Since starting a new blog, I have spent hours scouring the web for any and all tips I could find. There are so many things to learn. WordPress has made many things very easy and somethings require a little more research. Basically, for me, it seems to come down to knowing the right search term to stumble onto the exact information I’m looking for. I decided that when I found the perfect info and implemented it on my blog that I would pass it on to other bloggers who might need some assistance. I figured if I was searching for this info then someone else out there might be too. In this post I will explain how to add an embedded recipe to your WordPress.com blog using shortcode. Using this shortcode will help set your recipe apart from the rest of your blog post.
If you are like me and don’t have a blog theme meant for just straight up recipes but still would like to be able to add a printable recipe, then you’ve come to the right place. It is really easy to do and I’ll give you step by step instructions. Continue reading

(I’m currently working on redoing a wicker couch and can take a little help from a quick can of cinnamon rolls.) Since my mom is so creative and a plain old can of cinnamon rolls was just too boring, it’s time to think outside the box! I asked if my mom could come up with a fun way to cook cinnamon rolls. Something a little more creative than just placing on the pan and baking. Immediately we both spouted off two totally different ideas. Today in honor of my mom’s visit over the weekend, I want to share her creative twist on a can of cinnamon rolls. Continue reading
Trying to eat lean is no new concept to me. It’s definitely a battle of the wills. Sometimes that skinny girl stuck inside me comes knocking at my brain just begging for a chance. But most of the time, the chubby girl wins out in the end. In this particular case though, the skinny girl wants to come out and play. She might not stick around long but while she’s here I figure I better post what’s she’s cooking…Greek Grilled Chicken Pitas!
