Gluten Free Shortcake

Sorry, I didn't share this earlier during strawberry season, but I'm making fresh peach shortcake today with some incredible white peaches I snagged at the farm this week. This is a yummy gluten free shortcake recipe that makes little sponge-like shortcakes. Very light. Good flavor.

Book review: A Hummingbird in My House: The Story of Squeak

I enjoyed reading about Arnette's adventure in caring for a stranded hummingbird. Squeak lived in her sunroom for an entire winter, and she did a fantastic job caring for him, as well as documenting and photographing his stay. At just 116 pages, this book is a short and easy read that I would recommend to anyone with an interest in hummingbirds. I can't wait to get some more hummingbird-friendly plants into the garden. :^)

Homestead Blessings Giveaway

The new website Raising Homemakers is giving away a 10 DVD set of Homestead Blessings from Franklin Springs Media. There are some serious skills to be learned from this set!

This Raising Homemakers site looks very promising to me. They plan to have a weekly link up for Doorpost's Polished Cornerstones, which I'd been hoping to start with my girls this year.

Franklin Springs Media has the most tempting selection of family DVDs - I pretty much want all of them.

Here's a sneak peak of this set.

So go here and enter to win.
