Lemon Roasted Garlic Mixed Green Salad
Lemon Roasted Garlic Mixed Green Salad

Miss Thing had an interesting afternoon yesterday. Originally, she was wanting to go to the mall with one of her friends after school. She and I are still butting heads a little bit about whether she should be allowed to go to the mall by herself or not yet, and I gotta say I’m still [...]

Homemade Tarragon Brown Mustard
Homemade Tarragon Brown Mustard

In my recent kick to try and make as much of my own things as I can, I decided I’d try making some homemade mustard the other day. We had it on some roast beef sandwiches the other day with my Homemade Mayonnaise and together, they were incredible. It was so easy, I’m definitely going [...]

Serrano Pepper Hot Sauce
Serrano Pepper Hot Sauce

I had a bunch of Serrano Peppers left over from my guacamole I made the other day, that I’m pretty sure I wasn’t going to use, since I’m a big wuss, so I decided to try my hand at making up a batch of Hot Sauce for Mr. Man. Of course, since I’m a big [...]
