My children made fun of me for having all of these labeled jars the contents of which don't match the labels. So I made Maple Butter Nut Granola to put in the granola canister, which formerly held walnuts. Of course, I used the pumpkin seeds stored in the jar marked both "squash" and "hummingbird sugar." It's a great accompaniment to the coffee from the "almonds" jar.
Maple custard - that‘s nutmeg on top!
Never thought I‘d have a bag of salted pig intestines in my vegetarian-household fridge. There‘s a first for everything. (And I love my sausage-making nephew.)
This month‘s Cookbook Club read looks thorough and delicious. It even includes wine pairings! I can wait to start experimenting.
I listened to a big chunk of HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE while I baked one of the great mysteries of my culinary life: Nigella Lawson‘s cranberry cake. It‘s delicious, and it never looks anything like the picture because the cranberries always float up into the batter.
I think Canadian cranberries must be much lighter than the UK kind. The recipe says 6oz = 3/4 cup, but I‘ve found it‘s more like 2+ cups. #audiobaking
Bus book #3! (I don‘t think I‘ll be able to finish #4.) I hate cooking (for many reasons). But after reading this book, I‘m excited about looking at the chore of cooking with a renewed interest! The writing makes every kind of cooking seem so achievable. And the illustrations are so so so charming. 🍏🍅🧄🥔🥐
