Caring For Cast Iron

Caring For Cast Iron

Cast iron sometimes gets a bad reputation as hard to care for. If you’ve never used a cast iron skillet before, rest assured: once you’ve done a few simple first maintenance steps, cast iron is even easier than caring for a special nonstick coated skillet. Seasoning Before you use your cast iron skillet for the first time, it needs to be seasoned. Seasoning is a process of creating a natural non-stick surface, and it’s very easy.

The Future Of Home Food Production

The Future Of Home Food Production

I was blown away by this invention. It’s called “Farm Bot” and it is probably the future of home food production. While it looks like it might be a little more advanced (and expensive) than the average gardener / hobbyist can handle, it is interesting to see what these inventors were capable of creating. One of the things I really like about it is how it is “open-source”, meaning they give their plans and software away for free. So that others can freely learn from them or contribute to the project. If you want to learn more about Farm Bot, […]

Campsite Chores for Kids

Running your home efficiently takes effort from everyone. In the same way, a campsite is set up and maintained much easier if everyone pitches in.

You don’t have to give up gourmet cooking just because you can’t get a specific type of ingredient. In most cases, there are some easy kitchen substitutes that can result in a lovely meal. While the list of substitutes that could be helpful is endless, here are a few common substitutions that would be handy to have memorized (or at least stuck to the fridge!) […]

Saving Energy On The Homestead

Saving energy, both to ease the burden on your wallet and to contribute to conservation efforts, is a hot topic for many homeowners these days. But when you live in the country or on your own homestead, saving energy can be a little more challenging. Raising animals can often require extra energy, and by doing a lot of things yourself rather than buying pre-made versions, you may have to use more energy. However, by focusing on energy-saving practices, you can still lower your utility bills exponentially, and do your part to help conserve the Earth’s resources and atmosphere. Here are […]
