A lot of people just buy the canned stuff and throw it on there. If you do that, that’s fine, but I urge you to try making it yourself. Not only does it taste so yummy, it is cheaper and so much healthier. You are avoiding all of those nasty ingredients in processed foods, not to mention the possible damage caused by the packaging. The best part is, it is so very easy and fast, and you probably have all of the ingredients on hand! No last minute trips to the store necessary for you. Give it a try, and I bet you’ll never go back to the store bough stuff! Enchilada Sauce {from scratch} 2 tbsp oil (olive oil, canola oil, or avocado oil work fine) 2 tbsp flour (can be regular or your favorite gluten free) 2 heaping tbsp chili powder 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp onion powder 1/2 tsp cumin pinch of salt 2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth if you are vegan) Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until completely blended. Add spices and whisk. It will be lumpy – it’s fine! Slowly whisk in chicken broth. Continue to stir until completely combined and not lumpy. Heat to a boil. Reduced heat to simmer. Continue to cook for about 15 minutes, stirring often. Pour over your favorite recipe and enjoy!!

The main things are, I want them chewy, not cakey, and I want this beautiful delicious thin little crusty top thing. I don’t know what you would call that, but it is a necessity for me. I have made lots and lots of brownies. I have tried a thousand recipes tweaked a hundred ways. I finally hit brownie gold. (Also, just to be clear, this is NOT a healthy brownie recipe. I have a few wonderful ones, but today, you are getting my fatty fat fat recipe.) The Best Brownies {from scratch} 1 cup unsalted butter 2/3 cups cocoa powder 4 eggs, beaten 1 1/4 tsp pure vanilla 2 cups sugar 1 cup flour 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder First, preheat your oven to 350 and spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Next, melt your butter in a saucepan or the microwave. (It is very important that you use REAL butter. No margarine… here, or in any recipe ever, really.) Add your cocoa powder to your butter and whisk. In a large bowl, beat your eggs. Add the sugar and vanilla and whisk to combine. Add butter/cocoa mixture to the bowl and mix. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. (Really, you could probably just throw it in on top of the other stuff and mix it together a little, but I should probably tell you the correct way to do it.) Add to large bowl, and combine all ingredients. You don’t need a mixer for any of this, a fork will do, and don’t over mix. Add your batter to your pan, and bake for 25 minutes. Now, here’s the hard part… they are going to look like they aren’t done yet. You will be very very tempted to cook them longer. (If you do, I won’t judge you.) It isn’t necessary. They will harden as they cool, and you can definitely over cook them and destroy the chewyness! So, just take them out and let them cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!!

