I wanted to fix something that would come together quick for dinner tonight and I decided on pizza. I could have gone with real quick and popped in a frozen pizza, but I wanted to fix my family a homemade dinner. I've been making homemade pizza for several years now, but I just recently started … Continue reading Homemade Cast Iron Skillet Pizza
Well, I'm really bummed! I was looking over my website today and noticed that so many of my photos were missing. I thought maybe it was just my computer so I grabbed the hubby's phone and pulled up the site and they were still gone... I did some research and learned that when you delete … Continue reading WordPress Blog & Photos
We received two of the apple trees that we ordered! The Honey Crisp & Jonathon trees arrived on Saturday. We discussed again the best place to plant them and set to it tonight.
