Happy 2021!

I hope you all had restful enjoyable holiday breaks and were able to come into the new year feeling like your phone after a long overnight software update and super-charging session! (Hm… I’m going to keep workshopping that new year greeting…)

We had about the loveliest fake vacation to Florence possible and I want to tell you all about it before I scamper off to filming GMF (season 8!):

  1. We basically just ate a bunch of mozzarella and prosciutto all week that we splurged on from the fancy section of the grocery store (by the bakery, not in the deli section) and it was delicious. We even acquired burrata which I’ve never seen in a grocery in Grand Forks. That was a TREAT! We had it all week long with loads of basil and the focaccia and Tuscan bread from Emiko’s book.

  2. For dinners, we cooked through Emiko’s book and made a great brick chicken, lots and lots of beans, homemade pappardelle, and one of the best homemade pizzas I’ve ever had in my life. It was so simple, just San Marzano tomatoes from the can, fresh mozzarella, and basil… but the thing I loved extra about it was dusting the dough with semolina flour for some good crunchiness.

  3. We celebrated Christmas outside with steamy bowls of ribollita and the weather was perfect. Not that I love talking about the weather but if we’re going to be forced to socially distance on a wintery holiday, we could at least get nice sitting-outside weather and we did!

  4. Our Florentine art exploration included making a “fresco” with Bernie, AKA we taped a big sheet of paper to the wall and drew all over it with crayons and rubber stamps. We made a mountain scene with ducks, so many ducks.

  5. We took a “day trip to ski* in the Italian Alps**” (*sled on a giant inflatable unicorn, **on a hill in town)

  6. We went “wine tasting* all over the hills of Tuscany**” (*swing set testing, **playgrounds of Grand Forks)

  7. Had not one but two blissful spa days, AKA I sat in a coconut tub with a face mask on and read Adam Rippon’s book for the entirety of Bernie’s nap time. Then used a lot of cuticle oil.

  8. Watched some great TV on the “airplane” (couch), including The Flight Attendant, Bobby and Giada in Italy, Bridgerton, Wonder Woman, Big, and Soul. Wow, Soul.

  9. Meditated! I got the Calm app and wow my brain is like “Thank U, self!!” 10/10 recommend.

Where should we fake go to next?? Should we time travel back to the 90s and only eat pizza rolls and dunkaroos all week? Ooh that sounds fun… Alright g2g, figure skating nationals is on!! Bye!!!

-yeh!

Typically around this time of year, I start relying on my slow cooker a lot more than I usually do. It’s like I get in a cooking funk as soon as the Christmas decor comes done.

There are numerous slow cooker recipes that I typically always have the ingredients for in my pantry and this Mississippi Pot Roast is one of them.

That way if I’m not in a cooking mood, I can toss a few things into my slow cooker and still have a home cooked meal on the table with very little effort.

You Think 2020 Was the Year of Sourdough? Look Back to the Gold Rush

When the discovery of gold near Coloma, Calif., in 1848 ignited a massive influx of prospectors to the area from other regions of the United States, as well as Europe, Asia, and Australia, many arrived with little more than the clothes on their backs. …

When the discovery of gold near Coloma, Calif., in 1848 ignited a massive influx of prospectors to the area from other regions of the United States, as well as Europe, Asia, and Australia, many arrived with little more than the clothes on their backs. Among the few prized possessions brought along for the journey were jars of sourdough starter—the mixture of fermented flour and water used to make bread without commercial yeast—that held the promise of a full belly. To thousands of hopeful (and hungry) miners who risked it all in pursuit of striking it rich, those jars of cultivated wild yeast represented a semblance of stability and a taste of home, even amid backbreaking work and an uncertain future. Legend has it that the miners even hugged their starters at night to keep the cultures warm and help them survive.

Sourdough starter served as a lifeline to which the miners literally clung. Due to the sudden population explosion, farms couldn’t keep up with the surge in demand, rendering affordable food an elusive commodity in many parts of the state. Moreover, the discovery of gold excited locals, too: As California’s farm workers left their agricultural jobs to pan for gold, farms that had once supported the state's economy sat abandoned. Local food merchants, smelling opportunity as droves of miners rushed the goldfields, inflated prices on everything from fruit to flour: A single egg could command as much as $3 (more than $80 per egg in today’s dollars). Suffice it to say, many merchants struck more riches than gold miners; after traveling thousands of arduous miles to stake their claim to wealth, most hopefuls in the mining camps ultimately made little money. Faced with limited funds and resources, the miners could extend a small amount of purchased flour by mixing it with sourdough starter—a more affordable solution than buying a fresh loaf of bread.

Did You Know Your Cane Furniture Needs to be Moisturized?

Add a piece, or a set, of cane furniture to any room and the atmosphere instantly relaxes. Your proximity to the nearest beach dwindles, your vacation days increase (and inch closer), sunshine glimmers in the forecast. Barefooted-ness becomes a regular consideration. Ice cream for dinner. I'm not kidding. Have you tried it?

The plants used to make woven, natural-fiber furniture take many shapes, but two of the most common materials used are rattan and cane. Often confused and used interchangeably, rattan and cane are different applications of a similar material. Rattan includes over 600 different species of solid timber vine (different from a material like bamboo, which is hollow), native to tropical forests. Cane, on the other hand, is actually a specific part of rattan, which is removed from the thorny outer skin of the plant. It’s naturally very light in color, somewhat shiny, and far less porous than other parts of rattan—making it exceptional at repelling liquid spills.

I swear I’m not crazy for sharing pumpkin muffins in January!

If you make them, you will see why. They are year-round worthy!

I know, I know! Is it still pumpkin season? I quizzed you in my week in the life post and instagram and the majority of you still wanted to see these pumpkin muffins. I’d say it’s pumpkin season until about march, so we’re good. Some of you said it’s pumpkin season year round! My kids would agree.

These are like my pumpkin dream cake, in small bite-size portions!

Oh my GOSH these muffins. We love them. We have made them so.many.times. They are the kids’ favorite muffins AND – now, this is huge. Eddie, a self-proclaimed pumpkin hater – eats these muffins and adores them. Loves them!

I partially attribute that to my minimal use of spice. I ramble about it all the time – I love pumpkin things, but I don’t necessarily love pumpkin SPICE things. You know? It is a fairly bland flavor on its own, so I do find that I like a bit of spice or savory seasonings. Just not a lot.

I’m warning you here, in case you want to double the spice amount in the recipe below!

This recipe makes about 18 perfectly plump muffins. They are so darn good!

Now this isn’t my first time making pumpkin muffins. I have a chai version here and an almond version here. I also used a simply recipes version and mashed up the three, finding a middle ground with the flour and making sure I could use the entire can of pumpkin so it didn’t go to waste. 

And we have these beauties that came out perfectly! 

These are the type of muffins that are delicious enough for dessert. I mean, let’s be honest, muffins are really just cake masquerading as muffins for breakfast. I will never say no to that. 

Especially if they are a little warm with a dollop of butter.

Oh my gosh. Now I’m starving.

So while I know it’s not technically pumpkin season, I couldn’t help but share so you could make a weekend treat. These are so well loved in our house and a fun thing to make with the kids. They fight over the mixing bowl and all that, but in the end we all get to eat them.

And that’s the real win!
