I hope this will be the new place for you to find tasty recipes and DIY/Home projects that will make you happy, and give you a sense of accomplishment. A place of inspiration and empowerment, where you can confidently reach your domestic goals.

Most of the recipes on MelClaire are not fancy and hard to prepare. They’re just regular everyday meals that anyone can make and most of the ingredients are not expensive. They’re kid tested (big and small kids) and all have the stamp of approval of the family. I’ve got some great family recipes that are old fashioned, home cooked goodness straight from my grandmothers’ cookbooks! 

Easy preparation and clear instructions are as important as your budget. You’ll find projects that are relatively inexpensive and made with a tight budget in mind. 

If you can’t understand my instructions, I expect to hear from you letting me know! I want melclaire.com to be where you come for answers to your questions.
