A Family Friendly Challenge So my girls have been asking me for jello for quite some time now.  I will not buy the junk at the grocery stores because it is made from gelatin that is clearly not from a grass fed source and it has a ton of sugar and artificial flavors and coloring in them.   So this week when I asked my girls what they wanted to do for Family Friendly Fridays, they all said jello mama!…

Sun Dried Tomatoes

There is nothing that I love more than heading out to my garden and picking these super sweet cherry tomatoes!  I have really never been a fan of them until I started to grow them myself.  Oh my goodness there is no comparison to store bought.  I grow sweet 100′s and they produce these beautiful miniature tomatoes that are so sweet it taste like I am having some candy (well maybe not that sweet  :lol:).  This year I grew yellow…

I love, love, love sweet potatoes!  One of my favorite ways to enjoy them are when they are sweet potatoes chips.  I searched high and low for a good sweet potato chip and although they are out there, they are usually filled with some form of bad oils or other harmful ingredients.  So today I am going to show you how I dehydrate my sweet potatoes into chips.  This recipe came from my dear friend Debbie who always throws me…
