Kitchen Clean Up with Scotch-Brite

Cooking is one of my favorite household chores.  If you’ve checked out my recipe section, you know that I love making casseroles and baked side.  Not only is it delicious comfort food, but it’s also generally easy to make. However, these dishes are the hardest to clean, and washing dishes just happens to be my least favorite chore!  After dinner, I especially find it hard to break myself away to do dishes and clean up the kitchen, but it must be done!  Today I’m going to share my latest dish washing tool that’s taking my kitchen sink by storm.  Plus, I have a delicious recipe for Buffalo Chicken Macaroni & Cheese to share with, and I have some ideas to help keep your kitchen clean and clutter-free.
