During the great depression dairy was rationed out so to make it stretch as long as possible they invented recipes that didn't use dairy. Like this lemon depression cake. Today it is known as wacky cake because there is no dairy used. The Lemon Depression Cake is absolutely amazing and my entire family loves it to this day. The cake has also been called War Cake, or Poor Man's Cake. Lemon Depression Cake  The families in the great depression were masters at saving money. They mastered many of the frugal tips we should still be using today. They also learned how to make anything they possibly could for themselves many of these items we pay for today. They also coined the phrase: use it up, wear it out, make do or do without. This cake is their way of making do!

The American dream. Buying your first home, or is it achieving the perfect apple pie recipe? Well after 5 moves with the military we are finally looking to buy our first house!   We are buying our FIRST home! It's super scary I won't lie but I will admit we aren't your typical home buyer. See, our families live in an area of Florida known for seasonal vacation rentals. Because of this, the rental market is one of the highest in the country. So, while Florida is not where we plan to put down to many roots, and while we never planned to be back in the state any longer than to visit we would be crazy not to take advantage of this. I want to share our process with you in hopes of helping you along your journey. Buying Your First Home – Our Story What is our plan? We are getting all our ducks in a row and then we will be buying our first home. We plan to be in Florida for the next 2-3 years working with my dad and learning his business inside and out. Then we plan to open a shop up in Gatlinburg Tennessee and buying our “first HOME” there and renting this house here in Florida out. I say buying our first home in Tennessee like that because right now we are looking at houses in an investment mindset. In Tennessee we will be looking at them for us personally, it will truly

Rainbow St Patricks Day Dessert recipes are a huge hit in my home. From the tiny leprechauns leaving coins in your shoes to trying to do everything in rainbows for this day. My kids absolutely love the rainbows that come with the day. They make rainbow crafts and pictures and have a grand time making a mess everywhere. However what they REALLY love is the rainbow food. Even more than the green tinted food. So, I want to share my St Patricks Day Pinterest board. I have added so many cute crafts and other recipes for St Patricks Day. We plan to read some books and do some crafts the week leading up to St Patrick's Day. If you follow the board you will be able to see all of our creations. I also had to get my daughter this super cute St. Patricks Day outfit. I just couldn't pass it up. She will be just too cute in it, I can not wait. Do your kids wear green on St Patrick's day in fear they will get pinched? This was always a fun little treat after they got dressed for school. No green, mom got the first pinch. Gently of course 😉 Here are some rainbow St Patricks Day dessert recipes we can't wait to try this year. 10 Rainbow St Patrick Day Dessert Recipes Rainbow Poke Cupcake Rainbow Bark.  Rainbow Waffles Lucky Charms Cake Rainbow Cake in a Jar  Gluten-free Rainbow Cupcakes Rainbow Fruit Platter Rainbow cake Rainbow buttermilk

This is a sponsored conversation between Luvs and The Frugal Navy Wife. All opinions remain my own, regardless I only promote products that I 100% believe in.  Do you know what I love? Saving money! I love saving money, so that our family can have money for other things. You know, more fun things than spending money on diapers. Let’s be honest, diapers are for one thing and one thing only. It’s important that they are affordable, but we also want our kids to be comfortable and for the diapers to work well. After having 5 kids, I can tell you that Luvs is perfect for our family budget. Just the right price Something you need to know about Luvs diapers is that they are just the right price. If we can afford them, as a family of seven, then anyone out there can. They even have new lower prices, so that every family can get a quality diaper at an awesome price. Give it a try When it comes to trying a new brand of diapers, I know it can be nerve-wracking, but I promise you this is worth it. Luvs is a great value and they don’t leak, so they are the perfect solution to any family trying to save more money. Luvs diapers have NightLock Plus, so the wetness stays away from your baby and your baby stays dry. My 2nd baby would pee out of every diaper at night, I never washed so many sheets in
