Hamburger Pie

This may sound like a weird dish but it is one of my family's favorites. We use grass fed, organic ground beef and a farm fresh egg to ensure the best quality.  I like to make several at a time and freeze two or three.  When I’m ready to make them later I just let them thaw first, then bake as usual.  You can use any biscuit recipe or try Kristin’s Kitchen biscuits made with organic ingredients.

Cool way to Reuse Plastic bags

A quick Google search proves there are lots of ways to reuse your plastic grocery sacks.  From using them as trash bags, to things as creative as melting them to make jewelry, why throw them away?  If you are like me, even though you might have reusable cloth grocery sacks, you still end up with piles of those plastic bags from the times you left your bags at home or in the car.  Here is a fun way I came up with to use them as "wet bags" for things like diapers and swim suits.  I do eventually throw them away but at least they get one more good use out of them!

So gather all your plastic bags and your empty diaper wipe containers and check it out.  I've put together pictures to show each step.  It's simply folding up your bags and placing them in your container.  I was able to get 10 bags in my old Huggies container.

And there you have it!  Perfect for throwing in your diaper bag.  Or maybe your car for trash...

Pizza Pinwheels

When you are looking for a quick party snack, these are perfect!  A few weeks ago we were invited to a party and everyone was to bring something to munch on.  Living in the mountains, we try to use what we have on hand instead of making the drive to the grocery store 40 minutes round trip out of the way.  I pretty much always keep pizza ingredients on hand.  My business sells pizza crust mix - which is available here, by the way, at my Esty Shop!  And I have learned to keep a steady supply of cheese and hand canned pizza sauce.
