Strawberry Cream Bars — “I need them for TOMORROW”

I love when I get glimpses into my future, glimpses of the conversations that I know I will have with my children, it’s just a matter of time before this conversation is going to happen:

“Mommy, it’s due tomorrow. We have to go buy poster board and make the project tonight. They just told us about it TODAY!” Continue reading “Strawberry Cream Bars — “I need them for TOMORROW””

Roundup, Glyphosate, GMO

This post could potentially be controversial to some people out there but, one of my original desires to enter the blogging world was to educate people in a down to earth way. Science is scary for a lot of people and most people don’t have the time to do research. I hope this post helps to educate you on Roundup, glyphosate, and how it is harming our food system today.

Making Bread, or BUNS rather.

So, in the beginning when we first started really eating organically, one of things that was hard for me to find was organic hot dog and hamburger buns. Thank GOODNESS my wonderful husband bought me a bread machine, because that thing can make almost anything! I sought out to find the most delicious hot dog/hamburger bun recipe and opened my bread machine recipe book to find just that (pg. 92). The first and last recipe I’ll ever use to make hot dog and hamburger buns, I nailed them on the first try. I will also never buy them from the store again.

This post was sparked by a video entitled “Easiest Vegetables to Grow in a Small Space” that I watched last week. Continue reading “Experiment: Growing Romaine Lettuce”

Taco Tuesday

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned before but we are a big fan of Mexican food in our house. We have celebrated many of birthdays either cooking Mexican food or going to a Mexican restaurant and celebrating in the presence of a Mariachi band. We love it in all forms, and my son is really jumping on the band-wagon too. Sandwich anything between a tortilla and dip it in “sad peam” (sour cream) and he will chow down.
