Creating outdoor living spaces that expand homes to the outdoors.

Absolutely stunning! 

Consider functional requirements, the existing site and environmental concerns such as what plants work best in the area. Harness the power of the sun and choose solar-powered lighting. Place shade structures in the right places to reduce heat in the garden (as well as indoors). Take a look around your shed and see what might be given new life in your garden with a coat of paint or a bit of work.

    Miracle Pan Release

    This works perfectly. It’s foolproof when brushed into the crevices of a detailed designed Bundt Pan.

    Ingredients:

    1/2 cup vegetable shortening
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour

    Whisk thoroughly until everything is incorporated and smooth. Store in airtight container at room temperature. To use, dip a pastry brush or impeccably clean fingers into the mixture and spread a thin layer over the bottom and sides of pan(s) for any recipe that calls for “greasing and flouring” your pans.

    *Note: you can make any size batch you’d like, just make sure all amounts of each ingredient are equal to each other.
