Why We’re Building a Farmhouse

What do you think of when you hear the word “Farmhouse”? I think of a white home on a farm with a garden, a clothesline and animals.  I think of families gathering in a large kitchen or your neighbor coming over for coffee and a piece of pie. I think of sitting on the front porch shelling beans from the garden and listening to music in the evening. I think of a much simpler lifestyle.

Iron Skillet Homemade White Pizza

I love pizza! I seriously do. The sad thing is that all of the traditional restaurants are loaded with unwanted calories and unhealthy ingredients.

I started making my own crust five years ago. Getting my kids in the kitchen when they were younger was so much fun. We still enjoy making our own even though they are older. We make individual ones and 1/2 of two different types on one pizza. So much fun! Serve it with a nice healthy salad and that’s a great meal!

Southern Style Green Beans in the Instant Pot

I hope you are enjoying the New Year! I’m still writing 2018 though LOL. If  you’ve been following me on Instagram , then you know I received an Instant Pot for Christmas from my husband. I’ve been going back and forth for three years, trying to tell myself if I really needed this thing.

Magnolia Market & The Silos

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2019? I don’t really do “resolutions” but I set goals. Maybe it’s finances or a trip I want to plan. So, what goals do you have this year? Speaking of trips, as promised, here is the 2nd part of my trip out west. If you haven’t checked out my 1st stop – Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile and Lodge, then click HERE. Now, onto Texas. It was only a 6 hour ride from Pioneer Woman’s town, so this trip just made sense.
