Sprouts are one thing you can grow no matter where you live, and no matter what the season. They are a great way to keep having greens even in the dead of winter. They are so simple to grow, really you can absolutely do this.
Seed organization is not that hard, and can save you a lot of money in the long run. Before you go out and buy more seeds, make sure you don’t already have them. I have been guilty of this on numerous occasions. So this year I decided to organize my seeds and make a list of the packages of seeds I have and an approximate amount of seed in each package.

Ever found an old package of seeds lying around, but you weren’t sure if they were still good. Ever planted a package of seeds and they just never came up, and it was too late to order more and replant. A seed viability test is simple to do, and uses things most people have lying around the house. Continue reading
It was my oldest son’s turn to pick what we had for dinner, and he picked Alfredo. In the past I have always used cashews to make my cream sauce for Alfredo; but today I wasn’t even sure I had enough cashews to make it, but I did have left over millet that I had cooked up this morning and I figured I would try something new.

Vegetable thins were my absolute favorite cracker, but since our decision to eat less processed food we haven’t eaten them in a while.

It took us quite a few trys, but I think they’ve turned out pretty well. Continue reading
Sunflower seed milk has so many things going for it. It is high in vitamin E, B vitamins, and lots of other good things; but what I like the most is it’s easy and cheap. Continue reading
Lemon Millet Pie has been a breakfast treat (sometimes a staple) in our home for years. Both the crust and the filling are naturally sweetened with fruit.Whenever I share this with neighbors or friends they always want the recipe so I thought I would save myself a lot of writing and post it here.

Here is a review/comparison using our whole wheat bread machine recipe (with all-purpose substitute) in a Black and Decker 3 lb loaf machine vs. the oven. The one on the left was baked in the Black and Decker (a slightly taller skinnier pan) the one on the right was baked in the oven (in a wider shallower pan).
If you are like me and love pumpkin pie, want more of it, but don’t always want to take the time to bake a pie, I think you’ll like this recipe. It is naturally sweet, and ohh soo good. Continue reading
Who doesn’t love raisin butter tarts? As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, I find myself finally having the time to make special little goodies. Continue reading
