Everyday Homemaking

Hey Neighbors!

As part of the Molly Crew, I was able to try out Everydayhomemaking.com's e-book Everyday Cooking by Vicki Bentley!  It is WONDERFUL!  My two daughters, M and M chose a meal and a dessert to make!  This book is so simple to use and has some really tasty recipes.

They made a Taco Salad for dinner one night.  Everyone LOVED it.  Now, they had no help on this one, they did it all by themselves.  They made their shopping list after checking what we already had available.  They did all the shopping too!  Great experience for them!  We have done this with each of our children at some point.  We have them plan a week of meals, make a grocery list, stay within what is budgeted, buy the groceries and prepare the meals.  You sure don't learn that in school anymore!






 Then they made Kristy's Roll-out Cookies.  This was really alot of fun.  Once again, no assistance.  easy to follow directions, and as you can see in the picture, they used my iPad!
She used the iPad with the recipe pulled up!

Rolling out the dough!

The finished product!

We have started a list of other recipes we want to try!  This is perfect for a homeschool, home economics class.  Not only are there recipes, but there are time saving tips.  Most of these recipes are designed to be easy and to help a homeschooling mother.  You should easily be able to prepare these meals on a school day.

You can purchase the actual book for $17.99 or the e-Book for $14.99.  Personally, I like the e-Book.


Everyday Homemaking is loaded with information to help you organize your everyday family life.  You will be amazed at all the information available on their site.  You will be able to find recipes and articles on homemaking.  Perfect for homeschooling too!

Homemaking is great but girls must be encouraged to study academics as well and aim for college.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
