In my previous post about being nominated for the Liebster Blog Award, I promised to have a separate post about the nominees that I picked, and here it is. Before we get into that, you can read about my award Q&A here.
Let me begin by listing my criteria for picking the 11 blogs for this award.
I am sure you (or anyone out there other than professional chefs) do not like to prepare and cook dinner for hours, and if you are like me, you like your meals be as easily prepared and minimum cooking required.
Here, I have a complete meal all cooked at once without even turning on the stove!!!!!
Easy Oven Baked Dinner
OK, first, defrost some chicken pieces, and marinade them, i used leg portions
Then, cut some veggies, whatever you like, besides the above veggies, broccoli and cauliflower could also work really well
Add potatoes (use small ones or half the larger ones), the veggies, and meats like so in a roasting pan
Bake at 375 degrees, uncover, for 45 mins to an hour.
Make sure you turn them half way through.
And be sure to check the internal temp of the meat!
There you have it, easy oven bake dinner, without even using different oven temps or different pans. All the ingridents in one place! YAY!
My husband has a few bucket seats lying around and he told me to recover one of the seats. I didn't think much of it since I thought he wanted it in one of our cars.
Then he would come home everyday asking if I was done with it, i was confused why the sudden urgency. Turned out he sold it without telling me, and he already got the money and he promised it would be recovered. OMG!
So I went to work on it......
But having never done anything like that before, I royally messed up the first time... (used a wrong fabric, so it wouldn't stretch one single bit to form fit the seat)
So I had to start over, very carefully un-stitched the old seat cover, and used those pieces as templates.
after a few days (felt like months though), it was getting there!
I once saw on Pinterest about reusing a glass jar/mason jar. Of course, I save my mason jar for making jam or kimchi, but i have TONS of other glass jars that I saved from spaghetti sauce to pickle jars.
So I made some into valentine themed candle holders.
They are soooo easy to make, you just have to try it
simply use mod podge (sold at hobby lobby, Micheal's, and major super-centers) to glue tissue paper onto the outside of the jars, then cut out whatever shapes with different color tissue paper and mod podge them onto the first layer of tissue paper. put whatever candles that fit inside them, u are DONE!
When I moved into our house, the old mail box was all rusted and nasty like it has never been cleaned before. I would loved to have a new one, but knowing that costs money i decided to just spray paint it.
Just clean the mail box really well, sanded the rusted spots, then just spray paint it with chalk board paint so u can write on it.
then i got some wood alphabets (which i had for a long time) and painted (with acrylic paint) our last name, and glued magnets on the back and stick them onto the mail box!
I dug out an old mail holder that was very out dated. So i sanded it down and spray painted it with chalk board paint, then painted some bamboo on both sides with acrylic paint then spray painted with clear coat paint.
We have this right to the front door for our mail, so i thought i should also make something to hold our keys. I once saw a picture of someone who made a key rack with old keys, so i tried to copy it.
I very very carefully bend each old key using vice-grip and then super glued them onto our mail holder
