Try this Recipe for brownies, they are amazing. While my version might not be the prettiest brownie on the block, I knew they where good when Joe ate four and has had one each night since I made them. I nibbled on one, gazing upon my dear husband with utter contempt, thinking of what would happen to me if I EVER ate four brownies at once.  If you are a fan of dark chocolate, you will be a fan of these brownies. Perfect with a glass of milk!!!  Enjoy :)

Winter Farmer's Market

No produce, but I did find these lovely things.  Crimini Mushrooms & Goat's milk yogurt.

I also stopped by the farm for fresh milk & eggs. I snapped a photo of the little refrigerated shed where we pick up our beloved milk and eggs. I also got the chance to chat with the farmer, he was lovely!

Pizza Night

I found a pizza recipe that I absolutely love and thought I would share. It was quite easy to make, it just takes about 2 hours to let the dough rise, but it was well worth the wait. I managed to make my own sauce with whole canned tomatoes & spices; we used up left over vegetables in the fridge, and had a quite lovely dinner. Really! I was going to take a picture of it but we were all so HUNGRY that I didn't get a chance. One other thing I did was substitute 1/2 of the flour with wheat flour (an easy compromise between Joe and me)...and it was delicious. Try it! You don't have to pay so much for pizza, and it is a million times healthier!!!!!!!!!

Homemade Pizza Recipe


Pizza Dough: Makes enough dough for two 10-12 inch pizzas

1 1/2 cups warm water (105°F-115°F)

1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast (check the expiration date on the package)

3 1/2 cups bread flour (can use all-purpose but bread flour will give you a crisper crust)

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon sugar

I reached in my pocket, and found two small acorns. It kind of made my day. Apparently I need lotion too, on my poor, dry, wintery hands :)

My little house is comforting, millions of miles away, surrounded by snow. The thought of being snowed in is a nice comforting thought.

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Gal 6:2
