Without a doubt, fall is my most favorite season. I love it all: the cooler weather, the splash of color on the leaves, the coziness of being wrapped in sweaters, and the warmth from a bowl of delicious soup.

The first time I ate Panera’s Autumn Squash Soup, I’m pretty sure I died and went to heaven. The taste was equal parts savory and sweet; the texture was creamy and rich. Because I knew that Panera’s ingredients weren’t all that great (albeit, they have made a real effort in recent years), I knew that I absolutely had to start Continue reading

How To Travel with the Instant Pot

How to Travel with the Instant Pot

Suffice it to say, I’m a whole-hearted Instant Pot convert. The Instant Pot has replaced my slow cooker as the ultimate tool of convenience. It only took cooking one or two recipes to realize this device was going to change my life forever. And, naturally, my first question became: how do I travel with my Instant Pot?!

Why I Gave Up My Slow Cooker for the Instant Pot

Why I Gave Up My Slow Cooker for the Instant Pot

When my friends first told me I needed to get an Instant Pot, I looked at them like they were crazy. Really, I didn’t need another kitchen gadget. I was very happy with my kitchen collection and (quite honestly) I was too exhausted and overwhelmed to learn a new way to cook. Continue reading

Rosies: My Review of Work Wear for Women

I never thought I would say this but I have a love affair with overalls, specifically my Rosies. I wear my Rosies so much that I had to buy a second pair for when my primary pair are in the wash.

They are the most functional pair of clothing I own and I recommend them to everyone. If you are a back yard gardener or a full time woman farmer you need to own a pair (or three!) of these overalls.

But don’t take my word for it. There’s good reason why Rosies are amazing.  Continue reading

{Classical Conversations} Flip-Flap Books & Cycle 2 Match Ups!

Flip-Flap Books with CC Cycle Match Ups

Along with farming and homesteading, we are a home school family. We belong to a local Classical Conversations community and I am always looking for fun ways to add depth to our memory work. I use the website Teachers Pay Teachers a lot and I would like to introduce my favorite seller Simply Skilled in Second.

She has created a resource called Flip-Flap Books that my son and I both love.

Anna has a great website that explains many of her resources.

Each book has a single theme, comes with detailed easy to follow instructions, and matches up with CC memory work wonderfully! Right now we are working with books that match up with Cycle 2, but she has books that will work with all of the CC Cycles. I love this resource because it is easy to put together and looks great.
