New Walkway from Old Material

We installed our side walkway in the summer of 2018 and after a couple of years it has settled in and looks like it’s been there forever, which is a good thing! We used the bricks from our old outdoor fireplace that was destroyed by a fallen apple tree and re-purposed them into this walkway.Continue reading “New Walkway from Old Material”

From Pumpkin to Pie

Another frustrating item missing from the shelves this fall has been pumpkin puree. The kind of pumpkin used in sweet breads, pies and cookies. The shortage is not due to the pandemic but due to the wet growing season last year. While waiting for pumpkin supplies to replenish in the grocery stores I for theContinue reading “From Pumpkin to Pie”

Not Impressed with Our Debt September 2020 Update

I haven’t updated since June so I thought I better get an update posted today. It’s been a frustrating few months. I have made some progress in some areas and put some debt on in other areas. Here’s the breakdown: Honda loan balance in June was $1600 – Now down to $900. I made aContinue reading “Not Impressed with Our Debt September 2020 Update”

Lactose Intolerant

It’s official (at least in my mind) I am lactose intolerant. Especially after last night’s late night stomach problems after eating macaroni and cheese for dinner. Most of my adult life I have suffered from what I would call random stomach problems and stomach problems suck right? The most frustrating part is that people loveContinue reading “Lactose Intolerant”

Damaged Canning Lid Update

Last post I told you about the canning supply shortage and the shipment of lids I mistakenly purchased from a company in China. I have received a $6.96 credit towards my over $45+ purchase for the damaged lids. I wasn’t very happy with this and I would never buy from this company ever again butContinue reading “Damaged Canning Lid Update”

Canning Supply Shortages

If you are a canner or preserver of food than you must have noticed that supplies are scarce this year. Every store I have called locally is out of canning supplies and no dates in site for re-stocking. Along with TP and sanitizer, yeast and flour the newest shortage, at least in my world isContinue reading “Canning Supply Shortages”

Victory Garden Update

I can’t believe I have forgotten to post about my garden this year. I am fully embracing the victory garden life this year. Mentally changing my gardening experience to embrace the idea of victory gardening has changed my perspective. Growing food as a hobby is one thing. Growing food to survive and as a necessityContinue reading “Victory Garden Update”

Home Delivery

Not sure if I have mentioned this before but along with doing cakes again I also offer home delivery of baked goods every Wednesday. This option was a big part of my bakery business almost 10 years ago and as you can imagine very popular with customers. A few months ago I put out aContinue reading “Home Delivery”

Doing Cakes Again

I have been baking and decorating cakes professionally for almost 20 years! The trends have changed over the years and continue to change. Some I have embraced and some I would rather not do lol! I stopped offering cakes for about a year because honestly I was burned out. I needed to take a stepContinue reading “Doing Cakes Again”
