There was a time when I might not bat an eyelash to pay whatever the cost might be for a personalized door mat. That time, however, was prior to marriage.

The thing they don’t tell you when you break your foot? You won’t want to be on your feet baking or cooking for the duration of your time on crutches or in the boot.

Homemade Apple Pie Recipe

Apple Pie and I have a very long history together. I’d probably say it’s one of my most favorite pies. Freshly baked apples with a light and fluffy sweet crust, piping hot from the oven, sprinkled with cinnamon and topped with a scoop of ice cream? Oh my my. You  can just imagine my dismay when one came out of a box at a holiday
