Mom’s Dream Kitchen Makeover

(Sponsored) This post is sponsored by Sears. All opinions are my own.When I was growing up, I was an only child. Well, I have half siblings, but, unfortunately, we didn't become close until I was an adult. So, when I got married, I knew I wanted a large family. Three to four kids was what I dreamed of. The overachiever that I am had FIVE kids.I have a very modest sized kitchen. I don't know the exact square footage, but I will say that when I'm cooking dinner I would prefer for the kids to NOT be in the kitchen. If one of the kids is getting a drink from the refrigerator and I need to grab the butter, they're in my way. If one of the kids is coming inside from playing outside and needs to wash their hands and I need to rinse the veggies, they're in my way. You can only imagine … [Read more...]

Otherwise, you'll have a line at the microwave for everyone to warm their plate. I took for granted, as a kid, how Grandma pulled this seemingly impossible feat off each year. Now, I wish I could ask her just how she managed this miraculous task.While I know we would all love to run out and purchase a brand new bundle of beautiful kitchen appliances, I also know this just isn't in all of our budgets this time of year. What we all can do is take great care of the kitchen appliances we currently have. Did … [Read more...]

In the Kitchen with Sears Home Appliances and Service

(Sponsored)  This is a sponsored post on behalf of Sears Home Appliances.  All opinions are our own. There comes a time in every homeowner's life when she must buy new appliances. I know, the whole thought of replacing an appliance that has essentially become your best kitchen friend can seem daunting. The refrigerator?
