I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Hot Spiced Citrus Apple Cider

One of my favorite things about fall and winter is Hot Cider. Many times I just grab a cup and heat up the cider in the microwave, but special occasions call for something a bit more, well, special. We go through the most amount of cider between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hot Cider simmering on...

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

For years, when I roasted pumpkin seeds, I took them out of the pumpkin, washed them, added a sprinkle of salt and tossed them in the oven. They were good, but they were never great. Last year for Thanksgiving I tried, for the first time to brine my turkey, soaking it in salt overnight....
