Rhubarb Crisp

I always thought I didn't care for Rhubarb Crisp...until I tried this recipe from a friend and it won me over. Granted, it does have a lot of sugar in it so that could be why I love it so much. But, considering I don't make it too often, it's a nice summer treat to have just when the rhubarb is ripe for picking.

We grow our own rhubarb so we always have plenty of it to not only make Rhubarb Crisp but also a yummy apple/rhubarb sauce that my husband came up with. It is AMAZING!

Here is our favorite Rhubarb Crisp recipe!

Homemade Ready Made Meals for Your Vacation Destination

Any Mom knows that planning a vacation requires a LOT of work. We often feel like we need that vacation even more just from getting ready for it! It’s normal to want some time to relax once you and your family arrive at your destination. However, unless you plan to eat out for all of your meals, you’re still going to need to feed your tribe.

Our family recently went on vacation and I’m sharing with you at My Joy Filled Life about the meals and food prep ideas that I did to take a little off my plate so to speak while we were there. 

Come see what meals worked for us!

Today's FREE Educational Kindle Books or Amazon Prime Videos to Make Summer Learning Easy

Summer is in full swing around here but that doesn't mean we have to stop learning! In fact, summer is a great time to include a few educational videos and fun Kindle books or apps along the way. Not only do these kinds of things give kids something new to watch and learn about but it also gives you time to get caught up on your own things.

In order to keep learning fun and on the move around here, I scoured Amazon for a bit today to find FREE educational videos and books that I think my kids will like (and I bet yours will, too!). Since Amazon's deals can fluctuate from day to day, be sure to at least download these ASAP and then view or read them at your leisure.

The Oil Cleansing Method for Acne

I hate to admit it, but I've had problematic skin for all of my adult life. In fact, my skin got worse in my 20's and 30's than it ever did in my teenage years. What's up with that?

I've tried so many different things for my skin and none of them ever truly resolved my blemish prone tendencies. Not to mention, some of them also created other issues like dry skin and wrinkles in addition to not dealing with my acne.

To be honest, acne is not something I really like to talk about because while there are waaaaayyyy bigger things in life, having acne is painful and quite frankly, embarrassing.

Homemade Natural Bug Spray

I don't know why I didn't do this years ago but maybe it took some really horrible little black flies that are new to our area to make me finally find a safe bug repellent for our kids that was easy to apply and didn't leave a lingering bug repellent odor.

I had already long since given up traditional bug sprays because of the ingredients in them and had since found this natural bug balm for our kids.

The only trouble is, I can't spray it on them and the application process times four is more than I care to do every time my kids want to be out doors (which is pretty much all of the time when the weather is good). Plus, even though the bug balm is effective, it has a strong smell to it that I don't care to smell all day long after it is applied. (This brand does make a spray variety but it's almost $12 for 4 oz and I'm pretty sure we'd go through that in nothing flat.)
