Loaded Potato and Barbecue Chicken Casserole

Remember this recipe? This is a twist on that same recipe.

I had leftover grilled barbecue chicken that I wanted to use up. I didn't want to make barbecue chicken sandwiches, which would have been ok, I guess. But I took a chance and did this, and I'm so glad I did. I think I liked this version better than the original!

If you don't have leftover barbecue chicken, I used this recipe. Just cook up some and use it on this recipe. Or use a bottled sauce and cook it on your stove top.

You need barbecue chicken, I had 3 breasts left. 4 potatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, cooked bacon, crumbled, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Mix oil and seasonings together. Peel and dice potatoes. I dice them pretty small so they cook faster. Mix everything together. 
I use different amounts of seasoning in this version of the recipe to go with the barbecue chicken better. 

Layer on a baking pan and cook at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. 

Cut up cold chicken, (heart shape design is optional)...

...and add to the baking pan with potatoes until heated through, about 5-10 minutes. This step wouldn't be needed if you are cooking you chicken  the same day and it's already hot, but you would need to add it into the pan. 

When chicken is hot, add bacon and cheese and put back in oven until cheese is melted.

My $100 Kitchen Cabinet Makeover!

I'm so excited to share today's post. It's something I've been working on for about 2 months, on and off. But it is finished and so today I'm sharing how we renovated our kitchen cabinets for about $100.
When we bought our house in a little over a year ago, I fell in love with the kitchen just by the listings photos.

UPDATE!!! Check out this post to see how I also stained my island!

It was HUGE and there was about a billion cabinets. The kitchen in our old house was a pretty good size also and I knew I would not be content with a smaller kitchen. So these pictures sold me.
We bought the house and moved in and I lived with the kitchen for awhile but the cabinet color was really bugging me. I liked the counter tops well enough but they clashed with the cabinets. We did not have the money to replace all those cabinets so the next decision was to either paint or stain them.
I stumbled upon General Finishes Gel Stain and thought the idea of it was awesome. There's …

Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover in Purple & White

I get these ideas and they just won't let up until I can actually do them. My mom calls these "getting a bee in my bonnet".

Well, I had a bee in my bonnet yesterday.

This was our main bathroom when we moved in. These were the seller's towel and shower curtain.They had obviously updated a few things in this bathroom. But there is no window and it is very dark and dreary in here. Also, the paint was in a flat finish which shows up every dirty mark and imperfection. Plus, I just hated the color. It looks grey, but it's like a greige. I call it the color of cement. Blech.
So yesterday I had had it. The seller left the paint they used and there was a full gallon of the semi-gloss extra white they had used on the baseboards, doors and trim. I love the look of bead board in bathrooms when it goes up about 2/3 of the way. But we weren't messing with that right now. I was hoping I could get a similar effect by just painting the walls white 2/3 of the way up. I then th…

$5 Laundry "Room" Update

I don't have a laundry room.

I have a laundry closet right off the kitchen. I actually love it there because it is so convenient to keep laundry going through out the day. I wish it was a little bigger and I have future plans down the road, but for now I have to keep it organized or there is just not enough room for it all!

Here was the state of my closet before. Not too bad, but there were things in there that shouldn't be in there (a sprinkler??) and it just was cluttered. Not to mention plain and boring.
I think I've mentioned before on here how much I love Dollar Tree. If not, I'll say it now. I love Dollar Tree! They have some of the cutest stuff! So I went there today to find some things to organize this with. Here's what I came up with.

I bought the 3 aqua colored baskets today and the green and gray tray I was already using. 
I wiped everything down and got to work. This is what it looks like now.

The two hanging baskets underneath are simply hooked through…
