Roasting Chestnuts

I love the taste of chestnuts, but since they are not common where I live, they are hard to come across. We were lucky enough to find some fresh ones at one of our local grocery stores at the end of December. So here we are. Roasting them on top of our woodstove. Most of my children do not like…

Turkey Eggrolls using left-overs

I love that I can gather ingredients and make something completely new with the items that I have already cooked.  And I love having leftovers after the holidays.  We love our air-fryer and like to make items in it for a quick lunch. PB&J gets old when you homeschool. But PB&J egg rolls are fun and different. The best part…
