Here at The Knotty Housewife, I aim to share my passion for rustic living and the empowerment earned by gaining self-sufficiency. There is something to be said about going back to your roots. When you live for a strong purpose, hard work is no longer an option, it's a necessity.

Homemade Laundry Soap
This is it guys, this is the recipe I have used to make all of my family’s laundry soap for the past 4+ years. Its easy, fast, cheap… Key components to DIY for me! I can’t even calculate how much money I have saved using this recipe, and my son’s eczema has all but disappeared thanks to me making the switch! I’m not adding a lot of fluff to this post because for me laundry soap is and industrial family necessity, and if you are sitting at your computer or on your phone googling a DIY laundry soap you want it for one of three reasons, to save money, to use a more natural product for your family, or because gosh darn it you hate the grocery store and just want to do it yourself!
Being from Northern Maine, Aroostook County to be exact. I have come to know a lot about potatoes! I grew up with them being a staple of our diet, and the farming of them is literally a part of the Aroostook County culture (we even got 3 weeks off of school in the fall for “Harvest Break”) It’s a well-loved tradition that at its root, provides a livelihood for countless families. Needless to say, we do potatoes a lot, and we do them a lot of ways! I must say, a plain old baked potato is probably one of my favorite foods. Every now and then though it is fun to dress it up a little, this recipe for twice baked potatoes is sooooo delicious and easy! Pair with a green salad for a quick and simple weeknight meal. Enjoy
