Kitchen Renovation!

Well we finally did it. We have finished our kitchen renovation! I am once again enthusiastic about cooking and baking.  There is so much cupboard space, I hardly know what to do with it!

Pork Rub – Makes the Best Pork Chops!

There’s just something about a good spice mix that gets me excited. The colours, the smell, the textures, the taste! Creating a homemade mix makes it even better.  Since moving to an acreage, we started raising our own animals. We’ve had so much fun watching the kids take care of these little creatures and watching… Continue reading Pork Rub – Makes the Best Pork Chops!

Our Forever Home

Anxious - a very appropriate word to describe how I've been feeling lately. There are so many things to be done but none of which I can start on until we take possession of our new home. That's right! We bought a house. It is a 1970's home with 40 acres of land, a bunch… Continue reading Our Forever Home
