I’m about returning to a time of self-sufficiency before big box stores, processed food, and disposability. A time when families spent time together in the kitchen enjoying food that was grown and raised locally or in their own backyards. Learning how to make do with what you have and not always having to have the latest and greatest. I'm about enjoying the journey of discovering real food and simple household solutions. Even celebrating the failures for they still teach us.
I love to share my recipes and tips for creating a simplified, natural home! I share my simple recipes for all things natural and homemade, such as: laundry soap, all natural lip balm, DIY bug spray, homemade body wash, and much more.
Hi! I am Stephani. I’m so glad you stopped by!
I'm all about cooking with real food, knitting with good yarn, sleeping in (when the kids let me), staying up late to finish that last chapter, DIY projects, eating snickerdoodles and most of all enjoying life and all it's wonders.
I’m married to my husband of 15 years, mom to 2 teenagers and one soon-to-be teen, 2 crazy dogs and one prima donna cat. I live in the middle of nowhere in a place that sees 300 or more inches of snow a season, has the most pristine fresh water lakes anywhere, awe-inspiring Northern Lights, gorgeous sunsets and a population explosion every summer as the tourists come to enjoy the place that I'm lucky enough to call home.
I'm also a full-time business owner of a hand-dyed yarn shop, part-time photographer and a work-at-home, homeschooling mom.
