Good morning! I woke up feeling more like myself today. Thank heavens. I mixed up some pita dough and plan to get as much done as I can while it rises. My favorite pita recipe remains the one from “Bread Making: A Home Course” by Lauren Chattman. I published the recipe in issue 2 of CraftSanity [...]
On this episode of the podcast I chat with award-winning cookbook author and culinary instructor, Diane Morgan, about the joys of gifting food for the holidays and her inspiring book on the topic: “Gifts Cooks Love: Recipes for Giving.” This interview was recorded last year and I’m so glad to finally post it so you [...]
Strawberries are ripe for the picking here in West Michigan and I got a little carried away this year. Armed with the tasty jam recipe by Lydia Adams (published on p. 3 of CraftSanity Magazine issue 3), my family picked 30 pounds of strawberries this past Wednesday at Krupp Farms in Comstock Park. There’s an [...]
The sky was looking iffy yesterday morning, but the girls and I headed out to the strawberry patch anyway, almost daring the clouds to rain on us. They did not. Chilly and overcast, the conditions turned out to be perfect for picking and photography. Within 30 minutes we had plucked 14 pounds of juicy berries [...]
I love baked potatoes. But the potato setting on my microwave has failed me so many times, leaving me with shriveled and lifeless potatoes. Thanks to a fellow Michigan crafter I’ve stopped shriveling potatoes. Gerri Nielsen gave me one of her fabric potato bags and I swear it’s taken the frustration out of rapid potato [...]

How do you like these apples? Lovely, eh? There’s nothing like a bushel of fresh, locally grown apples to welcome fall. Sunday night I made two batches of applesauce and probably have enough apples to make at least four more. The plan is to load up the freezer and serve this delightful sauce warm as [...]
I love fresh strawberries. LOVE them. So, of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to load up on eight quarts of these sweet treats from the local CSA farm. It’s been a few years since I’ve made strawberry jam, so I was due to get out the water canner and an ungodly amount of [...]
This is the bird’s nest we discovered under our deck today. I’m in awe of how resourceful birds are. Even our dog’s white fur is woven into this abode. I just love meeting “natural” weavers. Welcome to my back yard! Thanks to everyone who posted about the Swiss chard. I cooked it up in a [...]
Isn’t this kohlrabi beautiful? My share partner at Trillium Haven, the CSA farm I joined this year didn’t want her half of this lovely, so I took it home make some Kohlrabi fries. First, I peeled it and sliced it like potato and browned the sliced in a pan with a bit of olive oil. [...]
