Today’s post is short and sweet (literally). I am sharing a quick recipe for simple cinnamon & pecan french toast casserole. It’s one of my favorites because you can put it together the night before, handy if you are entertaining house guests or hosting an afternoon brunch.
It’s sticky and sweet and may put you into diabetic shock but it’s worth it. Here is the recipe… Continue Reading »
New Year’s Eve has always been a low-key holiday for me. I like to stay home and enjoy yummy snacks, champagne, and watch the ball drop. The best part about living in California is that you can see the ball drop in NYC at 9pm. It’s kind of cheating, but it’s great to get to go to bed early! (Yes, I’m an old lady!)
I made this amazing beer cheese fondue on Christmas Day and I might have to make it again tonight! It is SO good! I wanted to share the recipe with you just in case you were looking for something special to make tonight or tomorrow during the Rose Bowl.
Can you believe this picture was on Christmas Day? It was 65 degrees and sunny so we decided to have a picnic in the back yard, so fun! I served the fondue with a chilled white wine and a mixed green salad.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Our home was full of smiles and laughter all week with our friends in town from Chicago! We worked on a few DIY projects during their visit so be on the lookout for some fun posts in early 2014!
Today’s post is short and sweet. I wanted to do a quick recap of popular posts before the year is over. It’s always fun to look back at the blog stats to see which posts were post popular with all of you. My organizing posts were a hit, along with some recipes, DIY, and estate sales. Thanks again for all your support, comments, and inspiration!
Enjoy a look at the top 13 posts from 2013 and let me know if you have any favorites that didn’t make the cut!

Where did November go? Thanksgiving has passed and we’re plowing full-force into the December holiday season. Orange and brown hues have disappeared from the shelves at my local stores and been replaced with an explosion of red’s and green’s. I love it!
Today’s post is a review of the super busy month of November. This month has really shown the diversity of the projects that my team at Kuzak’s Closet are tackling; great closet and garage organization projects, a full house relocation and un-pack, estate inventory, several estate sales and liquidations, DIY events, a book release and so much more!!
December is looking pretty packed but I am taking some time to visit family, which will be fantastic and I am looking forward to a break. We managed to squeeze two estate sales into December so be on the lookout for those updates and I am bringing back the Holiday Decor Week from last year that was so much fun. I love to see everyone’s different decorations and hear about the holiday traditions of my family and friends. Continue Reading »

I’m really embracing Halloween this year and I’m proud of myself. My friend Lori is having a costume party tonight and I agreed to go. I HATE costumes and still have no idea what I’m going to wear. Maybe I’ll pick up a set of cat ears on the way.
Anyway, the only thing getting me through my fear of costumes is my focus on the snacks I’m brining. I’m making my herbed ricotta bruschetta and a Halloween snack mix. The snack mix is a new concoction and I’m kind of loving it. I forgot how fun it is to dump a whole bunch of goodies into a paper bag, shake it up, and discover a fun mixture in the end.
