Belle (right) and Daisy. Belle is Glory Bee’s last calf; Daisy is a newcomer. Both of these heifers are awaiting the births of their first calves, hopefully late fall or early winter. I can’t wait for milk again!

The Perfect Off-to-College Gift!

Aug
19

Your kids off to college? Mine are! This is the first year Ross, Weston, and Morgan are all three in Morgantown at WVU at the same time. I’m looking forward to visiting them there and hearing all about their experiences. Meanwhile, I’ve got the perfect gift for the special college kid in your life!

It’s the Treat of the Month Club! College students are always hungry, and what better way to let them know you’re thinking of them than to give them the gift that keeps giving–once a month, for three months (which is almost the whole semester) they’ll receive a box of goodies selected by you. Choose from dozens of flavors of biscuits, cookies, scones, fudge, and muffins. Their first shipment comes with a gift letter to let them know who gave them this delicious gift. You can check out the Treat of the Month Club here.

See everything in my Etsy shop here.

    It’s still summer, but as the days grow closer to September, while I’m still picking tomatoes and excited about fresh corn, I feel the twinges of readiness for apples and pumpkins and crackling leaves. You? At this time of year, as the season changes and the holidays are around the … Continued…

  1. August 4, 2019 - What To Do with Lots of Basil

    Freezer flavor bombs!

    My basil is overflowing this year! I use fresh basil in daily meals, and I’ve dehydrated a lot of basil to use over the winter, and then there’s pesto. It’s a great way to use up a lot of fresh basil and store it in handy little cups to drop into…..

    Rice
    Potatoes
    Soups and stews
    Dressings
    Sauces
    Meats

    For meats–I mix it in ground beef before making hamburgers. … Continued…

  1. July 22, 2019 - Catching Up with the Kids

    Everybody wants to know how the kids are doing! Kids, how are you doing? I know they look at my website because they periodically ask me questions about recipes. But they probably won’t answer here, so–

    They’re all grown up now, of course. Morgan is 23 and about to start her second year pursuing her Ph.D. in history. (The time, where does it go?) Getting them all together at the … Continued…

  1. July 19, 2019 - Biscuits with Icing

    Biscuits with icing. Apparently, it’s a thing. I never knew it was a thing. A biscuit thing. Did you?

    I found out it was a thing when customers at my Etsy shop started asking me for icing–to go with their biscuits. This had never occurred to me, but! I offer icing to go with biscuits now and have been surprised by … Continued…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
