In case you haven't noticed, I am clearly not a chef. I don't even come close. I actually am not even that crazy about cooking, however I enjoy making my family happy so I cook for them. That is why the recipes I share are pretty simple and no big deal. So please, if you were expecting these awesome fancy dishes you should know right now you won't find them here. The only thing I can maybe boast about with respect to the recipes I share is using fresh foods (homegrown preferably) and trying to keep the rest of the ingredients as healthy and simple as possible!
Being that it is now fall I am sharing my recipe for eggplant parmesan (and tomato sauce since it is needed). I consider this a fall and winter recipe because it requires the oven to bake it. When making it I usually make at least two trays, one to eat and one to freeze for later in the season.
You can click on the recipe cards below or use the button under them to download the pdf file. It will print one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper, preferably cardstock paper. Cut out each of the 4 x 6 inch recipe card and put them in your book! They always come two recipes per sheet in an effort to not waste paper!

Don't want to print them? No worries, just copy them down and enjoy!

I love gardening and believe it or not, unlike many other gardeners, I love having birds of all different kinds visit all summer long! I don't mind sharing some of my fruits with them as long as they don't take too much and I get to take their picture!
Every morning during the summer I would go out into my backyard before the rest of the neighborhood really came alive. This was the quiet time when the birds liked to come and visit. I loved hearing them sing to each other. I actually learned to recognize several different species by their song alone!
I took pictures and some video of most of the different birds that come to visit and in honor of the end of summer, and possibly migration for some (maybe all?) of them, here they are!
Hope you enjoy :-)
Watch this video of our backyard birds of summer (and a few from the winter too!) and then you can scroll down to our slide show where I try to name them, but am not sure if they are all correct!
I try to name them in the slideshow below but am not sure of a few...

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
