Real Butter and Unsalted Or Salted

I have received several comments and emails over the last couple of months about butter and what I use. I thought it would make a good subject for a post since the holidays are coming up and more of us will be baking. I have used real butter for a long time. I did occasionally buy margarine when my husband was in college and money […]

Freezing Cinnamon Rolls

I was in a baking mood the other day and my kids have been requesting that I make cinnamon rolls. So, I made a big batch of them. Cinnamon rolls take time to make and I don’t often have the time it takes to make them. So, when I make them, I bake a big batch and freeze most of them. I have tried several different ways to freeze them over […]

How I Store My Artisan Bread In Five Bread Dough

I love the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day cookbook. I know I have said that several times before, but I really do use this bread a lot. I think this dough is so easy, yet so versatile. It is so nice to know that I have dough waiting in the refrigerator when I need it.  By the way the authors of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes […]

Fruit Fly/Gnat Trap

This is not a recipe for food, but a recipe to deal with something I think we have all had a problem with at one time or another, fruit flies/gnats. Aren’t they awful? I can’t stand them and the last couple of  weeks I have had a bad case of them. I could not figure out where they were coming from and they were driving me […]


Whenever I post a recipe that contains buttermilk, like my cookie recipe yesterday, I usually get a few comments or emails from readers who say they do not keep buttermilk on hand. You can almost always find buttermilk in my fridge, so not having it on hand seems odds to me. This got me thinking about buttermilk and whether or not most people keep buttermilk […]

Fifteen Favorite Family Meals

Toni is doing a series on Menu Planning. She did a post today on coming up with your family’s favorite fifteen meals. I thought it would be fun to go ahead and post my family’s 15 favorite meals. I hope it gives you some ideas for your dinners. And I am curious do you menu plan? If so how do you do it? Do you […]

Pasta Measurements

For my birthday last year, my sister gave me a kitchen scale. I knew it would be useful for some of my bread and other recipes, but I did not know how useful it would be for other things. I buy a lot of my food items in bulk, especially things like pasta. A lot of recipes call for 1 pound of pasta. Well, when […]

Knife Rack

It has been awhile since I participated in Show and Tell Friday. I have been wanting to post about my new knife rack, so I thought it would be a good thing to Show and Tell. A few weeks ago, when my mom was here, my husband and I went to Dallas for the weekend. We had a great weekend away, but it rained most […]

Guest Post – Waffle Maker Tip

I recently read a tip from a friend of mine that I thought was a great idea. I asked her to do a guest post and she agreed. So thanks Susan, it is a great tip. I hope you all enjoy it. Have you ever replaced a favorite well used appliance only to face the disappointment of, “They don’t make ‘em like they used to!”? […]

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Those of you that have read my blog for awhile know that I am trying to avoid packaged and processed things. Vanilla extract was one of those things that I had never thought about really being processed. I never thought about making my own. But after seeing a couple of sites talk about making their own vanilla extract I thought I might give it a […]
