  We are currently tearing out our summer garden and replacing it with cool weather veggies. Since I am finally done processing the tomatoes, cucumbers, dill, zucchini, and every other summer vegetable, I have to time to blog about some of our favorite summer recipes that we had during the summer. Heirloom pizza was one […]

Easy Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

  One of our favorite things to enjoy together is a homemade pizza—crust and all. Summer is the perfect time! With fresh basil, tomatoes, shallots all fresh out of the garden, and garlic saved from this winter. Pizza is SUCH a fun dinner to make. I do enjoy easier recipes these days, with two little […]

Home Canned Tomatoes

  I spent about three whole days in our tiny kitchen canning tomatoes this summer… all to have for the coming winter months for stews and soups. Hallelujah I’m done! Phew… Canning can be so relaxing, when you can work to nothing but the sound of your favorite music or podcast.  I have to say […]

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

There almost isn’t a smell better than freshly baked bread. If you want in on a secret, our freezer is full of this bread because I bake it faster than we eat it–I just love filling our house up with the smell of fresh bread. Making our own bread on a regular basis (replacing our […]

Cucumber & Pita Chip Salad with Feta

We usually have a plethora of lemon cucumbers in the garden, (they’re our favorite!) this year we opted to grow a different variety, which were also wonderful..They seemed to have a much shorter productive time than our lemon cucumbers usually do. We enjoyed snacking on fresh cucumbers and making recipes like our Mediterranean salad, and […]

Garlic Lemon Dressing

We’ve been really into making our own salad dressings lately.Once I found a few simple “go to” dressings that work, and are delicious, I was hooked. Homemade salad dressings 1) have only simple ingredients 2) are fresher than store bought bottles 3) are more cost effective 4) are tastier! I love the combination of lemon […]

The Best Homemade Granola Recipe

I consider this the best granola recipe because it tastes delicious on it’s own, but can be the base granola for any flavor granola that you choose. It is customizable for any palate. We often make it on it’s own,but enjoy it with walnuts, cranberries, raisins, or whatever else we have in our cupboards. It uses […]
