With my last Azure Standard order we got 20# of pears.  We love pears as much as the next person, but pears tend to go downhill pretty fast.  In an effort to use them quickly, I started looking for various recipes with pears.  In this quest I decided that I wanted to attempt a pear […]

September 25, 2012

Oh fall, how I love these cool nights, changing colors, all things pumpkin, and soup. Yes, soup. My husband could live off of it, and honestly, so could I.  It warms the soul after a tiring day and keeps a body warm on chilly nights. Something a lot of people don’t realize about us is […]

September 10, 2012

What’s a girl to do when she has an overflow of carrots, raisins, almonds, and even oranges? Make a salad, that’s what! I created this Carrot Raisin Almond Salad after getting in our Azure Standard order.  It is modeled after the {apparently} famous Carrot Raisin Salad {that I had never heard of or tasted}.  I’m […]

Homemade Orange Oil Cleaner is one […]

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

July 19, 2012

While technically this Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream recipe should probably be called Strawberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt, to me if it’s dairy and it’s frozen–it’s ice cream!  Period. I created this cheesecake ice cream as part of a virtual barbecue recipe contest.  Most people wouldn’t think of taking ice cream to a potluck, but this one is […]

Make Your Own Vanilla Extract

June 26, 2012

As a way to cut our grocery bill, I make as much as I can at home, while still attempting to keep my sanity. This generally means that I  make all of our snacks, baked goods included.  Which means a ridiculous amount of vanilla is used in our home! I’m not a big fan of […]

Canning Your Own Chicken Stock

June 11, 2012

Store bought chicken broth or stock doesn’t even compare to the richness of homemade broth.  Since making homemade chicken broth is so easy, it makes it a great DIY Homemade Convenience Food. I used to always store my homemade chicken broth in the freezer {just like my cooked beans}–but I’ve found that canning it not […]

Home Canning Oranges

May 15, 2012

A couple of years ago, I had absolutely no idea that you could safely can oranges. I filed this little bit of knowledge in my mental “I have got to do that!” file and saved it for the day I found a great deal on oranges. That was last week! Azure Standard had 38 pound […]
