“and now I’m getting squishes”


Yesterday was my turn to host knit day. As it happens sometimes knit day is more about the food than the knits. I scored a hit when I served up these sugared cranberriesKathleen, who always teases me about my Costco cheesecake tricks, was especially enthralled.

Makin Bacon


When Vicki was here somehow the subject of bacon came up. it’s funny how that can happen. I think we were having breakfast and I mentioned that Boar’s Head pre-cooked bacon is really not that bad. Not as good as on the stove fresh, but very convenient. Then Vicki told me about this funny little microwave bacon cooker that the girls had bought Rusty one Christmas.

and then we went on with our day.

and then the Thank You for the Wonderful Visit present arrived on my front porch. In amongst many wonderful things was Makin Bacon. Vicki oh Vicki ……..

I scream. You scream.

we all scream for frozen yogurt?

It is that time of year.  I have taken out my little Cuisinart ice cream maker.  Do you remember my implusive ice cream adventure last year?   It is all still true and if anything – more true!  The Cuisinart is great and I didn’t realize at the time what a GREAT THING it is to have that extra freezer bowl.  I highly recommend the extra bowl.  I am going to a knitting BBQ today and offered to bring some frozen yogurt –  the bowl needs to be fresh from the freezer to work and it holds 1 quart, so if you want to make a certain amount it is very nice indeed to have that extra bowl all ready to go.

and this recipe is still the absolute best.
