Book Review: Artisan Drinks by Lindy Wildsmith

I know that they say “don’t judge a book by its cover,” but as soon as I saw the cover of Artisan Drinks by Lindy Wildsmith, I knew I wanted to read it. I mean, just look at it!  Luckily for us all, this book offers much more than just a pretty face. My regular readers…

Milkshakes for Breakfast?! YES!

I have a tendency to make a special Sunday breakfast. I brew up a french press pot full of the good coffee that we only use for guests and our Sunday mornings. Then comes the food…something big, something heavy and hearty and generally laden with delicious carbs! It could be biscuits and gravy, or eggs and bacon,…

Lunch Beer – a poem

Odd search queries that brought people to me…

There’s a good deal of things that people search for that end up bringing them to my site. I keep an eye on those search queries to see what people want to read about, and y’all, I’m floored from the silly questions. I’m taking a cue from one of my internet heroines, The Bloggess, and…

Aaaand we’re back!

Whew. What a month it has been! First, Eric and I went to the Festival of Legends in Chapel Hill, NC during the final weekend in April.  It was a blast, as usual. It rained most of the weekend, which kept attendance down, but we still had a very lovely time and a successful first…

WonderMix Mixer and Meat Grinder Giveaway

I’m traditionally not into using too many kitchen gadgets. I’m a wooden spoon and elbow grease kind of girl…but I’ll admit that I’ve been eyeballing a decent mixer for a while. They just seem so useful when making breads, cakes, and cookies. Meet the WonderMix Mixer From WonderMill, the well-known grinder of grains on many…

Clean Water while Camping [+ Berkey Giveaway]

Many years ago, I often found myself camping with a large group of friends once or twice a year. We’d roll out to the George Washington National Forest and set up in the same spot, a lovely area right next to a trickling stream. Now, just to set the stage, when I say “large group…

Growing Potatoes in Containers: The Harvest

On our last episode… Alright! Remember way back in May when I decided to try to grow potatoes? If you don’t, visit “Growing Potatoes in Containers: The Experiment” first to see how this container gardening experiment began (known around here as “Growing Taters in a Poke”). The sprouted potatoes went into their containers in late April. Six…

Book Review: Make Some Beer by Erica Shea and Stephen Valand

Let me start off by saying this: I live in Asheville, North Carolina. It has been voted Beer City USA for a few years, and there are, at the moment of posting, 13 craft breweries listed by the Asheville Ale Trail in and around this small mountain town. I didn’t even LIKE beer when I first moved…
