Gluten Free Omega 3 Trail Mix Recipe

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

This naturally gluten free trail mix is packed with omega 3 goodness. It can easily be customized for taste preferences, but I personally love the sweet, salty combination of dried cranberries with nuts. Toss in some dark chocolate chunks for a more indulgent treat. I’ve found that this particular mix helps calm cravings in between meals or in the evenings. It gives an extra boost when I feel like I’m dragging. It’s a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, iron, protein, fiber, and other vitamins. It doesn’t have any cholesterol. If you use unsalted nuts, it will also…

Little did I realize at the time how critical these skills would become to help take care of our daily needs. I’ve been off my feet for two weeks now, and during this…

Hospitality for Guests

While we’re thrilled that they are all coming, it does involve a little more planning when you have multiple families come at the same time. You need…

Pantry and Food Storage Organization

Posted in Homemaking, and Reviews

I received a sample of the chalk markers to help facilitate the writing of a honest review. This post may contain affiliate links. Over the years, I have tried a variety of different items to label and organize my food pantry and food storage. For many years, I used Tupperware Modular Mates for all of my food storage needs and just applied small labels to the containers. (Here is a picture of my gluten free pantry while using modular mates.) This worked great as it made for easy moves and kept our food bug-free, but as I learned more about…
