Charm Valentines with Free Printables. Easy to make and fun for kids!

My tween daughter recently started making all sorts of charms with her Rainbow Loom with the many tutorials online. Over the holidays, she made me a cute snowflake charm and I attached it to the pencil that I keep at my computer desk. My daughter makes these charms and since they stretch and loop around just about anything, she has charms attached to her backpack, her purse and her pencil case. She also makes them for friends at school.

I thought that Rainbow Loom charm valentines would be a cute idea for tweens since most are no longer buying the character valentines. There are many different types of Rainbow Loom charms and some are easy and others more complicated. If you are making them for the whole class, I suggest choosing an easier design or your tween can make them for siblings, neighbors or just for their close friends as something extra special. Some of the fun ones that I have seen are flowers, hearts, mustaches, animals. [Read more…]
