Cooking with fresh herbs can be pretty pricey, but you might feel intimidated by the idea of growing your own. There are lots of herbs that are actually pretty easy to keep alive, even if you’re just planting them in your kitchen window! It’s all about knowing what to grow and how to care for it.

St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Drink

Make a St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Drink

So much St. Patrick’s Day fun centers around shamrocks and the color green, and I love that this festive drink celebrates the whole rainbow! Modern Parents Messy Kids shared this fruit-filled St. Patrick’s Day treat, and I can’t wait until my son is big enough to drink one of these. She suggests using juice or soda, but you can also use plain seltzer if you’re trying to avoid sugary drinks with your kids. The fruit will infuse the water with plenty of flavor. Either way, what a fun, healthy way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kids!

Upcycled Cat Hammock

Make a Cat Hammock from an Old Towel

Don’t these cats look cozy in their little hammocks? You can sew these up for the cats in your life or make them to donate to your local animal rescue! Squidoo user (Squidooer?) Pam Irie opted for the latter, and she shares her detailed tutorial in case you want to do the same thing! I love how these cat hammocks give your kitty an elevated place to sleep. I don’t know about your cats, but mine prefer being up high, so they can survey their kingdom.

10 Kid-Friendly Vegetable Recipes

Getting kids to eat their veggies can be a little bit tricky, can’t it? My 11-month-old just dove headfirst into a phase where anything green on his tray that’s not avocado goes straight onto the floor. Maddening!

Magnetic Chalkboard Spice Rack

Make a Magnetic, Chalkboard Spice Rack

Kristi at Addicted 2 Decorating shared a tutorial for making a magnetic chalkboard spice rack, and frankly it’s genius. The spices go in small glass jars with magnets on the lids, so you can pull them down and stash them easily. The chalkboard means you can label what’s what and change things up as you replace the spices in your stash. Love it!
