I recently tried two recipes from the raw goddess Heathy: the Choco Nana […]

I love tomato sauce on my spaghetti, but I never thought to make my own until I tried Jessica’s homemade recipe this past week. It was absolutely delicious! Only a few days later I stopped at a small farmer’s market and bought a huge basket of tomatoes to make and freeze my own. Almost all […]

Save Money & Still Eat Well

August 30, 2009

My husband was kind enough to recently share an article on money-saving ideas on groceries that still allow for good eating. With the current economic situation, and upward unemployment rates, a lot of us are finding that it’s a good time to start saving money anywhere possible.

Farm Fresh Eggs Are a Must

August 2, 2009

Although I used to buy my eggs from a large retailer, in the last six months I’ve switched over to purchasing fresh eggs from a nearby farm (Lubbers Family Farm).  As you might guess, there is a big difference between these two types of eggs. I decided it was a post-worthy topic when the farm […]
