Homemade Whole Wheat Bread

By | August 26, 2014

By Margaret Anne, Contributing Writer One of the hardest transitions for my family when we switched to traditional foods was going from store bought to homemade bread.

Monday Health & Wellness: Simple Anti-Inflammatory Syrup

By | August 25, 2014

This post is sponsored by Ceylon cinnamon.  Which is really awesome stuff. A few months ago, my then 4-year-old sat next to me on the couch on a Saturday afternoon.  I noticed a very odd-looking rash on his legs, which he was scratching.  I asked him what it was — he didn’t know. While I Read More

Healing With God’s Earthly Gifts is HERE!

By | August 19, 2014

The Day We Lost Everything Part 1

By | August 18, 2014

  Image by suika This story is one that I hope it won’t be hard to tell.  I’m looking at it as a positive thing right now.  Or detached.  Or minute to minute.  I’m trying not to think about the overall impact, the meta-version of this story.  Because that would be too much. It starts Read More

Fall Fermentation: WIN a Jar From Fermentation Creation!

By | August 15, 2014

Image by thebittenword I seriously love fermented foods. We’ve been brewing kombucha since 2010, and have dabbled in water kefir, milk kefir, yogurt, sourdough (I have starter in my fridge right now) over the years as well.  Vegetable ferments?  I buy Bubbies pickles.  This year, though, I’m determined to make my own fermented pickles and make Read More

Stinging Nettle: Weed or Wonder?

By | August 5, 2014

Image by Daniel Kulinski via Compfight cc By Sarah Nichols, Contributing Writer Several years ago I was completely clueless about herbs.
