Getting Started Freeze Drying—What the Pandemic Taught Me About Food Storage

I've flirted with the idea of freeze drying for probably about six years, but between the requirements for the machine, and the prohibitive cost, I had not seriously considered it as a method of food preservation...until March 2020.

Our Way of getting rid of STUFF….

At some point in the last 2 years I have come to the conclusion my life would be wayyyyy easier with a lot less STUFF. I mean, STUFF controls my life. My desire for different kinds of STUFF can affect my paycheck. It can take up a ridiculous amount of time picking up not only [...]

If all I ever had was Today….

What a beautiful Day today is. (But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today," so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end,…Hebrews 3:13-14) A [...]

Love on a Plate–Monster Cinnamon Rolls

I am sure you know this, but we love food. We do. And I love to cook and bake almost as much as I love food, because I love the calm, sweet process that goes into the whole project...that is, unless my kids are doing it with me. Then I turn into some crazed micro-manager [...]

2 weeks and 1 Year….what they have in common

I had to take a break from writing this last couple weeks as we walked through some new challenges here on this side of the screen. Long story short, my oldest daughter has turned out to have a heart condition, and my mother requires surgery next Wednesday. Two weeks ago we were waiting in a [...]

Forgetting what is behind me…

A few days ago I hit a hard spot. You know what I am talking about. One of those days where the echoes of the past come roaring out of the locked closet you had them securely fastened in...where things you thought were dead ashes buried years before suddenly regain new life and you realize [...]

Cinnamon Honey Nut Granola–A Tasty Tuesday recipe

I cant talk enough about how important it is to learn simple skills, you all. With grocery prices rising, and things looking a little bleak, I wanted to share a simple recipe with you that is an absolute favorite around here---and easy to adapt as you add the things YOU love, instead of what we [...]

Choose to Dance…

I have long desired to make sure that my children grow up with a positive, encouraging attitude, and remember that even when things get tough, family not only sticks together, but makes the best of it. :D So in our family, we have a strange, but VERY fun tradition. :D We turn the kitchen into [...]

When a blogger cant find the words…

I have been thinking about writing this post for quite a while, but as you can see by the title of this post, its been challenging. I used to be braver, I think, but as the world changes so rapidly around me I have pulled more into myself and my family. That is certainly not [...]
