Dubliner Potatoes {A Recipe}

posted in: homeschool, Recipe, thoughts | 0

This potato dish is another family favorite and while adapted from another recipe, the addition of the Dubliner cheese really sets this side dish apart from others. We enjoy it through out the year with special meals; steak or ham usually as well as it being a holiday tradition. I always buy my Dubliner cheese at Costco since it is much more reasonably priced there than most grocery stores and we like a fair amount of the cheese on top!

Prep Time
20 min
Ingredients
  1. 6 cups potatoes, sliced as directed below (this is usually 4-6 large potatoes, but it varies);
  2. 2 TB butter;
  3. 1-1/2 cups Heavy Cream (you can sub with half and half, if you must, but nothing else 'lighter" will work as well!);
  4. 1/2 cup whole milk;
  5. 2 TB flour (to thicken... arrowroot, etc can be subbed);
  6. 4 cloves garlic, minced;
  7. 1 tsp salt;
  8. pepper, to taste;
  9. 1-3 cups Dubliner Cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees;
  2. Smear softened butter all over bottom of baking dish, I use a 9" square dish, but anything around that size works fine (Pam works too, but the butter works better);
  3. Slice potatoes into rounds and then cut slices into fourths;
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together cream, milk, flour, garlic, salt and pepper;
  5. Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish. Pour 1/3 of the cream mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle a bit of cheese on;
  6. Repeat this two more times, ending with cream mixture and NO cheese (see below);
  7. Cover with foil and bake till potatoes are soft and bubbling;
  8. Remove foil and add remaining grated cheese to top, return to oven and make until cheese is melted, bubbly and starting to brown slightly;
  9. Let sit about 5 minutes before serving hot.
Notes
  1. I use a good 3 cups of Dubliner cheese - around a cup inside the casserole and another 2 cups when added later to the top..... if you are using less cheese, either omit adding inside the casserole and use all on top of dish or adjust the amounts accordingly to your cheese.
  2. I have baked this at lower temps along side a roast or such, it works, but allow longer bake time.... I have let the potatoes bake upwards of 2 hours on a low temp before they were done and added the cheese just before serving.
  3. If you don't use the heavy cream and whole milk, it just doesn't absorb and cook right.... trust me, I have tried it. More than once. It needs the heavy cream. Really truly.
  4. If you happen to have leftovers, these are excellent warmed up and scrambled into eggs..... like really good. Worth making a full dish just to have leftovers.

Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2016!

posted in: Fit2B, homeschool, Reviews, Sales & giveaways | 0

 

 


Do you ever feel overwhelmed by healthy living?

It’s not that you don’t understand or agree with why it matters. You’re sold on the merits of eating whole foods, raising healthier kids, avoiding toxins and chemicals, getting fit, and using alternative remedies.

But sometimes it’s a whole lot easier to say than to actually do, right? Believe me, I’ve had the same struggles and questions as you. What on earth do you eat (and especially, what do you feed your kids)? How do you afford to buy healthier products? And where do you find the time to make and do all this stuff?

I know what it’s like to feel that healthy living shouldn’t be this hard, and it shouldn’t have to cost so much, either! Don’t you ever wish someone would just tell you exactly what you need to know and how to make these changes for less?

Because when you have the right info and tools at your fingertips, it all comes together so much more easily.

You know what to cook for your family. You’re more confident in choosing natural alternatives. You find ways to save money without comprising on what’s important to you.

You learn to replace store-bought products with DIY options that actually work and are easy to make. You feel better (and even look better, too). Healthy living becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.

That’s why Stephanie and her team have put together the popular Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle for the fifth year in a row (hurray!). They’re amazed at how many families are saying “yes!” to their health (over 64,000 and counting!) and taking them up on this super short opportunity to get a complete library of natural living resources for one teeny tiny price.

You sort of need to see it to believe it, but the package includes 83 digital products and it’s worth over $2,400!

{uh yeah, seriously….. I was very impressed by the line-up of books in this bundle…. there are many gluten free and paleo resources as well as a brand new e-course from one of my favorite-ist people on earth, Beth from Fit2B!}

  • For the cost of a small bag of groceries, you’ll get a complete healthy living library to help you:
  • prepare whole & delicious real food
  • get the toxins out of your house for good
  • understand and use natural remedies
  • breathe new life into your exercise habits
  • learn about important women’s health issues
  • raise exceptionally healthy kids in an unhealthy world
  • plus learn about gardening & homesteading, meal planning, weight loss and so much more!

