Giveaway: Panasonic Microwave
My Review: With the kitchen under remodel, we've been cooking outdoors on a camping stove, bbq grill, and this microwave. Frankly, it's been a life-saver. Without a real kitchen, I've had to rely on precision cooking in a microwave! The most used feature for us was the ability to cook at lower ...
Why I let my kids eat junk food
I’ve written a handful of times how our family has taken on “just eat real food” mantra that we originally heard Underground Wellness podcast. We love it! It makes grocery shopping and deciding what to eat so easy: JERF or not-JERF. That doesn’t mean we don’t ever eat junk food. We’re just ...

R.I.P. Crazy Mops
We found what was left of Crazy Mops late this afternoon. Not sure what happened, the boys and I found the feathers and what what left of her body on the grass. Life on the homestead….not always pretty, but you get to experience appreciation of new life and the respect of passing. I can’t leave

Thai Grilled Shrimp with Black Pepper Sauce
Patience is what we’ve been practicing for the last two months in our house. Going into a major kitchen remodel is never a “fun” thing (well, except picking out wall colors, flooring options and kitchen bling), but I never expected a 2-week stall. So close, yet so far away. We’re currently hung up

I recently heard this quote by Ray Bradbury, “Jump off a cliff and build your wings on the way down.” It’s supposed to be an inspirational quote, but I can’t shake off a animated gif of a disastrous ending. If retelling of inspirational quotes is anything like the game of telephone, perhaps Mr. ...
