Fisherman Eggs + a Collection of Egg Recipes

Since we raise chickens & ducks for eggs, we often have an abundance of eggs. I’m always on the lookout for egg recipes. A couple years ago, I came across numerous recipes for Fisherman Eggs. Some were intricate & involved. Some were simple. We tried them with plain, canned sardines & fell in love. Recently […]

Real Food Vs. Processed Foods, Let’s Compare Costs!

   This post was originally written in July 2012, please see disclaimer at the bottom of this post. While it is an older article, I find many of the comparisons are still relatively the same.

Busy Times

The next couple of weeks are going to be busy for us. Today we have blacksmithing class, and tomorrow is the last day for our other homeschool classes. We’re supposed to have a end of year program in a few days, but I’ll have to play it by ear as to whether we can go. […]

Adventures & the “Homestead”

Lately we’ve enjoyed watching the flowers bloom, the birds & their nests and hunting for Easter eggs. Seb attended his first formal, a Sweet 16 birthday party for a friend of ours. The weather has been beautiful. This would really have been a picture heavy post. Like I did on the homeschooled kids post, I’ll […]

Faces of Well-fed, Natural Living, Homeschooled Kids
