Lady Grey Tea Cookies

Those of you who know me in person know that I have become an obsessive tea drinker… to the level some might call an addiction. But there are way, way worse things to be hooked on than Earl Grey tea, right? (Help me out here.) Well, not only is tea simply brilliant for drinking, but … Continue reading

Summer of Rhubarb

Summer of Rhubarb

Before this summer, I had never cooked or made anything with rhubarb. Well, the plethora of rhubarb at my local farmer’s market each week changed that! I made strawberry rhubarb freezer jam, rhubarb crisp, and strawberry rhubarb pie (twice). It was a yummy month of July!

She loves fruit picking and has taken me and my sibs many times over the years. For part of her birthday present this year, we got her a gift certificate … Continue reading

Strawberry Bread

Strawberry Bread

I had some strawberries that were just too sour for munching on their own, so I decided to bake them into this bread. It came out yummy! (I did add a splash of milk to the recipe because the batter was too thick and dry seeming.) It was so good fresh from the oven, but … Continue reading

This is a wonderful quarterly magazine for kids and their grown-ups, full of hands-on activities, recipes, and nature activities. My son and I have loved every thing we have done from the magazine. This past weekend we tried our hand … Continue reading
