Pumpkin Mashed Potatoes Recipe

I don’t cook with canned pumpkin nearly enough, it seems most cooks only use it for making pumpkin pie, but since I’m not a pumpkin-pie-kinda-gal (not everyone is, right?) the canned pumpkin rarely ever makes it into my cart. Well, 2 weeks ago, it finally did. I dared myself to make something with it – […]

My hens are teenagers

This summer, our little itty bitty baby chicks that arrived in April began laying eggs. It usually takes about 6 months before chickadees develop into egg-layers, and like an impatient mother, I kept looking in the coop twice a day to check if my babies were growing right. Well, grow they did! And fast, too […]

When shrimp goes on sale, I always snag a bag or two of frozen shrimp. There’s no use getting the defrosted shrimp behind the glass partition, that shrimp was just the same frozen shrimp, but defrosted. I figure, the less hands that have touched my shrimp, the better. Despite being a mother of 2 boys […]

Halloween Skull Cake

My good friend and long-distance assistant, Julie from The Little Kitchen, came over a few weeks ago for a visit. I’m not a very good baker, thus the lack of fancy cakes and sweets on this blog. But Julie is. So I roped her into helping me bake a Halloween themed cake using a skull […]
