Check out this weeks Featured linkups.
I’m super thrilled to have just managed to list some of my favourite fibre on Etsy – blazing rainbows! I’ve had this for a little while and have been spinning up a sample, but there are Things happening with my spinning wheel so it has to wait.
I did make cream puffs last weekend. And I decided to fill them with rich whipped mascarpone cream. These little cuties turned amazing!
Hannah of the Bible was truly a virtuous woman. Her story will flood your emotions.
Hannah’s name has the beautiful and attractive meaning of “gracious” or “graciousness” or “favor.”
These Loaded Baked Potato Nachos are super easy to make and they are so delicious! They are just like a baked potato except in a fun nacho variation that make them perfect for parties…or to gobble down while on the couch watching Family Feud like I was doing tonight! Both my husband and I loved this meal and I know we’ll be making it again sometime soon.
This ooey, gooey delicious Apple Pie Monkey Bread Recipe is to die for. Ya’ll know I love chocolate, and pretty much only chocolate, when it comes to my desserts. But this apple pie monkey bread has changed my mind. I’ve come over to the dark side!
Every once in a while, I get a wild hair to write about something that weighs on my heart. It doesn’t happen often, but it is nice to have an outlet to let the words go out into the world. This is one of those times, so if you only come for the homesteading news, bear with me!
Why do I do it?? Why do I go through the trouble (and expense) of raising my own chickens? Why do I plant a veggie garden and then spend countless hot summertime hours over a steaming pressure canner to preserve the bounty it produces? Why do I haul my laundry outside when there’s a perfectly-good electric clothes dryer RIGHT THERE? Doesn’t it all take a tremendous amount of time? Wouldn’t it be easier to pop open that snack-pak chocolate pudding cup instead of making it from scratch? HECK YEAH it would!
Are you a pie baker? It seems that many bakers have a specialty, perhaps cake decorating or cookie baking. I enjoy baking pies but don’t take the time to make them except on the holidays.
While I love the traditional pie crust, and even graham cracker crust, during a recent to Duncan Hines headquarters I learned about a new pie crust made from a cake mix. It’s super easy to make and taste really good too!
Wishing you all a wonderful Valentine’s full of love and joy with your special man, with your kids, with a bunch of friends, with just your best friend; with whom ever you choose to celebrate the DAY of LOVE 2016.
I will be with my favorite man, Mr. Living and we’ll have dinner together and the table is set for four for my Valentine’s post because the table looks so much fuller and prettier, but, who knows, maybe we’ll have a couple more, as maybe a brother and a Sil.
STRENGTH AND SUNSHINE
Crispy cassava crusted chicken with a tantalizing sweet & sour sauce to amp up your dipping action. No more boring chicken tenders here, gluten-free and paleo, this dinner recipe will please the entire family any night of the week!
This is a tasty twist on nachos. They are made with thinly sliced potatoes that have been baked until crisp and topped with Mexican flavored vegetables.
