Posted · 9 Comments



Announcement… please re-read the simple guidelines for submission (below) so you can be sure your post matches the spirit and theme of this blog hop. Please do not submit giveaway posts. Also, please remember to link your post to one of the host blogs!

It’s Simple Lives Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share your tips and recipes for living a simple life. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all 4 sites! As a reminder, this blog hop is a way to share with many people your posts on what you are doing to live a simple life. Whether that’s gardening, raising urban chickens, homeschooling, sewing, making your own deodorant, or cleaning supplies… we want to know about it! If you’re into homeopathy, ways to save $ by conserving energy or other ways to live frugally… we want to know about it! If you bike, cook real food, homestead or farm… we want to know about it!

Your Hosts (for the time being, due to hosts taking breaks)

  1. Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS
  2. Alicia from Culinary Bliss
  3. Me!

Please read and follow the Simple Lives Thursday bloghop rules

1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole. Such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policeman, however, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.

2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.

3. No giveaway away or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.

  1. Wow- where did this week go? Happy Thursday!
    I shared my recipe for Chicken Stew With Olives And Grapes.
    Thanks for hosting!

  2. there are so many incredible looking posts this week! Will make my way around after class :)

    This week I’ve posted my recipe for left over roasted veggies – stick em in an omelet and eat it for breakfast! (or supper because breakfast at dinner time is awesome).

  3. Quack Quack!

    I’m not calling you a quack! I made quack quack! Little bits of roasted duck meat rolled up in a savory crepe and doused with a little strawberry, plum, blood orange sauce and topped with a wee bit of fresh crunchy arugula. Hello, beautiful :)

    thanks for hosting!

  4. Thank you for hosting! It is such a beautiful day out… I shared a recipe for tomato soup that tasted garden-fresh. The tomatoes were actually frozen, purchased at the farmer’s market last year. Who would know? I also shared a recipe for quiche pizza with no-knead, whole wheat crust. Our nearly-four-year-old claims that he does not like eggs, but loves whatever I put on a homemade pizza! Kids.

  5. Thanks for hosting! I shared a Chocolate Smoothie w/ Herbal Tea Infusion recipe. It’s really yummy and a great way to get all of those readily available vitamins and minerals from the infusion. Thanks again!
