  1. Thanks for hosting Kathy! & thanks for all the help with the chicken stuff. I found the breed I want, and hubby plans to build a coop with a fenced in area around it too. That way they can free range (sort of) all day and we'll coop them up at night. We are planning for next spring. I can keep reading up and I think I'll be an educated chicken owner by then!

    Kathy,
    What a treat to see my arugula pesto focaccia up there! At first I was "oh what a pretty plate" then I realized that's MY pretty plate! I need some tea this morning!

    Today I am NOT linking up a pizza. Instead, I've written an ode to my beloved battered blackened pizza stone, and with it I share a recipe for Roasted Garlic and Herb Pizza dough that I think is even better than TJs dough.

    I'm also sharing a strange but good snack--Maple Teriyaki Salmon Sushi. Because I'm terrible at coming up with clever recipe names, and the link manager won't let me add the whole thing up there, I'll tell you that the "Goodies" I refer to are apples and carrots. They paired great with my leftover salmon for a fast appetizer.

    The last recipe I'm sharing is one of those failures turned into fabulous finds. I ran out of baking powder and tried my hand at yeasted waffles. They came out flat, but edible, so I made waffle sandwiches out of them, using cheeses, vegetables, meats, and jams that I had on hand. We liked it so much that waffle sandwiches are now one of our menu items.

    Thanks for hosting!

  11. Good morning:)
    I just discovered your blog thru another blogger friend and I am really enjoying it!
    I linked 2 posts which I hope are suitable in the "family story" category of the link up as this week I really don't have any DIY crafty posts up.
    I followed you by email and I'm about to grab your button for my sidebar,
    Thx for hosting!

    I am the world's WORST cake decorator, but my cakes cannot be beat in taste! This week I shared a recipe for chocolate ganache frosting, made with coconut oil and no refined sugars. Rich and delicious, the easiest and healthiest chocolate frosting you'll ever make. I also shared a post from my current series on carbohydrates as we work through Nourishing Traditions. Enriched flour is found in a huge variety of both homemade and store-bought baked goods and it's not as healthy as the food industry claims it to be. Read the post to find out what you're REALLY eating. And as always, thank you for hosting!

  27. I love reading your blog. I have been a chicken keeper for 12 years now, but I never grow tired of reading about chickens. I am disappointed though, that so many of these contests require facebook, pinterest or twitter accounts in order to enter. Why is that? I have a feeling it has something to do with the blogs earning money, which is very sad. Be that as it may, I will not ever have a facebook, twitter or pinterest account, so I guess I and those who share my opinions, will just be left out in the cold.

  28. This is my first time having chickens, so its a new experience for me so I'm gonna be reading a lot on here to learn what I can do to save money

    I really need to win this one. I have chicks coming in June and I'm not going to want to leave my house if I have to use a heat lamp set up. We lost our farm & everything in it to fire in 2005 and I'm truly terrified to have to use a less than perfectly safe heat source for the chicks.

    so great to find a product that lessens the fear of fire

    I would soooo love to have a Brisnea EcoGlow! It would definitely be better for the chicks and I don't have to worry about burning down the house or the chicks! I have chicks and ducklings getting ready to hatch soon!!!

    Oh, man... a Brinsea Brooder would be awesooooome! Just hatched out our second and final batch of heritage turkeys for the year, and are ready to move on to more chickens. This has been *such* a fun project for our homeschooling family! Started with mealworms (bird gourmet snack), then chicks, then poults... three years later, they're no where near tired of it yet. Love it!
