Aloha Hawaiian Chicken!!

Two words: DELISH and YUM!!!!

The fact that you literally can dump in the ingredients and completely walk away to only return several hours later to a restaurant quality main dish makes this recipe additionally amazing!  Add a couple of jalepenos with the green pepper layer if you want to add some 'kick.'

Tooling Around with Toolboxes

Hello. I am Robin Z and I collect vintage, handmade, wooden toolboxes. But only the really-really cool ones. Ones that have personality - either in color, shape, or condition. Ones that speak to me. Ones that are not only super-awesome to look at - but also super-awesome to use for. . . well. . . whatever the heck I come up with.

Take this big ol' randomly painted, super-duper, extra-magnificent toolbox

It's All In The Egg Muffin Quiche

Simplest, most versatile, perfect-for-later recipe *ever*!!!

It starts in a standard muffin pan - and ends with YUM.

This recipe hooked me on Facebook when I first saw it. But, me being me, I tweaked it, modified it ever so slightly, and measured out the ingredients to make it easier for you. It's a great one to use up whatever you have on hand - the only ingredient *required* is eggs. And you can serve it for any meal - or even as snacks in between when you're on the go.

Upcycling, Recycling, & Buttoning Up a Spray Painting Project

I LOVE re-purposing found objects to make them not only useful - but beautiful and fun! And I *love*  containers with personality - it's a 'puzzle' to me to figure out how to fit 'stuff' into these interesting containers in unusual (and utilitarian) ways, then decorate with them.
