Blue Cheese and Chive Biscuits

Blue Cheese Biscuits1

For the longest time I never attempted to make biscuits...I am not sure why, other than I probably thought they were too time consuming and difficult.  Plus, I am a sucker for a crusty rustic french loaf.  But then I noticed lots of enticing biscuit recipes popping up, and upon closer examination, I realized they really aren't difficult.  Not difficult at all.  Of course I had to try these, because I am also a sucker for anything involving blue cheese.  Load it on whatever, and I will eat it.  These biscuits looked particularly delicious so I gave them a whirl. … [Read more...]

Cheesy Artichoke Bread

I decided to make this bread one day, based on everyone's favorite Spinach and Artichoke Dip.  I didn't have any spinach on hand, and I thought that since this 'dip' would be on top of the bread already, having both spinach and artichoke might make it too heavy.  Just artichokes would do.  This bread is the perfect snack for gameday parties, potlucks, or just to eat on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  It's indulgent and super satisfying.  I lightened it up a bit, however I still wouldn't call this healthy, by using neufchâtel cheese instead of full fat cream … [Read more...]

Domestic Superhero.com!

Finally, I have taken the plunge and moved my blog off or wordpress, to a self hosted website.  I have been debating this move for a long time, and it seemed very intimidating and scary!  It was somewhat difficult for me, but I am in the works of having a custom site built and hopefully in no time the final Domestic Superhero site will be done.  For now, there may be a few quirks and hiccups here and there, but please bare with me! Also, some of my followers and subscribers have been lost in the transition, so do me a favor and sign up to the left with your email to … [Read more...]

DIY Tufted Ikat Ottoman from Upcycled Pallet with Tutorial

ottoman93

If you are on Pinterest, it's likely you have seen lots of various pallet projects.  Pallets are wooden squares that are used as bases to ship items.  They are usually reused or discarded, depending on the condition of the pallet. For months I have been keeping an eye out for discarded pallets, so I would be able to make one of these fabulous upcycling projects I have seen over and over again.  Usually whenever I spot one that is being thrown away, it is in shambles and in no condition to upcycle.  Then, one day coming out of Kroger I noticed this pallet by the … [Read more...]

Spicy Eggplant and Tofu

I saw this recipe last week in Real Simple Magazine and knew I had to make is ASAP.  I took a quick picture on my phone, to remind me to search for the recipe online later (how handy!), and then added it to my Menu folder on Pinterest for this week!  This is the kind of recipe where you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry, and most likely just have to pick up the produce.  If you like Chinese food (but don't like all the calories), then this is the recipe for you!  It was so flavorful and had the perfect amount of spice.  If you are serving … [Read more...]

DIY Growth Chart Ruler

A growth chart ruler?!?! I was so excited when I saw this creative idea on pinterest (follow me for other great ideas)!  This way, we can move the ruler whenever we want, take it with us if we ever move, and have a cool memory keepsake of Austin growing up.  Since he isn't even two yet, I thought this was the perfect time to make this (and maybe I will go back and mark his old heights from milestone doctor appointments...).  I followed the instructions on That Village House, and this was pretty simple to make.  Apparently the people over at That Village House got the idea from 517 Creations, … [Read more...]
