BLT Salad with Homemade Avocado Vinaigrette

This BLT salad is a twist on the classic sandwich, made into a super filling and delicious meal! Bacon, kale, spring mix, and tomatoes make up the BLT, add some cheese and dressing to make it complete. This recipe is seriously one of my favorite salads because it is filling, yummy, and it has bacon. Bacon makes everything better, right?!? You will need to cook the bacon in this recipe, so if you want to use up that bacon grease check out this recipe for scallops and bacon cream sauce. Such a great way to use up the grease instead of just tossing it. You can even just make the bacon cream sauce which I enjoy eating over pasta! I like to make a homemade…

Tips to Keep Flowers Fresh in Winter

My house has been a little less exciting and fresh lately because I had been using fake flowers for quite awhile. Although I am able to keep flowers fresh in the spring and summer, flowers are just way harder to care for in the winter! I was lucky enough to talk to the florist in my local grocery store lately and he gave me a new tip that works so well. I just had to share it, because I never would have thought of it, plus some other tips that help my flowers last long. Usually I can have my flowers last anywhere from two to three weeks! Yes, even in the winter!   1. Use the Flower Food! I…

One Pan Scallops and Bacon Cream Sauce

Cooking using only one pan is probably one of my favorite ways of cooking. Less dishes is always better, especially when the meal turns out as good as this one! These scallops seared in bacon grease and smothered in a bacon cream sauce are every seafood lovers dream come true! These little bites of heaven are seriously so good, I was sad that I only got to eat four. The good news is I had ton of bacon cream sauce left over, so I plan to use it on some pasta. I have a feeling it is going to be just as good in that dish! In addition, since none of strips of bacon are actually in the sauce, I like…

Valentine’s Day Decorating Using DIYs

It’s February in two days (how!?) and Valentine’s Day is only 15 days away (double how!?). I love changing up my decor with every season. I tend to get bored of the way my TV stand looks after about a month and am pretty much constantly changing it. So I got to decorating my living room area for the holiday using the paper crafts I shared last week. Decor Here’s yet another post showcasing my TV stand! It is the only real space I feel I have to decorate in my little apartment, so it definitely gets the most attention in these decor posts. Anyways, all of the paper crafts are from last week’s blog post! Then that one little pink jar with…

Avocado Toast – Valentine’s Day Inspired

My final post in this breakfast series just wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t share my simple avocado toast recipe! But with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I decided to make it a little more cute and fun :). So I made my same basic recipe, got a heart cookie cutter involved, and viola! Look at these dang cute little hearts! This recipe is totally adaptable too to however you may prefer your avocado toast. Sometimes I add tomatoes or cheese to mine as well, but this is always my starting point. Hate avocado? No problem! You can just do the toast and egg portion and it will still be super cute for Valentine’s Day morning! Oh and of course…
