Pulled Pork Dip

This isn’t from a magazine issue, it’s just something I make that my family loves and asks for. I homeschool my son, so we regularly are cooking and eating (or packing) our own food three times a day. I will admit that quite often if lunch…

A Bunny Egg Cozy Fail

In the April 1949 issue there was an adorable little egg cozy, just basic crochet with instructions to make a rooster or a bunny. I was very excited because we eat insane amounts of eggs. My son and I will often has 2-3 soft boiled eggs…
