Spring fever hits me every year. First there is the – I don’t want to do anything except be outside phase. Then, the cleaning bug hits and Spring cleaning gets in full swing. Throughout the year, and especially the dreary Winter months, just getting the essentials done is all I can manage. So, when the Spring cleaning bug hits, I like to clean the house from top to bottom and get it whipped back into shape. I start from the top on those forgotten places above the door and window facings and work my way down to the dreaded baseboards. This year before I started my cleaning and since I have been converting my home to a more chemical-free environment, I have opted for chemical-free cleaning methods. With that said, I have discovered the e-cloth High Performance Dusting & Cleaning Glove and other e-cloth cleaning products!
As long as I can remember, this Mandarin Orange Salad with Pineapple and Cool Whip has been a staple for family get-togethers. Whether for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or a fun back yard barbecue – this creamy delight has been a highlight of the meal and is loved by all! I love mandarin oranges and, of course, I love pineapple! This simple dessert combines 2 of my favorite fruits for a refreshing end to the meal. It is light and fruity, without being overly sweet. It’s the perfect dessert because you can make it ahead of time and let it be chilling in the fridge and it makes enough for a crowd. With only 5 ingredients, you just don’t get any easier than this!
