Today we have a guest post from one of our readers, Anna Drozdova! She mentioned in a recent comment that she makes ginger beer and I just had to know how. I thought all of you would want to know too. So here she is!
Why internal exams may not be needed in a healthy pregnancy or labor -- plus, the risks of getting them. Read the real evidence.
Are you canning lots of tomatoes this year? I am!! For certain things, like making sauce, you can just chop them, puree them and go (I also like to seed them, though). But for other things, you really need to peel them too. And peeling tomatoes can be very annoying.
There are two methods: cut the peels off the tomatoes with a very sharp knife (which takes FOREVER).

I experimented with a new version of chocolate chip cookies today, and I liked it so much I thought I’d share it with you. 🙂
Tomato sauce wasn’t even my first project, but it was the one that weighed most heavily on my mind. While friends were gathering up strawberries and other earlier crops to make jellies and jams and all sorts of things, I was just waiting. My family won’t eat jellies and jams so there was no reason to make any. But tomato sauce! We go through that like crazy! It was one of the biggest things I’ve planned to can and no, I am STILL not done! But I actually did this one in a few different stages so I “perfected” my technique a bit. I’ll share with you the way that I did it, and explain why some of the other ways are not my preferred way. Here we go…be prepared to get messy!

Over the next few months, we’ll be following one of my long time friends, Amanda, as she makes her journey towards better health. Today’s post will let you know a little bit about Amanda’s history. Most of it is her words, although I’ll be adding some of my own commentary. 🙂
I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything. I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!Meet My Family
