Our ginger ale finished fermenting, and we bottled it in these cute soda bottles. It didn’t get as “bubbly and effervescent” as I hoped from the description, but it does taste kinda carbonated! A bit of a zing to it! Plus all those good bacteria swimming around in there. Next we are trying a beet/apple soda!
These cookies are one of my very favorites. Many of my favorite things revolve around jam. Baby B was a great helper right up until the second batch needed rolling out. He didn’t believe me that I just needed a few more minutes, before the dough got all warm. But somehow all the cookies got made, and eaten!
I’ve been experimenting with different ferments this winter. We made a lemon dill sauerkraut that is delicious, a beet kraut that is great with potatoes, and we’ve got a spicier kraut mix still bubbling away. Now we are trying out a ginger bug, that we can add to juice to make soda. I was hoping for more bubbles, but we still have a couple more days until it’s ready to try! Have you been cooking up anything exciting??
These are such gorgeous cakes! So colorful and intricate. I know my 10-year-old self would have been in awe over the treat covered ones, and my current self loves the flower ones. Too pretty to eat! From @unbirthdaybakery on Instagram!
Me and baby B took to the kitchen last week to make our own granola! I’ve made granola before, but this was a no-extra-sugar variety. We added some cinnamon, a little honey, pecans, and dried cranberries. Pour some over plain, healthy yogurt, and we got ourselves a good breakfast! (Of course, B only enjoys watching us eat it, but loves helping in the kitchen.)
Our oven is back, and better than ever! We celebrated its return with some blueberry muffins. We are also looking forward to baked potatoes, roasted broccoli, lasagna, and of course, cookies!
My birthday is coming up, and while I’m more of a simple cake and ice cream girl, how pretty are these!?
