These Bison Stuffed Tacos Shells are sure to be a family favorite!
We were first introduced to the recipe as a potluck dish at our church. We’ve since added and adapted to make it the perfect fit for our taste buds. They never last long at our house.
- 1 pound ground bison (or grass-fed beef)
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground oregano
- jumbo pasta shells
- 4 oz. cream cheese
- grated cheese (cheddar and pepper jack are great options)
This scarf whips up in just a few hours and it feels SO light and fluffy on your neck…like wearing a warm cloud.
It is a simple pattern I dreamed up one day and loved the results! Using the Faggot Stitch (K1, YO, K2og), the scarf is worked in multiples of 3 plus 4. This is one of my absolute favorite knit stitches!
Using size 11 needles and worsted weight yarn:
Cast On 13
Row 1: K13
Row 2: K2, *K1,YO, K2tog* repeat until 2 stitches left, K2
Rows 3+: Repeat Row 2 until you reach your desired leng...
Looking for a fun weekend project? Well, look no further! This baby hat is the perfect weekend craft! It doesn’t work up as quickly as the average baby beanie, but is still quick enough to enjoyably finish in a weekend.
Making this hat was surprising. Even though I knew it should be long, because I hadn’t seen pictures of it with a baby, it just never processed correctly.
So, here you go...
Our oldest daughter absolutely loves to play dress-up!
But, we all know dress-up is WAY more fun with different hair.
So, this is my gift to her.

Start to finish ran me about 45 minutes for the 3-6 month size (the flower added a bit more time, but the hat is darling even without...
Our family is crazy about salads! It seems that we’re continually throwing a ton of items together, adding lettuce and calling it a salad. They’re always delicious too!
Tonight our salad boasted ham steak, baked eggs, and noodles!
We have our family friends to thank for that brilliant addition. I thought they were crazy the first time we went to their home for dinner: noodles in the salad?! As strange as it sounds, the noodles really are great...
To be completely honest, I’ve never been good at hard boiling eggs. I could get the job done when needed, but it was the result of a lot of guessing and even more luck.
Imagine my delight when I learned that you could get “perfect” results time after time by simply baking your eggs in the oven?!
No more cracked eggs, no more boiling water, no more guessing!!!
I preheat the oven to 325°F and separate the eggs into a muffin tin so they don’t roll around...
This pattern worked up very quickly (less than an hour) and had simple, easy to follow instructions. The pictures provided for the one possibly confusing step showed the process well (and removed the possibility for confusion).
Over all, it is a well written pattern and fun to make.
You can find it in four sizes:
I neglected to measure my daughter’s head before starting this project...
We’ve made the decision to cloth diaper our children. And by “we,” I mean that I begged and bribed my husband and enlisted a very persuasive friend to share her cloth diapering experience (and the potential cost savings) with him.
Originally we were going to go with All in 2′s, but in the end we ordered unbleached birdseye flats, four covers, and some pins. All of that cost us less than $100 and should last through the first year assuming that our new princess is a similar size to our first.
The time to gather St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is quickly approaching in this area.
The blossoms are the most potent part of the plant, so you want to gather while it’s in bloom.
St. John’s Wort is easy to identify. When the bright yellow blossoms are pinched between your fingers, a deep red stain is left on your hand. Also, if you pluck a leaf and hold it up to the light, you will be able to see tiny holes throughout the leaf.
When the blossoms are infused into an oil (I use Extra Vi...
