There are recipes we all remember from our childhood whether they were made by our moms or the warm toasty kitchen of our grandmother’s house. Many homes had a few staples on hand and oatmeal was one of them.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I stumbled across some great vintage cookbooks that have some familiar recipes. While thumbing through these great little gems, it occurred to me there were so many recipes that were not familiar. Something else that I noticed were the ingredients. It seems that years ago many of the recipes had minimal ingredients that were readily available and did not have complicated instructions. [Read more…]
Woke up to a new round of winter weather. Last week it was three days of ice with snow on top and it all finally melted with help from the rain on Saturday. Now snow has come to visit again (insert sad face……come on Spring). [Read more…]
I really love to cook and everything that is incorporated into it no matter what it is such as recipes, utensils, cook books, linens, etc.

I love to stumble upon great vintage recipe books and I feel that the home town recipe book are great.

Since the spring growing season is vastly approaching and you haven’t seen or prepared your soil since last growing season it’s time to ramp up on your pH skills.
You probably know what the pH level to the human body is however; you may not be familiar with soil pH for your gardening.
The Colorado State University Extension defines Soil pH as…..
Soil pH is a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of a soil. On the pH scale, 7.0 is neutral. Below 7.0 acid, and above 7.0 is basic or alkaline. A pH range of 6.8 to 7.2 is termed near neutral. [Read more…]
I recently picked up this great vintage stool that needs a little TLC.
The bones are in excellent condition; however the rattan seat…..not so much. She is definitely a keeper though. She will have a new seat and a fresh coat of paint and her glory days will be restored.
I will keep you posted on her progress.
Do you have a great find that you are bringing back to life?
