Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring. In fact, now that I have a few recipes under my belt, I love eating healthy. My latest recipe is a delicious Garlic Chicken and Kale Pasta which can be eaten cold or hot.

 The first thing I did was cook the garlic in extra virgin olive oil until opaque. While that cooked a brought a pot of salted water to a boil. Then I added the pasta and kale and cooked for nine minutes until the noodles and kale were tender.

I then added the noodles, kale and chopped chicken to the pan. Next, I thoroughly mixed the pasta, kale, garlic and chicken together.
 At the very end, I decided to add some black beans. I used ones from a can so no additional cooking was required. 

I enjoyed this dish immediately while hot, but I also ate it cold tossed with a little bit of balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

This dish was so delicious and is perfect for meal planning. I'll show you soon how, I use the dish in my weekly meal plan.

How to Personalize Your Keys | Blinged Out Key Tutorial

posted by Saidah Washington on


I love to personalize my possessions and make them as feminine as possible. When I'm surrounded by feminine dainty things it makes me feel good.

When I was younger, I was the one with the blinged out key chains and would keep a new lanyard creation dangling from my key ring. 

I want to jazz my key ring up just like the old days and I knew just the way to do it.

You'll need:

Start by cleaning your keys.
Next, you'll want to bend your bob pins to create a 'v' shape. Then tape them to a widow or table ledge. This will be where you hang your keys while they dry.

Next, tape off the section of the key where you want to paint. 
Make sure to extend the tape around the front and the back of your key.
Now apply the first coat of paint to both sides of the key.

Now, place your key on the bob pin.

If you're painting multiple keys, simply repeat the process.
Once both keys were semi dry, I went back over them with a second coat of nail polish and allowed them to fully dry.

I used a blow dryer set on 'cool' to speed up the drying process. Once the second coat of nail polish was dry, I started to add designs to my keys.
I used my dotting tool to add dots and I went over one of my keys with silver glitter nail polish. After the design layer of nail polish dried, I added a coat of clear nail polish.
I created a different design for each of my keys and I just love the way they turned out.

Top Money Making Surveys for April

Taking surveys to earn extra income is a proven method for those of you looking to make an extra $50 to $200 a month or more.

The need for a little extra money is what led me to taking surveys back in 2008. When I learned that I could make money from home, I was sold. I've been asked numerous times “can you really make money taking surveys?“ and the answer is...YES!!

How much money you earn taking surveys depends on you, but if you set up a plan for tracking your survey income you can expect to make anywhere from $50 - $200 or more. 
I know because I've done it. In order to earn the $50 - $200, you'll need to be a member of as many legitimate survey companies as you can.

Having this variety ensures that you only devote your time to the highest paying survey offers.

Growing Organic Beans and Tomatoes

Earlier this summer I tried my hand at growing tomatoes and beans from seeds. I've grown vegetables before, but not in a few years.

There's something fascinating and fulfilling about harvesting produce from your own backyard. Everything seems to taste better and I feel better about eating it since I know where it was grown and in what type of environment. 
 Growing fruits and vegetables is not as easy at it looks on Pinterest, easpecially for a lazy gardener like myself.
 My gardening style is more of a plant it and forget it style. I allow my gardens grow wild and they're only watered when it rains.
So far it's worked for me and soon I'll be harvesting some tomatoes and peas. 

I have some delcious recipes planned with the vegatables in my garden which I'll share over the next few weeks.
