Our Second Year Raising Our Own Pork

Our Second Year Raising Our Own Pork

Raising our own pork turned out pretty successfully for us the first time that we tried it. So back in September we purchased two feeder pigs again. It was a little later than we had intended to start raising them, but it just hadn’t suited to start sooner. We started out well, purchasing the two pigs for $84 vs. the $130 they had cost us last time. They were also a little bigger in size. Unfortunately though, one of them started not thriving and my husband noticed him coughing soon…

Maryland Old Bay Instant Pot Chicken Wings

Maryland Old Bay Instant Pot Chicken Wings

This week I made chicken wings in my instant pot for the first time. My husband thoroughly enjoyed these Old Bay instant pot chicken wings. I’ve been brainstorming to create some new recipes for the instant pot. I’d seen other instant pot wing recipes, and I decided to try to come with a unique twist for mine.

Holiday Spice Popcorn For Christmas

Holiday Spice Popcorn For Christmas

Holiday Spice Popcorn will delight your taste-buds. Imagine the sweetness of white chocolate, followed by the spices of cinnamon and nutmeg, and combined with the satisfying crunch of popcorn. I took the ordinary caramel popcorn recipe I use, and raised it to another level. I had been considering this idea for a little while, using a cinnamon roll as inspiration. But the spices I used didn’t quite turn out to taste like a cinnamon roll. My husband says it tastes like a cross between a cinnamon roll and gingerbread. Plus there are…

Cake Balls For A Special Gift Treat

Cake Balls For A Special Gift Treat

I came across a book at the library two weeks ago called Cake Balls by Robin Ankeny and Charlotte Lyon. I decided to grab it and take it home with me. Cake balls or cake pops, whichever you call them, are something I’ve wanted to try making. The book itself is small and cute, but with gorgeous pictures of so many different varieties of cake balls. Inside the book, the authors give some history behind their business The Cake Ball Company. Then they go over what basic equipment you need to make…
