Nothing is better then some fresh semi-homemade bread baking in the kitchen.  I took the easy route and used my trusty bread maker, and you can certainly make this fully by hand.  This bread has the perfect blend of spices and chewy, crusty dough.  Great with Italian pasta dishes or soups.  I served this with […]

Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

September 14, 2011

I’ve got a secret to share.  I haven’t bought all-purpose cleaner in years, YEARS.  I used to buy the expensive 7th Generation  spray, because I thought it was better for the environment and my household, and I still use the very bottles that spray came in. Not only did I start making this all purpose spray […]

Freezing Tomatoes

Granola Bars

This recipe I started making to send in DT’s lunches shortly after we were first married.  They are a great tasting, filling snack and the beauty about this recipe is that though it tastes great and is good for you, it is very versatile.  I’ve made it with chocolate chips, peanut butter, toffee bits, various […]
