August Must Be Our Busy Season

Here we are again in August. The blog is a year old now and I’ve been busy though it may not show here on the blog. It seems that when I look back at the last few years that things get busier around August.

Relax and Enjoy the Garden

Sometimes I get caught up in the work to be done and forget to lay back and enjoy the fruit of my labor or the china stored away for someday. With the latest move I have decided that I should enjoy the nice things.

Hydroponic Garden Update

Well, it has been… I forget how many weeks so let’s say awhile since I started the garden and gave an update.

Spicy Pasta with Sausage

How I got to this spicy pasta recipe was through some improvisation. The recipe I was trying to replicate called for chili pepper flakes a seasonings I don’t have. So I improvised with chili powder and red pepper flakes.

Pesto Pecan Quinoa

Happy May Day!
I remember celebrating May day as a little girl. My Mom and I would put together little floral arrangements…

Spring Gardening & Baking

Last weekend was quite productive. We went to an auction and got a great deal on some tools for Ben to start off our Saturday. Followed by some progress in our landscaping endeavor. 

Lemon Curd

The process was very easy mostly whisking and combining the ingredients over the stove.

Simply Sweet Lemon Glaze

With this lemon glaze, you can turn a bread into a dessert. It’s a perfect topping on some lemon poppy seed bread.

Floral Ring Easter Cake

Last weekend I tested out making a bundt cake. Let’s say I needed to google more bundt pan greasing tips.

Somethings Just Keep On Giving

On Sunday I took the time to admire the beauty in my own backyard to look at the spring flowers grow. Read more to find out what surprise I found!
