Spring has Sprung!!

  Hear Ye! Hear Yes, spring has sprung here at Long Ears Farm. This morning when I went out to do morning chores, I was greeted by the sound of a spring songbird. We have known each other for many years now, and I always say “See you next spring!” every time he flies south and I go indoors for the winter. I felt like a rebirth is occurring, within …

Grandmas Kitchen

I am an avid writer that enjoys the cooking experience, from planning the meals, to shopping ingredients, to spending time in the kitchen creating the dish. Most importantly I luv to eat what I cook, I enjoy the flavors and textures in all foods. I luv to immerse myself in the smells and aromas that invoke so many memories, isn’t it funny how a chocolate chip cookie can take you …

Warm and Delicious Bean and Pasta soup

[wprm-recipe-jump]        [wprm-recipe-print]   When you hear that a soup is rich in flavor, I’m sure you don’t think about a bean, veggies and tomato soup. However this soup is rich, rich, rich and so fulfilling! My favorite foody tasting expert gave me the thumbs up for this fabulous recipe I made the other night when the chill in the air forced all the windows closed, and the …

Warm and Delicious Bean and Pasta soup

Why is it when the weather turns colder, my taste buds go right into craving nice hearty meals, the soup recipes come out, like a flood gate just opened. During the summer I can eat like a rabbit and live off of salads, vegetables, and greens from the garden, I mean really I could sit out in the garden with a knife and fork and be very content. Now that …

Potato Latka

[wprm-recipe-jump]        [wprm-recipe-print]   Have I ever told you about my Potato Latkas obsession. Well I have an obsession with creating, making and especially eating potato Latkas.  Its the eating part of Potato Latkas that I like the most, as the making of these is labor intensive.

You see time flies.

You know the old saying Time flies!  You see I never really believed this before, however now I have proof. I went on a very relaxing vacation, so when I left it was warm and sunny, when I returned the earth had tilted a bit more and fall is upon us all. I woke up one morning at the same time I do each day, however this day was different, …

Garden Pickins

Every morning my ritual is to go directly to the garden, coffee cup in hand. When I got out there this morning my intention was to start picking as many peppers as I could find, and boy did I find alot! I was able to pick enough peppers, and green tomatoes and combine them with what I had from my earlier garden pick this week with the onions to make …

All Hail Francis!

We lost a dear friend on Aug 09 2021, who was from a different time and place for all three of us. Francis, (frannie) our beloved cat of 22 years!  My daughter was 9 when my daughter adopted her as a kitten, or as we say, Francis adopted us. We first met Frannie when we took pottery lessons from a very sweet old lady, who must have had 30 cats …

I wanted to get my baking game on for the county fair this year, so I chose the Italian Cream Cheese cake for the challenge.

My entry into the county fair was not originally the Italian Cream Cheese cake, it was a lemonade cake.  …
