My grandma is an amazing cook and baker.  Back in the day, her and my grandpa traveled the country in their RV and would park at my parent’s house for a few months every summer.  One thing I loved about those summer’s, besides the time together, was the food- we were sure to have a lovely meal every night that was complete with a fresh baked dessert, and us kids even got to help her with the preparations in the kitchen beforehand.  One of the recipes we were sure to enjoy were her pork chops- I don’t think us siblings even really liked sauerkraut until this dish!  This definitely has become one of my favorite simple, go-to dinners.

Nest Tour: Tiny Boise House

nest tour tiny house

I love the tiny house movement that seems to have taken hold.  I believe we spend a lot of time at home and it should be a haven, but I don’t think we need 5,000 sf or more to be comfortable.  And why not use the money on things like traveling and fun activities instead of a large house payment?!

Macy Miller, an architect, has a tiny home in Boise.  The total cost was $11,400 and is 196 square foot.  Everything in the space has a purpose, and there definitely isn’t anything in excess!   But it is seriously cute- check it out.