How could we live off only one income? It was hard at first. There are so many simple things that we just didn’t know to do! Now that I am a little more experienced in this department, I want to share with you some of the things that we have done to cut expenses and save money. Food. The grocery bill is probably the most flexible of all expenses, because unlike most bills, its isn’t a set amount. This is really the easiest place to cut. Here’s how we save on food. Make everything you can from scratch. I make all of our own bread, cakes, pies, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, pizza crusts, sauces, cinnamon rolls, soups, broths, dressings, noodles, etc. from scratch. Anything that you can make yourself, do! Not only is it much cheaper, it is also so much healthier because you are missing out on all those nasty chemicals and preservatives that packaged foods are full of! Cooking from scratch is really not that as hard or time consuming as you would think! Grow/Raise it yourself. I am lucky that we live on a farm, so we are able to do a lot more of this than most people. We raise cattle, chickens, goats, sheep, ducks, and rabbits. Plus, we have a really nice sized garden! If you can, get a chicken coop! Chickens are easy and cheap, and not having to buy chicken or eggs will save you a ton! If you are able, get a milk cow. (This is a goal of ours that we have not yet conquered, but I’m so excited for the day when I learn to make my own cheese!) Plant some fruit trees. Start an herb garden. Another thing you can do is can all the extra from your garden to last you through the off season. Meal planning. Once or twice a week, I sit down and make a meal plan. (I first try to use up all of the things that I have in my pantry or freezer.) Then, when I get to the store, I only buy exactly what I need for meals for the week. I won’t have extra that goes to waste, I won’t be making extra trips to the store, and I won’t be grabbing things that we don’t need. This is soooo important! I firmly believe that if you fail to plan, you can plan to fail! Have baseball practice on Monday? Pack on some sandwiches or throw something in the crock pot. Don’t end up eating out because you didn’t plan ahead. Know when to shop. Our store puts all the meat that need to be sold out early Monday mornings for about half the price. You have to use it or freeze it right away, but I don’t mind having a full freezer. Meat is so expensive and we save a ton of money this way. If there are two huge packages of chicken legs on sale for 1/lb, I will buy them and make a few meals out of them. Some stores have double coupon days. If your store does this – know when the coupon days are and get there! Buy produce in season. Apples are best in the fall, etc. If peaches are on sale, buy peaches that week instead of bananas. Plan around the sales/discounts. When meal planning, have your grocery store ad in front of you. If hamburger is only 1/lb that week, plan several meals out of hamburger for that week instead of buying a more expensive meat! Entertainment TV. When I became a stay-at-home mom, the first thing we cut was the cable. Obviously, this is something that is in no way a necessity, so should be first on the list to go! However, if you are like us and still want to veg, there are cheaper ways to do it! We have netflix and hulu! Both run us only $8/month! We get tons of popular shows, lots of movies (Including Disney movies!), all the kids’ favorite cartoons, the news (it’s a day behind, so you get yesterday’s news, but I’ll take it), and our favorite – discovery and history channel shows. It’s more than what we need. Find free activities. Go to the library. Go swimming in the river. Make some sandwiches and have a picnic. Go hiking. Have a water fight in the yard. Get out the crayons and draw some pictures. Go fishing. Find the free events in your area. Where we live the library has movie nights for the kids, the pool has free swimming parties and the bowling alley has kids bowl free in the summer. Find out what is available in your area. There is no reason that you have to spend a bunch of money to have fun! Baby expenses Breastfeed. Formula is crazy expensive! Not to mention all of the bottles, etc. that you have to buy with it. If you are nursing or plan to nurse, your insurance should cover the cost of a pump and any classes you might want to take (which I highly recommend, because nursing is really really tough!). Also, you can buy or make cloth breast pads so you don’t have to spend money of those. If you are unlucky (or lucky depending on how you look at it!), your kids might be like my youngest two and nurse exclusively and REFUSE to drink a bottle, so you won’t need a breastpump or bottles! Cloth diapers. I imagine that one of the biggest baby expenses are diapers. Cloth diapers are a little bit of an investment up front, but you will save THOUSANDS of dollars by using them. They have super cute ones now, and they really don’t take that long to figure out! You don’t need that many at all to last you a very long time. Plus, you can buy them used or even borrow them. Then when you are done, you can sell them! If you use them on more than one baby, imagine the savings!! Homemade baby wipes or cloth wipes. I will be honest with you, I have only done either of these things a few times, but it is something to consider to save extra money if you are tight! Clothing Thrift shops, garage sales and hand me downs. Do I need to continue to explain this one? Learn to sew. You can not only save clothes that you already own by mending them when needed, you can make your own dresses, aprons, curtains, etc. for cheap. Buy fabric when its on sale and you are really saving! Buy during the off season. Boots and coats are cheapest at the end of winter when they are trying to clear out their inventory. The same goes for swimming suits in the fall! Laundry/Cleaning DIY. Make your own laundry soap. Make your own carpet cleaner, floor cleaner, window cleaner. Not only are they cheaper, the natural versions are so much healthier and better for everyone, including the environment. Vinegar is your best friend. Use your clothesline. If you live in an apartment, you can hang up your clothes in the house if you have to! This saves money on your utility bill, or laundromat costs, but I just love hanging my clothes outside!! Cell phones/Internet etc. Cancel the landline. If you have cellphones, you probably don’t need the landline. We have to have ours because I have to fax my paperwork in for my job, but otherwise, I would get rid of it. Switch to straighttalk. Our cellphone bill was like $150/month. Then I switched to straighttalk. Unlimited calling, text and data for $45/month. The data might not be as fast, but I promise, you will survive. If you don’t need a cellphone (If you are at home most of the time) then get rid of the cell phones, and just have a landline. Get bundles. If your phone company has a bundle where you can get your phone and internet cheaper, use it! Call and complain. Seriously, this works. If your bill is too high, call and complain. They want to keep you as a customer and will try to keep you if that means giving you a discount! Cancel your internet. In most cases, you don’t need it. You can find places with public wifi or go to the library and use the internet for free. Do It Yourself Don’t hire out work. Need carpet put down? Buy it on sale at menards, watch a few youtube videos (youtube is gold!!) and do it yourself. My husband is pretty much a pro at everything now because he watched a youtube video and did it himself. Painting, deck-building, floor laying, floor staining, dishwasher installation. You name it and he can do it. And so can you! Make it yourself. Tooth whitening, shampoo, deodorant, baby wipes, cleaning products, food, curtains, cloths, home decor. You can make almost anything yourself for next to nothing!! Pamper yourself. Paint your own nails, give yourself a pedicure, do your own hair (exercise extreme caution with this one), tweeze your own eyebrows, etc. Cancel your gym membership. You don’t need the treadmill, go on a run, or walk in place. Go on pinterest and look up circuit workouts! There are tons for free. You can pick up few free weights from wal-mart for half the price of your gym membership. Learn the difference between wants and needs! Maybe I should have put this first, because it is the probably the most important. Just because it is on sale, doesn’t mean you need it. If it isn’t a necessity, don’t buy it. You don’t need a newer car or phone or whatever if you have one that works just fine! If you don’t have the cash don’t buy it. Which brings me to my next point: Use cash!! When you can see how much money you have left in your hand, you are going to be so much more careful with what you spend it on!! I highly recommend Dave Ramsey’s envelope system. (But you don’t have to pay for it! Look it up online and you can do it all on your own!) Set a budget, and stick to it. Know how much money you are making. Don’t spend more than that. Pay your most important bills first. (Housing, utilities, water.) Then move on to your debt (hospital payments, credit cards, etc.) Then you will know how much you left to put into your savings, and what’s left for food, etc. Know where your money is going. Every single cent. Plan for your entire paycheck. Write everything down, whether it’s in your ledger of your checkbook, in an online program, or just in a notebook. Know what you are spending your money on I know what you’re thinking – “But, Stacey, I don’t know how to do any of those things!” Rent a book on it at the library. Pinterest – this is where I learn everything. Look it up on youtube. Obviously, not all of these things will work for everyone! Do what you can, one thing at a time. You can do it! If you have anything to add, please leave in the comments!! Thanks for reading.

