Homemade Theme--Things I Loved from August 2013



I love homemade foods, beauty products and animal care products. So my homemade theme for this month in a natural choice. I found a lot of good homemade recipes in August, and I can’t wait to share some with you...

Homemade Sausage Recipes


I love homemade sausage recipes! This breakfast sausage recipe from Savory Lotus looks delicious. If you are on GAPS, you can tweak it by using honey instead of maple syrup. 

How to Make Butter


If you want to learn how to make butter, I have found two recipes that look really good. The first is a homemade butter recipe from Naturally Mindful. If you want to use an appliance like a food processor, blender or stand mixer, this one should work well.
