Faux Primitive Old Fashioned Peppermint Sticks

A couple months ago, I started making mesh wreaths.  Something I always wanted to try doing and after watching several YouTube videos I decided to give it a try.  One video I was intrigued with was the Dollar Store Mesh Wreath, being the “frugal” person that I am, if I’m going to screw up making…

Instant Pot Chicken and Vegetable Soup

A little over a week ago, I decided to try a new diet plan to lose weight. I think more than a diet, it’s a new way of learning to eat the right foods. Avoiding anything with preservatives and high fructose corn syrup. You can have honey, maple syrup and coconut palm sugar but avoid…

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Soup

It’s a crisp, sunny day here in Western PA today.  Hubby was busy putting away the deck furniture for the winter and I was inside preparing this Instant Pot Butternut Squash.  In my 63 years of being on this earth, I have never tasted Butternut Squash Soup.  My mom is not a big vegetable person,…

Repurpose a Basket into a Pumpkin

Today is the last day of summer! I don’t know about where you live, but here in Western PA, it has been hot & humid with lots of rain.  I’ll be glad when all this humidity is gone and I can enjoy it outside again.  I’m a real baby when it comes to the heat…I…

Next week is the first day of Fall, but I can never wait until then to start decorating!  The leaves are already falling here in Western PA!  Hubby even had to get the leaf blower out yesterday.  We get so many leaves from a big oak tree we have in our front yard.  Fortunately, he…

Instant Pot Marinara Sauce

The garden tomatoes are doing very well this year, with one exception that something keeps poking holes in them.  I really think it’s the birds, but I’m not really sure.  So my hubby picks them before they are truly “red ripe” and puts them on the banister of our deck.  Now, if I was a…

Instant Pot Muffin Mix Mini Cake

Need a quick and easy dessert that only takes 8 minutes to make? Then you need to try making one using muffin mix.  I bought a Marie Callender’s Orange Cranberry Muffin Mix (to be totally honest, I bought it to make last Christmas–oops).  Just follow the directions on the package to make the batter. Pour…

Instant Pot Potatoes and Green Beans

My hubby picked the last of our green beans from the garden today.  I grew up on potatoes, green beans and ham.  Today, I thought I would try making it with bacon instead of ham! I mean, bacon goes with everything doesn’t it?  After making this today, I don’t think I’ll ever make it any…

Instant Pot Brown Sugar Peaches

Our local supermarket had Chambersburg peaches for 99 cents a pound this week, so I picked up a few pound.  Living in Pennsylvania, when you mention “Chambersburg Peaches” you know that you are getting a tasty peach! People travel all over to Chambersburg, PA to buy them.  They say the Cumberland Valley soil is key…
