Apple Bread

Apple Bread

I like easy recipes, but unfortunately when someone mentions “homemade bread”, easy is NOT the first word that usually comes to mind.  Alert….this is not a trick.  If you like apples and you like bread, this recipe will become a staple!  It’s quick, does not require any special ingredients (that is never in the cupboard when you need it) and yummy.  It’s bread and who doesn’t love bread? When my husband and I started dating more than 10 years ago, several…

Granny’s Chicken Salad

Granny’s Chicken Salad

The title says everything.  I do not need to go into detail about Granny and her amazing chicken salad.  Just take my word for it. Let’s cut right to the chase…. Start with a whole uncooked chicken or an oven roasted chicken you picked up at the store or grilled chicken strips or whatever kind of chicken you prefer.  The point is you need some chicken!  If I have time (haha) I will cook it myself otherwise it’s HyVee oven…

Star Spangled Fruit Pizza

Star Spangled Fruit Pizza

It’s Independence Day and who wouldn’t love a yummy patriotic themed fruit pizza?  Try this recipe and I promise you won’t be disappointed.  It is one I got off a box of Philadelphia Cream Cheese several years ago and it’s delicious.  Just so happens that I haven’t had time to make this yet, so naturally I have no pictures.  Kraft for the win! You can use a round or rectangle cookie sheet – which could be fun to do an…

Easy Peasy Guacamole

Easy Peasy Guacamole

A few years ago, I accidentally discovered I loved guacamole.  Not the boring, buy in the store, plain Jane kind.  The kind you get in a gigantic bowl at a Mexican restaurant and pay an arm and a leg for.  Yes, that kind AND my kind.  I also love pico de gallo and have an easy “recipe” for that too!  It’s so easy, I make it when we are camping at the state fair…(two thumbs WAY up)! So on to…

Kids, Cows, Clothes & Cooking

If you follow along with my not-so-frequent blog posts at all, you may have noticed that things look a tad different.  Change is good and thanks to some advice from my friends Brandi (Buzzard’s Beat) and Bekah (Cooped Up Creativity), I made the leap into WordPress land.  Peace out Blogger.  It was a good run.  More about that later, I suppose! Maybe the title intrigued you; it intrigued me too.  It also has caused me to exhaust ALL possible resources…

#CITC15 Rookie Season – Gift Reveal

#CITC15 Rookie Season – Gift Reveal

So as the title reads, this is my rookie Christmas In The Country – #CITC15! I had a blast doing this and made some friends over social media in the process. So as the details of the exchange state, investigate your person on social media and get them something with meaning. If anyone has looked at any of my social media accounts – especially Pinterest – it should not be hard at all to figure me out. My secret Santa…

Christmas Goodies – Beauty Swap Edition

Christmas Goodies – Beauty Swap Edition

So this is my 3rd #ccbeautyswap and I’m loving it more each time. This time my swap partner was Kylie (@graygirlfarms). Kylie is a busy Mom just like me and she knocked it out of the park with my swap box! Big Sexy products usually don’t disappoint if you just want something fairly inexpensive that works. Kylie sent me a full bottle of the Spray & Play hairspray. She had to have known I was out and getting ready to…

Farmer Favorites – A Christmas Gift Guide

Farmer Favorites – A Christmas Gift Guide

  Call me crazy, but I keep a wish list all the time of the things I want.  If I don’t, I have a hard time giving my family ideas for Christmas and birthdays.  Let’s be honest, the list is useless to some people (aka my husband) because they wait until the day of anyway!  He may consider not waiting until the last minute when he realizes that there are a few of my wish list items that he can…

Deep breaths, deep thoughts

Deep breaths, deep thoughts

Well it’s no surprise that I have taken an obvious break from my blogging excursion.  Yea, I know, I have a total of like 5 blog posts, so it has hardly been an excursion.  Let’s be honest, I have very little free time (ok, so I have NONE) and blogging is not at the forefront. Right now – Sunday, November 15th at 11:38 pm – I cannot sleep.  My mind is racing and my back aches.  What is on my mind is nothing short of the typical…

Summed Up!

Summed Up!

So here is how things have been shaking around here lately!  Aside from the usual hustle & bustle of spring in the Midwest and being married to a seed salesman/farm supply company manager, things have been fairly calm!  Calving is DONE….I repeat….CALVING IS DONE! Check, check.  We also have our “wintering” pastures chiseled, mulched and seeded back down and ready for some sunshine & moisture!  For those that aren’t familiar with my jargon – “wintering” pastures on our farm are…
