The I-Spy Picnic Quilt

| by Allison Sharp,Jennifer's sister | Have you ever wanted a picnic quilt that looked bright and inviting on one side, but had durable, water-resistant fabric on the other? I have, so I decided to make one with a pieced top, polyester batting to resist water, and backing made from heavy-duty, water- and sun-resistant fabric. For the quilt top, I found a great pattern, Twisted Happy Blocks, by...

A Daughter’s Truth by Laura Bradford

| By Laura Bradford | Greetings! Jennifer was kind enough to invite me here today to tell you a wee bit about my newly released women’s fiction novel, A Daughter’s Truth.

Happy Pi Day!

Easy Huckleberry Pie

If you live on Huckleberry Hill, you eat a lot of huckleberries. Here is a sweet, mild recipe for huckleberry pie from my friend Lori Peterson. My son helped me make pies one day. (He is a very nice son.) The directions are very straightforward. The hardest part about making most pies for me is the crust. My friend Lori goes to Idaho every summer to pick huckleberries. Then she brings them home...

An Amish Farm in Ohio

When I went to Ohio in June for Shelley Shepard Gray and Amy Clipston's Girlfriend Getaway, I got to visit an Amish farm. It was so much fun to feed the animals, take a buggy ride, and eat the ice cream. There was also a very gute cheese factory nearby. Don't worry. I got some cheese too. I really liked the goats. I did a lot of research on goats when I wrote "The Christmas Bakery on Huckleberry...

The Tractor Mishap

| By Alesha Thompson, Jennifer's sister | I love it when spring comes to Wisconsin. It takes awhile to get here and we don’t get to enjoy it for too long, but when it comes it is stupendous! The one drawback to spring is the tractors. Don’t get me wrong, I fully support Wisconsin farmers, but there is only one way to get a tractor from a farm to a field and that is via the roads. During...

Deer Oh Deer

Yum! Banana Muffins

| By Nicole Thorpe, Jennifer’s daughter | It's FALL y'all!  We moved down south just over a year ago, so my "southern" is coming along nicely. The weather here is still warm and muggy, but this just may be one of my favorite months anywhere in the world. Maybe it's because November is the prelude to the holiday season, and there are some wonderful flavors I start to crave. So for the first...
