Laundry Soap Recipe and what your Pinterest boards and pins say about you

Coers Family Laundry Soap

 

Our family of eight – soon to be nine – can dirty up some clothes, let me tell you. Plus we have twins in cloth diapers. Our laundry is no joke. To save money, my husband recently explored Pinterest to look for a good DIY homemade laundry soap recipe. I’m always fascinated when I catch a guy on Pinterest. It’s like seeing a wild animal wandering around in the city.

Sneak Attack Mac and Cheese

I love squash. It’s delicious! I love the subtle nutty flavor, the yellow color, and I really appreciate all the wonderful health benefits. Yellow squash is a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A, magnesium, fiber, folate, copper, riboflavin and phosphorus.

My family, however, does not like squash. That’s okay. This Sneak Attack Mac and Cheese makes sure they get a dose of this very good-for-you vegetable.

Buttermilk Pie – Just like Nanny used to make

Buttermilk Pie

My Nanny, Wanda Whiteley, was an amazing cook. She was an amazing woman. Born just after the Great Depression into a poor family with several siblings, her life as a child was not easy. Because she struggled with severe asthma and was not healthy enough to walk miles to school every day she stayed home and taught herself to read and write. She was loving, supportive, funny and wonderful. I miss her very much.

A few years before she died she took the time to write out several of her favorite recipes by hand into a small spiral notebook. She gave this to me for a Christmas present and I treasure it to this very day. She had terrible arthritis and it hurt her dearly to painstakingly write out each recipe. This Buttermilk Pie recipe was included and it remains a family favorite. 

Nothing would have pleased my Nanny more than to know that her recipes were shared and loved. I’m so proud to post this here on our site and share it with y’all.

Please visit our new self-hosted site for this wonderful recipe: www.thecoersfamily.com/buttermilk-pie-just-like-my-nanny-used-to-make
