How to Clean a Keurig Machine
I love my coffee. I can't carry on with my morning if I don't have my coffee first thing. In fact, I'm not even fully awake until I comfortably finish my first coffee of the day. Yes, I'm not fully awake even when my kids are jumping on my husband and me in bed at 6 AM. This is also another reason why I seriously need my coffee.
10 Empowering Feminist Novels Every Woman Must Read
As a feminist, we want to possess the strength and mind to take on a world that continues to be dominated by men.

How To Keep Your Babies Cool in the Summer, According to Pediatricians
When my kids were babies, I was always on the hunt for multiple ways to keep them cool in the hot summers. They are super sensitive to the sun and they'll instantly get red if they aren't coated in sunscreen.

Even with the sunscreen on, they were still irritated and felt bothered whenever they spent around 30 minutes outside.
Top Rated Air Fryers & Recipes to Use Them With
What is an air fryer? Air fryers are one of the best appliances you can have in your kitchen because they can create so much that you can't properly make with any other appliance. They’re basically appliances that cook by circulating hot air around the food with little to no oil at a high speed to cook the food and produce that crispy layer on whatever you're making!

Top 10 Skincare Products for Your 40s
Everyone should focus on a certain skincare routine that depends on their age. Since our skin changes over time, we're looking to care for it as best as possible.

28 Gorgeous Bar Carts Under $250
My husband and I host a lot of dinner parties because we love spending time with our closest friends and I'm a sucker for creating big feasts. Even though we don't own a home bar (we're currently in the process), my husband would set out all of the liquors and wine on the kitchen island. Most of the time, I hated it because I needed the space for setting up the food. I remember complaining about it to one of my friends and she suggested buying a bar cart.
10 Kitchen Tools That Will Make You a Grill Master
My husband and I were completely lost when we wanted to grill in the summer. Since we moved from an apartment to a home, we had never barbecued before.

We had an idea of what we needed from the days when our parents used to grill for us, but we didn't know everything.

Best Smart Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors for Your Home
I think I've gone through about four carbon monoxide detectors and two smoke detectors throughout my life. It was so hard to settle on either one because one wouldn't work or it would completely malfunction and wouldn't stop beeping when there was nothing to alert me about—which woke up my family and I in the middle of the night. It was a major hassle when I had to keep buying two expensive products that would detect two different types of hazards. I just wished there was one device that would detect both smoke and CO and after researching if there was, there are!
How to Wash a Cast Iron Pan
Whenever I use my cast iron pan to whip up a meal, my pan always looks like it was in the middle of an explosion. The food will get stuck in the iron pan and it's almost always a struggle to completely clean it. Even though I usually stick to my cast iron pan for certain meals—it's an absolutely essential tool for cooking a perfect steak—I have always dreaded washing it. I've actually ruined a few iron pans in the past because I didn't know how to properly wash them. There are cleaning tips available for other types of pans, like how to revive burnt teflon pans, but cast iron is notoriously difficult to care for. My own mom even refused to tell me how because she wanted me to figure out issues like these on my own...
