Looks good. I seem to recall making it with chips sometime in the past.


Heads Up, friends! People are receiving unsolicited packets of seeds from China. The USDA warns not to plant them! Some packages say "jewelry" on the outside. Heard it from several news sources and checked it out.

No my batter was actually too thick and dry, almost like a cookie batter so I ended up adding a half cup of homemade yogurt. That got me a very thick but workable batter

I’m hoping the tiramisu I plan on making in two weeks goes more smoothly

Interesting about the seeds. Having grown up in Florida and Colorado where invasive species have wrecked havoc on the ecosystems, I’d never plant an unknown seed. I’m even careful with plants I know. Catnip can be considered invasive depending on where you live

Thanks for the nice words on the calf! He certainly is thriving and already finding his place in the herd. We'll start halter training before long. We're still undecided on his name. My husband gives me a hard time to naming them, but I tell him we've got to have a way to tell them apart when we work them, and we don't do ear tags.
Bags of seeds are super scary. It's happening here, locally. I am friends with our extension agent, and she confirmed. They are asking that all packaging and seeds be saved and sent in to them so they can find out what they are in a safely.
Zucchini bread looks lovely!!
Firing up the incubator today!

An interlude from the madness. I love this channel, so soothing, peaceful, even inspirational. To be in my 30's again and have her energy, but I love to watch this channel. This is her latest one, how she turned a 60's renovation kitchen in an early 1900's home back into something that looks old world charming.

I’ll be honest and say that rustic is my personal favorite style, but I do really appreciate the work that has gone into that kitchen and how put together it is. We’re going to be building an ADU on the property for me to stay in and I’m trying to think about design and functionality.

Just wanted to jump on here quick to tell y'all that maybe Vortex was a good name... or Cyclone... or twister? We had a tornado (F-0) touch down a few days ago! No damage other than to some trees (not on our property). Weirdest thing ever, and rare in the mountains. My husband was grilling and watched this one form. No watch of any kind, other than scattered storms. The tornado warning came up on our phones about 5 minutes after it disappeared.
