NO, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I promise! I have been so so busy! I have now been able to quit my fulltime day job and be at home again and doing licensed home childcare. I am loving it! I forgot really how much I missed being at home! So I will be getting back on track helping you learn how to use your long term food storage, freezer cooking, dehydrating, and anything else that deals with food storage and building and using it!
