Creamy Zucchini Risotto

I found a delightful looking recipe for Bacon & Corn Risotto and I knew it was the perfect use for the bag of Arborio rice I had in the cabinet. But I didn’t have corn or even bacon. But I did have zucchini, a bubbling pot of chicken stock (from our chickens!) and a bowl of homemade mascarpone.

Salt Potatoes

I was almost 20 before I realized that most of the world has no idea what a salt potato is. I was in college when a friend of mine from Rhode Island mentioned that he had never had salt potatoes. Apparently it’s a central New York thing. I was shocked. Never had a salt potato? Didn’t know what they were? I’ve since made it a mission to share the buttery delight of salt potatoes with the world.

Farm Stand Stuffed Zucchini

The inspiration for this dish is the baseball bat sized zucchini my brother-in-law provides us with each summer. Each zucchini is different and will hold a different amount so the filling is approximate and this is really more of a guideline than a recipe.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Fool

Fools aren’t very common in America (at least the dessert type) but they are in England. Or atleast that’s what the internet would have be believe. They are often made with tart goose berries (another thing we don’t have a lot of) and require a lot of sugar to make them sweet.  I decided to revamp the dessert with something I have a TON of, black raspberries. It isn’t really sweet made with this recipe but you can always add more sugar of that’s your thing.

Dip-dyed Americana Banner

A week or so ago I shared the birdhouse that I dyed along with hints of a mystery project (ooooooooo!), well it’s a mystery no more. I was dying a muslin Americana banner to hang in my living room.

I know the fourth of July is basically tomorrow, but this is a great project for all summer long (how else do you decorate in the summer if not overtly patriotic? My husband would lock me up if I started digging out the pumpkins now) [Read more...]
