by Tammy Taylor

Now that summer is in full swing, the garden is growing wonderfully!  I’m harvesting and serving up as much of our fresh garden produce as I can, flavorful steamed dishes, hearty salads and homemade pickles are often on the menu.   But as much as we love steamed zucchini, you can only eat so much of it before you yearn for something more…  I’ve been making Zoodles (zucchini noodles) from our excess garden zucchini & I love this handy-dandy *vegetti device that turns an ordinary zucchini into a low-carb noodle with just the twist of the wrist.  I’m lightly cooking the zoodles using a powerful punch of flavor via these homemade Herb Bombs made with the herbs grown right outside my door.  What are Herb Bombs you say??  Well today to celebrate Fall-Back Friday, I’ll fall back into the archives to bring this post back to the surface & share this beauty with ya.  Oh man you’re gonna love this – check it out!

Fall-Back Friday: Quick & Easy Window Treatment

by Tammy Taylor~

TGIF Y’all!  Today I’ll celebrate finally reaching Friday falling back into the blog archives and bringing back to the surface one of my most popular posts and man-o-man are you gonna love this!  I needed a window treatment that was pretty but offered both privacy & light so I decided to add lace right to the window – it was PERFECT.  And if you don’t want anything flowery you can use something with no pattern such as tulle or maybe some lace with a stripe pattern – whatever works for you.  And here’s the kicker – it’s completely reversible!  Living in an apartment and hate that one window doesn’t offer privacy from your neighbors?  A small piece of lace & some kitchen ingredients – DONE.  When you move out it can all come down like is was never there.  Or how about those long sidelight windows next to front doors these days?  The only option I had when we lived in that house in town was spring rods and sheers – DANG I wish I’d known about this then!  OK I’ve blubbered enough – go, go, GO – you don’t want to miss this!

Fall-Back Friday: Obedience Training

by Tammy Taylor~

WHEW – this is such a busy time of year here on the ranch.  We have spring calves being born and the garden chores are really firing up too, but we finally made it to Friday, y’all!  So sit back & I’ll share a Fall-Back Friday post with you – I’ll fall back into the archives and bring back to the surface a post that’s proved very popular with our readers.  Today I’m sharing the importance of obedience training for a ranch dog.  We adopted our mini-schnauzer Bailey and discovered she really needed obedience training to keep her safe.  Think about it – if she sees a skunk, or venomous snake, or encounters an angry mama cow – she needs to turn her curiosity off NOW and come when we call to keep her from getting into potentially life-threatening trouble!  We were concerned that we might not be able to get her trained as poorly as she responded to our commands initially, but she came through beautifully!  Come on y’all, check it out.
