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.

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my post from last week! :)

  3. i’m so going to check out the feature on sunscreen this week. i burn like a mother! but i have all these weird issues with the metals in it… clicking…

    i’ve linked to my quick recipe – smashed flat chicken with prosciutto and sage. It was moist, fast, simple, and surprisingly knocked my socks off with flavor. I don’t ordinarily make a lot of chicken because…well… it’s chicken. this was worth it though.

    What fun to find 2 other recipes for using Dandelions! I’m such a beginner with my “review” of Dandelion Blossom Tea. Super excited to find kindred bloggers today.

  5. Hi Diana! Thank you for hosting this link-up! Today I shared some bread making tips I have discovered through trial and error. I hope you don’t mind that I mentioned your post on owning a grain mill.
