Where has all the canned pumpkin gone?

Fall would not be Fall in our kitchen if we did not have everything made with pumpkin!  The problem right now, is that Hurricane Irene wiped out so many pumpkin crops that there is not a can of Pure Pumpkin to be found anywhere....Friends in England, Germany and here in the US can't find it!



I am making a plea to you, my followers....IF your store carries Canned Pumpkin (solid, not puree)...I am in need of some...I will pay you for them (and shipping)....would love to hear from you!  Thanks so much!

I'm not sure what you need it for, but have you ever made it yourself? You just buy one of those small pie pumpkins, cut it in half, clean out the seeds, wrap each half in tin foil, and bake it. Once it's done, you scrape out the pumpkin from the shell (is that what it's called? lol) and it's ready to use! It would probably be 2-3 cans worth.

Really? I haven't even really paid attention. When I go to the grocery I will keep an eye out!

You cna also steam it, then pureee it in a blender so it's smooth. I made a ton last year and froze it, so I'm set for this year. :) Also the canned pumpkin is often more butternut squash than pumpkin, so if you want true pumpkin, making it yourself is the only way to know for sure you've got it.

I make pumpkin cookies and cakes...only 2 ingredients...1 yellow cake boxed mix and 1 can solid pumpkin...that's it...mix and bake.the most moist delicious you have ever had...really easy and the kids help out...I would have to try it the other way using real pumpkin but not sure if it comes out the same way....

Mama M~ Have you been keeping up with me????lol That is all we use.I have noticed our shelves are stocked but I would rather you learn how to puree your own and it is healthier!!!!
I do the same CUT in halfs,MICROWAVE for 6 to 10 minutes(you need it really soft)the pumkpin shell will just peel off,cut into smaller chcunks then PUREE in the blender and FREEZE then in the amounts that you will need.

If you wont we do have canned here at WALMART,I am going to town in the morning for baking supplies for the market tell me and I will pick what you need.Shane thinks this is funny,I love it.
My cell is 317604-0509(at&t)call me anytime.

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
