    National Homemade Bread Day

    November 17 is a great day to warm up the house and fill it with the unmistakable aroma of fresh, homemade bread.

    Kefir soaked Waffles

    I had to share this recipe for light, fluffy waffles that are soaked overnight in kefir! So, our family loves making and using milk kefir. My kids and I prefer it over yogurt.

    Feast on the Word

    As a Christian, I know it is important to be reading and meditating on the Bible. After all, it was written just for us from our Loving, Heavenly Father. However, there has often been a large rift between knowing and doing just that in my life. I don’t know about you, but I can specifically…

    Quickly Cut Waffles for the Kids

    If you’ve ever dealt with adult acne, you know how persistent it can be, how costly the medications and makeup can be, and most of all, how frustrating dealing with it all can be. I wish I could go back and tell my younger self not to waste money at the dermatologist or pay for…

  • My Favorite Swiss Chard Recipe

    My Favorite Swiss Chard Recipe

    Call me strange, but one of my favorite vegetables to grow in our Montana garden is Swiss chard! This versatile vegetable is not just a one season plant.  It does great all summer long and into the Fall.  I use Swiss chard much as I would spinach since I don’t even bother with spinach anymore. …
