Wander The Web Wednesday

August 03, 2011

Another rendition of wander the web Wednesday.  This week my focus seems to be on food.
  • Eggs on Sunday is a lovely blog about what else?  Food.  The focus is on cooking with whole foods and organic ingredients.  There's a recipe for Maple-Walnut Apple Cake that looks divine!
  • Piece Of Cake is a combination of scrumptious recipes and photos that will make your mouth water.
  • Kevin Kossowan's blog features his life of hunting, gardening, smoking meat, and cooking over a wood fire among other adventures.  It's a fascinating read.  Kevin is also involved with the Edmonton slow food movement.
  • Sense of Home Kitchen is a place where Brenda blogs about her homemade life.  A little gardening mixed with a lot of cooking combined with frugal living and photography.  I found some very unique recipes on her blog.  I mean, where else can you find recipes for Parsnip Cake or Parsnip Muffins?
  • A Foothill Home Companion is a beautiful blog with interesting photos and posts.  Although I wish there was an "about me" area to learn more about the author, I've found her posts quite enjoyable.  And she raises chickens and've gotta love that!!
  • A Lego A Day is a site devoted to, well, legos.  It's 365 days of a different lego scene per day.  Although the 365 days just finished, it's amusing to go back through and see the creativity.
  • Noble Pig is yes, you guessed it, another food blog.  This one, however, focuses a lot on main and side dishes (to help balance the sweets from the others!).  I plan on trying the coleslaw and cheese broiled tomato recipes this week!
  • One Perfect Bite  Simply put - beautiful photos, and fantastic recipes.  A great "go to" site when you need to find something to bake or cook.
Hope you find something you enjoy!!

October 15, 2017

So you've likely read the last post recapping the first 5 years of our business, Cobble Hill Farm Apothecary.  You've learned that it's been a crazy ride with a business that (thankfully) has truly taken off.  You've also learned that we've never worked harder in our lives.

It's true!

Please know that it hasn't all been lollipops and rainbows. We have had many many struggles. Certainly some...

My Story: Building A Soap Business To Earn Six Figures In 3 Years

October 10, 2017

As promised, here's a little bit about the business we've created from the ground up.

When I started  Cobble Hill Farm Apothecaryin 2013, it was meant to be a "someday" retirement business. With all of the other soap & skincare companies out there, we honestly had no idea that it would even be a possibility of doing as well as it did so soon. But it has, and for that we are incredibly grateful. (I...

How To Fail At Homesteading.....

October 06, 2017

Ok, so the title is a tad bit dramatic.  But friends, it's simply reality.  I could teach a course on how-to fail at homesteading, particularly this year.


Probably not a good thing since this is a homesteading blog. It seems that the attempt to keep all balls in the air whilst one also tries to also craft a homemade life is, um, not possible. At least not on this small homestead. And at...
