Mom’s Amazing Tartar Sauce Recipe.

Tartar sauce recipeSome things you take for granted. Today While making fish sticks for my daughter, I realized it was my moms home made tarter sauce that I have taken for granted.  Many recipes get too fancy with it, the store bought stuff just isn’t right and and sometimes you just need the comfort of home made. Here is the quick easy recipe, as I remember it.

 

Mom’s Amazing Tarter Sauce Recipe- 

Time- less than 5 min.

Supplies needed- bowl, spoon, knife and cutting board

Ingredients- mayonnaise, pickles & lemon juice

1 cup mayo

(I love miracle whip on sandwiches but it just doesn’t work for this. The real stuff tastes best)

1-2 Dill pickles sliced and diced

(I like alot! Some people say they prefer sweet. Yeah, I don’t know what’s wrong with them either.)

A dash of lemon juice.

 

Mix it all together and voila. Tarter sauce for those fish sticks.

 

Just like this simple recipe, when remodeling a little hands on attention can take you’re kitchen or bath from not quite right to Yummy.  Knowing the recipe to follow is the trick.  I have a great checklist that I use with my clients when we are starting to design their projects.  This checklist will help you create your recipe for success.

How 1 hour can save your kitchen remodel from ruin.

White kitchenMy daughter Cora loves to help me with everything.  This includes the laundry.  Usually, this help involves slinging underwear over her head and running around, knocking over all the stacks of folded clothes. While it is super cute… It is not very productive.

Why is it that this kind of help is easy to find! Is that person helping you with your kitchen remodel not helping you as much as you thought?  Is no one helping you and you have hit the perpetual spin cycle of remodeling, and you’re unsure of how to get out of it? One hour of focused help with Kitchens Unlimited can save your remodel from ruin and get you back to progress.

I ran into a Client over the weekend. They have been working on a kitchen face-lift for the past 6 months or so. They put on new counter-tops, cabinetry was refinished and the last step was selecting back-splash tile and flooring. They had limited time to look due to their very tight, super busy schedule (any of you with kids in competition sports can feel their pain) and were being held up by their inability to select materials.

We ran into each other at one of my favorite tile/flooring stores.  As luck would have it I had a free hour.  In that hour we were able to select their back-splash with appropriate trim needed, draw up a layout, select grout colors and select the perfect flooring. They mentioned had they not run into me they would have spent more than double the time and left still unclear of what to do.

Just one hour of expert advise can get you back on track and make your limited time more productive. If you keep finding yourself spinning unsure of the next step, the right color or materials give us a call. We will get you back to cheering at the game!

Why parenting is the one thing at which I will fail.

You have researched every option and made all of the informed choices, putting you on the path to a healthy happy family.

Until, ….someone pops up and challenges your choices. Making you question something you felt so secure in just 2 minutes before. This very scenario happened to me today.

As many of you may know I have a young daughter. I was reading a post from a mommy blogger who I like to follow. He had a post about the brand of diapers we use. To my surprise, following this post I found tons of comments bashing the diaper brand we have been using.  These comments went on to talk about how it is not the best product for your child, best value, and they are an unethical company.

Wow!  Makes your start to rethink your decision right?!

There is no perfect choice that is always going to be right. So, there is no way to win. I have found this has been  more and more true since becoming a parent. Whether it be breast-feeding, formula feeding, bottle-feeding, pacifiers, diapers, CIO (cry it out), co sleeping or Immunizations, no one agrees on what the proper choices are for you and your child.  This is why I am resound to fail.   Oh and as many of you may know Catholic guilt has nothing on mommy guilt. A friend jokingly told me we are all going to mommy hell.  She might just be right.   I’ll meet you all there.  I’ll bring the wine!

I think this scenario is true in many areas of our life. I wish we as a society could learn to support each other in the decisions we make, No Matter what the decision is. Why can’t we support each other, without bashing others into feeling the same way? I wish we could create a community where we could support and nurture each other not beat each other down.

I strive to provide this unconditional support with my clients. Creating a safe space because no matter your decisions we are here to support you.  If I know that my client made a design decision that is right for them, I no longer talk about other options or my opinion. Why guilt them or make them feel bad about a decision that has been decided or even installed? Continuing to look at options only reopens the thought process and causes the spin of indecision.
