    Ideas to easily pack up your kitchen

    Moving is hard as-is, but out of all the rooms that need to get packed when you’re moving, the kitchen is easily the most difficult – by far. In addition to there just being a whole lot of stuff that has to get packed up, many of the items are irregularly shaped and/or fragile, plus there tends to be an overwhelming amount of odds and ends that can throw off even the most organized of packers. Heading in to pack up your kitchen without a plan is up there on the list of major moving mistakes, but with a bit of planning and preparation, you can simplify the kitchen packing…

    Chili – Vegetarian Style

    This site contains affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links. One of our favorite meals that everyone loves in our house is chili!  I make it at least once a month and it often varies but is always vegan.  Although I am vegan, no one else in the house is but this is one meal we all agree on. I will start by saying I use a 10 quart slow cooker  – I can easily freeze some for later plus have plenty for us to eat for days! The best thing is that it takes really no extra work for 10 quarts…

    Strawberry Milk WITH Strawberry Cream

    Are your children just like mine?  My kids go through so much milk – gallons!  But they aren’t particularly fond of plain milk.  They do love strawberry, chocolate etc… Many adults are the same way – let’s make our milk more interesting right? Additionally, everyone loves whip cream and we make our own cream all the time.  Now they can add strawberry cream on to their strawberry milk.  Easy peasy.  Best of all they can make it themselves. This really is quite easy.  Simply mix 1/4 tablespoon of 1/4 cup heavy cream and blend!  You can blend quickly with an immersion blender or even mix by hand (though be prepared,…

    Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

    My daughter and I love to cook – especially bake.  But between work, school, blogging, karate and horses to care for – we never seem to have the time to slow down and cook.  Like many of you COVID has changed your life at least for the moment.  We are now doing school from home, working from home and even karate from home.  The only thing we cannot do from home is care for our horses since we board them.  I am actually very thankful for that because it allows a safe space for me to take the kids where we don’t really need to worry about catching something from…

    Quick and Easy Vegan Meals

    I have recently started following a vegan way of living.  Everyone has their own reasons for the change and in my case, it is completely about my health and wellness.  I am totally against any form of animal abuse but that isn’t why I am changing.  You won’t find me on a corner waving a flag that you are a horrible person for wanting steak.  I will leave that to the PETA folks.  I have never been a fan of meat so it is no big deal to walk away from it.  My parents used to go crazy because I didn’t like meat – well now I am the cool…

    The Best Chicken Noodle Soup – Crockpot Set it and Go!

    If there is one thing Winter reminds me of is chicken noodle soup.  This year has been a tough year with illness in our house.  We have had one cold after another – feels like we get better for two weeks then something starts making its way through the house again.  I seriously can’t wait for this winter to be over.  Thankfully no one has gotten the flu yet (yes I am knocking on wood). And when we have three generations under one roof and several are sick – there is always a pot of chicken noodle soup brewing.  However, between work, sports, caring for our horses and more –…

    Copycat Starbucks Pink Drink – Keto Friendly

    I don’t have too many options for what I like to drink.  I am very picky and I really have no idea why.  The list is quite short – water, a few flavors of Crystal Light, Diet Coke (only from McDonalds), diet orange soda from anywhere, and several drinks from Starbucks.  In rare instances if I can find a diet grape soda – yum!  I totally love the Coca Cola Freestyle machines so I can get the diet orange and diet grape! But, my favorite Starbucks drink is their Keto Friendly Pink Drink – Passion Tea Drink.  This stuff is awesome and perfect of course for a low carb, keto…
