Homemade Spaghetti Sauce (Made From Canned Tomatoes)

1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cloves chopped garlic
4 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato soup
3 Tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 rosemary
2 whole bay leaves
pinch of fennel seeds

* Tip~
 Add salt and  brown sugar to taste if you wish. I like a little sweet and salty!

Saute onions in oil until slightly transparent~ then add garlic and brown just a bit. Add the tomatoes and all spices. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about one hour.  Finally add the soup if you feel it needs to be thickened ~ you can omit if you feel it is fine without it.


Farming On Faith's New And Improved Homemade Laundry Soap~

Updated 10/8/12

In my journey to make money by saving money I have to say the biggest one money saving tip is my homemade Laundry Soap~and I am picky!
I have been using Homemade Laundry Soap four years now. Here is my New And Improved Homemade Laundry Soap Recipe.

Farming On Faith's Laundry Soap Cast of Characters~
1 bar of Fels Naptha
1 1/2 cup of Borax
1 1/2 cup of Washing Soda (NOT BAKING SODA)
4 cups of water

Easy Directions~

1*Grate bar of soap. Put in an old pan and cook with water until completely dissolved on medium heat.

2*Next~ add the Borax and Washing Soda and whisk. It will start to thicken like frosting. Whisk for 10 minutes on medium heat. (Use an old pan so you can whisk it good.) It will begin to thicken.

3* Pour the soap in a large mixing bowl and let it cool. This will take a few hours~ whisk it when you think about it. As it cools it will thicken~ a lot. Keep adding small amounts of water as you whisk it until it completely cools and you get the texture you like. Mine resembles cream cheese frosting in texture. Remember this is very concentrated so only use a couple Tablespoons for an HE Washer and maybe 1/4 cup for a regular washing machine. It works wonderful and no more goop!
