After filling up on mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving, scalloped potatoes are a great way to change it up for your Christmas dinners. This is a relatively simple recipe, but can take some time if you do it entirely the old fashioned way. Therefore,  let’s get a little modern with this vintage recipe and use a mandolin. There’s no need to sit and slice all of those potatoes by hand when you have one, and they’re...

Avocado is a must-have ingredient when it comes to making chorizo & egg burritos. We find that about once per week we’ll eat breakfast for dinner – based on what’s left in the cupboards. There was only one ingredient, the chorizo, that we didn’t already have in the fridge so this was a pretty simple recipe to put together. The ingredient that puts this recipe over-the-top is the fresh cilantro from the backyard garden. The...

Here’s some pics of our 2012 Christmas tree hunt. The spot we like to go to didn’t have any snow this year, but the weather was still awesome. It was a pretty muddy back-road due to the melt from the last snow.

It’s time to swap out the alternator in the 1978 Ford Bronco. The headlights began flickering and fading in and out, and then the truck suddenly died while I was driving it.  I had the local parts store test the alternator just to make sure, and it indeed had a bad diode. So, we ordered a new one and it’s time to put it in. We’ll walk you through the quick alternator removal, install, and...

We’ve got a late harvest of strawberries from the backyard garden. Normally, they’d be dormant by now but the extra heat as has been sweet. Some fresh fruit goes with just about anything – and it’s just fine by itself if that’s all you’ve got. We served it with rosemary rolls and butter. Grow tip: We picked the plants up from the local nursery 3 weeks ago and once we

There’s nothing like a green salad fresh from your own garden, or steamed broccoli that was freshly picked. If you haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing either of these – it’s really worth it. We have 4 garden beds that we planted back on November 12th. All of the plants are thriving and we’ve had a string of warm weather which surely helped.
