1. I could make an entire dinner out of tomatoes, olive oil, salt and vinegar right now.
2. Totally making these no bake cookie dough bites!
3. Hard to believe we are four months from 2023. Like what? Have you seen the meme that says we’re close to 2023 but still processing 2019? Ummm yes.
4. Oh my gosh I love this list of 5 minute tasks to make better use of your time.
5. Max is obsessed with all things maps – world and US geography, states, countries, etc. All I want to do is get him world map wall paper, haha.
6. TV things! Thinking about starting Never Have I Ever? I haven’t watched any of it yet.
7. Help. I need to the best way to clean your oven doors! I’ve tried the whole baking soda thing. I’ve left it on for a looooong time. It is not working. I am a mess.
8. The origin of the pumpkin spice latte. I am very ready for some pumpkin cream cold brew.

I can get my oven door completely clean with Magic Erasers. It takes a little elbow grease, but is oddly satisfying! Little circles with a wet Magic Eraser, then clean with a damp microfiber cloth. Magic ;)
My mom just gave me this recipe for cleaning oven glass doors: baking soda + Dawn Soap + a little water. Make a paste and rub on to glass.
I haven’t tried it but Dawn Soap is amazing stuff.
@gocleanco on instagram has an oven clean highlight. She uses easy off.
Here to say the same thing! Go clean co will not steer you wrong!
My recommendation, also. Works like a charm.
I am at the point where I am going to take apart my oven door to clean the glass in between the front and the inside. I can’t get that clean to save my life! And it bothers me.
I totally second the suggestion with magic erasers. Those things should be illegal because they are that good.
Hi! For oven door cleaning (and many other household claenaing tips), check out Go Clean Co (@gocleanco) on Instagram. She owns a cleaning company and her videos and tips have changed my cleaning life.
I’ve had some luck with the Mr. Clean magic erasers on my oven door. Those things work wonders on the my stove top and tub too.
I have read that Scrub Daddy Power Paste is great. Would love to hear any feedback as I am planning to pick some up with we are south of the border next month. (hard to find in Cda).
Never Have I Ever is AWESOME!! If you liked The Summer I Turned Pretty you will love it! :)
Oven doors – Follow GoCleanCo on Instagram! She’s amazing!
Her method for cleaning the oven door – Easy Off (they have one that’s safe for self cleaning ovens) – let it sit for a while, then scrub with an SOS pad. You may have to repeat the process depending on how bad it is but it worked pretty well for me when I was selling my home!

My parents put a world map shower curtain in our bathroom when we were kids!
I second who mentioned Go Clean Go. I just used Easy Off yesterday and it’s like a miracle plus didn’t take an entire day or too much elbow grease. I use her ideas for everything.
Never have i ever is SO GOOD. You will love it!
Never Have I Ever is wonderful! I think you’d really enjoy it.
For your map-loving kiddo, a couple of recommendations: the book (and game?) The Scrambled States of America. Really cute and fun for all ages. Also, Seterra is a wonderful geography website with free map quizzes, also adaptable for a variety of ages.
I love Never Have I Ever and think you would too!
My kids loved this magic adventure globe and we all played the games! My favorite was who could find the countries fastest!
Never have I ever is perfect television. Enjoy!
For some real fun with Max, show him a map of the world from when you were his age. It’s so cool to see them realize that things that seem so fixed are actually very changeable! You might even be surprised to see how much has changed!
I SWEAR by this method:
(1) spray Easy Off (either the blue or yellow can, if your oven is self-cleaning or not), (2) cover in plastic wrap and lightly press the wrap down (to sort of force the cleaner on the oven surface and also keep it from drying), (3) let it all sit for 1 hour, (4) remove the plastic wrap and wipe it all clean with a rag.
You may have to repeat this process a second time, if it’s really dirty.
