Good morning friends!

We hope you are all having an awesome week!

You may remember me telling you last week how much I love the satisfaction of DIY, but want some of the unnecessary steps skipped or done for me.  For example… I love building a piece of furniture, BUT I will always have the hardware store rip my big sheets of wood for me.  It’s not worth my time or hassle to do it myself, and my piece of furniture is still 100% my own work!

That’s exactly how we run our homes and kitchens.  We are constantly searching for products, tips and tricks that save us a ton of time and unnecessary work!  That’s why we are so excited to be a finalist in the Reynolds Real Moms contest.  We aren’t chefs or foodies, but we are 2 mommies who love running our kitchens efficiently and making our families food that we made ourselves without spending hours doing it!

So this is where you guys come in!

We know many of you trust us to share our tips on crafting, painting and building.  We hope you will show them that you trust us to share time and money saving tips from our kitchens as well!  Ash and I need your votes!  Last week we shared the contest with you.  We have 4 Wednesdays left!  You can only vote on Wednesdays and only 1 vote per person!

Here we are in Ashley’s kitchen sharing our latest video tip with you on how we use Reynolds oven bags to create a full yummy meal!  This really is a great recipe, and it’s quick and simple as well!  You can also click the photo below to take you there!
