Chicken Stuffed Crepes with Butternut Squash Sauce—A birthday favorite for a special kid….

I am just going to warn you. If you decided as part of your new year resolutions that you wanted to lose weight, I can not encourage you to walk away fast enough. At the very least, be sure to stay out of your kitchen while I share our amazing pictures of my oldest daughter's [...]

Moving Forward in a New Year….

Good morning, my dear friends! I hope you have had a wonderful and beautiful season of holidays with your family, and are enjoying the rest and peace that January brings after the rush of the holidays.

Cinnamon Rhurbarb Jam…and 3 ways to use it!

Good morning, readers! Thanks to the crazy amount of rain we have had, our summer is coming around slow, so forgive me if many of you are already past rhubarb season. Seriously, bookmark this one and make sure you get it ready for next year then. I can or make roughly 60% of our food, [...]

Seasons and beginnings….

This morning I stood at the kitchen window, bright and early (thanks to the dog---but that is another story, lol)...and looked out at my garden. Last year, I stood in the same place, and mourned the empty stretch, because I was physically unable to even do the simplest of chores a garden needs.   Its [...]

It’s Time to Get Serious About Stocking Up

One Day At A Time….

How are you doing, friend? Are you caught up in the craziness that summer brings, with all its sunshine, and planting, and kid activities and life? Or are you taking time to stop and breathe deeply, knowing today is a gift and will never come again? Between our oldest daughter's graduation, the 21st anniversary of [...]

When it comes time to let go so they can fly….

I gotta tell you guys, this year has been the hardest year I could ever have wrapped my mind around. It has NOTHING to do with physical challenges, and everything to do with issues of the heart. In just under one month my oldest daughter will graduate from highschool. This is the child I never [...]

When It is Time to Start Again…(thoughts from Heather)

Hello old friends. I know I have been silent for some time, and many of you who follow me over on our Facebook page know much of that has been because of personal illness and physical challenges that have rocked my world since October 2017. For a time, I had to set aside my passion [...]

Our Top 10 Kid-Friendly Crockpot Meals for Back to School

Facebook is filled right now with adorable pictures of kids heading back for their first day of school. And what everyone doesn't see, or share, of course, is the super stressed out mom trying to balance everything, and keep many plates rotating as kids forget lunches or permission slips,  or that everyone is dressed appropriately [...]
