How to fit traditional food cooking methods into a very busy life…

I have received many questions about how I fit traditional foods into my life.  I have a secret. I have not made everything from scratch this last month since Londyn was born… gasp. 🙂  I am getting back on that bandwagon though, so I thought it would be fun to start writing down everything that […]

My favorite tools for use in a traditional kitchen…

I wrote about my favorite large equipment for a traditional kitchen yesterday, today I am going to list all of the smaller items that help my kitchen run smooth.

Knives

I use Cutco knives.  I love them.  I have a very large set, and I pretty much use all of them.  If I had to […]

My favorite equipment for cooking traditional foods…

Considering we are preparing traditional foods, and some of these foods have been prepared for thousands of years, it may seem silly that I am suggesting equipment that requires electricity.  Although these items are not absulutely necessary, they really speed up the process and make it a lot more pleasant for me.

Wheat…so many types to choose from???

Since I have really been getting into baking bread, I have been trying all kinds of wheat.  I was shocked at how many different types there actually are.  I mean, I knew about red wheat and white wheat, but that was the extent of my knowledge of wheat.  Here is a list of the different […]

Baking Bacon…

I love to make my bacon this way.  It is so much easier!  Just spread your bacon on a cookie sheet that has a rim around it.  You can bake it to whatever texture you like.  My husband likes his bacon on the crunchy side.  It gets pretty close to perfect if I put the […]

33 weeks and what we have been up to…

This sweet little baby is going to be born soon.  The baby moves around a lot.  No matter how many times I experience it, I never get tired of it.  I did get some exciting news.  I have PUPPP.  In case you do not know what that is… it is the most itchy, irritating rash […]

Free trial- Online Meal Planning- I really like it…

I am not affiliated with Plan to Eat in any way.  I just received the free trial, and I think it is pretty awesome.

The website is called Plan to Eat. I was skeptical at first.  I have tried other online meal planners.  I have never really liked them.  I think this one might actually stick. […]

I am feeling better… :)

I have passed the half way mark in my pregnancy and I am finally feeling better.  I am actually feeling incredible.  I have been making a lot of huge changes in my families diet based on the research of Weston A. Price.  It has been a struggle trying to figure out how to make everything, […]

Another Christmas Present for Rylee…

First, let me back up a bit. About a year or two ago, Rylee started requesting that I teach her to sew. I was excited because I had been waiting for this day. What did I do? I did “sewing lessons” with her. I picked a fabric, ironed it, cut it out, threaded some needles […]

Sewing for kids…

Rylee has shown a lot of interest in sewing lately. She has a sewing box full of hand me downs from me. For Christmas I am going to get her some new supplies and more material. I also ordered several books from Amazon for her to get ideas from…
