Have you ever tried to make ghee? Its basically a kind of clarified butter. You melt down butter, and take the milk solids out, so it makes a scoopable, super melty butter. A little bit like the butter in the tub, but better for you! We like to melt some in a skillet, and toast bread in it. Or make really toasty grilled cheeses.

We followed these directions here to make some. Try it and put it on some toast!


It does take a little while to make, so I usually catch up on some reading while its melting away.


butter pecan cookies

I finally changed my name on my drivers license. Crossing that off every to-do list I have made in the last 3 months.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I planned some baking time. Nothing warms up a house like morning baking. I made some butter pecan cookies. I know I have toasted pecans before, but I think I burned a couple. Shhhhh.


These cookies are like the ultimate in butter. They aren’t the prettiest, but they do taste warm and cozy.butterpecan

Side note: I always feel more awesome the more clothes I pile on. This is a tshirt, a sweatshirt, and a button-up on top. Layers for days. You can take a girl out of the Northwest, but you can’t take the Northwest out of a girl.somanyclothes
