I have made cornbread and cornbread muffins in the oven before, but hadn’t yet tried a yeasted one in the breadmaker. I tweaked the recipe and came up with a delicious version.
How delicious is chocolate? Ummmmm it’s so delicious, but there’s also a lot of confusion about chocolate—what type to eat, how much, and what types to avoid.
So I decided it was time to get educated about all the new research on chocolate.
Hey there!! Have you noticed
signs of Spring? I sure
have! It seems that one
day it is frozen winter and the next Spring is just bursting around us.
Saturday evening I attended a really fun baby shower for a friend and fellow navy wife. Our husbands are on the same sub and work in the same division, and she’s one of the few wives from the sub that I’ve actually gotten to know. Anyhoo, she is due to have her baby on March 18th, and she’s having a girl. During our conversations I asked and listened for information about things she liked for the baby. She mentioned ladybugs, chevrons, pink, gray, and she told me she wanted me to make a blanket. So I acted like I didn’t feel up to making a blanket, but I really was making one, of course. Originally, I wanted to make a pink, gay, black, and white chevron blanket, but I didn’t like the pattern I was using, so I went back to what I know, granny square. So I made a 30 x 30 gray, pink, and white granny square blanket with a crochet ladybug applique.
Topped with a rich cream cheese frosting, this lovely cake will make you think of Spring. Beautifully simple with no extra add-ins: just carrots and nuts and a hint of cinnamon throughout moist, tender cake. Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic for any time of year, but is especially good for a special Easter dessert.
But this year we decided just to make our toffee because we wanted to enjoy our 2 toddler princesses running around in kitchen. Toffee is not too messy and it makes up fairly quickly into an amazing treat and we only had one pot going at once so we could switch off duties. We even finished before my husband came home to take us out to dinner (the traditional ending of our day). It was great!
The one thing homesteaders have in common, no matter how much land you live on, is that we are all trying to do more for ourselves. Our family for instance gardens, taps maple trees, cures meat, bakes and so on. But, because of where we live we can’t raise large livestock. And for now, that’s okay because we know people who can. We don’t have an orchard in our yard, but we know where to go to get apples. You see, we have gotten to know farmers, lots of them! What we can’t do here, we can partner with others to get done. If you have never been to a “FARM” you really should look for one, or two, or three to go visit. Visits to farms can be entertaining, educational, and think of the things you can eat!
Happy Spring, everyone!
Sharing these cookies I made to celebrate spring though she never shows up here on our side of the pond. It was still summer the last time I checked!

I’ve been trying out a lot of different cream blushes over the last month or so, and my latest obsession has been Giorgio Armani’s Blushing Fabric in the shade #1 Translucent Strawberry* ($39/20 ml). This was my first time trying anything out from the brand, and I was really excited to do so! Read on to hear my full thoughts on this unique blush…
