First Attempt at Macarons

So, since I have celiac, my decent pastry options are limited. I also have a tendency to go all-in, especially if it involves new gear. I decided to try macarons, because they aren’t worse off by being gluten-free. They use almond flour. We also… Continue Reading “First Attempt at Macarons”

Preserving Lemons

One way to brighten a dish is to add preserved lemons. They are ridiculously simple and pack a punch. They keep in the fridge for months. Start with a small jar, two lemons and salt. Many recipes are for large jars, but we don’t… Continue Reading “Preserving Lemons”

Getting Started With Chickens – Eggs

So you’re a few months in and starting to wonder then these ladies will start to earn their keep. All the books say four months. In my experience, it’s more like six months. Not sure if it is something we are doing wrong, but… Continue Reading “Getting Started With Chickens – Eggs”
