First let off let me tell you - I hate night time cloth diapering! I love cloth for during the day but there have been many times that I have almost given up and gone back to disposables for night time (but then I remind myself about all those nasty plastic diapers going to the landfill and I figure hey so what if I have to change the bedding one more time?) But seriously, my son nurses all night long and he pees enough to prove it, so we have had too many leaky nighttime diapers to count. I have tried many expensive name brand cloth diapers and even with so many extra inserts shoved inside that my sons PJ pants are stretched like a rubber band, they still end up leaking about half the time.

This simple mix was one of the first things that I started making from scratch six years ago when my hubby and I were first married. We were poor, living in a small two bedroom apartment (that I loved) and we needed to do everything we could to make our pennies (not even dollars) stretch as far as possible. I continue to make it because it is easy, inexpensive, is better for you and has far less ingredients than store bought counterparts.

Here is a simple and quick sorting game for toddlers and young children. This will help children learn colors, shapes, recognize similarity in objects and fine motor skills.

I hate using pectin in homemade jam. With pectin the manufacturer’s recipe has to be followed or else it doesn’t set and I don't want to eat that much sugar. Pectin also adds an unnecessary expense. No pectin jam is easier than most people think – all you have to do is boil the jam until you get a thick consistency! Here are the rhubarb jam recipes that I have made so far this spring.

I love alternative medicines. I love that nature has so many ways to help our bodies heal themselves - really heal instead of just covering up the annoying symptoms. I have always been drawn to nature and plants and since having a baby I have spent a lot of time learning about healing naturally.

I love my sour dough start. I love that it gets all bubbly and makes bread with only four simple ingredients... the sour dough start, flour, water, and salt. I love that I can use it to make pancakes, chocolate cake, biscuits, waffles, and just about any other baked good. But I'm still learning about sour dough and one thing I wanted to understand better is this: after feeding the start, when is the best time to use it to bake with?
