Sourdough Biscuits for Beginners

Greetings all! I’ve been working on a new video tutorial – sourdough biscuits! And I’m calling them “for beginners” because I really am a beginner and it will likely show in the video. Just a bit. ;) If you keep sourdough in your kitchen, I hope you’ll give these a try and if you’ve yet to work with sourdough, you can find the step by step guide in the video description on Youtube. Happy baking friends and if you make these, DO let me know how they turn out!   Biscuit ingredients: 2c. flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1...

Homemade Tortillas ~  (Kid) Fun in the Kitchen

Tortillas are a big staple in our home. We’re always fixing up burritos or tacos or my husband is making a batch of his famous enchiladas. I buy them every time I go to the store and even still, we’re always running out. I got the idea to make homemade tortillas a few years ago and had tried it a few times, but the results weren’t…great.  Struck again with a craving for homemade tortillas, I tried a new recipe–and it was a dream! So the next time we were ready to whip up a batch, seeing as we were at it, we decided to make lots and freeze...

How to Make { Easy } Cake Balls

With Spring-almost-Summer all around us, it’s that time of year for outdoor gatherings and picnics! Recently, at our Easter celebration, my sis-in-law brought this recipe in the shape of eggs. They were such a hit and I couldn’t eat just one so I had to ask her how she made them. I couldn’t believe how easy it was! One great thing about these is there are a few steps and since each step can be done days apart, it makes this a non-hectic recipe on the day of your party. You may have had made these or had them, often with sticks known as “cake...

Autumn Goodness…Carrot and Ginger Soup

I have a confession. I’m mildly obsessed with soup. Oh yes. I could order it all year long. You know that summer corn chowder from Panera. Let’s just say I eat my fair share. ;) Come cooler weather… and I can’t pass up an excuse for a pot of bubbling soup on the stove. Add in some homemade bread in the oven and it just makes the house cheery and mama happy knowing that dinner is set and ready to go. Soup. It does the heart good. :) I made this for a fall-themed baby shower and all the ladies wanted the recipe, so I figured now was the perfect time...
