Natural chicken coop fly spray

Now that I have a bunch of animals I am always looking for ideas to keep the flies down and ran across this recipe ..
http://www.fresh-eggs-daily.com/2014/05/all-natural-basil-mint-herbal-fly-spray.html
I don’t like to use things that will harm the animals so I figured I would give this a whirl but first have to plant some more basil and mint.. 😀

As well I have started a Pinterest Board for my chickens and my goats

Not sure where my shaker went, but, this recipe is easy and all you have to do is combine all the ingredients and put it in one of these larger shakers just like I do my taco seasoning

The Not-So-Classic 3 French Onion Soup Recipe

Love French Onion soup and the health benefits that go along with it. Very good for Cold and flu season.

Saucy Pans

Lia Schopmeyer

It’s been a very busy few weeks here at SaucyPans land. We had a lot of foodie related things going and had no time to actually cook ourselves! This had to be rectified with a delicious, belly-warming meal now that it actually is cold and not the fake cold that came a few weeks ago and fooled us all.

Being in Nice last week, I was inspired to actually finally cook some more French things. I have a beautiful French cookbook (Ripailles) at home I got one Christmas and never actually tried any of the recipes, for shame! It’s probably the prettiest cookbook I own and it has some really gutsy sort of meals in it.

Wanting to go French but also not really wanting to spend money on rabbit and lots of other ingredients, I opted to make a French onion soup.

I’m trying to put a cookbook together of just slow cooker meals; they are the best as you can put the ingredients in and leave to cook while you go about doing other things.

Gnocchi yourself out! – A recipe for pasta pillows

Saucy Pans

I’ve always thought that it’s a bit pointless making pasta from scratch – it takes ages only for you to cram a forkful into your mouth and think ”Mmm, this is tasty, almost as good as the stuff from the shops!”.

Pizza is open to much more experimentation and personalising, plus the dough is great for taking all of your weekday anger on – the more punching the better. I’ll write up my pizza recipe tips soon, I promise.
