This week has really had that typical March wild temperature swings for us. We’ve gone from almost Spring like to right back into the deep freeze.

We were snowed in for 3 days after the Blizzard of 2013 dumped upwards of 3 feet of snow across Long Island. To say we weren’t ready for it is an understatement. With the plows not moving and no relief in sight we set out to see if you could make biscuits with pancake mix. Read More. . .
Blog of the Week!
Jennifer from Are We Crazy or What? wrote a great how-to about sprouting seeds. I’ve never tried it before but after reading her blog, I’m inspired to! It seems like a great way to get the fresh healthy food that everyone craves during the long cold winter or in an emergency situation.
