Easy Breakfast Burritos

I seriously cannot believe it! We are in the last week of July! What happened to summer?! This whole time-flying-faster-as-you-get-older thing is ridiculous. My hubs and I were discussing this with some friends yesterday and he said someone explained it to him this way - when you are 15, one year is 1/15 of your... Continue Reading →

This Week on the Farm

I hope you enjoyed your week and had a wonderful holiday celebration with friends, family, and loved ones. My parents made a surprise visit this past week. We had a great time! We've been busy in the garden, however, if you follow us on Instagram, you saw that we had a pretty nasty hail storm... Continue Reading →

Homemade Fly Spray

Warm weather is here! Hallelujah!! With the warmth comes green pastures for the horses, an abundance of bugs and worms for the chickens, sunshine for the garden, long days for work and play, and...flies. Don't forget the flies. Who can forget the flies?! If you've read my blog before, you'll remember how much I detest... Continue Reading →

Quick and Simple Granola

I love this granola recipe that my mom shared with me years ago. It is so easy to whip up a batch (or double batch) in no time. I make it pretty simple and that allows my boys (all with different tastes) to add in what they like - yogurt, raisins, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds,... Continue Reading →

This Week on the Farm

This week was full. We finished planting the garden and greenhouse (pictures to come), we built some simple gates to separate a couple of pastures, finished up our homeschool year (and began planning next year). I made this granola (which I love) and one of our new favorites - BBQ Chicken Pizza using this No-Kneed Pizza... Continue Reading →

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza once a week is a regularity around here. We do have a little pizza place in our small town, however, we love making our own. We made this BBQ Chicken Pizza last night and let me just say - oh my! It was delicious!! I used this no-knead pizza dough recipe, but you could... Continue Reading →

No-Knead Pizza Dough

I usually like to use this yeast bread recipe to make my pizza dough, however, there are days when I just don't have the extra time to dedicate to making it. So, on those days, I love this quick and easy no-knead dough. I can mix it up in my mixer, put it in a... Continue Reading →

Banana Muffins

I love making breads! Some of my favorites are zucchini bread, banana bread, and yeast bread. On occasion, though, I like to mix it up a little and make muffins. I heard Jim Gaffigan once say that muffins are bald cupcakes (a brilliant justification for eating them at breakfast). Why stop at breakfast? Muffins are... Continue Reading →

Stocking Your Homestead Kitchen

If you’re like us, running to the store is probably not convenient (especially when we’re snowed in). Making sure our food supply stays stocked is important. Once a month, I take inventory of my fridge, freezer, and pantry (and bulk storage) and then I make a trip to the grocery store and either the bulk... Continue Reading →
