I’ve read about most of the rumors and anticipate it will be relatively […]

Pot n’ Pan Rack

After shopping on Amazon not looking for what I wanted, I stumbled upon Life Currents’ pot rack. Inspired what the couple did, I set off to Home Depot to make my own to mount under my unfinished cabinets. Instead of the 1 1/2″ malleable iron they used, I opted for the 1/2″ pipe. – 2 […]

The rooster had to […]

Lemon Salmon with Quinoa

As of late, my home meals have been visually bland and nothing extravagant. Chicken, beef tossed in with quinoa or couscous. It’s easy, and satisfying. However, I’ve been trying to incorporate more fish in my diet. I never was a seafood person, but salmon seems to hit the spot without an issue. I prepared this […]
