One time I made marshmallows and there was a double boiler involved and that made me angry. Three different stages of temperature control and heating and cooling took place and by the end of it all, I decided I’d never, ever make them again. That is until the 5-minute homemade marshmallow came into my life.
I had to make homemade chicken and dumplings. Because as if overnight (and I’m keen to think that’s how it happened) it would seem as if the season has changed. Just last week I was roasting in the summer sun as I picked the ripe tomatoes from the vine, only to find myself bundled in
Despite that fact that I’d rather be gardening, let’s face it, Christmas is upon us. I love the beautiful Advent season at hand, don’t get me wrong, but I begin to feel anxiety when my feet and hands haven’t touched the warm earth in too long and (shutter) it’s not even the first day of
If you follow us on Instragram (@theelliotthome), you know that we’ve been baking Walnut and Parmesan Puffs AND that we’ve been in “Porklandia” for the past week and a half.

I got eggs. And not just in my ovaries. Tee hee. Sorry. Female joke. That is where the eggs are, right? In the ovaries? I don’t even know. I should know. But I don’t. Such is life. But what I’m talking about today is good ‘ol glorious chicken eggs. Chickens also have eggs in their
Before I introduce this tasty Lamb Tagine recipe, a little confession: I hate how few lamb recipes I have on the blog thus far. Truth be told, our lamb is our favorite meat that we produce. We raised Katahdin lambs here on the farm, this year we have six to harvest, so our supply of
