Easter Tin Can Creatures–Craft Quickies




Most of the crafts I attempt are time-consuming, so much so that they usually end up in the big pile of unfinished projects hidden in my crafting room.  So when I found out Angie of Country Chic Cottage and Carolina of Moore Craft Time and Always Expect Moore were going to be spotlighting Craft Quickies I decided to challenge myself to come up with a quick, completed craft.  To up the difficulty, I also made it my mission to get rid of some of the recycling items I’ve been squirreling away.

Planning Your Garden #4: Make Your Beds


myveryeducatedmother-006_thumb9_thum

One of my goals this year is filling my freezer and pantry with good foods that have been grown and nurtured in our own backyard. Over the years I’ve learned a number of great tips from books, friends, and my own experiences so it seems only fitting that I would share those things here with you.

This final week we’re discussing preparing your beds.

Little Drops of Spring - Eggless, Lemon, White Chocolate Chip Cookies




I wish I could say that I’ve gone on a good-for-you, low cholesterol diet that restricts my egg consumption, but yeah, no.  I was out of eggs and craving a citrusy sweet treat, so I threw together these lemonade-like cookies!
  
Hope you enjoy!

Peanut Butter Bread




My home is one with a deep appreciation for all things peanut butter.  This latest creation is no exception and takes the PB&J to a completely new level.  It’s got a nice peanut flavor without all the sugar called for in most recipes.  Of course, if sweet is what you’re after you can always spread on more jelly!

This week we’re discussing seeds and why it DOES matter where you get them.

Popcorn Muffins


Yes, I said popcorn!  Remember a couple of posts back I mentioned a certain retro cookbook that had apparently been sitting on my bookshelf for some time now?  Well, this was one of the many recipes that caught my eye and I knew the next time we made popcorn I’d have to sit some aside for these out-of-the-ordinary muffins!

While they are savory, it’d only take a handful of chocolate chips, dried fruit, or a vanilla glaze to turn them to the dark sweet side.  Hope you enjoy them!

Planning Your Garden #1: What’s for dinner?


myveryeducatedmother-006
One of my goals for this year is filling my freezer and pantry with good foods that have been grown and nurtured in our own backyard.  It sounds easy but a project like this requires a large amount of research, planning, prepping, and maintenance.  Over the years I’ve learned a number of great tips from books, friends, and my own experiences so it seems only fitting that I would share those things here with you.
 
Every Wednesday during the month of March I’ll be writing about a different aspect of planning a garden fit to fill your freezer.
 
We’re starting things off by asking WHAT are we going to grow?

Science Lesson: Geodes Rock!


032

Finding the right science curriculum for the younger kids (6 & 4 years old) has been a challenge.  Until we find the right program, the internet has been my main source for what they should be studying for their grade level, worksheets, videos, and project ideas.  (See link list below)   However, on a recent shopping trip we picked up some ‘rocks’ that lead us down an entirely unplanned path to learning, learning to read instructions that is.
