My First Gluten Free Thanksgiving

Published by under Baking,Cooking,Quotes

And it was downright delicious. We were created to eat! The eating experience is as much a part of living as breathing. The natural cycle is to eat, become satisfied, take a break—then eat to get satisfied again. There’s no getting past it. We are wired to get satisfied from food… ~Trim Healthy Mama, p37~ […]

Keeping our home, Together

Do not sigh while you are washing the dishes. Do not have a pity party, and do not teach your children to act this way, because they will learn from your example. If you work cheerfully and use the time well, you will teach them to enjoy their work too! ~Kim Brenneman, Large Family Logistics, […]

It is rare these days that I find recipes for sweetish things that I love and can eat. No gluten, no sugar, no oats, no rye or malt or barley. So here are a few new finds that I am really enjoying. I should figure out how to replace the maple syrup with medjool dates… […]

More of this!

Can I ever be fed, and need no more food? Can I ever sleep and need no more rest? Can I ever feel my wife beside me as we watch living, eternal, laughing things we were used to create, and not want to see them again tomorrow? ~N.D. Wilson, Death by Living, p61~

New Recipes

I am now cultivating a new habit in the kitchen! Due to the alarming rate at which my family consumes yogurt, I am now making our own yogurt! I can make 4 quarts + 1 pint for $3. Nothing wrong with that, especially when it is so easy to do!! I am so thankful that […]

Autumn Baking

Published by under Baking

Anyone who knows me knows (or should know!) that I love baking. It could be considered a passion, or perhaps sometimes even border on a crutch. When I’m happy, when I’m stressed, when I’m nesting, when I’m ministering… I bake. Thankfully, I am also finding that my children love baking too, so it is something we […]

Valentine Goodness

Published by under Baking,Life

Valentine’s Day morning included lots of cuddling and floor-playtime. As part of his special Valentine’s lunch, Gabriel got to paint bread before eating it. Also known as cheap entertainment that lasts 15+ minutes, brought to you by mixing two drops of red food coloring into a couple tablespoons of water. While my parents took four […]

We love bagels, but they’re one of those rare treats in our home. It’s probably a good thing that we don’t have a Noah’s Bagels in our town. But the bagel-bug bit me recently, so I decided to make them myself! Oh boy. Delicious. And while they may have been a little bit time-consuming, they […]

Baking Bread with my Big Boy

I know this articleis going around a lot online (at least in the reformed community) right now, and I’ve heard that people are specifically tweeting, facebooking, and blogging this quote from it: A friend of mine, a homeschool mom, just passed away of cancer. In the week before she died, I asked her if she […]
