Tastes like Samoas!

I just discovered Kellogg's Fiber Plus bars with coconut, chocolate and caramel. I love Girl Scout Samoas but they're aren't exactly healthy.

Digital Scale

My go-to tool in the kitchen is my digital scale. It was a gift from my daughter and it has been my consistent companion when trying to handle portion control. No more guesswork or estimating.

They are a product of our environment, our self-esteem, our relationships with others and a host of other factors. They don't have to rule our lives. Just like ants can ruin a picnic, ANTs can ruin a good da...

Take a Poll!

I like using the poll feature of SP. There are seven different categories, so I take a different category each day and answer a poll question. They are interesting and some are funny and some are serious but it keeps SP in the forefront of my day, which is a good thing!

Less IS more!

Over the past several years I have been slowly reducing the amount of 'things' in my house. I found they were taking over my life between managing them, dusting them, cleaning around them, etc. I began looking at each 'thing' and asked myself two questions: "Does this have true sentimental value t...
