Just before Christmas one of the community Facebook groups that I’m a part of had a post from a family asking for assistance to help replenish their bare cupboards. There were several posts from people indicating that certain churches in the area had pantry assistance programs.
With winter in full force we have a fire going in our wood stove pretty much all of the time. The wood stove is our main heat source. Originally we had planned to install a lovely antique wood cook stove but decided that while it would do the job for cooking it wouldn’t be […]
A few months back the Instant Pot came into my life.
I’d heard great things about the Instant Pot from Wardee at Traditional Cooking School through her Pressure Cooking eCourse (that’s an affiliate link and other affiliate links may follow, read more about these links here) but wasn’t sure how well it would work […]
It’s fall in Wyoming and I have apples on the brain!
Each fall we like to stock up on apples. I often order these by the case from Azure Standard or pick locally from friends. I love to dehydrate apples to have for snacking and baking through the winter but we also enjoy eating […]
We’re in a season without menu plans. Not having menu plans really is a challenge for me. I prefer to know what I’m cooking each day. At one point I planned not only the evening meal but also morning and noon! Yes, I have issues. 😉

Yum! This is a recipe I found on Pinterest that really caught my eye. During the spring and early summer our chickens work overtime laying us lots of eggs. Finding ways to enjoy these eggs is always my goal.
The inspiration recipe is Punjabi Egg Curry from My Heart Beats. At that post she […]
What an exciting weekend! We spent the weekend up at our property. This was the BIG weekend of starting the cabin build! We got up there around 10 pm on Thursday expecting our builders around 8 am on Friday morning. Unfortunately, the logs for our cabin were a very large load and stretched their 8 […]
