This homemade chicken broth recipe serves as the base for many great dishes, including the best homemade chicken soup. If you’ve never made chicken broth, you need to add it to your recipe routine. It’s a great way to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your chicken dinner into extra meals.
This easy dandelion jelly recipe uses less sugar than most flower jelly recipes, creating a light and delicious jelly. To make your dandelion jelly, you'll need dandelion blossoms, water, lemon juice, sugar, Pomona's Pectin and calcium water. I like this recipe because it uses only one fourth as much sugar of most dandelion jelly recipes and no artificial color.
Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin
We enjoy this spaghetti squash au gratin recipe because it uses ingredients that we normally have on hand to make a yummy dish. The texture is rich and creamy, but with less carbs than scalloped potatoes.
My brother refers to spaghetti squash as “the tribbles of the garden”. When you have healthy plants, they can produce a LOT of squash. This year we had over 100 squash from one hill and a couple of volunteer plants. This left enough squash to share with the duckies, plus plenty to try out new recipes. Plant a whole package of seeds, and you may end up with enough squash to feed a small army.
I have quite a few new gardeners ask me, “When should I start seeds?” It really depends on where you are and what you are planning to grow. Thankfully, most seed companies will label the packets with basic growing information, but seed starting charts can help keep your gardening a little more organized. In this article, I'll share charts that show when to plant vegetables inside and out, fall and spring, plus organization strategies and tips for happier transplants.
Our dining room set is over 20 years old, so it's not too surprising that some of the wooden chair backs have come loose over time. Recently, two of the backs got to the point where they moved if someone leaned back. We assigned our sons to chair repair duty, and asked them to record the process to help others out. Our youngest, Duncan, demonstrates the repair in the video below. He also wrote a description of the repairs in case anything isn't clear in the video.
