After making tens of loaves of standard sourdough, no matter how good it may be, you start to crave a little bit of variety. That’s where this beauty of a loaf comes in. I’ve been trying to get it just right for a couple of months now. More of this, less of that, etc. Finally,

I realize it’s the middle of January, but it’ll eventually be time for the holidays again, and even now, on January 20th, 2021, it’s a bit of a holiday in and of itself. Instead of being picky about the exact time of year, let’s all agree that there’s never really a bad time to enjoy

Maybe it’s the New Yorker in me, but there are times when my soul craves nothing more than a hot, spiced apple beverage. Unfortunately, out here in Idaho, they consider apple juice and apple cider to be the same thing. What a delight when my grocery order arrived with my “apple cider” in a plastic

Christmas cookies are a huge part of this time of year for me. I’ve always been a big baker around the holidays thanks to the influence of my Nana and my mom, but now that I’m on my own, I’ve found more freedom to experiment with different recipes. We always had our staples of anisettes

My kitchen has a whole cupboard dedicated to tea and vessels from which to drink it. Sometimes, I get a box of something thinking it’s going to be the best thing ever, but then I make a cup and never want to see it ever again. Mostly, that happens with spice teas. You’d think that

I’ve got a backyard garden growing this year, and it’s that time in the summer when I’m picking almost more than I can use. Currently, my jalapeno plant seems to be playing a game of how many peppers can it grow at once. I’ll try to space them out a bit, but be prepared for

Chili is one of those meals that you can make a thousand different ways and always manage to pull off something new. In this case, I got to talking with a friend at a hockey tournament about game chili, and while this recipe is written for game meats, I’m a basic suburban housewife, so I

I’d like to apologize for the lack of proper photos (at least until I get the chance to update this post). Hubby and I were so hungry, it wasn’t until we’d finished dinner, washed the dishes, and I had started writing this that I’d realized I never took a picture of the food. Bearing that

I love ginger, and I love cookies, but one of the banes of my baking existence for years has been gingerbread. I’ve never had much luck making the buildable kind, and when I do, I’m never satisfied with the texture. This year, after trying some soft ginger cookies, I was inspired to give it another
