Home Sweet Home!!! I am a true homebody and when people say how do you have the time to cook and do all you do, its because I spend most of my day at home. As some of you already know, our 4th son, Conor has autism. He loves being home as it’s his biggest comfort so therefore I have become just like Conor…I love being home…and being with him of course!

At home I can do almost anything I need to….cook, clean, organize, shop, and decorate! All of my favorite things!!!

Organizing and decoratiing are 2 of my other great loves. My friends and family tend to make fun of me when it comes to cleanliness and organizing, but it’s because they love me I know, lol!!! Shoes off at the door in this house!!!…..sorry I am not sorry! And if you open any cabinet, you might be shocked to find jars, canisters & bins labeled. I crave organization and am happiest when all the stars are aligned. It also helps Conor because he needs organization and is also happiest when his things are aligned or should I say “lined up”. I must proudly say my organization obsession has also translated to my 3 big boys…just not my biggest boy (husband Larry) because as he says, he has me to keep him organized!!! Oy! I love decorating and have done so to every inch of our house and of course will continue to decorate and redecorate. Of course I will be sharing with all of you my great finds for any home!!

    Posted on May 31 by Joy in Must Haves.

    You are probably thinking, why is she posting candy as “must have” when all of her recipes profess healthful eating and healthy alternative recipes! Well….everyone has their vices and if this is the worst of it, then blah, blah, blah! YOLO! FYI…I have not had a cup of coffee in 3+ years, not because I […]

  • Chia Seeds

    Posted on April 7 by Joy in Must Haves.

    I love the fact that Chia Seeds are so diverse and healthy at the same time! They add a great texture to so many food, both sweet and savory! Adding a tablespoon of chia to your daily diet delivers 3g of omega-3 ALA and 6g of dietary fibre. Chia is also a fantastic source of vegetarian […]

    I know that I shouldn’t say I am obsessed with cleaning gloves, but I must admit I am!!! How cute are these gloves by “BW” (Boston Warehouses). The only reason I wear gloves when doing dishes is I have the super dry skin and water is my enemy! Aside from being adorable, these gloves fit perfectly, are […]

  • My New Favorite Kitchen Toy – “The Fine Life” Oil Mister

    Posted on March 16 by Joy in Must Haves.

    There are so many oil misters available but half the time they start out great and then begin leaking or just mist unevenly! This oil mister by The Fine Life is the best there is! It is sold on Amazon, a little pricey, but definitely worth it (I promise)! It sprays evenly and does not clog or […]
