Easy Refrigerator Jam



I stopped buying jelly and jam years ago because of the ingredients that I didn't care for. I didn't want to home can it either because of the sugar content but this easy refrigerator jam is only sweetened with honey or maple syrup. My kids love this on their toast in the mornings or slather it on when I make homemade muffins.

How I Healed My Son's Cavities



For the past two years I think the most popular question I have gotten is, "How did you heal your son's cavities?" My husband suggested I finally just put it in the form of a blog post so that it would be easier for people to find. 😏

Our Lumberjack Birthday Party


The Lumberjack Bash I planned for our 5th child's 1st Birthday was one of the most fun I have ever done. I loved the rugged outdoor theme and it was very easy and cheap to plan since all of the decorations were free.😉 Everything I used was from nature, things I already had on hand, graphics I made or free printables that I found on Pinterest. 

Here's a run down of the party.

Easy Asian Salad




I love this recipe for several reasons. It's fairly quick to pull together and it's very healthy as well. It's a favorite in my home and both kids and adults like it. When I make it, I always double the amounts that I will give you below. We have a large family but I also think it makes for great leftovers for my husband to take to work and for the kids and I to have an easy, healthy lunch over the next day or two. 

I make this recipe pretty regularly because it's easy for me as a busy homeschool mom to pull together last minute and it's a great way to get raw vegetables into our diet. To make things easier, I do buy the coleslaw precut and if you want to save even more time, buy your almonds already chopped or sliced. ;) Or, if you're on a budget like me, you buy them whole and generally don't take the time to do anything with the almonds except to add them to the salad!!

Asian Salad

Salad:

1 package organic shredded cabbage and carrots (cole slaw)
1 c. sunflower seeds
1 c. almonds (chop or slice)
5 stalks green onions, chopped
2 T sesame seeds

Dressing:

3/4 c. Avocado oil (or Olive)
1/2 c. raw, local honey
1/4 t. ground ginger
1 t. garlic powder

In a large bowl, combine cole slaw, sunflower seeds, almonds, sesame seeds and green onions.

In a separate bowl, combine oil, vinegar, honey, ginger, liquid aminos and garlic powder. Stir well and pour over salad. Toss salad to incorporate dressing. The flavors will combine better if you let it sit before serving but if you're always making dinner last minute like me just get it on the table. ;)
