Homemade Stock

This is without a doubt the recipe I use my Instant Pot for the most. I make a big batch of some kind of stock/broth about every two weeks. I use it year round in everything from Shortcut Chicken Noodle Soup to Spinach and Artichoke Pasta to Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken (and then I use […]

Blush and Ivory Velvet Stripes Throw

I originally made this blanket to go on Harper’s bed when we transitioned her out of her crib, but I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t wanted to claim it for myself. As a matter of fact, I’m snuggled under it right now. Tip: make sure your stitches are tight or the yarn […]

Masculine Stripes Baby Blanket

In February I’ll have two sweet new nephews and I am so excited. That combined with the fact that it’s fall, means I’ve been crocheting baby blankets in my spare time. I’ve finished one and I am in love with how it turned out. I think it’s just perfect for a little boy. I love […]

Salt and Pepper Sourdough Discard Crackers

I started my sourdough journey for the bread, but I’m staying for the crackers. These crackers specifically. They’re light and flakey and buttery. I could probably (definitely) eat an entire batch by myself in one sitting. So, without further ado, Salt and Pepper Sourdough Discard Crackers. (This is adapted from a King Arthur Flour cracker […]
