I made a pork roast for dinner Saturday night, and the spice mix I used tasted really good.
I thought I'd share it. I added a cup of apple juice after it cooked about 30 minutes, and it made the vegetables really soft. I won't do this again, but I figured I'd include it for those of you who like your veggies to cook to that texture.
This happens just about every spring, but I've been on a gardening kick lately. I've actually been enjoying weeding and have divided and transplanted 22 plants so far.
The next step, I'm hoping, is to create a space where I can read in the back yard.
I resolved this year to make our house more appealing from the curb.
Our front steps stopped holding paint a while back, and they're starting to rot.
I totally hacked an Easter wreath last month, but I was in the mood to actually make one today, so I went with it.
Lately, Rob and I have been eating chicken fajitas like nobody's business. They're easy to make, taste good and are pretty healthy.
I've blogged before about making fajitas from leftover steak. This version is similar but calls for fresh boneless, skinless chicken breast. So, I figured they deserved their own post.
A while back, I wrote a blog post about antiques I'd buy if I could only find them - even if it took some finangling to figure out where to put them in our tiny house.
I usually try not to blog about homemade gifts before they're delivered to the intended recipient, but I'm making a baby blanket I love so much, I can't resist.
I turned my calendar to April yesterday morning, but am still wearing my winter coat to work.
The cold temperatures can't keep me down though, because Pinterest has me looking at oodles of adorable galvanized tubs serving as planters and other pieces of garden art.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Yesterday, after writing about half whole-wheat pretzel rolls, a coworker called me with the question: "What's vital wheat gluten?"
I thought I'd blogged about it before, but it turns out, I've just mentioned it a lot.
I bought pretzel salt a few months ago and had big dreams of making all sorts of soft pretzel creations with it.
I always feel slightly guilty when making all-white-flour baked goods, though, so I made one batch and then put my pretzel salt away.
