Welcome to my Sustainable addiction! I am a DIY addict, Wife, Mother and Grandmother.  I enjoy sharing my all natural recipes, cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene items, gardening and all things sustainable including my farming.  
We are a family owned, woman run small farm located near the Edisto River in Dorchester County SC.
Our farming operation consists of poultry, quail, eggs, dairy and meat goats. You can buy from us with confidence as we hold a permit from SC to sell Poultry and are also licensed as a Wholesale Egg Distributor.
Through our farming practices we provide for our community a variety of Poultry breeds, Heavy dual purpose birds, exotic and ornamental chickens as well as Cortunix Quail that are heat tolerant for our hot SC Summers.

Homemade Vanilla Glaze ~ Quick and Easy!

Making your own Vanilla Glaze for your desserts is very easy and literally only takes a few minutes from start to finish. You will end up with just enough to glaze 2 Coffee Cakes in loaf pans. I have been making this for years and it has never failed me yet. It has a sweet vanilla buttery taste that is good on many variations of pound cakes / coffee cakes. You can even double the recipe to have enough to frost a cake :)

Homemade Vanilla Glaze ~ Quick and Easy!


1 Cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp Butter or Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp 100% Pure Vanilla Extract
1Tsp Milk

Measure ingredients into a small saucepan, melt over LOW heat and mix together. This will take just a few minutes.

Remove from heat and immediately drizzle the topping onto your pound cake / coffee cake. It will harden as it cools.

Chocolate Version: Add 2 Tbsp of baking cocoa and increase the milk to 2 Tsp.

Lemon Glaze: add 1 Tsp of lemon extract, 100% pure lemon juice or fresh lemon zest.
