2012 Crafty Year in Review

December 31, 2012By 1 Comment

When I was thinking of this post, I honestly thought, “I don’t think I did all that much this year.” Ha! Seeing it all in one place makes me realize I had a really busy year! I learned a few new crafts, including canning, needlework and weaving. Knitting remained my go-to craft, but I also […]

Cold Mornings are Perfect for Oatmeal

October 15, 2012By 2 Comments

It’s October, which means cool mornings which for me means one thing – oatmeal. I love hot oatmeal in the morning. It’s warm, it’s filling, it’s comforting, and it’s one of my favorite things about cool weather. This weekend I tried a new slow-cooker oatmeal recipe that I absolutely loved. Along with oatmeal it combines […]

Sweet Pickled Jalapenos – with recipe

August 20, 2012By 2 Comments

I did not grow up eating spicy food. Truly, anything beyond black pepper was considered spicy, and even black pepper was rare – truth be told, I still don’t like it much. But as I’ve grown older, I’ve tried more spicy food, and have even ramped up my taste for spicy things – somewhat. I’ll […]

Peach Vanilla Bourbon Jam, Dilly Beans

July 16, 2012By 1 Comment

I had quite a productive canning weekend! Considering I’m still new at this canning business, I had two successes. After a productive trip to the farmer’s market on Saturday morning, I made dilly beans. I admit that I’ve never eaten these pickled green beans before, but my twitter friends are raving about them and Marisa […]

A Fabulous (Food) Day

April 9, 2012By 1 Comment

I’m not sure what it was, but something about the meals I ate this Sunday really made me happy. Maybe because I made them all? And tried new things? They all just seemed so wholesome and healthy and tasty and new-to-me, and I enjoyed the heck out of them. The day started off with a […]

March 9, 2012By 4 Comments

I’m trying to eat more healthful foods these days – eating more often at home, trying to use more whole foods (instead of processed), that sort of thing. To supplement this new way of eating, I thought it might be good to try out some local produce options. How lucky was I that Green B.E.A.N. […]

Green Smoothie – a Fruity, Tasty Breakfast Experiment

March 6, 2012By 2 Comments

This week I’m on furlough from my job. While the unpaid part of this furlough isn’t the greatest, it’s really nice to have a week off from work, a week where I am not required, nay, not even allowed to have any contact with the office. That made it stressful last week while getting ready for […]

Homemade Bread in my New Breadmaker

February 3, 2012By 3 Comments

Around the holidays, knowing the Mr. Martini and I weren’t exchanging gifts, I treated myself to something I’ve wanted for a long time. A bread maker. Oh, how I love this machine. I throw all the ingredients into the bread maker’s pan, set it to the size and type of loaf, and then just walk […]
