Replacing Recipes

I've been trying to replace store bought food with homemade in as many ways as I can.  I've had lots of recipe flops, but have finally come up with some good ones.  These are now my tried and true go-to recipes.  Its so frustrating when a recipe turns into a disaster, but so rewarding to find ones we love and can add to my cookbook.  

awesome blueberry muffins (these are made with white flour and not super healthy, but oh so good!)
light wheat bread (good sandwich bread)

I've been working hard at this lately, trying new recipes for dinner as well as trying to figure out how to make these things.  I figure that making my own eliminates the preservatives, lets me control the ingredients, is cheaper, healthier, and saves packaging waste from buying all this at the store.  I'm continually working on this and will share more as I go.  

Sharing My Journey

Wow, that was a long break.  I've decided I'd like to start blogging again and sharing my journey with others.  Stay tuned for some great posts ahead on things like recipes, book reviews, homemade ideas, etc.  I've been thoroughly inspired by and other blogs I've been following and this has encouraged me to begin sharing my own journey again.  - the journey towards homemade, handmade, simpler life, healthy life, etc.  :)  Although I haven't been blogging this past year, I've still been working like crazy on making our home healthy and safe.  I'll share some of that in the days ahead.  Thanks for reading!
