Clean Camp Laundry Soap

By |2016-12-02T22:08:23-05:00September 12th, 2016|Crafts, Recipes|1 Comment

Once upon a time, I made all of my own laundry soap. Somewhere along the way, things got BUSY, and back to Tide we went. I've been missing the oh-so-good smell and feeling of accomplishment of making my own laundry soap. Knowing exactly what's in it is one of the best things about it, a [...]

Happy Summer All! Since it's the first week of Summer I thought I'd start it off with a fun recipe for summer camping. My husband always gets sneaky and adds the ingredients to make this taco salad to my shopping list just before camping. He's always begging me to make it when we're on the road and it's [...]

Chicken Noodle Soup

By |2016-12-02T22:08:23-05:00October 21st, 2015|Recipes|4 Comments

Chicken noodle soup is one of the basics of life. Right? How hard can soup be really? And why would I want to make it myself if I can buy a can for 99 cents at the grocery store? Is that how much it costs? I don't even know. I can say I never buy [...]

The Sauce Boss

A while back I stumbled upon an article about Giada De Laurentiis being the "Sauce Boss" of the food network. I watched her sauce being made and instantly wanted some. I've always loved canning my own stuff...knowing exactly whats in the food I'm giving my kids is exciting. What's even more exciting is the feeling [...]

Ball Camp Breakfast Mash up

By |2016-12-02T22:08:23-05:00January 31st, 2015|Recipes|0 Comments

Okay, that may not be the most creative name for a breakfast- but for this really simple, quick Saturday morning breakfast, I think it's a pretty perfect name. We mixed this recipe up while camping last summer, and made it this morning with little effort. While has browns sometimes take a little effort to get [...]

White Chicken chili. There is not a thing not to love about this one. Except eating too much of it. White Chicken chili is a staple when we go fall camping. It's filling, it's easy to can, and it's nice and warm in your belly. This is a kids friendly meal if your kids like [...]

Good old fashioned ready-for-canning Chili!

By |2016-12-02T22:08:24-05:00December 4th, 2014|Recipes|0 Comments

I've shared before about my love for making chili. It's the easiest thing to throw together, and the easiest thing to not mess up. You can throw it in a ball jar (or four), take it camping and it makes a really great make ahead meal! Chili is also often my go-to meal when having [...]

No-bake Cranberry Flax Granola Bars

The Ball boys kind of love Granola Bars. I can't get a box of them to last in our house for more than a couple of days. Homemade Granola bars are something I've thought about for a while but never tried because I thought they would take too much time. Turns out- they are super [...]
