My husband built this beautiful planter for raspberries in our backyard last summer.

My oldest is always asking to make gingerbread houses. Instead of cake for his 8th birthday, we made gingerbread houses. I have a great cut out for a gingerbread house, but we are far more likely to go with graham cracker houses.

Camping with little kids is no picnic!
This picture was from 2 years ago when we went for a 5 week camping trip to the west coast and back with our five children- our youngest was 5 months old.
So I know camping season is pretty much over, but I thought I'd better put in some tips here while I was thinking of it.

A friend of mine gave me a bucket of apples. They were beautiful rosy little apples. It was time consuming to cut and core them all because they were so small, but it was so worth it.
I successfully made three bags of applesauce and a pie with two thirds of the bucket and finished off the rest of the bucket with two more bags of applesauce and another pie two days later.

Our family loves sushi! When my husband and I were newly married we had some friends who taught me how to make my own and I am so grateful because it has become a staple in our house. My kids have even told me how much they prefer my homemade sushi to the sushi we've had in restaurants and I'm glad because it is so much cheaper, but it totally is not anything super complicated or extravagant.
