Dehydrated Flax Cracker Recipe

Dehydrated Flax Cracker Recipe

There are so many things I could say about flax crackers.

They’re absolutley the easiest cracker you’ll ever make, gluten-free or otherwise! No heating up the oven, mixing, rolling, cutting, poking with a fork… none of that. The prep time for making flax crackers is litteraly under two minutes. This is the kind of thing that makes homemade snacks possible for even the busiest of people!

I was first introduced to flax crackers by a friend who eats a 100% raw diet. Honestly, up until that point, I hadn’t been terribly impressed by her raw food versions of…… Read More »

The Cloth Diaperer’s Guide To Packing A Diaper Bag

The Cloth Diaperer’s Guide To Packing A Diaper Bag
PinIt

I know a lot of us cloth diaper at home, but feel like it’s too much work when we’re going out to bring cloth diapers, a wet bag for dirty diapers, and try to keep everything organized. Much easier just to take disposables and throw them away after you use them! 

After a while though, especially with baby number two bringing about my determination not to buy any more paper diapers, I worked out a system that I feel works really well - for me at least - and since I’ve read a lot of cloth diapering tipps, blog posts, and even wrote a few (such as Read More »

Healthy, No-Churn Chocolate Ice Cream

Healthy, No-Churn Chocolate Ice Cream

My eleven month old has a chocolate ice cream stash on her upper lip. Now, normally I’d agree that this makes me a bad parent, but this time, it’s actually healthy ice cream, so I don’t feel bad.

Gabriel and I like to go out occasionally and get ice cream, or a milk shake to share. It’s kind of been our default date night plan our entire married life. But we always seem to feel slightly crummy afterward, and more and more, we find that we like staying in and making our own ice cream. 

In fact, we even like the… Read More »

Three Big Reasons Why You Should Grind Your Own Flour

Three Big Reasons Why You Should Grind Your Own Flour

Why should you grind your own grain when there’s perfectly good flour available at the grocery store and online?

We’re all so busy that there has to be some seriously good incentive to warrant taking on another chore. 

So here the three main reasons why I own a grain millRead More »

Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake

Sometimes life calls for chocolate, and when it does, it’s usually an I-need-it-right-now-but-don’t-want-to-make-an-entire-pan kind of thing.

That’s why God made coffee mugs (I’m pretty sure he didn’t intend for them to be used for actual coffee *gag*). And it’s one big reason why I keep a jar full of gluten-free cake mix in my pantry. Not THE reason, but a big one. You never know when a chocolate craving’s gonna hit.

Why I don’t use Shaving Cream

Why I don’t use Shaving Cream

I don’t use shaving cream. Is that weird? 

I guess it may seem weird at first, but it works out really well for me, because I’ve found something that works better.

Soap. 

Yes, really. 

But not just any soap. See, most of the bars and bottles you pick up at the store, are detergents. The big difference is that they’ve had the natural glycerin, which is the moisturizing and softening component, removed.

Chicken Processing Day On The Farm

Yesterday, we spent our entire morning processing chickens. I’m so very thankful for neighbors who trade processing days with us. It’s lovely to get together to work, while our kids play nearby.

With their help, we were able to have 25 cickens done and in the cooler by lunch time. It just wouldn’t have been possible without them! 

It may sound like a super gross job, and I suppose it is if you’re not used to handling meat, but really, it’s not bad! The… Read More »

Gabriel and I really love sausage - and it’s becomming one of Haddassah’s favorites as well - but we gave up buying sausage from the store. Instead, we make our own.

If you’re concerned about all the nitrites and nitrates use to preserve commercial sausage, you’ll really love this recipe!

Sausage is really easy to make (We even make our own Read More »

Do your kids constantly beg you for snacks? Or are mine the only ones? wink

I have a tendency to get in a rut with making the same snack over and over again. To combat that, I’ve compiled a list of 27 healthy kid snack recipes from my fellow gluten-free bloggers to keep handy. These look so amazing! I’ve already tried several that we love, and can’t wait to try more! I think the crispy chickpeas are going to be a hit!

April/May/June Date updates

You may have noticed that I dropped the ball on the whole monthly date post thing the last couple months.

So what happened? Well, the answer to that is pretty easy actually. 



Gabriel started going out of town for work, two of my sisters and my dad decided to get married this summer, making us ├╝ber busy (that, by the way, is the reason you’re only seeing two posts per week over here these days), and well, life happened. 

I really thought April… Read More »
