Book Sale Has Been Extended!

Due to a few technical “bumps” we had at the beginning of the sale and the fact that the response has been so absolutely tremendous, we’ve decided to extend the sale until this Friday! Some of the coupon codes for the other eBooks will be ending this week, but I know that most of them are still good for a couple more days. The sale on my personal eBooks (Healthy Homemaking and Real Food on a Real Budget), though, will be extended completely until late […]

3 Year Blogiversary: A Chance to Share the Love (Big Book Sale!)

3 years ago last week, Keeper of the Home went from being a nifty idea in my mind, to being an actual blog that would become far more significant in my life than I could have imagined. I think it’s important that you know that blogs tend to be just as formational and impactful for the blog writer as they are for the reader, and usually, much more so. Writing almost daily on natural living, nutrition and real food, frugality and the importance of carefully […]

Using Sourdough in Wonderful and Unusual Ways

sourdough-starter-in-jar

I tend to be a creature of habit. I like to do things the usual or “normal” ways. I color inside the lines. I like clothes in classic styles that match easily. I prefer using tried and true recipes or simply adapting an existing recipe rather than creating my own from scratch. It shouldn’t surprise you, then, to know that I use my sourdough starter for making (what else?) bread. Just bread. How much I’ve missed by believing that sourdough is only good for bread […]

All month, the great majority of the posts from both myself and my contributing writers will focus on simple, safe and effective home remedies or preventative measures that you can take to avoid getting sick.

We’ll have posts on cold and flu prevention (and even cavity prevention), children’s […]

Written by Shannon, Contributing Writer When I was a teenager I used to get several colds every winter. Along with that came the inevitable bouts of bronchitis and/or pneumonia.

My immune system was shot because I ate junk, never gave my body proper rest, and had destroyed my gut through many rounds of antibiotics. The good news is we can recover and build our immune […]
