Dandelion Jelly 

Spring has finally sprung here in Wisconsin!  Birds are singing, my tulips are blooming, and planting season is getting into full swing.  I don’t know about you, but the promise of renewal this time of year gets me really motivated.  I am constantly surprised by the new things that I learn as I delve deeper… Continue reading Dandelion Jelly

Hearty Vegan Cabbage Soup 

I love soup.  Seriously, in this house soup is its own food group.  We eat soup all year round; not just when it is cold.  I love experimenting with new recipes and remaking old favorites.  We make Veggie Chili at least once a month.  As long as we call every soup we make “Carrot Soup”… Continue reading Hearty Vegan Cabbage Soup

Scrappy Apple Jelly

If you have learned anything about me by now, I’ll bet that my utter loathing of waste probably tops the list.  It’s just never-ending and something I’ve never been able to fully grasp – especially in this world of bigger-better-brighter that we find ourselves in; but is it really better?

Homemade Applesauce  

One of my absolute favorite family traditions each autumn is apple picking.  Each year is unique because we never visit the same orchard twice.  We also don’t go to the larger touristy farms, but specifically seek out the smaller family – run orchards.  It always makes for great family memories!
