The “Lost” Recipes: The Meals That Never Made it

Today I was going through my old camera’s memory disk and found a few gems.  I thought I’d share a couple photos of some of the recipes  that for one reason or another never made it on the blog.

Apparently I’m getting quite forgetful–or, I’m just incredibly lazy–because there were quite a few that I remember tasting really good that I never posted; and now it’s been so long, I can’t find my recipe notes!  Hopefully these recipes will make their appearance (recipe and all!) soon!

Curd Rice, the perfect Indian side-dish!

I’m a Crazy Canner

I love canning.  It’s no secret.  I have shelves upon shelves to prove it.

I’ve been neglecting my little blog lately, but I have a good reason.

Canned roma tomatoes

Fresh produce waits for no one!  

All my free time lately has gone to preserving fruits and vegetables for the winter.

Bear with me, dear readers, I promise I have some wonderful recipes to share with you.  Including some new, fabulous curry recipes!

Random Photos

I haven’t posted in awhile (obviously!), I’ve been lazy.  I was going to write that I’ve been busy, but then I thought, “Who am I kidding?!”  I haven’t posted because I’ve decided to watch too much television and bake too many cookies.  Sure, I’ve done a few substantial things…I’ve taken both cats to the vet, got eyelash extensions (sadly, the girl that did them this time didn’t use enough glue…and now they look funky), and I’ve hosted an “Ugly Sweater Party”.  But, aside from those things,  I haven’t really done much…and it feels so good!

I wish I would have taken more photos, but unfortunately my camera was in the cabinet and…well…out of sight, out of mind.  So I’ve decided to create a post full of randomness!


The wedding cake I made for Brooke ---how it looked when it was completely finished.

You can read all about the cake HERE.


Okay, I had to show you one more...


Minty World Peace Cookies. They would rock your world!


Who doesn't love Lavender Macarons?!


Pumpkin Trifle for Thanksgiving. Notice the mutilated gingerbread men on the top? They were delicious!


Merry Christmas!


My rosebush is confused! It's the end of December, not the middle of April! Weird!


Bobbing for apples in Summer's sink. I still have to blog about our crazy applefest!


Early October in my garden
