This video is over 3 years old but it was deleted when my blog was accidentally deleted. I’m just now getting around to adding it back. It was a fun video to shoot and we had a great time making it. I was pregnant with Anna at the time but it was super, super hot so that wasn’t so fun.
A large part of my life is spent in the procurement and preparation of food. I’ve always wanted to say that. 😀 But seriously, if you think about it this has been the case for most of us since the dawn of time (unless you’re filthy rich and have a cook or you’re a bachelor who eats out a lot). As a stay-at-home mom it’s my main duty to use my husband’s paycheck wisely to feed my family nourishing food #feedthepeople.
I do A LOT of cooking but strangely I don’t create all too many recipes from scratch on my own. I do, however, have a few tried-and-true recipes I found on the internet that I love. Today I’m sharing those with you. I’ve made these recipes multiple times and they are always great. A lot of them are gluten free and all use real food ingredients.
I have no idea why I like canning so much. It’s stressful, takes a boat load of planning, I don’t garden, and I’m trying to limit my consumption of sugar anyway. But alas like a moth to a flame, I’m attracted.
It’s January 2017 so first things first- Happy New Year to you! It’s a new year and I’m already thinking about canning; I do not want to miss any veggie and fruit seasons this year. I’ve become a bit obsessed with canning even though I’ve only canned 4 times total in my life. They all have been with a water bath canner. I’m still too scared of my pressure canner but maybe this year that will change.
The last three years of my blog’s content was deleted. Three years worth of articles, photos, design changes, and comments- gone. I was having a lot of buggy issues with the blog and WordPress so I asked Brian to help me fix it. He followed the advice of some person on YouTube without properly backing up my database and opps…gone.
My husband has had the same car for the last 10 years; it’s a 1996 Toyota Corolla. He’s a mechanic so it’s well maintained and the thing just keeps. on. driving. He refuses to sell it (something about gas mileage) and is determined to drive it till it absolutely can’t drive no mo. #frugal
