Sweet Potato Buffalo Chips

Here at our house we love to make sweet potato fries, but we recently mixed things up and made sweet potato chips.  They were a hit!  We will be making these often.  I'm kind of a huge blue cheese and hot sauce fan, so I spruced mine up a bit with these two ingredients.  This creation deserved a name and the spotlight on my blog today.  I present "Sweet Potato Buffalo Chips".

Recipe Binder

I want to share a simple project that might help you get all your recipes organized if you have tons of them hiding in drawers and books all over the house like I did.

I love finding recipes online, printing them, then hanging on the oven range using a magnet.  After I used these recipes, I'd stow the worthy ones in whatever drawer had a little open space to spare.  I also had a great collection of family recipes scattered throughout the house.

It was time to do something to get all of them into one place!

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken w/ Homemade Honey Mustard

The title is long as it is, but it should really say:
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Fried then Baked Chicken Thighs with Homemade Honey Mustard
That was just too, too long to use as the title!

My poor husband, Michael, has suffered from insane allergies his whole life.  He has recently decided to try eliminating gluten and dairy from his diet to see if that helps.  So far, so good!  He actually seems to be feeling better.  And guess what!...we live in the third worst allergy city in the United States.  So, there might actually be something to this whole gluten-free and dairy-free thing.  I'm sold.

We have been cooking up a completely new dinner menu lately.  One of the recipes I really enjoyed was this fried chicken we created last week.  I hope you like it, too!

Giveaway-$20 Amazon Gift Card

Recently, the Creative Bubble's Facebook page made it to 1,000 likes (with a big thanks to Todd Starnes!)  To celebrate, I decided to have a giveaway.  I love giveaways!  Hosting them is so much fun. 

I debated giving away several different books, but wasn't sure who would want to read the same things as I do, SO I am giving away a $20 Amazon gift card instead!  This way you can choose which book (or non-book item) YOU like.  :)

Citrus Vinegar Cleaner

Vinegar is great for cleaning without the harmful side effects that go along with using harsh cleaning products.  There are so many uses for it that you'd probably never even think of!

One of my favorite things to use distilled vinegar for is upholstery cleaning .  I like to spray it all over the furniture every now and then to kill bacteria, BUT it stinks.  It literally stinks.  Here is a little trick to make your vinegar cleaner smell like citrus instead of straight vinegar.
