I thought I would share a few tips on oven cleaning. I know that most ovens these days are self cleaning ovens, but I hate using them. Every time I do...it doesn't come out as clean and shiny as using oven cleaner. I like using fume free Easy off oven cleaner...safe for self cleaning ovens. Here are a few easy steps:
- Spray Oven and racks. Close Oven and let sit. (I like to let it sit for a few hours)
- Take racks out and wash with SOS pads. Rinse, Dry.
- Take a tile and glass scraper (This is a razor blade...found in paint section at department stores) and scrape the entire bottom of oven and the oven door. (Make sure it is a new razor blade) THIS STEP IS A LIFE SAVER!
- Wash sides of oven with SOS pad
- Wipe out with old rag or paper towels.
- Shine oven with glass cleaner and paper towels
Another tip: You can put your racks in a large heavy garbage sack and pour ammonia in the bag. Close the bag up tight and let sit several hours. Take the racks out and rinse. All the black stuff will just fall right off. CAUTION: The ammonia is very strong. So be careful when taking the racks out.
The Before Picture:

I hope this will teach them how to act during an interview so they can get a well paying job that they enjoy.

Meet Lexi's goldfish "Sparkle" (on left), and Kaylee's goldfish "Fishy" (on Right). I know you are just so impressed with the names they came up with.Jordan chose a female guppy and named her "Mrs. Speedy". She is really speedy.

I have a few people to thank. First of all, my brilliant cousin Heather. If it wasn't for her I would have never found out about the drawing in the first place. Secondly, Anne Bradshaw, for hosting the drawing. And Thirdly, Lee Ann Setzer, the author of the book who is giving it away. I'll stop there since it's starting to sound like I won the Emmy's or something. :) (But I am really excited that I won something)

Green scrambled eggs, a green drink, and green buttered toast. I had to convince the girls that it tasted exactly the same as it does when it is not colored. I joined in on the fun too:
I often make a fruit smoothie for breakfast and today I just added a drop or two of food coloring. Next to the smoothie you'll notice green butter, green mayonnaise, and army green peanut butter. I thought I would extend the food fun to the kids' lunches today. Happy St. Patricks Day!
Have you done anything fun to celebrate the holiday?