Plus, it comes with over $250 worth of bonus offers including:

1. Bloom Naturals – $15 gift certificate toward any product ($15 value)
2. Perfect Supplements – $15 gift certificate toward any Perfect Brand product ($15 value)
3. TriLight Health – $15 off select TriLight products ($15 value)

12. Meal Garden – 6 months of Meal Garden FREE (value $35.70)

Besides being so incredibly helpful and inspiring, one of the things I like best about the bundle is the price. By offering the bundle for a short time only, they’re able to give you access to over $2,400 worth of high-quality eBooks, eCourses and printables for a whopping 98% off!

Here’s how it works:
Visit their website, take a quick look at all the goodness that comes in this package, then click the green “Buy now!” button to go through their simple and secure 3-step checkout process.

You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks, signing up for your eCourses, and redeeming your free bonus offers.

Use their Getting Started Guide to pick the topic you want to tackle first and start making healthy changes!

{even if you just download a couple of the items, you will have paid for the bundle….. plus the freebies make great gifts and you may gift any e-books or courses you are not going to use, just send them as a gift and then delete off your computer!}

The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just six days! After Monday night, September 26th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

It’s even backed by a full money-back happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you.

No one should have to put off a healthier lifestyle because it costs too much or they can’t get the help they need.

Our family has felt so much better by making changes to the way we eat, the products we use, and how we take care of ourselves. It’s made all the difference in the world and I want the same for you.

Get what you need for your healthy lifestyle. Learn more or get your bundle HERE.

(Psst… the bundle goes away at 11:59pm Eastern on Monday, September 26th, so don’t wait!)

Lifestyle Learning

_Think Outside the Classroom_

It’s a little book with a pretty aqua and cream cover. A short read, only 56 pages long. But, as you read it, prepare to be encouraged, strengthened and renewed in your homeschooling vision and direction. Think cover 1

I don’t know that I read anything new to my brain personally, {however, if you follow a strict “school classroom at home” format, you may be greatly challenged by some new concepts!} but I was so encouraged as I read through the book one evening because as Kelly shared her family’s approach to their home-school, I found myself agreeing. Those truths I knew in my brain and heart Kelly was able to articulate in writing. Those dreams and goals I have for my children, those ‘end results’ I desire to have in our own home-school, Kelly and her family were using and achieving. 

Kelly Crawford is a lady I greatly admire and consider one who is worthy of offering advice, truth and encouragement into my life. Though I have never met her in person, her blog posts and the life she lives has shown me that she is a mama ahead of me on a similar journey, a mama of many children, a mama who has “graduated” several of them and so I know the words she speaks come from not only Godly wisdom but practical life experiences too.  Her other book “When Motherhood Feels Too Hard” is one I keep near and have read through often over the last few years.

A Lifestyle of Learning(1)

I would encourage any homeschooling mama to pick up a copy of this book and read it through. The concept of “Lifestyle of Learning” is so key, I believe, to a quality education. That concept that we are teaching our children to not just recite facts and figures back to us but rather teaching them how to learn, how to find answers to their questions, how to think and how to articulate clearly their own thoughts. Kelly includes in this book not only a concept and style of learning, but practical ways to implement this in your own home.

 

“With life-learning, there is no start of finish, no taking off, no being behind….. just a constant readiness to learn something else.” ~ Kelly Crawford

 

This short phrase sums up so well this book “Think Outside the Classroom”, a desire to teach our children to learn, to view each day and each moment as an opportunity to learn and grow. A lifestyle, that once mastered in the childhood years will carry on throughout their lives, well preparing them for their lives ahead.

Taking Care of Me

Self 6

I lay in bed this morning, it was still early, my body woke me up on autopilot since our normal rising time is around 5 am. But today is Saturday and my mind starts rolling through my ‘to-do’ list and what I ought to get up and start doing, but instead I force myself to slow down, turn down the thoughts and go back to sleep. Am I being a ‘lazy’ wife by not following my husband out of bed and get moving on our day? NO! Not today – there is a place where I do need to get up and get going – but today, knowing the day, knowing our schedule, I knew taking care of me and giving myself an extra couple hours of sleep was the best thing I could do for my husband {and children}. Because I love him, I am choosing to take care of me so I can better serve and care for him.

Don’t miss the Healthy Living Bundle!

WP_20131112_002
Don’t you wish you had affordable short-cuts to make healthy living easier? Are you tired of trying to make a Whole Foods lifestyle work on a Trader Joe’s budget?

I get it. You want the best for your family. You want to raise healthy kids, have strong immune systems, be more fit and energetic, and be intentional about creating a natural home, but sometimes it just feels so hard.

There’s a lot to learn and the internet can be more than a little overwhelming at times.

I know what it’s like to feel that healthy living shouldn’t be this difficult, and it shouldn’t have to cost so much, either! Don’t you ever wish someone would just tell you exactly what you need to know and how to make these changes for less?

