About Me

Rona Berry-Morin is 53 yr old wife and homemaker. I love all things regarding home management, from decorating, cooking, gardening and even cleaning. Some people have referred to me as a Martha Stewart wannabee. I prefer to say, "I love home"!

In our house it's about affordable ways to decorate.

You'll see my re-purpose, crafting and favorite discount stores finds for decorative accents, furniture and household items.

I enjoy cooking and baking, from scratch. And sharing our favorite recipes and photos of the delicious results.

As a Mom to grown son, it's now my time. I've discovered my 'girlie' side a few years ago. Plus size fashion, makeup, nail polish, and beauty are huge interest of mine. Thanks to subscription boxes, YouTube beauties and Twitter Parties, I'm able to stay up-to-date on the latest news!

This gal has been a severe Chronic Pain conditions and Major Depression sufferer for decades! On my blog, through writing and video, I share a bit of my ongoing journey of how chronic illness has and continues to impact my life, family and loved ones.

I've appeared on HuffPost Live, as a guest, discussing topics such as marriage, fashion, mental illness, chronic pain, and even chatting with celebrities.

The Ms. Camay Radio Show gave me the opportunity to speak about chronic pain, Major Depression, plus size fashion movement, and positive body image.

I am honored to have been part of Go Curvy Season 3, as their Outfit of the Day contributor. I not only featured my plus size fashion style but my money saving tips, each week!

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
