“In My Kitchen” June 2023

I was very proud of myself for the yard/garden work done in May. I got all the tomatoes and peppers planted (after we pulled lots of weeds and amended the back two gardens with mushroom compost and manure). I hope by the time this posts that I have everything mulched! I hope to have a . . . → Read More: “In My Kitchen” June 2023

“In My Kitchen” May 2023

I feel like there’s less and less new things to highlight in my kitchen with each passing month. I can’t just highlight the last farm bag no matter how great it was. Honestly, The Hubs seems to be cooking more on his outdoor griddle than I am cooking in my kitchen. (The griddle was highlighted . . . → Read More: “In My Kitchen” May 2023

April 2023 “In My Kitchen”

March was just meh around here. Most of that was my fault but I’m glad April is coming in with tulips, more daffodils, and warmer weather.

The biggest new thing here has to be in our outdoor kitchen. (Don’t be impressed, we just have an Ooni, a ceramic hibachi and now a new griddle.)

March 2023 “In My Kitchen”

Why is it that February always seems like the longest month? In those short twenty-eight days, there were actually a lot going on in the kitchen.

Let’s start with Valentine’s Day. I bought these (fairly expensive) caramels for The Hubs.

There were some great combos in this box—ginger, numerous types of sea salt and . . . → Read More: March 2023 “In My Kitchen”

“In My Kitchen” February 2023

February is such an odd month. It’s when we start to experience the true winter blahs. The weather turns colder and more blustery. Spring seems like a long way off.

At least it’s short.

I really don’t have a whole lot to add for In My Kitchen this month. (In My Kitchen is a place . . . → Read More: “In My Kitchen” February 2023

December 2022 “In My Kitchen”

I plan throughout the year for December themed posts, subjects like the most original “12 Days of Christmas Treats,” jams , DIY and gift making (done a couple of times), some miscellaneous posts, and cookies. In the early years of the blog, things worked out well for my holiday posts (mostly).

Then, life just got . . . → Read More: December 2022 “In My Kitchen”

November 2022 “In My Kitchen”

Welcome November! Not only is it my birthday month, but it’s the official start to the holiday season (IMHO).

Let’s start out with some beverages. I visited Iowa and family in mid October. I always bring back some local beers, mostly IPAs, but I also usually throw something in the cart that is a bit . . . → Read More: November 2022 “In My Kitchen”

October 2022 “In My Kitchen”

I hate to start every IMK post with something like “I can’t believe it’s October,” but I really can’t believe it’s October. Since I work for a college access/awareness program, September is busy with College App Week and prepping families to get ready for October 1 and the FAFSA opening. Plus, I have eleven new . . . → Read More: October 2022 “In My Kitchen”

“In My Kitchen” September 2022

We had some rain (much needed). We’ve had some cooler weather. Will September bring more? We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, step into my August kitchen.

On a recent date night, we visited a quaint pizza place that made their own version of fireball. We noticed that almost everyone coming in . . . → Read More: “In My Kitchen” September 2022
