With winter in full force we have a fire going in our wood stove pretty much all of the time. The wood stove is our main heat source. Originally we had planned to install a lovely antique wood cook stove but decided that while it would do the job for cooking it wouldn’t be […]
A few months back the Instant Pot came into my life.
I’d heard great things about the Instant Pot from Wardee at Traditional Cooking School through her Pressure Cooking eCourse (that’s an affiliate link and other affiliate links may follow, read more about these links here) but wasn’t sure how well it would work […]
For the last several years we’ve been raising chickens for meat and eggs.
Over the years we’ve had an assortment of breeds of egg laying chickens but tend to favor the dual purpose birds such as Buff Orpington or White Rock. These birds are a nice sturdy bird, that often go broody and also […]
I’m slightly delayed in putting up a recap of what happened at our place in October. Joe and I took a couple of days off last week to go hunting which meant several busy days before and after. In fact, we’re still playing catch-up!

Cold War is term is used to describe the relationship between America and the Soviet Union […]
We’re in a season without menu plans. Not having menu plans really is a challenge for me. I prefer to know what I’m cooking each day. At one point I planned not only the evening meal but also morning and noon! Yes, I have issues. 😉