Filed Under: Cheat Recipes, Recipes Tagged With: dessert {Best Ever} FUDGE Recipe December 15, 2015 by stayatfarmmom Leave a Comment It’s Christmas time! For us that means that momma does even more baking than usual. One of my favorite Christmas foods has always been fudge. When I was in college, my grandma used to make an entire tray just for me! Now, I look forward to making it myself (with the help of boys – especially my 4-year-old who LOVES to cook!). I have tried several different recipes, and honestly, none of them were ever bad… BUT this one is my favorite! {Best Ever} FUDGE Recipe 3 cups sugar 3/4 cup unsalted butter 5 ounces (small can) evaporated milk 7 ounces (small jar) marshmallow crème 1 12 oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips 1 tsp vanilla *1 cup walnuts (optional) First, line a 9 x 13 pan with foil. Make sure you have extra sticking out the sides. Next, add your sugar, butter and evaporated milk to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a rolling boil. Cook for 7 minutes, stirring constantly. (This seems like it takes forever – set a timer!) Remove from heat and add your marshmallow crème and chocolate chips. Stir until well combined and add vanilla. (If you want to add 1 cup of walnuts, add them here!) Pour into foil lined pan. Let sit until completely cooled. Use foil to lift out of pan. Cut into squares and ENJOY!!

I probably do three loads every single day. How is this possible? I live on our farm with 4 boys and we use cloth diapers. So much laundry. So, in order to not spend an arm and a leg on laundry soap, I decided to start making my own. I tried several cheaper brands, and they just didn’t cut it. Diapers and farm stains need strong soap. I also wanted it to smell pretty, because, farm smells and diapers smells, lol. Here is my go-to recipe for laundry soap! It’s easy, cheap, works like charm and lasts forever!! How to make Homemade Laundry Soap #1. Gather your ingredients. You will need: 1 box of Borax 1 box of Super Washing Soda 1 large box of Baking Soda 2 bars of Fels Naptha Soap 1 Container of Oxy-Clean (This is totally optional, and you can use whatever size you like!) 1 container of purex crystals or downy unstoppables (Again, totally optional. I just like the smell and it makes it look pretty!) #2. Grind your naptha soap. I used to use a cheese grater for this, but it was a huge pain. I now use the food processor. It takes about 30 seconds!! #3. Add all your ingredients together in a bowl and mix! This a great job for a helpful kiddo! #4. Add to a pretty jar and you’re ready to go! As far as measurements go, I use the small blue scoop that comes in the oxy clean container. It doesn’t take much for most loads. I use once scoop for most things. Enjoy!!

Yay! It’s hard to find a good protein powder when you can’t have whey protein. I want it to be high quality, have healthy ingredients, nothing sketchy, be dairy and soy free, and taste great. (I’ll let you know which brand I’m using once I tried it for a while!) The first thing I wanted to do is try out my favorite recipes, and maybe some new ones to see how it stacks up.

And there are a million different ways you can make them, so I like to have fun coming up with new recipes for them. Last night, I really wanted a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Since I definitely wanted to avoid bread, I decided to come up with a healthy version of peanut butter and jelly. These were so good and I definitely didn’t have a craving anymore! Peanut Butter & Jelly Snack Balls: 1/4 cup raw almonds 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes 1/4 cup pitted medjool dates 1/4 cup other dried fruit (I used goji berries!) 4 tbsp almond butter sea salt Add almonds and coconut to a blender. Blend until almonds are ground into small pieces. Add dried fruit, almond butter and sea salt to taste. Blend until everything is chopped into small pieces. Scoop out with a large spoon and roll each spoonful into a ball. These keep best in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

That also means that I can’t have my favorite protein powder. After much searching, I finally found a vegan protein powder that I really like. Now that I found it, I have been so excited to try new recipes with it! I was in the mood for a cinnamon roll, and had used a similar recipe with my vanilla shakeology- and this turned out amazing!!
