I tried a new slow cooker recipe yesterday - a shredded pork BBQ to be served on the butter rolls I made the other night.
Last night, I tried my bread machine's dough recipe for baking butter rolls. They're for company this evening, so I needed to finish them last night.
The result? Gorgeous rolls that are light and delicious, a lingering home-baked bread smell in my kitchen and the satisfaction of making something from scratch, with ingredients I can pronounce.
My new stove has an oval-shaped fifth burner in the middle and came with a griddle pan.
Local blogger Kristin Tennant yesterday wrote about a trip to see her family's barn.
Rob and I picked up my new range and red refrigerator this weekend.
I'd been feeling a little nervous about the fridge - what if it was too red?
Yeah, there's no such thing. It's red - really red - and I love it.
I'm not a vegetarian by any stretch, but I have an aversion to touching raw meat that limits my consumption. (In other words, I'm happy to eat burgers someone else prepares!)
So when I discovered this recipe for black bean burgers in my "All New Good Housekeeping Cook Book," they quickly became a go-to dish, especially because they're sort of summery.
A couple of days ago, I wrote explaining how I won't be able to use magnets on my new refrigerator.
I ask you lovely readers if you had any ideas for other solutions, and I got tons of great ideas, especially on Facebook.
When I have an interaction with someone who's friendly, helpful and provides great customer service, I want to shout it from the rooftops.
So today, I'm going to tell you about a conversation I had with the City of Champaign's arborist, Bill VanderWeit, who helped me with a problem tree in my parkway.
I'm as guilty as anyone of not being too careful with my current fridge.
I don't think about it much and it tends to get overloaded by magnets holding up papers.
My new fridge is being painted with auto-paint, so it will require some special care.
