Homestead Barn Hop #46

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 46th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

I so enjoy visiting your homesteads each and every Monday. Thank you to everyone who has made it a success so far!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with three other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival, Kendra from New Life on a Homestead, and Kelly from The Morris Tribe.

We encourage you to stop by every Monday and share your latest homesteading posts with us. From cooking to animals to gardening, we want to hear what’s been happening at your homestead this week!

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Remember to provide a link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post, if you would like, and use it to link back to us!

2. Please link to a specific post, not your blog’s main page.

3. If you don’t have a blog, share your latest homestead updates in a comment on this post!

4. We, the hosts of the Barn Hop, reserve the right to remove any link that we deem inappropriate or offensive. We will err on the side of caution.

  1. Thanks for hosting. I shared a Fettuccine Alfredo recipe. It’s so yummy! Fresh lemon juice and zest add an extra special flavor to this dish, they help cut the richness too. Thanks again.

  2. This week I’m sharing my GAPS-friendly Spaghetti Squash Bake and Split Pea and Ham Soup, and also a post on how to make your own sauerkraut. Thanks for hosting and have a great week!

  3. Today I’m sharing a frugal and easy recipe for colcannon, an old Irish recipe for smashed potatoes with cabbage, ham/bacon, and butter. It is a very hearty, satisfying meal on a winter day.


  4. Just added my recipe for Probiotic Rich Lemon Poppyseed Dressing. Thank you so much for hosting!

  5. Thanks for hosting, Jill.

    Today I inked up a post titled “In Defense of Dirt and Grime” –
    where I share my “dirty secrets” about being a less than perfect housekeeper, and why I don’t worry too much about germs.

  6. Thanks for hosting! I shared a a post on how to use coconut oil flour.

  7. So many recipes to look at. What a great resource!

  8. I’m a little late to the party but I just found out about it. Where has this blog been all my life? Love everything you offer from the recipes to the chicken coop disinfection tips (don’t have a coop but I’d really like one). Thanks for hosting! I’m now following you in my Google Reader.
