When we first moved into our house, one of our housewarming gifts was a cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens. Lately my husband has been experimenting and learning new recipes, and he picked out a Teriyaki steak recipe from the cookbook, and it was absolutely amazing on the grill. The official recipe was 'Steak Teriyaki … Continue reading Teriyaki Steak
Process ALL the Apples!
Not many photos, but I was busy, busy, BUSY! I got this toy in the mail: It works SO WELL, and I didn't even take off part of my finger or anything! I bought 1/2 a bushel of Honeycrisp and fished out all my old apples. The old apples became applesauce, including this batch I … Continue reading Process ALL the Apples!
In Which I Bake a Cake Badly and the Actual Star Is Tundra
It was my husband's birthday on Friday, so I baked him a cake and something went horribly, horribly wrong. Going back over my steps, I THINK I got distracted and didn't put enough water in. And then I didn't know how to set the stove alarm correctly, so I THOUGHT I set it. It never … Continue reading In Which I Bake a Cake Badly and the Actual Star Is Tundra
I've been working on making rice pasta, and while the recipe I found makes a good dough, I can't seem to roll it thin enough that it will cook all the way through when I boil it. So. It's time for a pasta machine! Now, before you're visualizing some hugely expensive endeavor... it's not. In … Continue reading Pasta Machine!
I Made Bread!
No, this is not gluten free bread. Instead, this is me testing my End of the World supplies. Like, if you're storing them? Please check to make sure you know how to use them or they're useless to you in an emergency! In this case I have wheat berries and a wheat grinder. So I … Continue reading I Made Bread!
In Which I Am NOT the World’s Best Cook
I'm not the world's best chef, and that's pretty well known. In High School my friends teased me mercilessly for burning a pot of water and for putting a fork through my middle finger when preparing a meal. But I try. I'm not afraid to try. The results are hit or miss, but I try. … Continue reading In Which I Am NOT the World’s Best Cook
Mrs. Anderson’s Apple Crisp
We've been to the Apple Orchards several times this year, usually stopping at the Fleming Orchard as we traditionally do. The owner wasn't on site this year, and it was completely empty on several of our visits. Seriously, my dad or husband, me, a bakery lady, and a cashier. No customers. I'm hoping this year … Continue reading Mrs. Anderson’s Apple Crisp
First Grill Out and Beans From My Uncle
For a long time, my husband and my Friday night involved going over to my in-laws and grilling out with them. We'd have good food and drinks and relax. But with COVID, they're self isolating, and we're in contact with a lot of people through our job, so we're limiting contact. This last Friday was … Continue reading First Grill Out and Beans From My Uncle
ITJFU: De mi Rancho a Tu Cocina YouTube Channel
From My Ranch to Your Kitchen is a cooking YouTube channel, and you can find it here. The dishes look AMAZING though, and they're easy to follow despite my Spanish being limited. I think what would be more limiting would be the availability of some of the supplies here in Wisconsin. She's fun to watch … Continue reading ITJFU: De mi Rancho a Tu Cocina YouTube Channel
Grow My Wee Little Plants!
Here's a garden update! Almost everything has sprouted, and they're doing well so far. Here's an overview: We started lettuce just yesterday, so it's not up yet. We're experimenting with the onions. I cut them and used them for fried rice, and I wanted to replant. My husband thinks they should grow back fine from … Continue reading Grow My Wee Little Plants!
