    Here’s our plan! I’m not going to be using the oven this week–it’s too hot! But we’ll be using the crockpot, our bread maker, and the grill outside! :)

    I wanted to request some help. I have been put on a diet where I can only have 20 grams of carbs a day. I am at a loss for a menu and recipes. I would love to try to make homemade products but have to also keep it within my budget of $50/week for 3 people. Is this doable?–such a challenge! Thanks for all your help

    Was wondering if you had tasted the oatmeal packets yet? Were they just as good? Wondering because my kids love oatmeal, I tried the slow cooker oatmeal and it was a huge flop. So I thought I would try this. Thanks in advance for the feedback. :)

      Yes, after extensive allergy testing, we are so grateful to have gotten to the root of some of the issues here and to be seeing major, major progress. We are so thankful!
