English Muffins at 1840 Farm

I have fond memories of English muffins from my childhood.  I grew up in Kansas City and there was a Wolferman’s Bakery a short drive away.  Every so often, we traveled there to treat ourselves to their delicious fresh muffins.   The store was a beautiful shop and I loved toRead More →

Buttermilk Biscuits at 1840 Farm

Biscuits.  Just reading the word brings up thoughts of flaky, tender biscuits still warm from the oven topped with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey.  My mouth waters just thinking about it. I hear from readers quite often who have struggled to make flaky pastries to theirRead More →

Two Minute Mason Jar Pancakes at 1840 Farm

Saturday morning pancakes are a real treat.  Waking up to the smell of fresh pancakes cooking on the griddle in the farmhouse kitchen is one of the few ways to make this non morning person hop out of bed happily.  Pancakes are one of those rare foods that I loveRead More →

Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard at 1840 Farm

It’s difficult not to fall in love with ice cream.  It’s so delicious and such a welcome treat on a warm summer day. Ice cream is certainly delicious, but you haven’t lived until you have been treated to frozen custard.  The difference may seem subtle on paper, but one tasteRead More →

Raspberry Rhubarb Curd Square

Creamy Lemon Curd Square

There’s something about lemon curd that I just love.  I’ll confess that I’m not a huge fan of everything lemony, but for some inexplicable reason I adore lemon curd.  I love the burst of bright citrusy flavor as much as I enjoy the creamy texture.  It just seems to tasteRead More →

Sweet Potato Gnocchi Collage

There are a few foods that seem to require being made by hand.  They simply have the handmade goodness baked right into them and their imperfections are somehow an integral part of what makes them so special.  For me, that list begins with berry pie and continues on to includeRead More →

Chocolate Cream Pie at 1840 Fam

Chocolate.  Cream.  Pie.  Need I say more?  I didn’t think so.  What could be better than a combination of rich, chocolate cream made from scratch over a crumb pie crust topped with vanilla bean whipped cream?  For a pie lover like me, adding chocolate to the mix sends this recipeRead More →
