I found out about this event from Facebook. I had never heard of Pecha Kucha before but it has become a popular event. I did some research on it and kind of got an idea of what it was about before going but still wasn’t exactly what I had expected but it was fun and… Read More Pecha Kucha-Food
Only a few sections left in the cookbook. Last week I made the Maple and Herb Brined Pork Roast from the Poultry and Meat section of the Herbfarm Cookbook. The recipe recommended serving it with either the Potatoes in Herbed Cream or the Mashed Potatoes with Toasted Coriander. Since I had already made the Herbed… Read More Coriander Mashed Potatoes & Maple and Herb Brined Pork Roast
A recipe from the poultry and meat section of The Herbfarm Cookbook, and probably the quickest/easiest recipe I’ve made from the cookbook so far.

I think my chicken breasts were a little larger than… Read More Chicken Breasts in Tarragon Cream

I had already done a vegetable recipe in the Herbfarm Cookbook, the Braised Fennel Bulb. My plan was to do one recipe per category, but I just couldn’t resist trying a couple of the potato… Read More Potatoes!
This was my second time making lemon bars but first time with fruit. It really gives it a little extra flavor to cut down on the sweetness of the lemon custard. A recipe for lemon raspberry bars was tweeted by AllrecipesNews last Thursday so I bookmarked it and made it on Saturday but used strawberries… Read More Strawberry Lemon Bars
I’ve never been much of a cake baker and really haven’t made many cakes from scratch. If I bake a cake it’s usually from a box of Betty Crocker so thought this might be a good class to encourage me to walk away from the box and bake my own cakes. The class definitely opened… Read More Cake Baking Class from Not Without Salt
