We found this gem the way we find most of our favorite places, entirely by accident because I was looking for a sweet treat to surprise my kiddos. I had no idea it was about to become a family favorite, or that we’d be going […]
I’ve been experimenting with sourdough over the last couple of months and as part of the upkeep of the starter, you have to ‘discard’ some of it. At first I was literally throwing it away, but then I started looking up all the different things […]

Making a pot roast in the Instant Pot can save you hours of time, a couple less dishes to wash and during the warmer months, it wont heat up your house! You will need: 2.5lb chuck roast 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 teaspoons minced garlic […]
This cute and colorful cake was inspired by two recipes I recently came across. The recipe itself is from The Gunny Sack and the decoration was taken from Betty Crocker. The recipe comes together very quickly. Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and […]
Blogging since 2009, I'm a 1950s housewife to the bone and I love to share what I've learned with others. I'm a lifelong foodie, raised with Sunday dinners at my grandmother's and daily scratch cooking in my childhood kitchen. I'm a nerdy homeschooling mama of 3, and a wife of 17 years.
I drink tea when I knit, and coffee when I do everything else.
