Saving for a SUNNY DAY #mysunnyday

Most of us have heard the importance of saving for a “rainy day.” We’ve always been intentional with our money.I am so thankful for our “rainy day” savings as a couple of years ago when my husband experienced three layoffs within five years.

Best Buttermilk Pie Recipe

Best Buttermilk Pie Recipe on Time2saveworkshops.com

Kasey here, I have barely cooked the past couple of months because I’ve felt so yucky from morning sickness. (In case you missed my announcement on Mother’s Day we are expecting a new addition in November of this year.) I made it up to my family today by making our favorite Best Buttermilk Pie before Gary starts a new AdvoCare 24-day challenge this week. If you haven’t tried Buttermilk Pie, it is simply amazing!!! One of my absolute favorite desserts, it melts in your mouth and it’s so so easy to make.

This particular recipe, comes straight from my mama’s kitchen. She made me this precious handwritten recipe book when I first got married 17 years ago. By far, it is the most used recipe book in my kitchen. It includes all my family’s favorite recipes. Since it’s not a “secret” recipe I thought I’d share with you.
