Tips from Our Resident Designer | Spring Cleaning Includes Your Window Blinds....

Spring cleaning includes your window blinds....
If you clean your blinds at least once a week they will look their absolute best. With our busy schedules, we sometime forget until they are yellow, covered in dust or pollen. The good news is you can clean your blinds in a just a few steps.

Blinds are easier to clean with a duster or microfiber cloth. Cleaning your blinds with soap and water can leave them wet, messy and leave streaks. 

Keep your blinds in place to dust them off with a duster. Clean the blinds from top to bottom and use a vacuum to clean up the dust off the floor. You will want to clean the duster off between each window so the dust in not transformed to another window.

Dust the vertical blinds with a duster or brush attachment from your vacuum. Then open the blinds and clean from the top to the bottom on both sides of the vertical blinds.  Once again use the vacuum to clean up the dust off ; ...

Taste of Home | Papa LaRoche Pot Roast

Dad’s Pot Roast

On Sundays every week it was my dad’s turn to cook the family a special meal. He had so many great recipes he cooked and they all stir up wonderful memories. He was a terrific cook and he would often add a twist to classic recipes. One of my favorites that I make often is his pot roast recipe. I always make mine in the crock pot and let it cook on low all day. It smells so good to come home after it has cooked all day and have a yummy supper ready.
The brown sugar and vinegar additions were a surprise to me when I asked about the recipe. I have added a couple of things I like personally and it has become a family favorite.
3 - 4 pound chuck roast
5 medium potatoes - cut in chunks
1 pound of carrots - cut in chunks or baby carrots
1 envelope of dry onion soup mix (like Lipton)
3 teaspoons Better than Bouillon - beef flavor 
3 cups of water
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