When you have the right info and tools at your fingertips, it all comes together so much more easily. You know what to cook for your family. You’re more confident in choosing natural alternatives. You can easily replace store-bought products with DIY options that really work. You feel better (and even look better, too). Healthy living becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.

That’s why Stephanie and her team have put together the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle for the fourth year in a row. Each year, they’re amazed at how many families are saying “yes!” to their health and taking them up on this super short opportunity to get a complete collection of natural-living resources for a crazy low price.

You sort of need to see it to believe it, but the package includes over 90 digital products on topics like natural remedies, essential oils, real food recipes, paleo & allergy-friendly eating, fitness & weight loss and much more. All together, it’s worth over $1900!

Plus, it comes with $225 worth of bonus products including:

  • ePantry – FREE hand soap + $8 credit on one shipment, FREE dish soap + $8 credit on the next shipment, AND 60-day VIP access with FREE shipping ($30 value)
  • Plant Therapy – Lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oil set ($22.92 value)
  • NaturOli – FREE travel essentials facial set: deep conditioning facial wash (1 oz.), new radiance facial creme (1 oz.), exfoliating walnut scrub (1 oz.) ($16.95 value)
  • Bloom Naturals – FREE SPOT treatment for acne & eczema OR a $15 gift certificate toward Bloom Naturals products ($15 value)
  • Lexie Naturals – FREE natural care gift set: lip balm (.15 oz.), lotion tube (1 oz.) and trial-size deodorant (.35 oz.) ($15 value)
  • Perfect Supplements – $15 gift certificate toward any Perfect Brand product ($15 value)
  • Strawesome – $15 gift certificate toward the straws and accessories of your choice ($15 value)
  • TriLight Health – FREE 2-oz liquid herbal formula or $15 off larger bottles ($15 value)
  • Craftsy – 1 FREE online class ($44.99 value)
  • Once a Month Meals – $32 toward OAMM membership + a free mini menu ($35 value)

Besides being so incredibly helpful and inspiring, one of the things I like best about the bundle is the price. By offering the bundle for a short time only, they’re able to give you access to over $2000 worth of amazing products for a whopping 97% off!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Visit their website, take a quick look at all the goodness that comes in this package, then click “Get my copy now!” to go through their simple 3-step checkout process.
  2. You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks, signing up for your eCourses, and redeeming your free bonus products.
  3. Use their Getting Started Interactive Guides to pick the area you want to tackle first and start making healthy changes!

The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just 6 days! After Monday night, September 14th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

I’d hate for you to miss out, so click HERE to learn more or buy the bundle.

It’s even backed by a full 30-day guarantee, so you can know for sure that it’s right for you.

heart and mouth

 

What a simple statement this is…. “Her mouth speaks from that which fills her heart”….. but as you think through and process those words and the implications behind them; oh what conviction it brings and yet encouragement as well. As a mama to little ones, many little ones or busy and challenging ones, we know firsthand this is a true statement. We may not like it some days; those days when exhaustion is all we can “speak”, when the tired and worn is what comes out, when the frustrations with life around us is so evident in our words and actions. We long to be that mama, with sweet and encouraging words ready for the right moment, with quiet and peaceful countenance, the joyful heart and smile but I know, and I suspect I am not alone here, that this is hard, this is an ever-challenging aspect of motherhood. However, the more we can immerse ourselves in God’s Word and allow Him to direct our thoughts, our hearts, our minds; the more this will show in our words and actions……

Beach kids 02
I love this photo from a few weeks ago….all my children up at the lake….that moment in time captured so well!


One of the thoughts that creeps into my mind frequently is, “Why couldn’t I capture that moment in time perfectly?” That beautiful sunset witnessed on a perfect vacation. My child’s first belly laugh. The expression of joy on my father’s face at his surprise party. I don’t want to forget any of it.

It’s SO important to savor it all… to relish those moments. But you know what’s equally important, if you ask me? To be able to look back and relish those moments all over again. A month from now. A year from now. Fifty years from now.

And that’s where photographs come in. These days, it’s so easy to get snap-happy at a moment’s notice: we just reach into our purses for our smartphones or miniscule cameras and start clicking away at anything and everything.akx_uWJAAoc25Iiw5gBHnXQusWI5TG2D47C_xXOe3gA

The problem is… it’s so easy for those photos to come out badly! You think you’ve taken a wonderful picture of your beautiful boy standing by himself for the first time, but actually you’ve managed to capture the moment when he falls down and starts wailing! You think you’ve snapped a stunning image of a horse galloping along the beach, but actually it’s just a dark blob against an overexposed background. You think you’ve achieved the perfect shot of your wonderful parents laughing together on their anniversary, but you take a look and you’ve managed to capture… a blur.

