Gift Guide: Mother’s Day 2020

Holy cow! Mother’s Day is SIX days away! Which doesn’t leave a ton of time for shopping, especially with a lot of the stores closed, or doing online ordering only. Add in the delayed or uncertain shipping dates, and gift buying can be a bit problematic. So I decided to create a gift guide to […]

Let’s Eat-Cinco de Mayo Edition

Ahh, May! The month that unofficially kicks off the summer season and the weather warms up to be the perfect temperature to dine al fresco! And we get to start this whole month off with what has become our favorite excuse to eat tacos and drink margaritas, Cinco de Mayo. While here in the States, […]

Tips for Staying Sane During Quarantine

While it seems like we might just be on the brink of ending quarantine status for many of us, several state and local governments are extending stay-at-home orders into May each day.

Let’s Eat: Recipe Round-Up Edition

Hey everyone! I don’t know about you all, but since the quarantine and non-essential business shut-down, I feel like I have been cooking a LOT more often and honestly, it wears me out sometimes having to find recipes that my picky husband will eat. Since we live in a pretty rural area, options like DoorDash […]

Project: Chickens

Hey everyone! I mentioned in my March wrap-up post that we had gotten chickens last month. We decided to try our hand at raising our own chickens for meat because one, it’s the best way to know what is going into your food (especially meat, if you eat it) and two, while we haven’t run […]
