Fresh Cherry Crisp

After picking almost 2 quarts of cherries on Monday, I decided to make cherry crisp. We have a lot of cooking oats that I’ve used to make desserts lately. Plus, I’m still not comfortable with the idea of canning. I really want to try it, but I’m just not brave enough yet. After searching through …

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 6

Apparently it’s Wednesday again! Because of Monday’s holiday, my week has been totally thrown off. If you’re a tea lover like I am, you like trying new kinds of tea. I don’t think people realize just how many types of tea there are: black, green, white, chai, oolong, herbal, etc. Most teas told today are …

Cherries!

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Let’s take today to remember those who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the many freedoms we often take for granted. As I mentioned in my previous blog about wineberries, we’re so lucky to be in an area where we can pick all types of fruits. I’ve been checking …

Today’s Experiment in the Kitchen

Because yesterday was such a productive Monday, I’m not sure what to do with myself today. Sure – there are always things that I could be doing around the house, but there’s nothing pressing that needs to be done today. So as I was sitting in the kitchen, thinking about what to do, I started …

Gear up!

Getting ready for a crazy weekend! My sister graduates from college today! I can’t believe it! Luckily, the college is only about an hour and a half away, so the drive won’t be bad. She and I will be driving back in her car with lots of music. And possibly dancing. Oh, and RingPops. 🙂 …

Hummingbirds are back!

I can’t believe the hummingbirds are back already! It seems really early in the year for them to be back. Just a few days ago, I was sitting at our kitchen table and I look up to see a hummingbird, flying around the area where we usually hang our hummingbird feeder. I immediately made the …
