Top 5 posts of 2017

Its hard to believe another year is almost over…. And while I am saddened to see this year slip away, I am thrilled with the coming of the new year. I look forward to new babies, sprouts in the garden, doing the things we have always done, while learning new skills. It honestly never gets old. There is a cadence to life and I always find it magical. But enough of my sappiness for the coming of another year of (mis)Adventures!

Each year I like to look back at the articles I have written, to see how far we have come, and to see what YOU, our readers, enjoyed the most. Out top 5 this year all have been viewed over a thousand times each, with our number one spot going to a recipe that has been viewed and loved close to 10 thousand times in just 10 months. This just blows me away! I am so glad we are able to provide you with quality information that hits home with you.

So without further ado…. These are the top 5 most popular articles on our website for 2017!

Because that may not be all you’re getting in that bottle of honey you purchased from the store!! “But the label says honey!” Sorry Honey, just because it says honey, is it really?   Continue Reading…..


Lemon Crinkle Cookie Recipe – Around here, our cookies tend to be mild manner. You know, your run of the mill peanut butter, chocolate chip, and sugar. My family doesn’t tend to beg for fruity type cookies. Recently though, the littlest country kid has taken to lemons like white on rice. He goes so far as to suck lemons! I find this disturbing, personally, but to each their own, right?   Continue Reading…..


Cold Weather Duck Care – For anyone in colder climates, caring for outdoor animals in the winter can cause worry, especially if it is your first winter caring for these animals. But when it comes to domestic ducks, like other waterfowl, they are well adapted to handle cold temperatures.   Continue Reading…..

#1 Our most popular post of 2017!!!

Amish Style Chicken and Noodles – Living just north of Indiana, we always hear people rave about the chicken and noodles they get when eating out at restaurants in Shipshewana. For those of you not in the know, Shipshewana is a little town originally known for its Amish community. How much of it is still owned and run by them, I have no idea. Growing up, we knew it was Amish, but now days I wonder if it all hasn’t been a bit commercialized. But I digress….. Either way, the Chicken and Noodles there are to DIE for.   Continue Reading…..

Now on to another year of homesteading and (mis)Adventures!!!