If you can relate, I have good news for you! My friends Ryan and Steph at Ultimate Bundles have put together an incredible product to help with your photography woes. It’s called The Ultimate Digital Photography Bundle (Beginner’s Edition), and it contains a curated collection of ebooks and video training guides to help you become a better photographer.

All the resources have been provided by professional, world-renowned photographers who are experts in teaching others – even complete beginners. You won’t need to switch up to a more expensive camera to make full use of the bundle (even if you just use your iPhone for photographs), and you don’t need to neglect your family for weeks upon weeks of training! You can learn everything in little chunks – whenever you have a spare moment.

Click here to see the full range of ebooks and training courses included in The Ultimate Photography Bundle (Beginner’s Edition).

There’s even better news! Everything in the bundle has a combined total value of $555, but for this week only, The Ultimate Bundles Team is selling the entire bundle for just $37 – a discount of more than 90%! What’s more, they’re also throwing in a FREE copy of FX Photo Studio Pro software from MacPhun (which provides stunning filters and photography effects) worth $29.99!

Click here to buy The Ultimate Digital Photography Bundle (Beginner’s Edition) for just $37.

No blurriness, no exposure nightmares, no bad angles. Just perfect, happy memories!

 

 

When you click to buy the bundle, there are 3 different levels you can choose from, while I have chosen to feature the beginners bundle which was created for families and those wanting improve their day-to-day photo opportunities, if you are a photography junkie, you may wish to check out the other options as well! You may click these photos below to find out more about the different bundles!

A motherhood life…..

posted in: gracewords, Sales & giveaways, thoughts | 0

 

Life is short
Life is short

This is one of my favorite quotes…it just sums up so well the “life of motherhood” – Mothering isn’t just a job or title, mother is both a noun and a verb. It’s a lifestyle. Once you enter this path you are on it for life! So many days, that first line runs thru my brain – my life – and the childhood days – and so short. And there are so many duties a mother is responsible for, so little, some big. But you know what, hang on sweet mama, we are working for a heavenly reward not on here on earth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And check out the contents of the bundle below – it’s only on sale thru Monday, the 27th, but it is chock full of books, courses and things that can make your life a little simpler – sometimes it the little changes we make that make the biggest difference!

every mom needs a little encouragement…..

mundane faithfulness 2

One of my biggest goals with this website is encouraging moms. As a mom myself, of ‘many little ones’, I know first hand how hard it is to not only find the balance of being a wife, a mother, a teacher-at-home and a homemaker and upon finding a bit of that balance, actually finding the time to do it all! My heart as a wife, mother, teacher and homemaker is do it well, do what I need to do, to raise my children well and love them and husband well – and make sure everyone has clean underwear on a regular basis 😉 I want to be faithful in all I do, faithful in the little things like laundry and dishes, faithful in the big things like instructing my children and being a wife to my husband. The days are often mundane in their constant repetitiveness of daily life but the tasks and things we accomplish will last for eternity.


Over the last 10 years or so in this journey I have personally been encouraged and “spurred on to good works” by many ladies and various books, blog posts and real life relationships. I have really appreciated the concept of the Ultimate Bundles – a entire of library touching on a variety of subjects running the whole gammet of life as a homemaker. As I look through the list of the titles there is usually one or two items in there that I have seen and wanted to read – and when priced by themselves, well I can buy the entire bundle for almost the same and get ALL 100 books, audio files and e courses for an incredibly reasonable price.

 

 

My Buttered Life has wonderful DIY lotions and such….very fun and easy to do!

I love this style of book to go along with whatever Bible Study
I am currently doing in my quiet times…..

I always love new recipes!
The Grace Filled Journey to Real Food is first on my list in this category!
I am so not thinking the Christmas season yet….
but hey, it’ll be nice to have them downloaded and ready come December
when I realize I should have planned something! 😉
There’s a few books here I am excited about; the Write thru the Bible I have seen wonderful reviews on it recently and am looking forward to trying it out with my boys….also interested in the Year Round Homeschooling since I am somewhat moving that direction and of course, Large Family anything is pretty applicable around here 😉
I’ve been enjoying some other reading by the Young’s and
would love to read this book on marriage by them!
the book ‘From Grouchy to Great” is wonderful book….I’d highly recommend!

 

I love printables and can’t wait to see what these look like…fun selection!

I am looking forward to reading the Simply Dressed book….!

 

the freebies are one of my favorites parts of the bundles – it makes for wonderful, meaningful – and inexpensive – gifts 😉

I was so incredibly thrilled to see Fit2B again joining in with this Bundle. I have so loved and appreciated their workouts, education and heart for moms. (You can read my testimony here!) With the purchase of this Bundle you will get their “14 days to a Better Neck” course absolutely free! Plus, you get all these other freebies as well 😉
