Making Maple Bacon

When we started looking around our house and the things we use to start planning our homestead, and the skills we wanted to learn. One of the first things we noticed is that our family loves the great smell of bacon in the morning! So, of course, we had to set out to make our…

7 Days To Your Best Sour Dough Starter

Recently Kevin and I have taken up the challenge of making our own bread. Bread isn’t something that we use a lot of in our house so it unfortunately usually goes bad. I know I know, bad llama, I shouldn’t be so wasteful, but we are working to fix it and that’s the important part!…
