Here’s what we’re working on in the farmhouse kitchen at 1840 Farm. Click on a photo to enlarge.
I decided to try to make a new recipe for dessert using some of this peanut free @guittardchocolate Butterscotch Chips that I was so happy to discover last weekend. If it tastes as good as it smells, we're in for a real treat! #baking #peanutfree
Two loaves of Farmhouse Brioche are cooling on the kitchen counter and the whole house smells amazing. Now, what should I make for dessert? #baking #bread
In between baskets, I am going to do a little baking and get dinner started. First up? A batch of our 1840 Farmhouse Brioche bread. Are you doing any baking today? #baking #bread
It might be easier to locate one of my recipes if I didn't have so many of them! #recipes
Last week, I shared one of our favorite peanut free treats. This week, I have another great one to share. We love the entire line of @guittardchocolate baking chocolate, chips, and cocoa. I can't wait to try their organic chocolate wafers. Until the
We're having roasted parsnips with dinner tonight. We love them. Do you?
Every once in a while, I have to push away from the sewing machine to do a little baking. Tonight, I did that and now there will be warm cookie bars for dessert. The farmhouse smells amazing and I might just need to sneak a bite (or two). Don't worry,
Snack dinner becomes legendary when your local butcher shop has their own smoked local duck breast cooling on the counter when you stop in. This is amazing and we're enjoying every single bite! @mainemeat #eatlocal
I have mentioned before that we are nut free here at 1840 Farm. Many of you have shared with me that you also avoid nuts due to allergies. I know how difficult it can be to find good, safe alternatives, so I thought that I would share a few of our favor
A bowl of hot soup can be such a comfort on a cold day. All the better if I happen to have leftover soup in the refrigerator that can be warmed up for dinner in moments. This is one of our favorites: Creamy Potato Ale Soup. It's hearty and delicious.
A cold winter's day makes me crave something warm and comforting for dinner. Right now, a pot of Potato Ale Soup is bubbling away on the stove in our farmhouse kitchen. I feel better already! What's for dinner at your house? #dinner #food #farmhousekitc
I'm not sure how much longer I can wait to cut into this Bourbon Peach Pie. If I last another five minutes, I will consider it a victory. Then I'll celebrate with a slice of pie! #pie #bourbon
In about forty minutes, this Bourbon Peach Pie will be golden brown and cooling on the counter in our farmhouse kitchen. I'm the meantime, the whole house is going to smell delicious! #pie #baking #bourbon
I decided that we needed a Bourbon Peach Pie for dessert tonight. The farmhouse is about to smell amazing! #food #pie #baking #bourbon
Homemade bread is a game changer when it comes to the grilled cheese sandwich. This beauty filled with smoked cheddar and our caramelized onion and red wine jam was a delicious lunchtime treat! #food #wine #bread
A toasted slice of homemade brioche topped with fresh clementine marmalade hit the spot this morning. To make sure that the recipes are just right, I might have a second helping with my next cup of coffee. Oh, the sacrifices I make in the name of recipe
Yesterday, I made two loaves of our Farmhouse Brioche. This morning, as I was enjoying a slice that was toasted and topped with butter and honey, I had an intense craving for a bit of clementine marmalade. After an exhaustive search of our pantry, I d
The benefits of bread baking are many, but this is my favorite. It's finally time to enjoy the first slice!
It's time for the most difficult step of bread baking: waiting to taste the first slice. I don't know how long I'll be able to wait!
After an entire week of bitterly cold weather, I need something for dinner that will remind me that we are one week closer to heirloom tomato season. It's a good thing that we have so many heirloom cherry tomatoes from last year's garden in the freezer.
You know how much I love coffee. Today, I love it even more as it helps to warm me up in spite of our cold temperature. I'll definitely be treating myself to an extra cup or two. My favorite type of coffee is a dark roast with notes of chocolate or car
It's Waffle Night here at 1840 Farm and everyone is counting the minutes until we're ready to eat. What's for dinner at your house?
Bourbon Caramel Popcorn ready for the oven. So far, it looks just as fantastic as yesterday's batch! #bourbon
Homemade Bourbon Caramel Popcorn for family movie night? Yes, please! #bourbon
I mentioned earlier that I would be drinking hot coffee all day long in anticipation of our impending winter storm. So, a mid morning cappuccino seems to be in order. A promise is a promise, right?
These leftovers and farmhouse staples are about to be transformed into Cast Iron Skillet Mashed Potato Torta. Our dinner table will be a very happy place this evening! What's for dinner at your house?
It's that time of year again when we can't seem to go anywhere without listening to people cough and sneeze. I'll be making a fresh batch of our homemade elderberry cough syrup to make sure that we don't run out! Have you ever made your own elderberry sy
It's almost time for dinner. We always have black-eyed peas for New Year's Day dinner. I love them, so I can't wait! What's for dinner on the first night of 2015 at your house?
We woke up to a frigid temperature of 9 degrees! After my round of morning chores, I can't wait to have a hot cup of coffee (or two) and warm up in front of the pellet stove. Look closely and you'll see steam rising from my coffee. Right now, this cup o
Last night's brownies were a bit more cake like than I had hoped. So, I made a bit of stout beer buttercream to serve with it this evening. Cake needs frosting on top, doesn't it? Of course, I had to take a little taste just to make sure that they would
Here's a glimpse of last night's brownie experiment. The flavor was fantastic, but I was hoping for a more dense consistency. These were a bit cakey, but really delicious. I might need to call this recipe Dark Chocolate Mocha Brownie Cake. No matter wha
I don't see how I can possibly work on a dark chocolate coffee brownie recipe without drinking a little coffee and eating a bit of chocolate, do you? #chocolate #coffee #food
Receiving a beautiful handmade board as a Christmas gift seemed to be the perfect excuse to make cast iron skillet mushroom bruschetta for dinner. Isn't this board beautiful?
Spaghetti and Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs were a huge hit at our family table tonight. I hope that your dinner was as delicious as ours was!
With all of this holiday baking going on, there's a steady supply of eggshells to give back to the hens!
I shared my review of the Vitamix Pro 750 earlier today. As part of the review (which you can find through the link below), I shared four recipes that I made using the Vitamix. I have already shared our version of the Orange Julius. It seems like the rig
Would you like to learn more about the four recipes that I tested with the Vitamix Pro 750 from JL Hufford - Discover Gourmet? This first recipe is our son's favorite. It's our take on the Orange Julius that I grew up drinking as a child. The Vitamix m
For the past few weeks, I've been putting a Vitamix to the test in our farmhouse kitchen. I have been amazed at its power and performance. Thanks to our sponsor @jlhuffordonline, you can take advantage of an incredible offer to save on the Vitamix Pro 7
This batch of bone broth has been bubbling away for about 14 hours. It looks good and smells even better. In fact, the aroma has filled the farmhouse and made me crave a turkey sandwich well before lunchtime!
I shared my favorite tips for making a flaky pie crust last week in the hopes that they would inspire a few of you to take the plunge and make a homemade pie. How many of you made pie for your Thanksgiving feast last week? What kind did you make?
