Next week will be a big travel week for me, but I have posts lined up. A few are by my husband -I’m scared- and of course Brian will be here to help hold down the fort. Don’t worry, you can always submit your questions to I do my best to answer all questions  promptly, but I wouldn’t count on me answering your question about an ingredient substitution for the dinner you’re making right this very second, this week.

Oh yes, that happens.

As most of you have observed by now, Home Ec 101 is written in blog format. This means useful information can sometimes be hard to find. Each week I go through posts from the last three years to share some of the highlights.

So let’s flashback to the Home Ec 101 past.

Looking back to 2008:

We shared a little pillow talk.  Ok, it wasn’t that exciting, but you do need to know how to care for your pillows and when to throw them out.

Ivy wrote one of the most popular posts on the site, to this day, please enjoy How to Live on Less: A Guide to Thrifting.

This week in 2009:

We warmed up with a recipe for Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup and Ivy talked about How to Get Started on Cleaning  Your Messy House.

And just last year in 2010:

At a reader’s request I posted recipes suitable for freezing and asked the Home Ec 101 audience to share their Freezer Friendly Recipes.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks, I'm hitting that point where I'm not sure I'll ever be ready. I'll get there.
