Easiest French Onion Soup Ever

I am all about ease in the kitchen. Maybe I am lazy, or maybe I am just not a good cook. But, one thing is for sure, I LOVE good food and I don’t like to follow recipes that have me in the kitchen…

Adventures in Cheesemaking

Mmmmm cheese. I LOVE cheese…all kinds – extra sharp cheddars, nutty bries, soft goat, slices of provolone, bleu, smoky, dilly, stinky, fruity, crumbly, moldy, give it all to me. There are so many amazing cheeses and so many different ways to enjoy them. I…

Pallet Recycle – Garden Crate

Pallets are a great source of weathered wood slats for rustic DIY projects. Thankfully, most pallets are free if you just ask (behind strip malls is a great place to check – but always ask, because some stores reuse their pallets). I will warn…

Knot Tying…again…

Not everybody likes macrame art and even more think it is quite outdated. My mother wasn’t thrilled when I told her it was becoming trendy again (even though she made some amazing pieces). But, I am authentically smitten by the look and about ready…
