Cooking from Scratch is Scary

Cooking from scratch is scary, or at least I used to think so. I’ve often told the hubby that I married him because he can cook (he used to cook in restaurants.) I can bake. I’ve been baking since my early teens and my mom decided at that point I was the house baker (except … Continue reading »

Homemade Lemon Curd

Remember those fruit tarts I made for a little girl’s fairy garden party a while back? I had the hubby buy me two beautiful, organic lemons because I had big plans to make a delicious lemon custard for the filling. I ended up running out of time and whipped up a quick cream cheese filling … Continue reading »

Vanilla Blueberry Jam

A while back, someone on my Facebook feed shared a pic of Ball’s FreshTech Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker. I casually mentioned to the hubby that it was a cool idea.     I now own a FreshTech Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker. Since I now own one, I figured I better put it to … Continue reading »

Healthy Mixed Berry Muffins

My cousin is not a baker. She’s a cook. She’ll be the first to tell you that. Give her ingredients and watch her toss them together, add spices, taste, and adjust as necessary and whatever she makes will be delicious. But when she needs a cheesecake, she asks me to make it. So when she … Continue reading »

Homemade Tea Scones

My grandma had an old recipe for Scottish Homemade Tea Scones that she got from a 1960 English Magazine, which according to her note on the recipe card, she had been making for over 30 years. (She lived in England for a couple years.) It seems like this was one of the earliest recipes I … Continue reading »

A Night at The Johnson House Cabin

I got to stay at the most beautiful place last night. The Johnson House Cabin. Waking up to a glorious red sunrise over the glacier, isn’t that everyone’s dream vacation? The Cabin is a perfect getaway for a single person or a couple. (Can you say dream honeymoon spot?) This is off-the-grid, Alaskan “glamping” at it’s … Continue reading »

Breakfast Cupcakes

Ok, I admit it. I cheat sometimes. As much as I would love to get rid of all pre-process, chemical-laden, garbage-filled foods, sometimes the ease of them makes it really hard. Case and point. I found a brilliant recipe for “Breakfast Cupcakes”, or at least, that’s what I’m calling them. Not only are they delicious, … Continue reading »

Grandma’s German Apple Pancake

After my grandma passed away in 2000, my mom got her two, stuffed-to-the –brim and overflowing recipe boxes (of which one was a shoebox). I spent quite a bit of time picking through the boxes, drooling over recipes and loving Grandma’s handwritten notes on many of the cards. “You probably have this recipe, as I’ve … Continue reading »

Homemade Breakfast Cereal

I’m a cereal eater. I have been as long as I can remember. Cheerios, muesli, Raisin Bran, Rice Chex…. I loved all the “not sweet” cereals (and I was one of those weird kids who didn’t add sugar). But have you read the ingredients on the side of the cereal box? Not to mention the … Continue reading »

Blueberry Cranberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Except for on the weekends, breakfast can be a challenge at our house. I’d be content with a bowl of cold cereal or a piece of toast smothered in cream cheese and jam; the hubby, not so much. I know he wouldn’t mind if I got up with him and made him scrambled eggs with … Continue reading »
