Easy Homemade Breadcrumbs

Easy Homemade Breadcrumbs

Do you read articles and think, I can do that, and you do it to ask yourself why didn't I think of this? I did just that with homemade breadcrumbs. But the only problem is, I can’t find the article from the blogger I follow so I can give her credit. I may have read it on another blog so until I find it, I can’t give anyone credit for me making my own homemade breadcrumbs. I normally don’t buy breadcrumbs unless I’m making cheese sticks. I use crushed saltine crackers in my meatloaf and in my salmon patties. When I read how easy it was to make bread crumbs without using up a good loaf of bread or allowing bread to sit out and stale to make them, I was like why didn’t I think of this on my own!

If I did, I was going to do what I could to lessen the symptoms and the duration of the dreaded illness.

Easy Crock-Pot Apple Butter

My first canning project for the season was apple butter. Before we moved, my Momma called and told me her trees were full of apples and asked if I wanted some when we got back to Georgia. I was so excited about having apples I knew were not full of pesticides for cake, jelly, and apple butter. I was amazed at the huge bag of apples in the bottom of her spare refrigerator;  all I could think about was making Apple Butter.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Since our family eats a lot of Mexican foods, I like to keep on hand taco seasoning. While the cost of individual packages of taco seasoning and fajita seasonings are relatively inexpensive, it’s what is hidden on the inside that has me concerned. Last year, I shared my Homemade Fajita Seasoning recipe and today I’m sharing my Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe.
