It’s been too long since I shared a recipe and I decided to try out this awesome one this morning. It is so easy that I can’t believe I once thought that in order to make homemade sausage gravy at home I would need a pre-made seasoning packet from the store. This is simply not […]

So it wasn’t until recently that I realized that there is another “R” when it comes to reducing waste.

So you may have a few of these yellow beauties (yes, hear me out! :) ) popping up in your lawn or field so I thought I’d share a few things that you might not know about dandelions. First, and foremost, my grandmother used to make an amazing dandelion jelly. Who would have thought, right? […]
