A gal that cooks, crafts, grows & travels in the Midwest.
I don’t craft as much as I once did. When I do, you will find it here. Many of the posting will be about gardening and previous crafts that I sold at one point.
I live in Wisconsin. We have a VERY short growing season and experience long, gloomy winters. Many of the postings deal with cold weather. I also have a love of nature and wildlife – expect plenty of postings dealing with critters. This is a small sampling of over 200+ posts.

EXPLORE THE MIDWEST
I keep myself busy by exploring the Midwest. I enjoy hiking new trails and searching out the wildlife, plants and whatever else Mother Nature throws at me when on my travels to locations.
The posts below are informational. Places you too can visit. Most include directions and / or are Google Map enabled. This will be a small sampling. I plan on adding additional places.
I really photograph for me. I think of it as a therapy of sorts and I enjoy nature with every fiber of my being. If you enjoy the outdoors, then I figured why not share places that may be new to you.
I will be adding additional photography galleries here, if you are interested. Any sales from photography allow me to travel more and share my love of nature with you.
TRAVEL & MAKE AHEAD RECIPES
I like simple! I’m also the person that believes that time is the most important asset of one’s life. The recipes under this category are make ahead recipes that allow me to spend less time in the kitchen and more time out enjoying life.
Making meals & snacks ahead of time saves money because I’m not making a quick dash to the drive through. I also eat a little healthier because the meals travel well, or can be pulled out of the fridge and reheated.
Recipes Using Freshly Grown Produce
In my social circle, we will make a party for ANYTHING. Life is centered around food and drink. I live in Wisconsin, ’nuff said 🙂
