  1. Hello Katherine

    I have been house hunting and looking at allmysons .com moving to Kansas City with my wife, for a job relocation.

    Originally, I was looking for new breakfast recipes and stumbled upon your post about omlettes (they look DELICIOUS by the way).

    I made my way through a lot of your posts and liked this one on “Just Good to Know”, these things are good to know, I actually was unaware of the microwave cleaning tip, so I will definitely try that the next time my wife decides to warm spaghetti sauce in the microwave without a lid 

    I tend to sway towards blogs that offer differentiating content, and follow one so that I can keep up with diverse subjects in the area. I did find your blog through Bloggy Moms, and I wish you guys had a little more posts geared towards men. But great blogs nonetheless.

    Thank You!


  2. Awesome tips, thanks. I will definitely be trying the white rice in the coffee grinder and I'm gonna go steam my microwave right now.

  3. FANTASTIC!!!! Love the tip for cleaning the microwave…I usually hate that job…but I think you've just solved that for me!!! Have a great week, dearest Katie!! ~Janine XO

  4. Thank you for sharing these tips. I like the one about using aluminum foil instead of steele wool. I would never have thought of that. I would love to learn more tips.

  5. Katie – such great tips! I'm loving the champagne one – a reason to have some more often! Cheers to a lovely week 🙂

  6. My husband and daughter both have an excellent memory too. I on the other hand… LOL! I do like the tip for the coffee grinder. I don't usually put soap in the water to clean my microwave. I'll have to try that next time. Usually I just use water.

  7. Thanks, Katie! Love the tip for the coffee grinder! Wish I had your memory. Fibromyalgia sucks it all out of my head! 🙁

  8. Okay, Katherine, just came over from my blog and am hooked. Anyone who shares such neat advice is for me! Great idea for the micro! Cleaning day, today.

    Thanks for following. Blessings**

  9. These are great tips. And yes, they're always welcome and also good reminders.

    p.s. you are very blessed to have a good memory. I'm one of those people that if I don't write it down, it's gone.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  10. OH my gosh, I am jealous of your memory…and THANK YOU for all these great tips…keep them coming please.

    I on the other hand…can't remember what I did with things 20 seconds afterwards.
    But I am 72…and being forgeful is par for the course…I understand, according to other friends of mine, my age.
    I also have Fibromyalgia and "fibrofog" comes with the conditon too.. unfortunatly as well.

    But I do have a question for you…I take Tylenol as part of my meds …and I know that can cause liver damage…do you know the NAME of the test I could ask my Doctor to send me to get to make sure my live is still working properly ?
    I have my liver enzymes tested from time to time, but not sure what to ask for otherwise.

    I never like to act like I don't know what in the world I am talking about when I go to my doctor.


    1. Dear Rose, I sincerely understand your concern. It’s true we’ve all heard that taking too much acetaminophen may cause liver damage. There are two potential ways this can happen.

      #1 Using medications which contain acetaminophen in combination with each other. It’s important to be aware of the ingredients in all medications (non prescription and prescription) that you may be taking. Acetaminophen is a common component of many different over-the-counter and prescription medications. You should not take two or more products that contain acetaminophen at the same time. There are many other nonprescription brands and prescription medications that use acetaminophen [APAP] as an active ingredient.

      #2 Not following label directions, take only the recommended dose. Most over-the-counter (OTC) medicines have a Drug Facts label to help you select the right product and use it correctly. One general safety tip: If you’re taking more than one OTC medicine, make sure to compare the labels. Taking multiple OTC medicines with the same active ingredient can be harmful.

      Your liver performs a number of important functions. It stores vitamins, sugars, fats, and other nutrients derived from the food you eat. It creates chemicals your body needs to stay healthy and regulates body chemical levels. And, it breaks down and eliminates toxins (including alcohol) from your body and removes waste products from your blood.

      When Doctors access your liver function they look at the blood levels of certain substances including bilirubin and liver enzymes. Higher than normal levels of these chemicals may be a sign of liver disease.

      It is my understanding that elevated liver enzyme levels are common. Elevated enzyme levels do not indicate a specific disease, but may be caused by a liver disorder. Common causes of elevated liver enzyme levels include : Medications such as: Certain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Cholesterol-lowering medications, Antibiotics, Anti-seizure medications, Excessive alcohol consumption, Obesity, Diabetes, Elevated triglycerides, Infection, such as viral hepatitis and mononucleosis, Autoimmune disorders of the liver and bile ducts, such as autoimmune hepatitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis and primary biliary cirrhosis,Metabolic liver disease, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson’s disease,Excessive use of vitamin supplements and certain herbal supplements, Tumors of the liver or bile duct.

      A recent study reported that increases in ALT (an enzyme found in the blood which originates predominantly from liver cells) were observed in subjects taking the maximum daily dose of acetaminophen (4 grams). Elevated liver enzyme levels sometimes may be, but are not always, a sign of poor liver health.

      Initially a simple blood test called a LFT (Liver Function Test) is the one used to determine your liver enzyme levels and liver function. Please speak to your health care professional regarding your concerns and if you are under a physician’s care for any serious condition, or are taking any other medications, you should always speak to a health care professional.

      Thank you for your question. Wishing you good health, Katie
