From POSITIVELY >> "Let’s face it, dog treats can get pretty expensive and many of us (myself included) have dogs that deal with sensitivities or allergies to certain foods.
I began making homemade dog treats a couple years ago; and while I’m a big fan of making treats from scratch, I’m not a big fan of slaving over complicated recipes. All of the recipes you’ll find below are simple, grain-free and easily modified!
It’s almost as if our pups realize when I’m making a treat for them versus myself – they’ll be patiently eyeing me from start to finish! Plus, it’s a fun activity and once you have a couple base recipes, you can start modifying and creating your own version of treats.
This first idea is the perfect treat for a hot day – and who knows, your pup might even share this one with you!"
From Oh Simply >> "When you bring a pile of groceries home your first instinct is always to get the perishable items to the fridge as quickly as you can. However, despite popular belief, there are some food times that you should never store in the refrigerator. Refrigeration goes a long way towards preserving food but for some foods refrigeration can actually lessen the flavor, change the texture, and occasionally even cause the food to spoil at a faster rate. Here are some of the items that you should never refrigerate."

From Homedit >> "You know it’s fall when you start thinking about hanging a wreath on your front door. But don’t go to the wreath store just yet. This year, how about you craft the wreath yourself? With so many beautiful, lovely and interesting ideas and variations you can try, it would be a shame to settle for something generic? And in case you’re lacking ideas, we’ve prepared a few you should definitely take a look at."
BuzzFeed Life >> "A dutch oven is a large cast-iron or ceramic pot that can be used on the stovetop or in the oven. It’s also one of the most useful items you can have in your kitchen."

From The Kitchn >> "To some, a rice cooker might seem like a uni-tasker, which is not necessarily a bad thing if you eat a lot of rice. But it can also serve many other purposes, whether you're stuck in a kitchen-less studio, need an extra "burner," or just want the convenience of making dishes with minimal supervision. Read on for five good uses for a rice cooker, and share your own experiences in the comments!"
From Livingino >> "Looking at home decoration websites and magazines can be mighty depressing if you don’t have a lot of funds to invest in your home. Many fantastic looking upgrades require a lot of cash either because the project is so big (like replacing the flooring in your kitchen) or because the awesome look is achieved with designer brands."

From Livingino >> "So IKEA may still be more fashionable than Wal-mart, but it doesn’t exactly offer the best quality or expensive-looking items. Most things from IKEA are pretty identifiable as IKEA, and not in a particularly good way. However, many things from IKEA are fairly easy to upgrade and usually won’t cost you a lot more in the bargain."

Zen Habits >> "Confession time: I’m a cheapskate. Some would say frugal, which sounds much more positive, but in reality I can be a real cheapskate. I am fairly frugal (though not always), but sometimes I take it too far: I have T-shirts with holes in them, I never buy new clothes, we’re shopping for a new couch because our current one has holes in it, and I ran my current pair of running shoes until the soles fell off. However, I have gradually learned to be frugal in many ways that I would recommend to others. I don’t think you should have holes in your couch, and you should definitely replace your running shoes more often than I do, but there are many ways to cut back on spending and live a more frugal lifestyle."
From The Kitchn >>"I think we can all agree — there are few things more wonderful in this life than a giant bowl of pasta for dinner. And in these cold and drizzly days of winter, that's basically all we want. Let's just embrace that.
But let's also embrace all those other tried-and-true Italian comfort foods — like crispy polenta cakes topped with greens and beans, a white pizza with wilted spinach and mozzarella, and a creamy risotto made with barley. Let's also embrace our vegetables, because no matter your diet, veggies are pretty awesome. All the more reason to fill that bowl up and dig in."
From Awesome Inventions >> "You already use toothpaste at least twice a day, every day (or we hope you do, anyway!), but did you know that it can be used for more than just cleaning your teeth? There are numerous ways that toothpaste can be utilized around the house, for cleaning tasks and more. It's amazing how many different types of household products you could get rid of, just by using toothpaste in their stead. So, grab that tube and get ready to tackle some chores!"
From The Kitchn >> "Have you made an airy pavlova or meringue lately? Or did the health nut in your family abscond with all the egg whites for his breakfast scramble, leaving you with an excess of egg yolks?"

From Happy Money Saver >> "Who’s ready to cook all day long for a month’s worth of freezer meals? When you tell your family you’re having frozen dinner do they run the other way and only the dog looks happy? Maybe it’s time to introduce them and yourself to homemade Freezer meals. Cooking a month of meals for the freezer all in one day makes for a stress-free and often quick meal time for busy families."
From What Vegan Kids Eat >> "Veganism is a strict type of vegetarianism that excludes meat and all animal products. Vegans do not eat meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, or any foods containing them. A vegan diet relies on plant-based foods including fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and seeds."
From Apartment Geeks >> "The cost of living in an urban city means we often have less space to play with than our suburban friends. Thankfully designers have found awesome ways to make better use of the space we have. Check out the 15 examples to make sure that you don’t waste any space in your apartment."
