We unpacked the ice cream machine yesterday. Two batches have been made, both dairy-free, one egg-free (and of course both gluten-free, as goes with everything here). I got both recipes from Danielle Walker's first cookbook, Against All Grain. You can find it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, along with her other two wonderful cookbooks. … Continue reading Officially Summer

This is why he spends so much time and effort when looking for land for a new farm, and why he posts signs around his farms about… Continue reading Seed to Seal, part 2

Though it is forecast to warm up, I'm hoping the lovely frosted look doesn't disappear as they predict. There's something so beautiful about snuggling with my… Continue reading A Snowy Day
I knew our local library (which is lovely and close by) had e-books and audiobooks available to borrow online, but for some reason had never looked into it yet. We've only been here for almost a year. ::eye roll:: I suppose I do that a lot - not make use of resources until eons after… Continue reading Audiobooks may change my life

I can't help but get a little excited - Autumn has always been my favorite season - though I do want… Continue reading Watermelon days
