How To Freeze Peaches

How To Freeze Peaches

Yes, there have been quite a few peach posts here lately.  Perhaps I am just so proud of my prize Palisade Peaches I won.  (For more on that see my other post Life’s A Peach.)  True as that is, I found myself with so many peaches I didn’t know what to do.  Make them into blogs for you of course!  I promise this is the last one! A whole lug of these deliciously ripe peaches was more than I knew…

Peach season may be nearly over, but that is no reason to put away the peach recipes! Fall is prime kitchen time!  Time to dust off those special holiday recipes, get the groceries and preheat the oven!  Yes, now is the time to brush up on baking skills in preparation for the holidays.  Holiday treats come in a wide variety of confections.  Cookies and cakes, and pies, oh my!  Pie is a definite staple on many tables over the next…

Married to a Mountain Biker

Married to a Mountain Biker

Everyone has their hobbies.  Something to enjoy spending time and money on that fuels the soul.  I enjoy outings with my children and writing.  My husband prefers to spend his Life Behind Bars.  Handlebars that is.  Mountain biking. Or should I say MTB-ing?   That seems to be the abbreviation for it.  I’m soaking up the information I can about this activity I never realized was a sport.  An expensive one at that! Years ago he mentioned buying a bike….

JBS’s 2 Simple Home Improvements

It sure has been a while since my last post.  Life’s not so slow around here lately, it’s been busy busy busy.  As summer winds down we are trying to capitalize on the rest of the hot weather and the free time we have to enjoy it. We settled in nicely to our home after one heck of a move and home buying process (more on that in my other post, Real Estate, Sweet Real Estate).  Only a few boxes…

Life’s A Peach

Life’s A Peach

Peach season is here! Growing up a city girl I am clueless to what edibles are in season and when.  Now living closer to farming country, I am beginning to familiarize myself with seasonal fruits and veggies.  I am nowhere near a pioneer woman, but understanding the seasons according to prime edible pickings makes for delicious cooking! I am getting a step ahead though. There is so much to learn and familiarize yourself with when you move cities.  I was…

Super Simple Crockpot Recipe List

Super Simple Crockpot Recipe List

We love our crockpot.  It almost never gets put away.  If you know me, you know I can’t stand cluttering up my prep space with a collection of kitchen appliances.  So it is a true sign of love that our Crockpot is allowed to dwell atop our counter.  In exchange it cooks us up delicious meals.  I’d say it’s an even trade. What is a Crock-Pot?  Technically, Crockpot is a trademarked name.  The politically correct term is slow cooker.  Don’t worry…

Real Estate, Sweet Real Estate

Home Sweet Home. The feeling of pulling into your very own driveway is an unrivaled comfort.  Especially after months of the home buying process.  If you’ve ever bought a home, you know what I’m talking about. It all starts with house hunting.  Searching for the perfect place with just the right space, potential and hopefully some structural appeal.  Once you lock in on that coveted casa, you qualify, sign and trade your cash for keys. Sounds simple enough right? Recruiting…

Planning For A Long Distance Relationship

Planning For A Long Distance Relationship

  Long distance relationships.  We all have our own perceptions about them.  I used to think it was a crazy arrangement entered into by 2 naively twitterpated individuals.  Then I married an Airman. Military relationships have unique challenges.  Distance is a common and often recurring fact of life.  The military relocates the enlisted member when it works for them, it is not always the easiest for your personal situation though.  That’s where my story comes in. My husband was scheduled to permanently…

Preschool Graduation

Preschool Graduation

Graduation season is upon us. I’ve heard of so many graduations this year. It seems like everything can be celebrated and commemorated these days and some of it is a bit surprising. Aren’t all graduations the same old thing? This of course coming from me who chose not to walk for my Master’s ceremony. I surprised a lot of people by not doing it. All the pomp and circumstance just didn’t appeal to me after having a few already. Try…

High Protein Chicken Salad

High Protein Chicken Salad

A couple years ago my husband and I went on a high protein diet to get ourselves in tip-top shape for our wedding.  We would meal plan on Sundays for our meals throughout the week.  We found that the best source of high protein and low carbs for us was chicken salad.  We made probably a dozen different style chicken salads including barbecue that had grilled onions and a carrot slaw, Mediterranean with kalamata olives and peppers and we even…
