    Thanks for taking time to answer these questions. I’ve pinned all the recipes and agree they are ones that I’d have the stuff on hand most of the time!

    • I hope you love them! Recipes can be so subjective, but I think these are good ones. :)

    Just freeze your ginger root! Totally what I do, or I would never have it on hand. Take it out of the freezer, break off a small chunk, pop it in the microwave to soften a bit, then you can peel and shred/mince it.

    • I’ve heard this before, about freezing it, but never about microwaving it. The freezing part was the hangup for me, and I’ve ground it (on a microplane) frozen before and I thought it might break my microplane. Definitely going to buy a few ginger roots next time I’m at the store. The last one I bought actually got moldy on me a few days after I bought it. I went into the fridge and it was coated in a fine, fuzzy mold. I’ve NEVER had that happen to me so quickly before! Must have been at the grocery store for a while before I bought it!

  • I am SO glad that you are enjoying Jewels Star! I just keep thinking, if I can ‘just’ get past this level…ooh that one was easy, maybe I should try the next one! :)

    Can’t wait to check out your other android apps!

    • Becky, there are days when I curse your name! Actually, it’s more like nights. Playing Jewels Star is one of my go-to “wind down” activities at night while I watch TV and I just can’t move on to the next level until I get THREE STARS on the one I’m on. There have been times where I’ve sat up for 2 hours past bedtime trying to get 3 stars on a level. I love these types of games, though. When they added World 3 in the last update I squealed a little. I was afraid the whole thing would come to an end after World 2. Scary.

    I just started blogging my scrapbooking. (Just got accepted to a creative team, yay!) I’m struggling a bit with balancing privacy and visibility. Up to now my scrapbook layouts pretty much just went up on Facebook for my friends & family to see. But now that I have a blog and a brand new Twitter account I’m a little freaked out. Real name here, pics of family there, and potentially crazy people around every turn! How do you manage it?

    • I’ll share my thoughts and then make this an “everybody in” question next week to see how other people tackle it, too. It’s a good topic to bring up!

  • Thank you! I was gonna recommend freezing the ginger root too (though I peel it first).
    Breakfast for dinner is a favorite around here too—though we also have it as breakfast/brunch on the weekend.
    I’ve been watching Pioneer Woman episodes while up late with our new puppy…so my family is wondering what’s up with all the heavy cream in almost every recipe lately:)
    I just got a green smoothie recipe that calls for 1 Tbsp of pb, 1 sliced frozen banana, 1 cup of milk/kefir/almond milk (whatever you prefer), 1/2 cup of greek yogurt and 4 cups of spinach. Since you love pb, I thought you might enjoy this quick healthy snack/lunch.

    • Heavy cream is a fantastic thing. We always have it on hand. The Pioneer Woman and I are on the same page when it comes to heavy cream and butter.

  • Poultry seasoning? Is there a hack for that?

    Thanks for posting the recipes; I was wondering what they were too as I was listening to The Digi Show. And, btw, I was singing Lionel Richie in my head 5 minutes after reading this post! LOL :)

  • Thanks for this awesome post! I’m getting my new android phone all set up and enjoyed your app recommendations. Yay!

    I have had one of the worst days at work EVER (yelling and crying at my manager), feeling like the gum stuck on the bottom of someone’s shoe. I listen to the Digi Show, as I do everyday, and was listening to your Pinterest show. As the show is wrapping up, and you are all discussing the difference of vs, and you threw in the dog on dog action comment. Thank you for being the wacked out ray of sunshine, on an otherwise dreery day!!! I so need that!

  • I ventured over here after listening to the Digi Show (new listener) and found your list of four on-hand-every-day recipes after you mentioned this blog post in one of the episodes… We just tried the spaghetti with tomatoes and artichokes tonight. OH WOW. Thank you so much for posting these– I’m really looking forward to trying the rest!

    P.S. Love your bio. Totally cracked me up. That’s the best kind of bio :)
