Here we are, halfway through the school year, and this is where things in the food department tend to grind to a crawl- if not an all out halt. I don't know about you and yours, but in my house weekday breakfasts and lunches are getting to be an unpleasant chore. I ask the kids … Continue reading So. Sick. of. Cereal!- Soft Breakfast Oat Bars
Good grief, it's been almost a year. A year!! SO MUCH has happened in that year, and I wasn't sure if I would ever get to come back. I've wanted to, but it just hasn't been in the cards until now. I wasn't sure if anyone would even care at this point if I came back. But … Continue reading I’m Alive and Kicking- Really!
This week's recipe is rather a show stopper. Especially when you tell people what it is. I have to smile at people's reactions when I tell them I've made a FIVE POUND apple pie. There's always the stop-to-make-sure-they-heard-that-right face and then the "Wow!" as they let it sink in. I have fun "wowing" people with … Continue reading A Certain Wow Factor- Five Pound Apple Pie
So after being informed by my BFF that the print feature I added awhile back actually prints the entire blog post instead of only the recipe like I wanted it to, I have (with a little help from a more experienced blogger) figured out how to make only the recipe in each post printable. Yay! … Continue reading Easy Printing… For Real This Time
We are preparing to delve into the world of homeschooling this year. We've felt the need to homeschool for years but were never in a position to be able to until now. So we won't have the hustle and bustle of trying to get out the door in time to meet the bus this year. … Continue reading Sometimes Grab and Go is a Blessing- Chocolate Chip Muffins
My goodness gracious; it's cold! That's true for just about everywhere in America right now, but it goes double for the Northern Plains where I'm at. Everywhere I go there's talk of wishing for summer and lamenting how crazy cold it is. I can understand why they feel that way; not everyone dislikes summer like … Continue reading Winter Getting You Down? I Have the Answer!- Lemonies
As you know, I much prefer to use real food ("whole", "natural", etc) ingredients when I cook and bake. I try to stay away from processed foods as much as I can, but sometimes the classics are based on foods that are not really good for you. Take pecan pie, for example. One of the … Continue reading Honey to the Rescue!- Honey Pecan Pie
I've had some requests for a "print recipe" feature, so I looked around and found one of those! You can now find a new button on each post. It's labeled "print and PDF" and it can be found at the very bottom of each post along with the sharing buttons. You're welcome and thanks for … Continue reading I’ve Added a New Feature!
I have a recipe up my sleeve that I wanted to share this week, but due to technical difficulties I couldn't get it posted. I hope to have it up next week. In the meantime, I had something exciting happen last week: I was contacted by Endless Simmer to be featured in their Top 10 … Continue reading It’s An Honor- An Appearance Outside My Own Blog!
This is a very special recipe. Really- it is! This is the recipe my husband asks for every single year for his birthday cake. My husband's name is Ron (Ronald), which means "Ruler". And as he is the leader of our household and the head of our marriage I'd say that makes him the ruler … Continue reading Fit for a Ruler’s Birthday- Cheesecake
