My dear friend Angi from SchneiderPeeps sent me a box full of beautiful of Meyer lemons for Christmas. Obviously we had to make some lemonade (don’t worry, I’m sharing that recipe as well), and there will be sweets, but my daughter and I really wanted to use lemons in a savory dinner. I had made this recipe with regular lemons and cream, but with the sweetness of Meyer lemons that you don’t get in regular lemons, I wanted to try it omitting the cream. So my daughter and I donned our aprons and headed to the kitchen on a mission.
Mouthwatering lemon linguine will be a hit in your household, I’m sure. Meyer lemons makes this dish zesty without being sour, despite not having cream. It’s quick and easy for those busy nights where you’re short on time. If you want the play-by-play for this recipe, you can see it here. Don’t forget to yum this recipe! Yum … Read More
The same principles that apply to hatching chicken eggs can be applied to duck eggs. With the last batch of 18 duck eggs I incubated, 12 hatched, 1 died sometime in the last week of incubation for unknown reasons, and 5 were clear eggs. I didn’t candle the eggs, so I didn’t remove the clear eggs. This was a 66% hatch rate. A 50% hatch rate is considered very good.
As joyous as this time of year is, it can be incredibly expensive. Between the gifts and the parties, it’s far too easy to empty your bank account without even trying. However, you can give your wallet a break when it comes to Christmas decor. With so many wonderful holiday DIYs floating around, decking the halls has never been easier (or cheaper)!
In the first few streams of milk, any abnormalities such as blood or clots will be detected. The first few streams of milk contain the most bacteria and dirt. That’s why you need to use a strip cup.
I love Christmas. It’s my favorite holiday by a long shot. Doing anything DIY around Christmas is also one of my favorite things to do. Gingerbread houses. Ornaments. Food. Candy. Hot Chocolate. Presents. Basically anything I can make myself, I do.
I love the simplicity of this crochet Christmas ornament. It’s perfect to add a little something extra to your tree.
