Last weekend when we were visiting Baudette for Darby and Deanna's wedding, I was going through my Grandma's recipe box. I was pulling out ones that I wanted to copy down and Eric had the bright idea to take pictures of the recipes I wanted instead.


If you look in the top right hand of the recipe card you can see written "Roxy Wedding Punch". I thought that was pretty fun to find.

IMAG0239 I like all the notes she wrote about who the recipes were from, how good they were, and the fact that it is "OK" if the dough is stiff and dry.

My Grandma said this is the best muffin recipe she has ever made.

IMAG0235 She was ahead of her time with this recipe. My Mom said that  Grandma would always have missionary ladies over when they came to visit the chapel and have them teach her new recipes, so they grew up eating all sorts of ethnic foods before it was a popular thing to do.

I remember having this dish every once in a while when we were kids and just not being able to get enough of it. Then I found me my own Indian, he doesn't appreciate it when I tell him I married him for the food...

Growin' My Grub



This year I decided to take the plunge and grow a garden.


Some baby cukes, to try my hand at pickle-making again, since my last batch was so wildly successful.

The only draw back? WEEDS!

I make myself go out at least once a week and fill up a full bucket with weeds and ooh boy does that bucket look big when I first start out.. I have been known to toss in clods of dirt and small dogs on occasion to get the job over with...



Some yellow pear tomatoes.

I'm like a kid in a very healthy candy shop, I have to check every thing three times a day to see if anything more is popping up!


I have yellow zucchini squash coming out of my ears already, which I am thrilled about.. Eric?? Not so much.


Red peppers.


Banana peppers.

And waay more. I have a little tiny garden patch with A LOT of vegetables.. especially zuchinni!

Eric is such a lucky guy...
