This holiday season has the potential to be really crazy with studying, tests, licensure exams, and family time or really laid back family fun with a little bit of studying…I am not sure which at this point but either way I am excited to decorate.Continue reading
So, I got a facial. To be honest, this was only my second facial ever and I think i’m hooked.Continue reading
Okay…little fact about me is that I am obsessed with smelling good. Is that weird? Whatever, let’s roll with it.Continue reading
Throw pillows can really cozy up a home. I love them and I have plenty of them. However, I could not justify spending $25-$80 on a throw pillow. That’s when I discovered this trick!Continue reading
If you follow me on instagram (@lifewithelizabethwitt_), you know I talked basically nonstop about our garden. I had never curated or tended to a garden in my life, so with little experience me and my husband decided to learn as we go. Or better yet, learn as we grow *cheesy laughter*.Continue reading
I had a sweet girly message me a few weeks back wanting all the details on leftovers, how I store them, and how long I keep them.Continue reading
Skin care. Now, I’ve never been one to buy fancy skin care products nor have I developed a super elaborate skin care routine. I do, however, struggle with hormonal breakouts and textured skin due to just life in general. Air pollution, sweat, puppy kisses, etc.Continue reading
I’ll admit it, I am a messy cook. The type where you can’t see the stove/have a million dishes after dinner cook. I hate it but I come by it honestly. (Sorry, Mom!)
One of the items I’m about to talk about I had no idea even existed as I received it as a wedding gift, but it literally makes cooking so. much. easier.
The other I learned about through my momma and it involves bacon…lots and lots of bacon.
I cannot tell y’all how many times I have been boiled potatoes or pasta, walked away for TWO SECONDS, only to come back to an overflowing pot of boiled water. These seriously changed the game for me! No matter how much of a rolling boil is going on in cook-town, there will be no spillage.
A Bacon Pan for the Oven
That’s right, cooking bacon in the oven. First of all, WHY HAVEN’T WE ALWAYS DONE THIS? Why doesn’t everyone cook bacon this way? I have so many questions because it is literally so simple and way way less messy than pan frying. I also find I can get a more even crisp when I bake it in the oven.
So, take it from someone who learned the hard way:
You DO NOT want to use anything other than a deep-dish pan to cook your bacon in the oven. Why, may you ask? Because when bacon cooks it produces an insane amount of grease that WILL spill over when you try to remove the pan from the oven.
Or so I thought. This pan has the space of a cookie sheet and prevents grease spillage. It is also SUPER easy to clean. Go mom for this find!
