Living Simply

I think of myself and my husband as living a simple life. We can’t really have a farmstead or homestead like many strive for today. However, we do try to be self sustaining as much as possible. One of the ways we do this is by growing a lot of our own food in our…

Conserving

I haven’t posted anything in over a week mostly because I was at a lose for words about our current situation. I was also busy like many of you making sure that we had enough of everything we need. Finally today as I was unloading one of the grocery bags I had just brought home…

Homemade Biscuits

One of the fondest memory was learning to cook with all the many women that influenced my life. During many of the the summers growing up my brother and I would go to Alabama to visit my Aunt Carra and Uncle Kenneth on their peanut farm. Most days my cousins and I would go swimming…

Chocolate Praline Cheesecake

Goat Cheese Cheesecake

I created this when I discovered that I do not process dairy very well anymore. I use sour cream here but you could use Greek yogurt. I find that I am able to eat fermented or soured dairy which is why I use sour cream. Once you have tried the recipe you can change it…
