About Tight Knit

Thanks for stopping by! We are Debbie and Kelly...two friends enjoying living in this Tight-Knit comminity in Buffalo, NY. We are admittedly late bloomers in the blog world. We are not (nor will we ever pretend to be) designers, and we don't have anything incredibly off-beat and exciting going on. That being said, we love our kids, we find beauty in cool stuff, and we appreciate you stopping by. Hey, we are not for everyone, but hopefully you will find something here that makes you smile.

  • Why a blogger: I can't think of a better way to share the things that make me happy.
  • Favorite quote: "This S%@T Show ain't slowing down my train."

  • Why a blogger: Why not? Debbie & I have a lot of laughs...what better way to spend the day?
  • Favorite quote: "Sometimes a little lipstick will buy you a better rump roast."

Favorite Recipes


In an attempt to maintain (or more honestly, establish) a healthy lifestyle, I have found that lunch is where I tend to fall apart. Perhaps handful of grapes (truth: pretzels), or maybe a ready-made protein shake (truth: Starbucks Vanilla Latte), or possibly a yogurt with a sprinkling of granola (truth: trail mix with a spoonful of Ben & Jerry's) leave me guilt-ridden and hungry a short time later. The truth is, we all want to be healthy, but we need a little help. This morning I got up a little earlier than usual and pulled out some of our finds from the Farmer's Market this past...


Could these unassuming avocados possibly bring forth the deliciousness of chocolate pudding? Why yes they could...There are many recipes out there for avocado pudding, but this has proven to be my favorite. It's so simple and quick.


As mentioned earlier this week on Today, freshly made bread is one of the simple things that make people feel great. No carbs?? No Gluten?? It's okay- the smell of it baking is just as rewarding. Donate the bread and you make someone else's day, too!

Simple things make us happiest
