So it’s been months-ish since last I posted. Life has devoured me. Can I blame my kids? Would that make me a bad person? It would? Crap.
Fine, I blame my job.
Too busy to blog does not mean too busy to cook. Far from it! I’ve found a few marvelous recipes on this here interwebs, and though I don’t have the energy, the brainspace, or the fortitude to keep up my little hobby of anal-retentively photographing every single step of the cooking process, I could not let these recipes pass through my life without comment.
They make me happy. In my soul. Happy soul.
And so I share them with you! May they en-happy your soul, too!
Also from the Pioneer Woman, homemade strawberry jam. That’s right. I’m so effing hardcore now. Canned and preserved my own fresh-made strawberry jam. Folks will be fightin’ over me, come the zombie apocalypse.
Please, if you love bread, try EricaLea’s No-Fuss Focaccia. It’s a gamechanger. No lie. This has become my standard go-to dinner bread
EricaLea’s recipe is very Italian in flavor, which is tasty fine-dandy. But! The recipe is awfully versatile. I’ve made the original, and used it to shamelessly wipe pasta bowls clean of any last trace of sauce. And I’ve also made a couple other versions…
Enjoy! I sho nuff did, and will again.
