My current addiction includes eating steel cut oats with berries and walnuts for breakfast. The quick cooking steel cut oats are ok but expensive. The regular steel cut oats taste better and are way cheaper. You can buy them from the bulk bin at your local health foods store or co-op. But let’s be real, being a full-time mom, employee, caregiver, and wife. I honestly don’t have time every morning to make steel cut oats on the stove.
And my pocketbook can’t afford me to stop by Whole Food every morning for a cup of steel cut oats from the hot bar.
So I began the search for a recipe but I had a hard time finding one that was made completely with water. So after much trial an error I have discovered one that works. If you try it let me know in the comments below.
In the morning, give each jar a stir. If you would like to store them to eat later in the week, allow then the cool completely. Then cover each jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Oats then can be reheated in the microwave and desired toppings added. Also, these oats won’t go all weird on you once cooled. Unlike rolled oats, steel cut oats will become a bit creamer each day.
Many memories of my grandmother revolve around food. Her fried chicken, vegetable beef soup, mustard greens, pecan pie, and especially her pound cake. I have to say that her pound cake is like none other. It has the perfect crumb with a slightly textured crust.
The featured image is my grandmother’s actual recipe in her handwriting with a few edits. I also added some clarity to the recipe below that she forgot to note in the recipe.
Once done cooking remove from oven and allow to cool. To remove from pan take a knife around the inner and outer circle edges. Place plate or serving dish on top of the pan, then turn pan over quickly.
This is me and I am an indoor plant killer. Sad and oh so true. No matter how hard I have tried I can’t get a plant to live in my home. I really want to bring plants inside but have continued to struggle for years. I have tried aloe plants, cacti, succulents, orchids, bromeliad, lily plants, waffle plants, bamboo, philodendron, and golden pothos. No luck at all keeping any of them alive at all.
I love plants and when it comes to gardening outdoors I’ve got a green thumb. There are benefits to having plants indoors and I want them…
I want to be the woman in the picture below. My hands in the dirt with the ability to look at an indoor plant and give it exactly what it needs. Sure, I would love to have several like her but I will settle for one. Just one, please!!! I would really love to overcome this challenge and could use your help.
I will do almost anything to keep one alive in my home. Nonetheless, I am going to buy another plant this weekend in hopes that I can keep it alive. It is also important to know that plants have been known to die within 48 hours under my care. So please share your advice ASAP!!!!

Where I live the only thing that delivers besides the mailman is the pizza man. No Amazon Prime Now, Chinese food delivery… I know sometimes it makes me sad too. But I was so excited when I found out I could get groceries delivered via Instacart! I have now ordered probably about eight times and here is my experience.
I find this to be extremely helpful, and some days a life saver, in getting things done on the weekend. As a mom, wife, caregiver, small business owner and full-time employee it is just wanted I need get some time back for myself. There is a yearly unlimited shopping fee option, that I am not willing to pay, that takes care of the $5.99 shopping fee per order. To me $5.99 is worth and levels out the time I would spend driving to the store, looking for my items, fighting off cravings on the snack aisle, and then standing in line. Also, the shopping fee can be waived if you order featured items. In most cases, the featured items are regular items on my grocery list – so I usually don’t have to pay the shopping fee.
I also utilize the notes for items that I am picky about to give the shopper more direction when selecting produce, meats, bread and other particular items. However, there are some cons and pros:
I shop with Instacart at least 2-3 times a month and will continue to do so! Try it for yourself and tell me what you think. Need an incentive? Click here https://inst.cr/t/ASUFcyTze and we each will save $10 on an order.

For a while now I have been wanting to take up yoga but have no clue how. I searched the internet for answers but didn’t really find what I was looking for. I would go to a class but I am worried about embarrassing myself -not knowing all the poses or at worse passing gas in front of everyone. So I am asking your feedback and help!
Please feel free to share any other tips and advice. I really want to start off right.
Deciding I needed a lifestyle change is what was going through my head when I went online and discovered Whole 30 in mid-2016. When I tried it the first time, during the month of October 2016 it was a challenge – but I was prepared. I did lose weight but the greatest benefit was I learned how not to eat processed foods. I did complete a full 30 days and here is how I prepared prior to starting:
I truly believe that these steps were essential towards me successfully completing the Whole 30. I will be doing another Whole 30 in the future and will post so others can join me!
Hello, my name is Cortney, and I am a pee on a stick addict.
It began after I got married. I got that thing called “the baby itch” and it seemed to take over and turned into “baby fever”. I couldn’t read enough about trying to conceive and how to get pregnant. I charted, I took basal temperatures and took soooooooo many pregnancy tests.
I mean I knew you could only get pregnant a few days out of the month but that did not stop me from testing at all times of the month. I would pee on a stick first thing in the morning – you know that is the best time to test! If the morning test wasn’t positive I would even pee on a stick at work. If I ran out of tests I would quietly stop on the way home and pick up another.
My favorite test was the, First Response, but sometimes those were too expensive. Then I would hit up the dollar tree and pick up their pregnancy test or order a bunch of dip strips online. I could easily spend $40 or more a month buying tests. Nonetheless, my addiction grew stronger every month at the start of each period. Tearing tests apart I would hold them up to the light asking myself and my husband…do you see a line? Is that a line right there? No matter the date post ovulation I never fully trusted any result unless it was clearly positive with bold lines. So I kept going!
Today I still have struggles. Every now and again I get “the baby itch” but it stays under control, my two kids help to keep it from turning into “baby fever”.
To my fellow Pee on a Stick Addicts…if you need support please get help. The sites below my help your on your journey to getting that bold line you are looking for.
