Old Stove Retrofit and Huevos Rancheros

If you’ve been following for awhile, you’ll know that we started a big kitchen restoration nearly two years ago. It was everything you might imagine comes with restoring a 120-year-old farmhouse. Part of that project involved retrofitting an old Round Oak Chief stove that’s possibly as old as our house. Today, the team over at Rory’s…

Farmhouse Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

First of all, let me just say these cookies are delicious. You don’t have to want to be healthy to still just totally dig these. My daughter brought them to school and gave them to her friends. She also ate 7 of them. My son ate 6. They’re not huge (although you can make ‘em…

Spring garden planting videos.

It was one of those vacations that show just how much we needed to get away but didn’t even know it. And now we’re back and…

Cashew Arugula Pesto

There isn’t much growing in our garden right now ‘cept for some kale and arugula and a few spidery mustards.

Farmhouse Breakfast Sandwich.

Nothing fuels our kids for a long, cold PNW winter day better than a farm-fresh breakfast sandwich. It’s basically what our kids eat every morning. It’s also a go-to for a late after-sports-practice dinner, and sometimes it appears in a lunchbox or two. What’s in a breakfast sandwich? Basically, the stuff you love. It’s a…
