When Hubs filled a REALLY rustic oak wood top with almost more wood filler than wood, I knew I’d have to come up with a solution on how to make wood filler look like wood grain. If you don’t want to hide all the rustic goodness of real wood, then stick around for how it looks now. Continue reading
We’ve got another Belgian waffle recipe perfect for a weekend morning! These Belgian waffles are not unlike the homemade belgian waffles we posted last year. However, this time we’re aiming for the crisp factor.

Before you run out to needlessly to buy another printer, try our fix on how to clean printer heads first! Less landfill = a happier planet and, like our motto says, good planets are hard to find!
The handiest tool in our craft arsenal is actually our home printer; it is indispensable. But over the last few days it has been printing badly at first and then printing completely blank pages. Not a good thing when you need print outs for your next upcyled craft project!
With so many people working from home now, it’s more important than ever to have a printer in good working order. Continue reading
Fall off the bone tender ribs are easy to achieve with baked ribs cooked low and slow. But if you’re not going to slather them in sauce and barbecue them afterwards, then you need a flavourful rub. And this dry rub hits the mark.
Green onions and eggs the way my grandmother made it is a technique I’ve never found on the internet. Sure, you can throw green onions into an omelette or scrambled eggs. But this isn’t that by a long shot! Surprisingly, the eggs in this recipe are double cooked!
