Grab Your Ultimate Homemaking Bundle While You Can!

Dear Homemaker,

Are the inmates running the asylum?

I hear you. Sometimes I look around my house and wonder how things got so out of hand.

When I was a little girl, I dreamed about getting married, becoming a mommy, and having my own home.

I imagined a home that was more than just 4 walls, a roof, and a mortgage.

I wanted to make a special place that was a magical mash-up of:

  • a school,
  • a playground,
  • a refuge,
  • a boo-boo “fix it” station,
  • a “you can do it” pep rally, and
  • a safe place for personal expression, sharing and growth.

And then real life happened…

I moved to Mexico becoming a laundry lady and a dorm mama for 16 deaf girls…learning a couple new languages, 500 miles from home, dying a teenage boys pants pink when I mixed colors while washing….cooking for 100, teaching 5 year olds to tie their shoes, learning new traditions, 10 kids and two dorm mama’s with high fevers, headaches…sniffles, tears, lots of love…a move back to the US, “empty nester” in my late 20s, new dreams…and hopes of running my own business from home.

And that’s why Erin and Stephanie created the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle… because as rewarding as it is, homemaking is hard work and it doesn’t always come easily.

I can’t wait to tell you all about it!

To help you nurture the beauty and productivity in your home and family relationships with proven, simple, and effective tools that really give you a boost as a homemaker – help, inspiration, tips, encouragement, resources at your fingertips…

What’s in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle?

Are there too many books in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle?

Let me ask you a question.

Have you ever taken your family out for a buffet dinner… and then been disappointed when you couldn’t eat every single morsel on display?

Of course not!

Sure. There’s that first, breath-taking moment when you see and hear and smell the amazing meal spread before you… and you think, “Where will I even start?”

But that’s the thing… because you do start… with something.

Maybe it’s a tender flaky biscuit, or a piece of delicious roast beef, or maybe you’re like me and start with a piece of pie (mmm, blueberry or apple with whipped cream)?

So relax, enjoy, and start anywhere you like. Come back to the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle “buffet” as many times as you like. It’s all here for you.

If you are single gal waiting for the hope of marriage and children some day, if you are single gal 100% fine with being single this bundle is still for you. I’ve been blessed by so many resources in the past couple homemaking bundle.

Since this is a “buffet” of books it’s okay to pass on the ones that don’t apply to you and dig in to the ones that do.

Is the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle worth it?

In a word… yes!

To be absolutely certain, Erin and Stephanie asked questions, tried techniques and just about drove themselves crazy making sure that the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle was the very best homemaking resource anywhere.

They dug through hundreds of websites and connected with dozens of authors and teachers.

And then we all worked together to make these resources the most affordable possible.

And They Were Delighted to Help…

The result? This collection is a fraction of the price of what someone would pay for each resource individually!

For a short time, the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle… a complete library of:

  • 76 eBooks
  • 6 eCourses
  • 1 audio download
  • 2 online conferences, and
  • 14 printable packs

…99 carefully selected resources designed to help you nurture the beauty and productivity in your home and family relationships… is only $29.97. (A total value of $984.74.)

That breaks down to 30 cents per book.

Now It’s Your Turn

I think Laura Ingalls Wilder said it best…

“Just as a little thread of gold, running through a fabric, brightens the whole garment, so women’s work at home, while only the doing of little things, is just like the golden gleam of sunlight that runs through and brightens the whole fabric of civilization.”

On Life, Dishes, and the Frog in My Sink

Dirty dishes piled in kitchen sink, close-up

So, I had a frog sitting in my sink one day. The next day there was three…thankfully there weren’t five the following day. Lovely sight when you go to wash the dishes that have been sitting in the sink all day don’t you think?

There are few things that gross my out but tiny frogs in my sink did the trick, that and the crocodile lizard that was chilling on the counter a different day. I just LOVE reptiles and amphibians in my kitchen sink said no one ever, unless they were prepping frog legs I guess but who really does that at home?

My Frogs

In my old home the kitchen was in the lean-to/mud room, which meant critters loved to find their way in. If you want a tour of my old kitchen be sure to check out this video.

The solution would have been to stay on top of the dishes and my friends would only be hanging out in an empty sink. Back then I was a dorm mama for many and sometimes dishes didn’t get done when they should have.

Now I try to stay on top of things and either wash the dishes after each meal or put them in the dish washer. Thank the Lord for that invention! You can totally live without one, I did for 10 years but it is a thing of beauty, especially when you have a full plate and really what woman doesn’t?

