Catch the Moment Week 34

When all else fails, take a picture of your cat sleeping on a new dishwasher that’s been sitting in your house for 3 months. He’s gonna be sad I finally sold (today!) his favourite napping place! Lately it’s been me and this guy getting up together. His sun wakes him up at 6:30 and then […]

Obsessing Over Canning. I can’t stop and I want to can and jam and preserve everything. I’m waiting on (hopefully) a huge tomato and green pepper crop that I will turn almost all of it into pasta sauce, pizza sauce and salsa. I actually don’t like fresh tomatoes that much, I just wanted to grow […]

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan

My sister-in-law made the most amazing chicken Parmesan for harvest last year and I had to have the recipe. I’ve done ‘lazy’ versions and it’s just not the same. Set aside some extra time to make this delicious dish, it’s one of the farmer’s faves! You will need: 4 chicken breasts, halved Salt and pepper […]

Catch the Moment Week 33

I just had to have a picture of my niece Clara today. She looked so cute in her tank top and little bubble shorts! I think his life could only be better if we had a barn for him to roll in the hay and mouse, but he’s got it pretty good! This is the […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam + Free Printable Label

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

I have always wanted to can and preserve, but had been too intimidated. I admired that my friend Jenny shared photos of her canning adventures last year and asked her if she’d document the process for me, as I am a very visual learner. I don’t know what I’d do without someone teaching me hands […]

Catch the Moment Week 32

A crazy storm came through with two super cells, this one went to the south and this one went to the north of us, right over our house! I wish I could have captured that one Jay did with my nice camera, but I was none the wiser it was even happening! The Weather Network […]

Alberta Whole Wheat Buns

Alberta Whole Wheat Buns

One of my new year’s goals (I don’t like resolutions!) was to make more bread. I started off with a simple farmhouse bread, but I found that it dried out really fast so I figured I should try making buns instead. I was all set to make my mother-in-law’s famous “special buns”, as the kids […]

Braden is 5.5 Years Old

Our oldest is closer to 6 than 5 now and because of a busy summer, his 1/2 birthday post is over a week late! However, it was worth it because I got some pretty great pictures of this handsome little fella! By the way, he picked his outfit from head to toe, including the belt […]

Catch the Moment Week 31

It’s hard to look back this week to relive it all. This photo is from a dinner in Arkansas with the Best Food Facts TASTE bloggers at the Crystal Bridges Museum. Dinner was great, the company was even better and I was excited about my little secret. Later that night I would take a taxi […]
