About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Soaking Almonds

If you like Almonds you will LOVE soaking raw almonds!! 
SO Simple! Just toss your almonds in a jar, 
cover with water, put a lid on it and let them soak overnight!
In the morning they will be puffy and oh so easy to chew! 

These are also great to blend up into dips or sauces and will add a nice creamy taste and texture. 
Give it a try and let me know what you think and what creative ways you find to use your soaked almonds :)


  1. Now that I'm done with my cleanse (no nuts), I'm super pumped to try this and make my own Dip It! You should post A's recipe!
