Father's Day dinner is all about locally raised pork chops cooked on the grill and seasoned with @headcountrybbq spiced and sauces. I know that it is Father's Day, but I can't wait for dinner! #food #dinner #pork #bbq #grill #happyfathersday
Two batches of strawberry jam are processed and cooling on the kitchen counter. Now I can enjoy the sound that every canner loves to hear: the pinging of the lids as they seal. Am I the only one who feels a giant sense of accomplishment when I hear that
No Canning Rack? No Problem! Have you ever wished that you had a canning rack that would adjust to every pot in your kitchen? I did. I never seemed to have a rack that I liked or that fit very well into whichever pot I was using for canning. Then I

It was pasta night at our family table tonight. We paired diced pancetta with frozen cherry tomatoes from last year's garden. Topped with grated pecorino and basil from this year's garden, it was a delicious meal. With every bite, I was more and more ex
We were all happy to have enough leftover smoked Pastrami from our local butcher @mainemeat to make a second round of sandwiches for dinner tonight. Leftovers never had it so good and neither did we! #food

So many of you wanted to know more about fiddleheads, so here is another photo of them. They are the young fronds of ferns which can be foraged here in New England during this time of year. They can be prepared and eaten as a vegetable. They look like th
It's time to make another batch of kimchi. It's so delicious that we find excuses to add it to almost every meal! This recipe is so simple to make and so delicious. You'll wonder why you didn't always make your own! http://1840farm.com/kimchi/ #food #r
The hens helped get this morning off to a lovely start. When I went out to do my morning chores, this picture perfect speckled egg was waiting for me in the nest box. All of our heritage breed hens lay brown eggs, but these dark speckled eggs are my favor

I love to try our kitchen gadgets. We're in the farmhouse kitchen making spaghetti and smoked mozzarella stuffed meatballs with heirloom tomato sauce. This little garlic peeler is about to get a real workout. What's for dinner at your house? #food #cook
I make and can pickles using fresh cucumbers from our garden every year. I had heard how delicious @mcclurespickles were, but I had never had the chance to taste them for myself. I found a jar of them today and I am here to tell you that these Garlic &

I am beginning to think that this snow will never end. It's a good thing that we have a roaring fire and provisions in the way of Bourbon and leftover chocolate birthday cake. #bourbon #chocolate
Here's the chocolate buttermilk cake with raspberry buttercream all ready for dessert. I'm ready for a slice, how about you?
This is why the first layer of frosting is called the "crumb coat". It catches all the crumbs so that you can add a top layer that will be smooth and crumb free. Did you know that chocolate cake tends to make more crumbs (and is therefore trickier to dec
I don't always drink beer while cake decorating, but when I do, I make sure that it's something fabulous. @prettythingsbeer Bocky Bier certainly is delicious! #beer #craftbeer #drinklocal
See, the round cake was sliced in half and paired with the square cake. Together, they make a fabulous heart shaped cake without needing to buy a specialty pan. Pretty cool, don't you think? #food #baking #cakedecorating
With one slice with a sharp knife, this round cake and square cake will become a perfect heart shape. No specialty pan required!
It's time to decorate the birthday cake. This is one of my happy places. #food #cake #cakedecorating

I can't do anything about our weather forecast or the fact that they're predicting 2 - 3 feet of snow. I can make a Farmhouse Ale Braised Pork Shoulder for dinner. It won't stop the storm from coming, but we'll be well fed! #beer #craftbeer #food
