Quick to mix up, nutrient dense, I’ve got all the ingredients on hand always, no weird ingredients…just what my family needs!

Serve warm over pancakes, waffles, french toast, you name it! Store in a jar with a lid. Store in fridge for weeks or on the counter … Continue reading Honey Butter Pancake Syrup

I’ve been making this for eons. Or as much as a 25 year old could have baked in their life. It’s the perfect palette for whatever fruit is in season, your fridge or your freezer. This one was rhubarb, peach … Continue reading Rustic Fruit Tart

We’ve got 3 children of our own, and at last count, at least 9 other kids spent a good amount of time in our house every week. (nieces+childcare kids) That being said…Adults love this just as much as kids! I … Continue reading Fruit Dip
It’s easy to look at all we do for cooking, farming and do-it-yourselfing and be overwhelmed. Honestly? If I was looking at this 4 years ago I would have laughed! What’s this crazy family doing I would have said! But we didn’t start like this, it’s been a long time coming, starting 12 years ago, before I’d even met my husband. (Keep in mind I’m just shy of my 20th birthday now). My Mom had a garden, but not a veggie garden, and with her help we started some large pots of veggies on our porch. Cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, easy … Continue reading You don’t have to do it all.
Tomorrow I’m going away to my sisters wedding and not getting home until the middle of next week. Cowboy can’t come, he’s got to work, so it’s just Mac and I. I’ve got a few scheduled posts to share, but posting will be light! You might have noticed I didn’t post a menu plan, that’s because we’re just eating up what we have to from the fridge. There won’t be one next week either, because I don’t get back until next week. Instead, it’s just other fun posts and recipes. Here is a few photos of Cowboy and Mac hammering … Continue reading Going Away
I’ve never done very much for Valentines day with Cowboy. Last year I had a teleconference for school at 7pm on Valentines day, so I made deep fried fish and chips, which went over SO well, seeing as I’d never made them before and he was so excited. This year, for the first 14 days of February, I’m going to do a little something for Cowboy. I’m going to share my plan, because I know he doesn’t read this blog. He rarely gets on the computer, and I know he’s not even a fan of Venison for Dinner of … Continue reading 14 days of honouring my Valentine.
I told you at the beginning of the month how I was challenging myself. Instead of $140 a week for groceries for the 4 of us, I was giving myself just $70. Well, how did I do? Pretty fantastic, considering that I even had $50 left after my last grocery shop earlier this week! Also, 2 weeks out of this month we have an extra male in our house, consuming lots of food. That being said, the reason I have $50 left, is he went grocery shopping with me this week and insisted he paid for groceries. I only had … Continue reading How my January Went
