  • With the price of bacon and sausage said to increase within the next few months, making your own bacon will become not only a fun side project, but also a cost cutting tool. 

    The only difficult part about this recipe is having to wait five days for your bacon.

    Although pork belly is sometimes difficult to find at local grocery stores, many will order in pork bellies on special request. 

  • I hope you and your family are enjoying a wonderful holiday week. As we wind down the holidays, and if you have a live cut Christmas tree this year, the question may arise, “What should I do with my Christmas tree?”

    Instead of pitching that tree in the trash, consider recycling it.

    One way to recycle the tree is to use it as a wildlife habitat and spread some holiday cheer to the birds.

    Not only will the birds appreciate the gesture, but a tree in the yard covered with bird-food ornaments brightens the winter landscape.

  • We are now in the midst of the holiday season. I hope that you are enjoying a more relaxed week and will have time for some family activities or time with those special friends.

    Family time is so very important today. Sharing meaningful times together with your children, playing, talking or eating a family meal together can make a difference in their lives.

    These times together strengthen family bonds and create special memories for both you and your children.
