Salt-Cured Eggs January 20, 2017 2 Comments

I am always excited to try a new egg recipe, and I thought I’d share this easy recipe for salt-cured eggs with you, too. Salt-cured egg yolks are solid, dry cured discs that can be used grated, sliced, or crumbled, almost like a cheese. They add a salted creamy flavor to any dish. It’s simple […]

Burns Night Scotch Eggs January 23, 2015 No Comments

Burns Night will be here soon–and we always celebrate at our house. Traditionally, you’d serve haggis at a Burns Supper… however, in the US you just can’t get real haggis (it’s an issue that some hilariously attribute to the obesity epidemic in the US. Instead, we serve one of my favorite stand-bys: Scotch Eggs. We have […]

3 simple cold weather treats for your flock January 9, 2015 4 Comments

When it’s cold outside, we stay huddled up by the fire. We have hot cocoa, or maybe a splash of Irish cream in the coffee. For dinner, we make a spicy pot of chili, or sometimes a delicious curry. But our chickens? They aren’t able to cook up their own treats (since I haven’t equipped the coop […]

Egg Show-Off: Carbonara November 2, 2014 3 Comments

I love trying new recipes and making novel dishes for company, but like everyone, I have a few tried and true favorites that I fall back on in a pinch. And call me a show off, but I love to serve my homemade and homegrown goodies. And I’m a total Egg Show-Off. So when possible, I […]

Graveyard Eggs from your Pet Chickens October 24, 2014 No Comments

One of the things I loved about living in China was the street food. There was delicious, delicious food available almost everywhere for next to nothing. (The same goes for New York, but it’s a lot more expensive!) I remember lucking into some delicious steamed red bean paste dumplings for about twelve and a half […]

Day of the Dead Eggs October 17, 2014 2 Comments

I love Halloween. I love dressing up. I love decorating. And I love making fun Halloween treats. This year, I decided to make some Day of the Dead Eggs. Yes, I know! Day of the Dead is NOT the same as Halloween, of course. The Day of the Dead is observed chiefly on November 1st and 2nd, and is […]

Chicken Poop Cookies for Halloween October 10, 2014 4 Comments

Not long ago, I posted a recipe for Chicken Poop Dog Treats. In preparation for Halloween, and in the tradition of gross-looking Halloween food like Lady’s Finger cookies, Meat Heads, Monster Mouths and so on, I thought I’d share a recipe for Chicken Poop Cookies (for people). Chickens aren’t the only ones that enjoy treats at […]

Breakfast for Dinner May 2, 2014 2 Comments

Yesterday morning, I decided I would make myself a nice simple breakfast. On an English muffin, I put a scrambled egg, melted Swiss cheese, and some thin slices of smoked ham that I’d fried just enough to crisp the edges. Sort of a real food version of fast food… and way, WAY tastier. That’s unusual for […]

Espresso Biscotti February 28, 2014 No Comments

After the exciting discovery of the secret to the best chocolate chip cookies in the world, I thought I would see if the improvements would carry over into other types of cookies… specifically one of my favorites: biscotti. I tend to like the Italian-style biscotti: made without oils, they’re hard and crisp confections that stand […]

Secret ingredient: Best Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World February 14, 2014 9 Comments

I never really “got” chocolate chip cookies until I tasted the cookies my husband made. Don’t get me wrong: I ate a chocolate chip cookie now and then, but there were probably a dozen or more other cookies I would prefer over chocolate chip if given a choice. Molasses cookies, gingerbread, snickerdoodles, almond lace, shortbread, […]
