Pickled Green Tomatoes and Hot Peppers Recipe and Jar Lid Labels Printable

I used to look at the excess of green tomatoes before a fall frost as disappointing because the whole point to having a garden full of tomatoes is to have them ripen on the vine, right? Sure, you can place unripened tomatoes evenly spaced in a box with newspaper and wait for them to turn,… Continue reading Pickled Green Tomatoes and Hot Peppers Recipe and Jar Lid Labels Printable

Taking an unexpected break during harvest and planting seeds of gratitude

The year of 2018 was one of those years that just seemed to go by more quickly than others—maybe because we had more unexpected events than normal. I like to be organized, and I have a planner’s mindset, so I really dislike unexpected occurrences. Parents are basically required to evolve into more adaptable beings while… Continue reading Taking an unexpected break during harvest and planting seeds of gratitude

Stop and Smell the Roses—A Tribute to Mamo and Poppie

When arriving at my grandparents’ place, I’d always take in the scent of their oak trees. No matter what time of year, that scent rings true, and every time I notice that fragrance in the air, I’ll remember the simple cherished times spent with them.  It may seem that I need to dust off this… Continue reading Stop and Smell the Roses—A Tribute to Mamo and Poppie

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls and the Missing Workout DVD

Dear kids: Life’s been crazy the past few months, but we made it through three home appliances on the fritz (okay, the dishwasher is still on the fritz—Sears was certainly on Santa’s naughty list this holiday season!), some pretty stellar birthday parties (put on by yours truly), holiday baking marathons, multiple car repairs, advent activities,… Continue reading Overnight Cinnamon Rolls and the Missing Workout DVD

Halloween Treat Bag Printable with a Spooky Brew of Cackles

My husband has been telling me to get rid of this large container of Laffy Taffy candy we’ve had in the house. He says he can’t stop himself from eating it. We never really buy candy for this very reason. If we do, I have to hide it and ration the kids and him. More often than… Continue reading Halloween Treat Bag Printable with a Spooky Brew of Cackles
