How To Save Tomato Seeds for Next Years Garden

Saving vegetable and fruit seeds from year to year is fun and easy, and saves money in the long run. Not to mention the satisfaction you feel, from feeding your family fresh produce you grew with your own two hands. Today we're discussing a seed that needs a little extra attention to preserve, Tomato Seeds.

Most vegetable seeds can simply be collected, dried, and saved for next year. But with tomato seeds, there's an additional step that's needed. They must be fermented as well.

Goodbye Feedburner, Hello MailChimp!

After nearly seven years of using Feedburner for my blog’s email and RSS delivery option, I’ve finally made the switch to MailChimp.

I've had this on my to-do list for a really long time, close to two years to be exact. Have you ever had one of those lists? You know, the one that you keep adding stuff to that you feel is important, and that one little project that you feel isn't that important, keeps getting pushed further and further down the list. What with having two surgeries in the last two years, plus dealing with the illnesses that caused me to have those surgeries, making that kind of big change didn't seem all that necessary at the time.

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream - No Ice Cream Machine Needed!

Cool, creamy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, that only takes three ingredients, and it's made without an ice-cream machine!

For those of us without an ice cream maker, homemade ice cream used to be something we could only dream about. So the first time I heard about this easy recipe that didn't need a machine, I was doubtful it would work. But I was up for the challenge and went for it, and I'm glad I did, because this stuff is amazing! Now you don't have to let your lack of an ice cream maker, stand in the way of enjoying creamy and delicious homemade ice cream at home.

Grilled Peanut Butter S'mores Banana Boats

Caramelized bananas, covered with slightly salty peanut butter, sweet melted chocolate, and gooey marshmallows. That my friends, is a Grilled Peanut Butter S'mores Banana Boat!

Banana boats are a yummy treat, that a camper from long ago, thought would be a good dessert to cook over a campfire. And boy were they right! There is something special that happens when you cook a banana over an open flame. It almost caramelizes and becomes even sweeter than it normally is. And when it's topped with smooth, slightly salty peanut butter, sweet melted chocolate, and gooey marshmallows, you are talking a drool-worthy treat.

The New and Improved Home Sweet Homestead!

Hi and welcome to the official rebranding of Angels Home Sweet Homestead, which from here on out will be known as Home Sweet Homestead!

I've been teasing you all with this for awhile now, and after a few hiccups, my updated blog is ready. I wanted to use a professional blog designer to help me with this, but while I found some good deals out there, it just wasn't in my budget. :( So after a lot of sweat and tears, and mistakes, I did it myself and am pretty happy with the results. Making a blog design takes a good knowledge of HTML, which I feel pretty confident in doing after redigning my blog! Some of the things I've done is freshen up my layout, making it cleaner and neater, adding new social media buttons, removing some, and resizing the remaining graphics in my sidebar, to make the sidebar flow more smoothly, added a new header, and renamed my blog.

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus #SecretRecipeClub

Hummus flavored with the irresistible taste of freshly roasted red peppers, for a delicious treat that you wont be able to stop dipping chips and fresh veggies into.

It's been hot and muggy here in Southern Indiana lately, add to that my being sick with gallbladder issues, and I have been pretty miserable the last month or so. So there hasn't been a lot of cooking going on at my house. My husband, bless his heart, has been a sweetheart and taken up the cooking duties whenever I become to ill. His cooking style and mine are quite different though and while his meals are tasty, they are pretty straightforward and simple. While I like trying new recipes, and experimenting with herbs and spices, my husband's idea of seasonings are salt and pepper, and supper is served. :)

Margarita Guacamole with Lime Tortilla Chips #GuacSquad12

What goes together better than Guacamole and Margaritas? Nothing, unless you combine the two together! Guac gets a shot of Tequila and a touch of sweetness, for a fun and tasty Margarita Guacamole. Combine it with my homemade Lime Tortilla Chips, and we're talking a fiesta!

Last week I told you about a fun and tasty event I would be participating in, and today I get to share the yummy recipe I made for #GuacSquad12! Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla, gathered together a dozen bloggers, to show just how versatile one of our favorite snack foods, guacamole, is. So far we've had delicious versions such as Mole Guac with Plantain Chips, Roasted Peach Guacamole with Homemade Crackers, and Italian Guacamole with Herb Tortilla Chips. Today it's my turn, and I'm sharing two of my favorite snack-time indulgences, guac and margaritas. I combined them to make one tasty Margarita Guacamole, served with homemade Lime Tortilla Chips!
