Planning for Christmas Baking

As I write this, it’s December 13th and we have just under two weeks to prepare for our Christmas baking gift giving. This is a tradition my mother taught me, and something I look forward to and plan for every single year.
I love giving my friends delicious homemade treats as a Christmas gift. I used to do it while I worked full time, and would spend and entire Saturday and most of a Sunday baking and cooking and cleaning and mixing. Over the years, I’ve learned how to space the work out so that it’s not so frantic and exhausting.
However, I found myself writing a book during peak holiday planning time instead of planning, prepping, and blogging for/about Christmas baking. So, here it is, a week later than usual, but still on time to make amazing gifts in the coming weeks:

Honey French Salad Dressing

I love making my own salad dressing. I haven’t bought packaged dressing in a long time. This is one of my all time favorite dressings. The first time I made it, I ate salad at every opportunity just so that I could have this dressing. It is tangy with just the right flavoring. I love the garlic mixed with the honey.

Menu Monday 15 OCT 2012

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 15th. I cannot believe that October is already half gone! As far as desserts go, I’m going to make a batch of pumpkin bread for a friend. I also have children complaining about the empty cookie jar, so I’m going to make a batch of Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

Raising a Healthy Family from Scratch

While most of us struggle to conquer our junk food cravings, Hallee Bridgeman and her family seem to be on the other side of the spectrum. The Hallee the Homemaker blogger chooses to feed her family a strict Levitical diet and prepares all meals from scratch. Hallee may be a pro at whipping up nutritious grub, but what is most important to her is making sure her kids understand the “why” to healthy foods. Find out how Hallee’s 4-year-old son became an expert wheat-grinder and why her teen daughter actually prefers the junk-free snack selection at home.

Menu Monday 27 AUG 12

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 27th. I am prepping to be away for six days to go to my cousin’s wedding, so I’m going to double-up a couple of recipes and freeze them so that Gregg can just heat up pre-prepared meals for him and the kids. As far as desserts go, we are up to our elbows in apples – canning, freezing, juicing. So, I’m going to make an Good Old Apple Pie or nine and freeze them, and I’m also going to make Brown Sugar Apple Crisp. That is so good that my kids asked me to make it for every day.

Honey Spiced Pears

Some friends of ours have a pear tree that just overwhelms them with abundance on an annual basis. I am always happy to take as many pears off their hands as they’ll give me. This year, that turned into two laundry baskets full of pears. I am always on the search for real food canning recipes – that cut out the processed sugar that is used as a preservative in anything using fruit. I was thrilled to find this recipe.
