Before all the outside spring work starts on The Farm, I always make sure to finish up my indoor winter projects. The snow is starting to finally melt (can you believe I was starting to plant my garden at this time last year!?) and I know the outside work will start soon. So I have been tending to my house plants to make sure they are in order. Many of the plants are starting to become too large for their pots. Having grown quite a bit, they need to be divided and placed in two different flower pots. After time, the roots of plants become too large and overgrown for their pots. You can keep the plant as one and remedy the problem by transplanting it to a larger pot. Or like me, you can divide the plant into smaller ones and start new plants. All you need is some light potting soil and flower pots (depending on how many starts you want to plant). This repotting is simple but absolutely essential to keeping your indoor plants healthy and happy. It also excites me for all the spring planting I will soon have coming up outside!
I am all for quick and delicious desserts, especially ones that are elegant enough for guests but simple enough for a last-minute family meal. There are so many uses for a good custard. This one incorporates warm chai spices that are simply perfect for any season!
This never ending winter has given me so many days in the kitchen scouring over recipes and perfecting flavors. Believe me when I say my freezer is stuffed full or trial runs! As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been having a great time leafing through old family recipes and seeing certain ingredients crossed out and others having “very good” written by them. This is one of those recipes. A very good all-in-one oatmeal cookie. I must admit, I agree this is a delicious and almost candy-like cookie, chocked full of so many good things. It’s definitely an indulgence worth making!
After working a long day, the last thing you want to think about is dinner. But you want something homemade, delicious and quick! What better than a roast chicken?! It may sound like a long process, but this goes together in a cinch and is gorgeous enough for company or just a simple night in.
