It was a little expensive for factory dough croissant (the kind that comes in a slab and you pinch it out and roll it and leave it in the oven to bake.) But the aroma was too much for me. I HAD to have a croissant....more

I finally made butter....

I made butter…finally!My husband is a living history extraordinaire! Which means, I have lots of  “how to” books referencing his favorite time in history, Colonial America.  These books include everything from cooking simple every day fare to exquisite banquets…how to sew clothing for the average family living on and running a small farm to the extravagance of the elite and Royalist…he can demonstrate, with amazing detail, the aspects of nearly every part of colonial life.  Me? Well, today I finally made butter!...more
Yum!   And, congratulations!more
