Hi! I’m Amuntitledy…a thirty-something teacher who LOVES living in the country! I’m a little OCD in some ways, but in others a complete mess…is that possible?!  From baking to fishing, I do it all and enjoy every minute of it…except the chiggers.

I’ve created this blog to not only document what happens out here on our farm, but to hopefully share with others what I’ve learned about gardening, canning, and baking.   I am by no means a professional, but I truly enjoy sharing what I continue to learn and what has worked for me.

On top of teaching, I have a side business called O So Sweet Cookies where I make decorated goodies for folks who need to squelch their sweet tooth.  So, grab an ice cold glass of lemonade, sit on the front porch, and stay a while!

absolutely it is possible to be OCD and a mess. I am 42, and it has taken me awhile to come to grips with this! I am OCD about everything that does not matter. Example dresser handles must be in perfect line, unmatched socks hanging out of drawer not a problem. LOL
just ran across your site via pinterest, love it!

LUV cinnamon rolls. Thought I had tasted the best cinnamon rolls by my daughter-in-law, but when my sweet neighbor brought over the Monster Cinnamon Rolls for us to eat–I have never tasted such Cinnamon Roll delight ever! Those are out-of-this-world yummy!! Got your recipe now!

Hi Amy,the picture looks great. Unfortunately,I can’t get the recipe to show up,just the picture. How do I get the recipe.

Hi Sandy,
I’m not sure why it didn’t show up for you. I just checked it and both the save and print buttons worked. Let me know if you still have trouble. I can email you the recipe if all else fails.

Hi Amy,thanks for responding. Emailing may have to do it. It is still blank when I scroll under the picture. Thank you so much. Sandy


Amy July 15, 2013 at 6:13 am

No problem. I sent an email with the recipe. Enjoy!

Hi Amy,
I catch and release all the time! I don’t want to clean them. I just enjoy seeing the cork go down and the surprise of seeing what I caught. You never know what your going to catch in Louisiana.
Love your recipes they are good and not too complicated.
Thank you,

Hi Rita! Thanks so much for commenting. Sorry it took so long to reply and agree on the cleaning part! I leave that to the hubster…I just cant’ bring myself to do the actual deed. 🙂
Hope you are well!

Amy, I saw in your intro that you mentioned chiggers. We are in the process of moving to TN & after walking in the garden there apparently we have chiggers too. I had bites all over my legs, wrists & ankles. Was miserable with the itching for 3 weeks! Just wondered how you deal with it. We have no grass to mow, mostly trees on a mountain.

I actually use Benadryl spray or gel. Both have been very effective for chiggers and mosquito bites. Hope that helps!
