Coolest playhouse EVER!


This playhouse is amazing. I've never seen such a cool playhouse before. The playhouse is actually an indoor playhouse inside a closet. Because the closet is so big, they didn’t have to build out. They thought a front porch would be cute so of course the husband made it happen.





We are looking forward to see what the husband made for the inside.

Grilled pears with your grilled food is surprisingly good!

Grilled pears with your grilled food is surprisingly good!

·  2 tablespoons honey mustard

·  1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

·  1 teaspoon lemon juice

·  1/4 teaspoon salt

·  1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

·  2 ripe pears

·  2 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 4 slices

·  4 teaspoons chopped pistachios, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat an 8-inch-square (or similar-size) metal baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk mustard, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Cut pears in half lengthwise, hollow out the core and slice a small piece off the other side so they will lie flat when served. Brush all over with the mustard glaze and place cored-side down in the prepared pan.
  4. Bake the pears for 30 minutes, basting halfway through with the glaze. Gently turn them over, baste again and place a piece of Brie in the hollow of each pear. Bake until the pears are tender and the Brie is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle each pear half with 1 teaspoon pistachios.

Tips & Notes

  • Tip: To toast seeds and chopped, small or sliced nuts (pages 30, 40, 63), cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
