Why I Shine My Sink | Homemaking Tips

I am a terrible housekeeper! I openly admit it. This doesn’t mean I just don’t clean my house, but I don’t do it nearly as well as my husband or as quick. Cleaning isn’t something that comes easy to me & I think it’s partially because I didn’t have to clean up after myself as a child. My mother was a bit of a clean freak and we all learned quickly that if you didn’t do something to her standards she was just going to reclean it, so why bother?

Apple Cider Pork Roast in the Slow Cooker I love fall!  Autumn and spring are definitely my favorite seasons with all the gorgeous colors, but fall provides a bountiful harvest for many of my favorite foods.  Here in Iowa, apple harvest starts in July so I’ve been playing around with some amazing apple recipes.  This year, we are canning apple pie filling, apple butter, applesauce, and of course making Applesauce Sundaes! Sweets are great, but I was starting to crave something a little more savory, so I came up with this Crockpot Pork Roast with Apple Cider Gravy. Five ingredients and a few minutes of prep time earlier in the day is all it takes to put this on the table tonight for dinner. And a slow cooker guarantees that your roast pork will be tender and moist every time. [Read more...]
