Cooking From Scratch: Weeks 9 and 10

It's hard to believe that it's been only ten weeks since I began to cook most of my foods from scratch. Since January 1st, I have made countless loaves of bread, several birthday cakes, and a lifetime's supply of dinners and lunches. I also experimented with making my own alcohol, cheeses, and butters. I also sewed my first ...

Cooking From Scratch: Weeks 6-9

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you. Take, for instance, the entire month of February this year. A mere two weeks after getting all four wisdom teeth pulled (and being bedridden for days), The Boyfriend got down on one knee and proposed. It was one of the greatest moments in my life, and we celebrated with different ...

Cooking From Scratch: Week 5

Depression from the winter and the chaos in the government kept me down, as it has for ...

Cooking From Scratch: Week Two

We have made it through yet another week of 2017 and lived to tell the tale! I'm telling you guys, this year will be a piece of cake compared to last year (mmmmmm, cake). Of course, it's still too early to know for sure, but I am having good feelings about it. And with the new year has come my resolution to start ...

Cooking From Scratch: Week 1

I made a post right before the New Year about my resolution. Part of that resolution involved giving up a lot of convenience foods and moving toward cooking things from scratch. I specifically mentioned bread, because it's something that a lot of people think of when they hear "from scratch." Really, though, the ideal ...
