Where Do You Go To Church?

Intergenerational Church

It’s a question that’s asked often, as soon as either of us makes mention to anyone outside of our little family bubble, about getting with God to pray through something, or if we’re telling a story that involves recalling that we didn’t have peace from the Lord to make a move, or if we vocally […]

More Farmhouse Progress: Layout

Farmhouse

I have to be honest. Well, I’m always honest, to a fault actually, so maybe I should say I’m about to be vulnerable. I freaked out a little bit over the last few hours days weeks regarding building a farmhouse. It just feels like such a huge deal to take on, and I got cold […]

Farmhouse Progress, The Exterior

IMG_0778.JPG

We received the first real rendering of the farm house that we’ve been designing. It’s blue, just like I had talked about before. I can picture it already, in all its blue gloriousness. There will be two (real!) chimneys. One on the right there where that chimney-esque shape is rendered in, and then another one on the […]

I got a crazy, horrible burn on my hand the other day. I think it all started when we watched the movie Chef a couple weeks ago. I mean seriously. What a fantastic movie. It made me want to become a chef, a food photographer, a food critique, an artist, buy a food truck, go […]

5 Chronic Headache Remedies

Making A Guest Room-9

I had horrible, daily, chronic headaches until I was 30 years old. Every morning I woke up with one. I actually just thought it was a way of life and that I would always have to deal with them. The majority of them were their worst from my 20s until I turned 30, and I […]

Cornbread

Cornbread | Tiffany Ruda

Cornbread is a little, undiscovered, humble slab of goodness in our house lately. I have been experimenting with cornmeal and cornflour in baking and frying the last few months. Cornmeal has such a lovely flour. Some people may not favor the unique, crunchy texture, but I am really loving it. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how, as […]

Peanut Butter + Himalayan Salt Cookies

Peanut Butter + Himalayan Salt Cookies | Tiffany Ruda

Yesterday I made the kids a batch of Peanut Butter Cookies. 24 of them. They were gone in ten minutes. Nary a one left. I heard many “thank yous” and “you’re the best mommy in the worlds” and “you should make these every days”. Then I made pork fried rice for dinner. Even hand cut […]

Market Gardening, Small-Scale Organic Farming + Community

Small Scale Micro Gardening

Our reason for pursuing land is so that we can both feed ourselves and our community fresh food. We want to small scale organic farm enough land to feed our family, and a few others. We want to grow food and we want to see people’s faces. This is what we’ve got so far. The land […]

How to Clean Stainless Steel Pans

How To Clean Stainless Steel Pans

I loathe nonstick pans and plastic utensils. I am sorry if you have nonstick pans and plastic utensils. Believe me, I do too. I’m trying to phase them out, one by one. Little by little, each month, I try to stealth-like throw something away and see if Jason will notice. He’s got his grandma’s Depression-Era […]

Juicing: The 1 Diet Approach That Actually Works

Juicing: A Diet Approach That Works

Dieting almost seems like a cuss word, doesn’t it? Try saying “diet” while smiling. Now try saying it with your upper lip curled up in a scowl. Which one feels more natural? Isn’t that weird?
