Crock Pot Chicken Burritos

Using the Crock Pot is my new favorite kitchen appliance.  Until I borrowed my Mother’s Crock Pot, I couldn’t make anything in it without burning dinner.  Eric actually banned me from ever using it.  And then I used hers and my entire world changed.  This is by far my favorite recipe, I have to resist from making it every week!

These burritos are incredibly easy to make, it takes 5 mins to dump everything in before work and then its ready when you get home 8 hours later.  What is even better is that even though you have to shred it, if you just stir the crock pot, it all falls apart!  To me, this is like eating out.  I think I might spend more time cleaning the crock pot than I do getting dinner together!

Easy DIY Herb Garden

It is spring time!  If you are in Northeast Ohio it may not seem like spring yet but its coming.  Time to fix up the garden and plant those flowers outside!  Or if you are like me and you know nothing about gardening, its time to pretend like you know all about it. If so this is the perfect fake it until you make it herb garden!
How to make your own herb garden
When Eric and I were doing the typical last minute gift search, we were walking through Michaels and I saw this box.  When I saw it, I just knew that I should turn it into a herb garden!  I am officially obsessed with chalk boards too.  I may be a few years late to the game but everything I do I want to be a chalkboard!

This herb garden is so easy to make and it looks so cute.  Perfect for your outdoor table’s center piece while growing your fresh herbs.  The herbs in this garden are parsley, basil and cilantro.  I don’t know if you use those regularly but I am sure you can find a recipe just for your fresh herbs!
So without further ado, here is how to make your own herb garden!


  • Box of your choice
  • Drill
  • Your favorite herbs
  • Dirt


  1. Drill a hole or two in the bottom of your box.  The holes are so the water can drain out if it rains.
  2. Put a layer of dirt on the bottom
  3. Place herbs in the box
  4. Fill in around the herbs and fill up the remainder of the box with herbs.
  5. Water your brand new herb garden!

Wrap Up

We gave this adorable herb garden to my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day.  I just hope it doesn’t turn out that she has a brown thumb because I hope to have dinner at her house made with these herbs!  I think it was a pretty successfully gift if I do say so myself.

DIY Wedding Favors

Hi Everyone,

I want to share the favors I made for our wedding!  They took some time because I made 200 favors and anything you do 200 times takes awhile!

Our favors were chocolate Xs and Os where each guest got 1 X and 1 O.  Whether or not people knew I made the favors, it was nice knowing that I personally made them.  The cherry on top is that they were $.50 a favor!

I bought several chocolate molds of each letter so that making them would go faster!

If you would like to buy the same molds I did, here are the links:

“X” Chocolate Candy Mold
“O” Chocolate Candy Mold

To make them, melt chocolate and fill the molds.  Let them cool in the refrigerator.
We bagged one of each letter and attached a label with a bow that said “Hugs and Kisses From the Mr. and Mrs.”  Eric made the tags himself and you are more than welcome to download them and use them yourself!
They turned out really cute and our guests really liked them!
The favors were something simple but a nice personal touch from the bride and groom!
What were your favors for your wedding or what are you planning?
Happy Crafting!
