How to Paint Shoes

Have you heard about this shoe painting craze? My younger girls are 11 and 13 and were dying to try painting their own shoes. 

The trend originally started with people customizing their Nike Air Force 1 shoes. But who wants to paint a pair of $90 shoes. I mean, what if you choose the wrong colors or they don't turn out how you want? I have a hard time buying my kids shoes that cost $90 anyway. I definitely am not going to let them paint them.

Walmart has come out with a pair of white shoes that won't break the bank. Heck, if you want you can paint 6 pairs of custom sneakers for the same price as 1 name brand.

Many say that brown sugar makes a chewier cookie. But is brown sugar necessary for cookies? Absolutely not! You can still have a tasty and chewy cookie without it. 

Read on to get tips and the recipe and satisfy your sweet tooth.

Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Need a quick and delicious way to get dinner on the table? Try these baked ham and cheese sandwiches (or sliders as some call them). 

Using store-bought Hawaiian rolls, some lunch meat and cheese and a delicious glaze, you can whip up this dinner in no-time. 

I like to mix it up and make a roast beef version too!
