Should You Feed Your Infants Raw Milk?

Milker pour filter fresh milk to can

No. Any questions? Okay, that was too easy and a bit of a cop out, so allow me to further explain my answer backed with some research. Also, let me preface this by stating that I did not come up with the idea for this article out of the blue. There’s no mommy groups in [...]

Mom’s Classic Lasagna

Mom's Classic Lasagna

I grew up with this lasagna and I’ll never make any other kind. I enjoy others’ lasagna, but I never even order lasagna at a restaurant because I love my mom’s classic lasagna so much. It’s easy, simple and the only prep-work you need to do is brown the ground beef. No cooking noodles, you [...]

How To Prepare for Unexpected Guests in 30 Minutes

How To Prepare For Unexpected Guest in 30 Minutes

It’s a common thing that happens living in the country, and I imagine it happens to my urban friends too: you’re having a lazy day at home and suddenly you’re asked if you can have guests over or even host dinner. If you’re anything like me, you start panicking because your house is in less-than-perfect [...]

Catch the Moment – Week 34

Catch the Moment Week 34

I feel like this was a lazy week of pictures. Definitely didn’t go above and beyond to catch anything special…just day to day life, which is just fine by me. Lazy, lazy boy on the couch. Looking at the week I got lots of pictures of the kids. If every day could be jammie day, [...]

How Much Glyphosate is Sprayed on Our Crops?

How Much Glyphosate Do We Spray On Our Crops

Alternate Title: Actually, No. We Don’t “Douse” Our Crops With Glyphosate. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard that farmers spray “poison” on their crops by “dousing” or “soaking” glyphosate all over them. For those who don’t know, glyphosate is a common, broad-spectrum herbicide that a lot of farmers choose to use. It was [...]

Raspberries and Cream Cookies

Raspberries and Cream Cookies

I have made these delicious raspberries and cream cookies the last 3 summers and I decided they are more than blog-worthy. At the farm, my mother-in-law has an amazing raspberry patch that gives us plenty of berries to bake with, and these and the raspberry citrus bars are always on my list! You will need: [...]

Catch the Moment – Week 33

Catch the Moment Week 33

It’s starting to feel like fall around here and this week began with rain and then we got really humid and hot and it is still raining off and on, but now it’s quite cool and overcast. The lashes, his tiny scar from his stitches, the crispness of a black & white photo and his [...]

Tropical Zucchini Muffins

Tropical Zucchini Muffins

It’s zucchini season and it’s time to bake, especially for those of us who don’t like to eat plain zucchini (like me). Zucchini makes things super moist and delicious and has no flavour whatsoever, to me anyway. These muffins are always on my must-bake list as they are moist, light and sweet and have coconut [...]
