Second Chances

Many people celebrate the summer solstice for it’s astrological significance. As a gardener, I use it as a measure for the success of my efforts so far in the season. This season has some successes and some…other stories (if you know what I mean).

My Very Own Cookbook

I finally finished a little fun project I have been working on all year. I made my own cookbook. I decided, earlier this year, that I needed a little boost to get out of a cooking rut I was in. I knew what I needed was a project that would help my organize and simplify my recipes. I decided to collect my family favorite recipes and consolidate them into a cookbook that I would really use...not like those cookbooks that I buy that have one or two or three good recipes in them, but a cookbook where I would use ALL the recipes often.

How many times can I type the word cookbook?

Anyways, I knew that when it comes to me and projects and being the mother of five children, I have to break everything down into little steps. First I organized my recipe binder nicely. I took out recipes that I would never make and marked the one I knew already were going to make the cut into the book.

Then I slowly but surely started trying some new things. This is what really got me out of that rut...I was making the same things over and over and I knew I wanted a nice collection of 100+ recipes, and I only had a little more than half of that of die-hard favorites so far. I found recipes through friends, family, blogs, and books and recipe site. I experimented on my children and if the recipe was a majority-rules good one, I would make adjustments (more sauce, a little less spicy etc) to make it our own. If one didn't work out, I pitched the recipe and tried something new. We mixed things up and tried things again and again. I have to say-it was fun!

If your favourite thing in the summer is warm nights outside then likely one of your least favourite is getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. Making citronella candles in cans is a great recycling project that is inexpensive and effective.
