Mexican Corn Hash



Ok, this picture can go down as horrible, but sad to say it was the best one I got of this recipe.  The recipe that will also be added to the "ugly deliciousness" recipes.  It doesn't look pretty but it's AMAZING!  What was actually an accident as I was trying to make some Mexican Corn Hash turned out to be a wonderful accident! We put some in burritos and it kicked them up,  and I liked it just as a side dish with my burrito.  Here's the recipe:

Beauty & the Geek Webpage Design


Beauty & the Geek Webpage Design is now taking on clients! This year my husband isn't going to be teaching as we prepare for a new adventure that I'll tell you about as it gets closer.  Meanwhile I've started doing webpage design part-time again to supplement our income while we wait on the next steps to take.  I've designed webpages for about 18 years along with lots of other graphic design stuff so needless to say I can pretty much make about anything.

Swig Cookies are Swigalicious!


You may have noticed a trend on Pinterest lately for these cookies called "Swig" cookies.  They originated in Utah and are AMAZING! Ok, they're Swigalicious! I found this site that had a few of the different recipes you can make such as peanut butter, chocolate, and classic.

Awesome week 30


It's week 30 of our 52 weeks of Awesome! Wow, ok I know we're over half way but being on week 30 of 52- that's only 22 weeks to go!  It feels like a pregnancy count down, although I am SO glad pregnancy is only 40 weeks and not 52!
If you started at the first of the year you'll be getting close to the end of July this week- Summer is almost over! Keep up the momentum!

Chicken Avocado Burritos


In searching for some dinner recipe inspiration I came across this recipe I had pinned awhile back.  Chicken Avocado Burritos..... sounds interesting.  So we tried it out!  And of course I did my own variation of it.  The kids even liked it!  It made plenty so after giving some to our neighbors we still had 6 left over to freeze for a quick meal in the future.

Growth Chart DIY


I've seen these for years and finally made it a priority to make one!  While I was at it I made one for my parents as well. It was surprisingly easy and not as big of a task as I thought it would be. The board was about $8 at Home Depot and since I had some vinyl and my silhouette machine the writing didn't cost me anything.  You could also paint the writing on if you don't have a vinyl machine.  And I already had paint.  So this project cost me $8- SO WORTH IT!

Honey Butter


One of the things I miss most often in Utah is this amazing Honey Butter sauce!!!  You can use it on biscuits, waffles, and lots of other things but my favorite is on top of a fresh hot scone (or fry bread is what some people call it)  So our last trip to Utah I made a point to buy a few of them to bring home. Needless to say we had scones for dinner last night in celebration!

Picture frame gift


My niece got married recently and I wanted to give her something special for her bridal shower gift.  Since we were already painting jars for her centerpieces (see this post) we had the paint of the colors she would be using in her house after the wedding- perfect!
