Simple Homestead blog hop #198

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Welcome! I look forward to Thursdays when we get together for another linky party. Have fun exploring all the great ideas that are shared here each week on the hop. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). The hop begins at 12:01 am on Thursday morning and runs through Sunday evening.

This Week

I know you'll love both of this week's opportunities:


If you're longing to cook more of your family's food from scratch, this is for you. Jill Winger from The Prairie Homestead has spent the past year creating this 10-part video series she's calling the Heritage Cooking Crash Course. Next week, March 11th through the 15th, you can watch the videos for FREE. (I've watched them and they are amazing.)

You'll need to register in order to watch them, which you can do right here. While you're there you can find out about all the course modules and what you can learn.

If you want to learn how to ferment and can the vegetables from your own garden or the farmers market, bake sourdough bread or make sausage at home, you'll love the Heritage Cooking Crash Course.

But here's the thing: they'll only be free to watch next week, so go here and register, then write it on your calendar.

If you're interested in seed saving, you'll be happy to learn that Kait from Kait's Garden is offering 20% off her Simple Seed Saving Course through March 13th when you use the code SEEDSAVING19 at checkout. Click here to learn more about the course, it's jam-packed with seed saving information.

Now on to this week's hop!

  1. Best wishes with the cooking from scratch courses! Sounds like a great resource. :) I started cooking from scratch standing on a chair and helping my Mom as a little kid. I remember making pies by the time I was 10 or so. I still enjoy cooking and baking from scratch and only buy boxed mixes occasionally for my son, who likes to make goodies sometimes, but isn't patient enough for very many recipes. :)

    1. Lisa, my husband is the same way. If I buy him a few boxed mixes I'll occasionally be surprised with a pan of brownies or a dozen muffins.

  2. Good luck in cooking from scratch, everytime I try it, it doesn't go well. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.
