My Hot Kitchen!

I don’t believe in food-throwing, but there is food all over this site.

That’s what happens when the kitchen is hot and that Hot Kitchen is a member of your family!

Home’s Cool is full of what goes on in a Hot Kitchen, mostly recipes, but actually a bit more than that. Like attitudes . . . .

And is it ever scattered! (Like several other members of this family!)

Use this directory page as a huge help in finding the recipes and the attitudes quickly.

Go home!

Have fun!

        You have worked extremely hard on this site. I know how much time it takes to pull this information together. Do you belong to any Christian social media groups? A also, do you do any email campaigns. You are all set up with content. I think you can start using what content you already have, and start spending your extra hours on finishing your book!

          Christian soc-meds? Hmm…Only a facebook group called Christian Homeschool Oasis. I go there to help others… and have made lots of very good friends. I think there is another fb group I’m in that is not very active and that I don’t enjoy much…
          With a site, I am not sure how I would do an email campaign…
          I do have a lot of content, here, built over the past 6 years or so. I have begun work on the book, again! I recently found all its parts and saved them all onto one flash drive. Heh heh! That made me feel very encouraged. 😉 Thanks, so much!
