Hello Friends!

May is here and the warm weather is pushing me to finish some projects around the house. We’ve focused on both big and small outdoor projects this spring and I’m loving the transformation! Inside the house, I’m trying to tackle empty walls and unorganized closets.

Does keeping closets organized feel like a never-ending project to anyone else, or is it just me? Before we dive into the recipes I have for you today I wanted to remind you of the 3 things you can expect from my Coffee & Dish posts: a note from me, recipes I’ve tried, and then a favorite thing or tip to help you out.

Today I have 10 new recipes to share with you. In full transparency, I tried these in 2020 and haven’t shared them with you yet, but there were some good ones that I don’t want you to miss out on! So here we go.

  • Cons: It was a lot of potato

I don’t remember where I heard it but someone mentioned that if you are more likely to know where your pen is if you only have 1 pen and not a plethora lying around everywhere. And guys, it’s true. I have a couple of pens that have been with me for years and I keep reaching for them. They are all used for different tasks and kept in specific places. Back in the fall, I added a 3 pack of these pens to my life, I keep one with my panner, one in my purse, and one at my desk. I love how smoothly they write and that they don’t smudge (my lefthanded friends know the struggle is real)! I’d love to hear if you have favorite pens or an organization hack!


I would love to connect with you over on social media!
