In this mini course I explain all the equipment that you need, where you can get it, and which items you can skip. I share a lesson on canning safety, including the role of acid in canning. I'll tell you all about the canning process so you'll leave knowing how many pots are boiling when and for how long. You also can download several helpful PDFs that will help you get ready to can. Enroll in the free mini course that will have you inspired to fill jars with love in no time!
A junior high and community college English teacher by trade, blogger by nap time, I love to help others learn that handmade, homemade, and self-made make our daily lives better and more fulfilling.
I struggled for a long time with feeling anxious and unprepared when guests arrived, and I realized that was because I had no plan in place for what to serve company. I thought I had #adulting under control, but this area of my life needed some serious revamping.
I started learning more about what to serve as a hostess. I read my grandma's stained, old cookbooks, followed new blogs, asked my savviest real-life friends for recipes, and started feeling more confident. My parents owned a craft brewery my whole childhood so I knew a lot about dark beer but nothing about pretty cocktails to prepare for a bridal shower. I learned a lot of things the hard way.
I'm here to help you learn the process and techniques so you can get to the fun part, which is sharing laughs with your best friends, toasting life's happiest milestones, sipping a drink in the quiet after the kids are asleep, or offering liquid encouragement for a bestie facing breakup.
