A Helpful Homemaking Website

I get so excited when I rediscover helpful websites that I've forgotten about! I wanted to link to a chicken tetrazzini recipe on my Menu Plan Monday post this week, but I had to find the recipe again; it was one that I had printed out some time ago and put in my recipe binder. I forgot how much information was at The Family Homestead! There is more information than I remember seeing when I first came across it. I have since come across it looking for laundry soap recipes, but I didn't realize it was the same website.

The Homestead Kitchen contains information on feeding your family nutritiously, as well as several recipes and helpful tips.

One of the highlights of the Homemaking and Home Management section is a homemade laundry soap recipe and a pictorial tutorial. I compared the cost of several laundry soap recipes and this is one of the least expensive. I am currently using a similar recipe that I adapted a bit, but I'll blog about that another time. You will also find spring cleaning and other home organization tips from this mother of eight.

Homestead Crafts includes bath & body, soap and soy candle recipes. The soap tutorials look very helpful, although I don't think I'm up for that yet! :-)

Crystal Miller, owner of The Family Homestead site, also blogs at Homemaking on the Homestead, where she shares weekly menu plans, recipes, bulk cooking tips, etc.
