So, I’m on a journey. It’s rather new and ever evolving as I delve into a great unknown of homesteading knowledge. With that comes many experiments and trying new things, well, almost every day. Most of the time my husband is informed of these “experiments” but sometimes I leave a few details out.Continue reading
Throw pillows can really cozy up a home. I love them and I have plenty of them. However, I could not justify spending $25-$80 on a throw pillow. That’s when I discovered this trick!Continue reading
So, last night while me and my husband were winding down for the evening, discussing the plan for the next day it dawned on me; we still don’t have a typical “routine”.Continue reading
Relationships. We love them, we hate them, we base our lives around them. So, if that is your case; why would you not put the effort into your relationship to nurture and grow it?continue reading
I’ll admit it, I am a messy cook. The type where you can’t see the stove/have a million dishes after dinner cook. I hate it but I come by it honestly. (Sorry, Mom!)
One of the items I’m about to talk about I had no idea even existed as I received it as a wedding gift, but it literally makes cooking so. much. easier.
The other I learned about through my momma and it involves bacon…lots and lots of bacon.
I cannot tell y’all how many times I have been boiled potatoes or pasta, walked away for TWO SECONDS, only to come back to an overflowing pot of boiled water. These seriously changed the game for me! No matter how much of a rolling boil is going on in cook-town, there will be no spillage.
A Bacon Pan for the Oven
That’s right, cooking bacon in the oven. First of all, WHY HAVEN’T WE ALWAYS DONE THIS? Why doesn’t everyone cook bacon this way? I have so many questions because it is literally so simple and way way less messy than pan frying. I also find I can get a more even crisp when I bake it in the oven.
So, take it from someone who learned the hard way:
You DO NOT want to use anything other than a deep-dish pan to cook your bacon in the oven. Why, may you ask? Because when bacon cooks it produces an insane amount of grease that WILL spill over when you try to remove the pan from the oven.
Or so I thought. This pan has the space of a cookie sheet and prevents grease spillage. It is also SUPER easy to clean. Go mom for this find!
June. This month used to mean relatively nothing to me…just a summer month off of school which usually meant dreadful heat waves and a lot of fishing. But now, it is so much more.Continue reading
Having a coffee maker in our house is not an option, it is a MUST. We have even gone as far as to percolate our coffee when the power was out. Coffee. Addicts. *sigh*
So, when I moved in post-wedding, I diligently began unpacking and organizing our quaint little kitchen only to realize there was, like, 0 counter space.Continue reading
