Bits and Pieces from the Farmhouse Kitchen

I hope this makes you smile. . . .as it did me. . . .After several days of farm chores. . . .weeding flower beds. . . .and preparing home cooked meals in between. . . .I'm beginning to look LIKE her. . . .A little mussy. . . .wearing an everyday cotton work dress. . . .hair tied up in a scarf. . . .tools of the trade in my pockets. . . .I'm prepared for anything. I'm taking a 'break' this morning to make Farmer John a chocolate cake. I intended to whip up the vintage recipe below. . . .I've never used Karo Syrup in icings . . . . Thought I might give it a try. . . .This one looked scrumptious. . . .and I liked the No Cook part of it. It reads: "Fluffy Marshmallow Frosting Without Cooking" It's so easy you'll top all your cakes with this good-looking icing. You whip it up in a bowl in a few minutes. Gives you lots and lots of smooth frosting. . peaks up high and handsome. It's never grainy. . .thanks to Karo Syrup. Try this 'no-cook' magic on your next cake--and tell your friends. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to 2 egg whites. Beat until frothy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, gradually beating until smooth and glossy. Slowly add 3/4 cup Karo Syrup (Red or Blue label) and continue beating until frosting stands in firm peaks. Fold in 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. For any tinted frosting, use Karo Syrup Red Label. Flavor varieties: Add 2 tablespoons cocoa; or 1 tablespoon grated orange or lemon rind; or sprinkle with 1 cup shredded coconut." I was a little hesitant to make the icing because of the egg whites, so I searched the net and found this on E-How: "The best way to prevent this (Salmonella poisoning) is to use pasteurized egg whites that can be purchased ready-to-pour in a bottle, as opposed to using fresh egg whites that you crack open yourself. Pasteurized eggs or egg whites sold in the refrigerator section of the supermarket have already been completely heated, so any bacteria inside was killed. These are safe to use in raw mixtures, such as frosting. Good to know. . . .Maybe a cream cheese icing for now? I do plan to whip up the Fluffy Marshmallow Frosting one day. . . .I love trying vintage recipes. . . .and the addition of coconut makes me think of Grandmother's coconut cake. . . .Her icing was different from the ones I use. . . .Wonder if Karo Syrup was her secret? One more 'mint green' thought. . . .(Did you notice the theme?) Coming in mid-May, my post A White House Cookbook of My Own will be featured in the online Summer issue of Ewenique Treasures Magazine! Hello my name is Gen, I publish a free online magazine that features bloggers such as yourself who contribute recipes, decor, crafts etc. I'd love to feature your post Covering a White House Cookbook and your blog in the upcoming Summer Issue The book cover of this vintage cookbook was pretty beat up, so I used a vintage kitchen towel to cover it. . . .The doilies are bookmarks. . . . There's a semi-tutorial with the post. . . .A simple thing. . . .and quickly done. Thanks to Gen for including me in her up-coming Summer issue! I must get back to work. . . .I'm loving the sunshine and being outdoors. . . . which makes gardening all the more sweeter. . . . Once I ice the cake, I'm off to soak up more rays! . . .from my farmhouse to yours. . .

Our Summer So Far

Hello! Oh my gosh, I have neglected this blog and I feel terrible about it. I don't even have a good excuse, other than, you know - LIFE. And Instagram, which I love, but will never completely replace blogging for me. This little blog is what started my home decor journey and I am not going to let it go. So, let's catch up a bit, shall we? Let's start where all things begin - in the home. My latest love of adding color hasn't let up at all and I am forever adding more layers of texture, pattern and print. My favorite find at the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY this year was the colorful quilt that is on the back of the sofa. It is vintage and was in a collection of old quilts marked for sale at $40 each. The colors called out to me immediately. It was in someone else's hands when I first spotted it, but when she put it down and walked away, I knew it had to come home with me. I think it's perfect for summer. I added back the blue and white gingham curtain panels (from Christmas Tree Shops last year) and the striped slipcover on the Stocksund chair from Ikea. We had a fun photo shoot in June with Cottages and Bungalows for their Spring 2020 issue so we still had our Spring decor up well until mid-June. It's always fun to look back and see a different perspective of our home from a professional photographer so I'm excited to see how it turns out. We've been lucky enough to be in a few magazines (I'm super excited about a fall one that I will share soon!!) but this one was special because it was my styling. It can be difficult (for me) to have someone come into my home and move my things around, while also adding in some of their own. It's not so much that I'm a control freak (those closest to me might not agree- haha!) as that most of the items that I've collected in our home mean so much to me. So it was a relief not to have to deal with that this time around. Here's a few shots I quickly took with my phone that day. I like to document the days that our WHOLE house is actually clean! :) I'll be sure to share when that magazine comes out. In the mean time, I have lots more to catch up on, both personal and home decor wise. I hope you'll stop back. And I hope that your summer is going well!!

My recent trip to Adamstown PA

My husband and I just went on an awesome day trip to Adamstown PA. Don't know if you know of Adamstown but it is filled with 7 miles of antiques centers, some HUGE, some small and in between. I saw tons and tons of Pyrex and only bought two pieces the rest that I bought was vintage jewelry ! But the two pieces that I bought are super rare and are in pristine condition. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves so much and can't wait to go back. I have not taken any pictures of my two Pyrex finds yet but I do have pictures of what I saw and passed up .
