If you are a mom of a busy family, then you could benefit from spending less time planning, shopping and cooking tasty, healthy meals. This gift could bring your family together on a weekly basis around the dinner table.

EMeals work with all grocery stores including Aldi!

eMeals is the simple dinner solution for busy people who want to spend their money wisely and their time with people they love. eMeals is the easy way to be organized, have a well-managed grocery budget and enjoy healthy dinners at home.

Jane DeLaney, President and Founder of eMeals, struggled with balancing work and family life like most busy people. Her commitment to making her family life ordered around an evening meal where everyone could decompress and come face to face with each other, is also the fuel that drives her passion for eMeals.

Jane founded eMeals over nine years ago with her sister, Jenny Cochran… also a busy, working mom with three kids and a reputation for her culinary skills and gracious hospitality. Their budget-minded meal planning system is complete with easy to follow (or delegate) shopping lists and delicious recipes.

I love eMeals and the ease it brings my family. You should give it a try as well!

This year in our homeschool, we are studying the election process. Since this is an election year, I figure what better way to do so, right? Here are a few election and government homeschool freebies you can use in your homeschool :)

Robert will be turning 18 this year. He is going to miss his first time voting by one month! However, that is not going to stop me from teaching him about the voting process. I want him to know WHY we vote like we do and how to choose the best candidate based on God’s principles and not man’s principles.

If you are a homeschooler looking for something fun to do with your homeschoolers, take a break from your every day studies and spend some time getting to know the candidates and the whole election process. Watch a few movies about Presidents and history — one of my favorites is of course National Treasure :). Make yummy snack foods of red, white, and blue.

To top off our studies, at the end of the year, we are going to visit our state capital and ya never know — we might even visit Washington D.C!

Do you have any freebies that we can add to this list for the election?

When she wants to bake, I no longer have to tell her, “I don’t have time.”

When she gets decorator gel all over my counter or slings icing from here to kingdom come, I just look around and think, “I wish my mom would have not cared about the messes that were made in the kitchen.” I just smile at her, shake my head and thank God that she loves to cook. I overlook the mess because I want her to understand that life does not have to be perfect.

She is an artist by heart. It is her passion. It shows in everything she does–even her sugar cookies! Thanks to Hershey and all the stuff they sent me, we were able to get in the kitchen and bake another batch of Christmas cookies, which she is taking to a friends house tomorrow.

Here is the recipe that we used for these yummy cookies!

Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Combine the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.
  2. In a large bowl: beat 1 egg with 1 cup softened butter or margarine until light and fluffy. At low speed of an electric mixer add 1 teaspoon vanilla and the flour mixture. Mix until combined, using hands if necessary. Cover dough and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Remove dough from the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll chilled dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thick. Cut dough into desired shapes. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

Royal Icing

Ingredients

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
  • assorted food coloring

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together confectioners’ sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.
  2. Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to each to desired intensity. Dip cookies, use a pastry bag, or paint them with a brush.
