When I was at the grocery store I found these new beans I'd never heard of called Mayocoba beans. I cook a lot of beans, so I was interested to try them. At $1.80 for a two pound bag, they were cost effective. I couldn't find much in the way of recipes, so I ended up making one up.

Our dog protected our family from harm, and we are so thankful - http://www.twobearsfarm.com/2015/11/a-tale-of-when-bo-had-to-guard-his.html 
Last June we took in Bo, an English Setter, who lost his family in a tragedy. He's been the goofiest of dogs - chasing butterflies and leaves, leaping through fields, trying to jump on the schoolbus daily, and opening any unlocked door in our house. It took me five months to teach him how to sit ...

I am happy for the dog. It is important for them to be part of a pack. They are social animals like we who call ourselves Human.

I love to make my own hummus. It's a healthy snack, and I have fun creating different flavors. The boys enjoy it, and it is lunchbox friendly. It also makes wonderful wraps! Recently I whipped up a batch of spiced pumpkin hummus. This came from a recipe in Cooking Light magazine. Ingredients: ...

My husband build me some rabbit hutches using old pallets - http://www.twobearsfarm.com/2015/08/building-rabbit-hutch-from-pallets.html 
Paul is pretty handy at various projects. Over the 19 (!) years we have been married, he has built me sets of horse jumps, a dresser, a tack trunk, and a tack storage shed. And that's just to name a few things. In August he worked on building me a pair of rabbit hutches from pallets.

Ever since the derecho storm in 2012 which caused us to lose power for 8 days, I've been a little obsessed with clever off grid living ideas. One of those clever things I wanted was a sun oven. They are pricy, though, so I've been biding my time. You can bake anything in them that you would bake ...

One of the things I worked on this summer was putting together an emergency car kit. You may remember that time we got stranded on a mountain with no cell phone reception this past spring. There have been other incidents too. Like the time I had to drive home from Northern Virginia in a ...

Last Spring I was listening to an organic gardening podcast and heard that the cushaw squash makes wonderful pumpkin pies, and, even better, is resistant to squash bugs. You all know all about my squash bug woes by now. I immediately ordered some seeds. I planted just one.

Don't have a #4PMFreakOut - check out my quick dinner idea and enter to win a Mezzetta gift pack #giveaway   #spon  - http://www.twobearsfarm.com/2015/08/quick-back-to-school-dinners-with.html 
Disclaimer: I received an assortment of Mezzetta products to help facilitate this review. The opinions below are my own. One of the challenging issues of back to school is all of the constant rushing. With homework and after school activities and the two jobs I work, I do a lot of balancing.

Make Your Own Hard Tack with just 3 ingredients - http://www.twobearsfarm.com/2015/08/how-to-make-your-own-hardtack.html 
Previously I mostly just thought of hardtack as being something eaten by Civil War soldiers. It actually goes back to the time of the Egyptians, used by sailors. The good thing about hardtack (from a sailor or Civil War perspective) is that it can last for years if it stays dry and is kept away ...
