The Recipe Page Is Now Available!

I am so pleased to announce that the Recipe Page is now up and running. All of the recipes that I’ve posted, for the last seven years, are now available all in one place!


I’m excited about the Recipe Page for a number of reasons. First, it should be relatively easy […]

Recipe Page Coming Soon

I’ve been working hard behind the scenes this week on a brand new recipe page. When it’s finished, all of the recipes I’ve shared over the last seven years, along with any new recipes that I share in the future, will link automatically to the new page by category. You’ll also be able to search […]

Week Three Of Cooking Without A Kitchen

Last week’s menu plan saved the day for me more than once! Knowing what was for dinner, and knowing that it would all pull together fairly quickly and easily, kept us from running out for fast food on at least two separate occasions. Yay for menu planning!

Stitching, Reading, Remodeling

My little hexie project has been forsaken for the last few weeks. I started working on the second piece again this week. I’m learning from the mistakes I made with the first hexie flower, and I’m refining my applique technique a bit with this second one. I plan to keep one for myself and give […]

Looking Well Even When It’s Tough

It’s easy to look well to the ways of your household when things are going smoothly. The kids are getting along, homeschooling is going well, your husband is happy at work, and there are no outside pressures causing you grief (like having your house torn up during a major remodeling project).

Planning Meals When There Is No Kitchen

Saying Goodbye To The Less Than Perfect Kitchen

Today is the day that I finally say goodbye to my less than perfect kitchen. Nothing has changed in this kitchen, save the replacement of failed appliances, since our home was built in 1990, nor since we moved in eight years later. We’ve hosted potluck suppers for up to 80 people and more intimate meals […]
