The “green” label gets thrown around a lot these days, and while there aren’t specific criteria that qualify a product as green, the majority of products claim to be biodegradable, chlorine and phosphate free with ingredients derived from natural, renewable resources.

Take Your Baking Mixes DIY for Healthier, Less Expensive Treats

by Margaret Jarvis on Thursday, April 9, 2015 5:00 PM

These five homemade baking mixes are a breeze to make; not only do they save you money, but they're healthier than their store-bought versions!

 

When it comes to baking, it seems like more often than not you’re whipping up 60 cupcakes at the last minute with barely enough time to scramble to the store for a box of Duncan Hines. In a perfect world, you’d be given ample notice and there would be a never-ending supply of cake mix. Until that time comes, though, we’ve found that preparing our own mixes not only saves time and money in the long run, but they’re actually healthier than the store-bought versions!

Grocery Shopping Hacks to Make Meal Planning a Breeze

by Margaret Jarvis on Friday, March 6, 2015 9:00 AM
Planning dinner can sometimes be an exercise in abstract thinking. You know the feeling: the kids are home from school, homework is underway and when you open the refrigerator to work your mealtime magic, you’re greeted with a bag of spinach, some ground beef and cranberry juice. If only you’d planned ahead.

 

Luckily, those of us here at Harvest are all about getting organized and making your life easier. We’ve come up with some ideas to streamline your grocery shopping so you can  spend less time planning and more time enjoying time with your family.

by Margaret Jarvis on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 5:00 PM

Every year, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) honors apartments, single-family homes and subdivisions as part of the Best in American Living. While the focus of the event is the projects themselves, the qualities they demonstrate allow us a sneak preview of what to expect in home design trends for the following year.


Here at Harvest, we work with some of the top home builders in the state as well as the nation to bring our residents the best design available.
