Summer is Here!

Greetings everyone! Your favorite blogger here (ok, fifth favorite?). Oh it’s that time of year, folks. Time to light the grill, spread your picnic blanket and chill your beer. The beginning of backyard barbeque blowouts is here!

A Taste of Summer

Spring is here and summer is not far behind, which means plenty of backyard BBQs, pool side parties, and outdoor office outings.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s day! For those of you living under a Shamrock, St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious celebration held on March 17th.   A day of revelry, good food, great beer

Nagging Snacks!

‘Tis the season for snacking! It all starts with Halloween and won’t end ‘til, let’s be honest, after the New Year. Tiny bites of chocolaty nutty caramel cookie goodness

Cupcake Culture Courting

Once upon a time sweet, little cakes covered in thick frosting and sprinkles made their way out of the oven and into our hearts . 

Happy Birthday, USA!

Rugged, Reliable Rubbermaid Receptacles

See what I did there? For anyone that reads this blog, it’s apparent that I don’t do things normally. Well, normal for the average home owner.

Camping supplies are being unearthed from the garage, tents set up in back yards to be aired out, and grills are being scraped clean, ready for campsite burgers and steaks. Bring on the s’mores, it’s time to camp! When…
