Recipe File




Hi folks!
I know... it's been a minute since I've posted anything. I've had a year or so of burnout, LOL! An incident, however, on social media has kicked me in the britches and made me come out of hiding.

It seems a trusted admin in a group I started a few years ago, left the group and took all our over 2,800 recipes along with her. She started her own group and took them with her. All I can say is I hope things go well for the new group.

The incident has left me reeling and not very trusting of the social media realm, so I am in the process of closing down the group and my page there. It may be a mistake, but for now I'm going with my gut on this one.

The biggest heartache for me was not losing the recipes (I have recovered most of them) and not even the loss of trust in someone (or some ones) I had put my faith in... but that the actions of a few have affected a host of good, trustworthy folks... folks I have come to consider friends... YOU folks!

So in this post I will try to link to my copy of the recipe folders in my One Drive account... so you dear readers will have access to them even after the social media sites are shut down.

Thank you for your support and friendship.

I need to make a necessary disclaimer... the recipes in the files are simply recipes that have been shared by canners and cooks from all over the US and even other parts of the world and some use methods that are heirloom, outdated by today's USDA guidelines, and/or using another country's guidelines that may or may not be the same as the ones you are accustomed to. Don't judge, do your own research, use the ones you are comfortable using. Use at your own discretion.

Click on the link Recipe Box and we'll see if this works.

  5. I'm really glad to see you back here on Bloggspot!!!! I had been canning squash and shared pics in a canning group and had my rear raked over the coals...well my husband pointed me in the direction of your blog (yes my husband) and after reading your blog post on that, I knew that I was ok to continue on canning my squash!!! Lets be honest, that's one of those veggie plants that just keeps on giving!!! :) I hate that you had such a yucky experience on social media, and lost your trust in somebody that you had put your trust in!!!! I would love it if you took a look at my blog, and let me know what you think of it. It's just a little farm blog, with some random recipes, and crochet patterns. www.reallittlefarm.blogspot.com Thank you for being such a wonderful person!!!!!

  13. I want to say that I am so sorry that this happened to you. I have always enjoyed your facebook page and your blog. I may not agree with every recipe but I don't have to make the ones I don't agree with. I want you to know that I have told those in my group that you a fine person and I believe that you are. God Bless you Granny.
