by Texas Homesteader ~

Whelp, here we are at the end of 2019.  This year has been filled with firsts for me. I finally got an Instant Pot and learned to make IP Cheesecake (YUM!) and even easier IP Yogurt. I also got a bread machine & learned to make a 2-Lb Honey/Oatmeal Loaf. RancherMan’s favorite!

This year y’all enjoyed some fun recipes, homemade cleaning supplies, tips, money-saving ideas and much more.  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy these top 10 Homesteading Posts of 2019!

In a hurry one day, I accidentally left the baking powder out of RancherMan’s favorite cornbread recipe. He declared they were still delicious, and that they were our version of Corn Dodgers. An accidentally delicious recipe that I often make on purpose now!
