Short in stature

Short in stature

But big on taste!

I have had little to no success with “tender” breads, outside of rolls, but when I saw this recipe in the Sunday Recipe Roundup I decided to give it a try.

What it lacks in stature does not hinder the taste or texture.

Bonus in that I know where my problem lies and have ordered new yeast to solve it!

The marshmallows are done, bring on the Christmas!

Because…

There is nothing better than homemade marshmallows atop a warm cup of chocolate on Christmas morning.

Happy Christmas, Gentle Reader!

In the face of the senseless tragedy, the words of Mr. Rogers echo in my mind, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'”
Be a helper to those around you today.

Soup's On

Soup's On

It was had a fabulous year at our farmer’s market and add to that the abundance that was our garden this year and that makes lots of good food!

Sadly, Saturday was the last day our favorite farmer will be at the market  and we will miss him but look forward to June when he will be back at the market again! However, over the past weeks, I have been stocking up on winter squash, pumpkins, onions, and garlic. We were gifted a huge bag of apples, which will be cooked this week. However, the big winner was the 50 lbs. of potatoes that we got for practically nothing.

Yes, you read that right – 50 pounds – which is A LOT of potatoes…

When life gives you potatoes, the only thing to do is to make some hearty potato soup!