Focusing on your kitchen sink being empty after every meal (or snack) leaves your kitchen clean(er) and allows your sink to receive the dishes from the next meal. Another great thing to try to do is clean as you prep a meal. That is the #1 tip my mom taught us growing up. That way you are not left overwhelmed by the overflowing sink once dinner is over.

Dishes are just one of many things that leave the homemaker (or single gal) feeling overwhelmed. Other things like laundry and what is the world are you going to fix for dinner while the kiddos are trying to climb up your legs or ask a “Mommy, can I?” question for the one millionth time in the last hour can leave you frazzled as well.

If you are stressed-out homemaker there is no need to stay feeling overwhelmed!

Homemade Whipped Cream Recipes

Whipped Cream Recipes-

White, fluffy peaks of slightly sweet cream-the perfect whipped cream. What is not to love about this humble treat? It is just what you need to top a mug of steaming hot chocolate, fresh fruit, or a piece of pie.

You could buy pre-whipped “creams” in the frozen section of the store or in a canister but when you can have a batch of fresh real whipped cream ready in 7 minutes or less why would you even bother? Growing up I didn’t realize that you could make your own whipped cream until one day I watched my best friend’s grandma make a batch. Since then I have been hooked!

I have a slight addiction to whipped cream. It is so exciting to create new flavors and variations like, lemonchocolate, and maple vanilla. (Not a bit of a nerd right?) Whipped cream is a fun treat any time of year. It makes a simple dessert extraordinary. Guess whose friends and family will be impressed next time you serve them dessert? That’s right, yours will!

Learn how at Little House Living where I am guest posting today!

Are you worn out by homemaking? Do you wake up to piles of laundry and dirty dishes? Be sure check out this mini FREE ecourse that is avialible for this week only!


Spicy Chocolate Headache Paste

Spicy Chocolate Headache Paste-

Do you suffer from headaches? Yes? Me too. I have been there more times than I can count.

When we get headaches it is a natural response to pop a pill a move on with the day. Unfortunately pain pills are horrible for your body. If you are anything like me you can’t continue on with the day without treating the headache which can quickly become a migraine.

A couple of summers ago I visited my good friend Serafina when she was a teacher the school run by mutual friends of ours near Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexcio. She had a throbbing headache that would not go away. There was classes to teach, lice to pick, errands to run and a tea party to bake for. Her headache staying around was not an option. Plus she needed to hang out with me right?

I decided to whip up a batch of my “spicy chocolate” that I had been making since that past spring to treat my own headaches.

Join me at A Gypsy Herbal to learn how to make my spicy chocolate headache paste!

Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties

Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage Paties

Breakfast sausage, what’s not to love about it? If it comes from the store there is generally plenty of reasons to not. Many contain fillers, MGS, and corn syrup. There are some decent brands out there but they have a pricy tag. Homemade breakfast sausage patties are so simple and less expensive to make that there are few reasons to hand over hard-earned cash for the ones from the store.

If you missed the confession a couple of months ago I’ll clue you in, I love sausage! There are few forms that I have yet to meet that I didn’t like. If you don’t want breakfast patties, these breakfast sausage crumbles with help you say goodbye to your favourite tube verities. It is amazing in gravy!

These sausage patties have a slight hint of maple from the syrup and just the right balance of savory from the dried sage and unrefined salt. For me it’s the perfect sausage. Many recipes call for more spice but for these breakfast sausage patties I like to keep it simple.

I’ve been making these homemade turkey breakfast sausage patties for years now. They are my go to for quick and tasty protein in the morning which is vital in my book.  They can be added to a homemade sourdough biscuit or English muffin for quick on the go meal or paired with eggs and hash browns for a lazy morning at home.

My personal favourite way to eat these simple homemade turkey breakfast sausage patties is sandwiched in an English muffin with lots of butter and a fried egg. If you are looking for more ideas to serve them with I LOVE my friend Red and Honey’s The Breakfast Revolution ebook!

The Breakfast Revolution

Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties
  • 1 lb ground chicken, turkey or pork
  • 2 TBS coconut oil or lard
  • 2 TBS maple syrup
  • 2 tsp ground sage
  • 1 tsp unrefined salt
  • ¾ tsp black pepper
  1. In a bowl mix the ground meat, salt, pepper, sage and maple syrup.
  2. Form into patties size of your choice. I use about 2 tablespoons of meat, pressed to about ¼ inch thick.
  3. Heat the fat of choice in a skillet. Add as many sausage patties as you can fit comfortably in the skillet.
  4. Cook for about 3 minutes per side. Be sure to check one to ensure that it is completely cooked.
