Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. That’s to goal, right? Well, it’s my goal anyway. I am ALL for recycling. But, if you reduce your waste in general, you don’t even have to recycle. That’s the true goal. To just reuse and reduce until that’s all you know… Reducing my kitchen waste is always on my mind. I […]
Chia Seeds Flax Seeds Nuts Whole Wheat Blueberries Eggless Dairy Free All are components in my amazing pancake recipe. We had our first ice storm last night/this morning. Daniel is out salting and plowing and my sister is stuck here with me and the kids. Everything is covered in ice. It has certain dangerous beauty […]
I love shopping in bulk. I love baking in bulk. It’s just so much easier and saves me a lot of time. Which I think all of us can understand. When the garden is in full blast, and I just need a treat, having my pre-made brownie mix is SO nice.

(Insert Braveheart reference…”FREEEEEDOMMMMM) I bake a lot, and finding locally made baking ingredients is difficult and sometimes […]
It’s snowing. I love how quiet everything seems. The sounds of the world fade away as I listen to the snow fall. I have always loved the snow. It seems like such a pure thing. So fresh and white. My wonderful, hardworking, big-hearted husband is out plowing. It’s the only thing I don’t like about […]
It’s been a rainy, wonderful day here. Wonderful and rainy? Yeah, I’m a weird one. I love chilly, rainy days. Days like today make my coffee taste better, and my life seem fuller. I actually made pancakes this morning!! Deliciousness. On rainy days I usually get some much needed housework done, because I’m not outside. […]
It has begun. The time of year for all things pumpkin. I feel like I store up all of my “MAKE PUMPKIN EVERYTHING” feelings until this time of the year. I could live on pumpkin everything year round. BUT I save it all for this special season. Fall!!
