Because everything is better with chocolate!

    Hey lady, every time I open your blog page since you switched, the top photo is moved over into the right hand column. I use Firefox to open it with. Any thoughts?

      I would try checking for updates in Firefox. Or you might see if your Java is up to date. Or you might empty your Cache.

    • I had this same problem with Firefox, but it has seemed to rectify itself. I opened it, saw the picture to the right, closed it and reopened it and it’s been OK since. Hope it straightens itself out for you.

    I just made some pumpkin bread last weekend, I bet chocolate chips would be a great addition to it too!

    OMG! That looks so good I can almost taste it. I have been craving date nut bread, not sure why. Warm from the oven….butter…coffee.

    Do you bake while waiting for the newborns? Any more little darlings in the nursery? I love your videos, feels like I am down on the farm. I grew up on a farm in Missouri, now I enjoy your posts and remember my childhood. This banana bread looks wonderful, I am making it tonight! Thanks for the great recipes, Suzanne!

      I got some video yesterday of a wet newborn and Harland cleaning it up and feeding it cause it’s mother was in a lot of pain after the birth, and I also got some video of young babies going out to the pasture for the first time. All to come this week!
