We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

podcast- Spilled Milk

I have fallen in love with a new Podcast-Spilled Milk. I am currently listening to the Christmas Cookie  episode because it is snowing outside. I am going to try one of their recipes. Not sure which one though. Cookies can be so comforting and a little comfort right now could be good.
Spilled Milk fun to listen to, but Matt uses an occasional word ( 4 letter type) that might offend some, but you have been forewarned. Time to have some cookies.

Goal For 2017- No Knead Bread

I came across a link to a site called  breadtopia.com and there is a recipe for no knead bread. The olive and rosemary bread and then cranberry pecan grabbed my attention. This  website is pretty amazing with tutorials and fabulous photos. Plus there is a blog and a forum section. The site even won Saveur Blog  Award for 2016. A pretty amazing achievement for an amateur website I must say. Lots of great info and recipes. Stay tuned for my baking adventure. Which shall it be? Cranberry pecan or olive and rosemary? Ummmm.

Meyer Lemon

I bring our lemon tree or bush in during October and move it back out to the patio in mid May. Currently it has about ten lemons on it. In the next few weeks I will probably harvest a two or three. It takes months for them to ripen to the point of harvest. But they certainly are like sunshine in these winter months. Hope you are having a great New Year so far.
