Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

Happy Monday!  I’ve been busy working all weekend so this post is going to be short and sweet.  My mom made this delicious no-bake pumpkin pie last year for Thanksgiving.  I took pictures of it so I could remember to ask her for the recipe, doesn’t it look great! Continue Reading »

Dark Chocolate Almond Joy Bark

It’s Wednesday which means we’ve made it half way through the week, rejoice!  My schedule is getting wild at Kuzak’s Closet.  It seems all of my clients have decided to move at the same time.  The phone has also been ringing off the hook with new clients hoping to get organized before the end of the year.  Being busy is a good problem to have so I can’t complain.  Life is good!

Life is also good with a little treat at the end of the day, and this Almond Joy Bark hits the spot.  It tastes just like the real deal!

Rhubarb Crumble Bars

Sorry I didn’t post this recipe last week like I promised, it was a busy holiday at out house. I hope you all had a relaxing 4th of July with your friends and family.  Because we move around so often the 4th is typically a holiday that we spend alone so I’m thankful that we were able to spend the weekend with some of the friends that we’ve made.  The highlight was definitely a hike from Muir Woods to Stinson Beach, my legs are still sore!

I tried this recipe for Rhubarb crumble bars for my husband’s birthday party and they were a hit.  I modified a recipe from my buddy Ina, (I am more obsessed with her these days than ever).  She made her bars with raspberry jam but I used my mom’s homemade rhubarb jam and they turned out great.  It’s a super simple recipe with just a handful of ingredients that I am almost guarantee you have in your pantry right now.

Coconut Macaroon

All of my clients love my assistant Matt and I have to agree that he is pretty great.  I’m amazed that he has stuck with me at Kuzak’s Closet for a year now, time flies!  When he started working for me I thought it would be temporary but after all this time he is still hanging around.  I asked him what keeps him coming to work and he said “lunch.”  He and I have that in common, we both love food.  The only problem is that he is a very tall 22-year-old male and I am an average 32-year-old female, let’s just say the calories affect me more than they do him.

Lately we have been so busy with organizing projects that I have had to send Matt on his own to help some clients while I am working on other jobs.  It was really difficult for me to give up control but I realized that he has watched me in action for long enough to know how to manage and execute a project as well as connect with clients and help them achieve their goals.  I know if I want to expand my business that I am going to need to do this more often so it has been good practice.  Last week he helped one of my client’s organize her storage unit and I was really happy to receive this note from her after the session…

“Matt is a ROCK STAR!! He was such a big help. Needs no direction and listens to instructions if there are any. He also makes great suggestions. He is a pleasure to work with!”

How nice of her to tell me!  I wrote her back and said that he probably had the most peaceful day of work without me bossing him around, ha!

Triple Chocolate Cake-2

I don’t mean to tempt you from cheating on your new year’s diet but I’m going to assume that you already have!  Let’s be honest, it’s been a whole week since the new year!  It’s hard for me to diet at this time of year because the chilly temps make me crave comfort foods.  The only meal I struggle with is lunch (if I get to take one) because I typically let my assistant Matt pick where we go which isn’t always healthy.  This week we have are working on a huge organizing project at a home in the area so we have been to all of the neighborhood hotspots, in-n-out burger, wendy’s, subway, and togo’s.

Thanksgiving Meal Plan

Nov 14, 2012

I have always loved Thanksgiving, mostly because I am a food lover but also because it is a holiday that you can spend in a comfy sweater cooking in the kitchen while watching football.  As a kid I would get up early to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade with my sibs and then help my mom with the cooking, setting the table and doing the last minute vacuuming before the family arrived.  (you know how much I love to vacuum!
