What's Been Cooking Lately.

+making pickles (I'm working at crossing stuff off my Summer Bucket List).

+cold brew coffee is all the rage so I decided to give it a try. It turned out a bit weak but I'm thinking I should have let it brew a bit longer than the 12 hours that I did.

+a Summer Veggie Quiche (recipe coming soon!)

+poached eggs and toast for breakfast.

+dinner the other night. Cheese Stuffed Chicken, new potatoes from our garden and a summer salad.

+potatoes and garlic from the garden. I really love when we can start harvesting, there's really nothing at all like eating your own food that you grew, is there?

+we've been eating lots of salads lately since it's been so hot and I often really don't feel like cooking. Or eating, for that matter.

+my sweet little Princess eating strawberries and cheerios the other morning.


  1. I've been reading your lovely blog a a little while now...I really enjoy it. I just had to comment on your perfect, yummy looking poached eggs! They're my favorite way to eat eggs, but I just can't get them right. Mine are either undercooked, overcooked..... And certainly never as pretty as yours. Any tips?
    Your little Adri is just precious.

    1. Hi Sherry,
      Thanks for commenting!
      I always has trouble poaching eggs, and then a while back a found a vintage eggs poacher. It makes two at a time and works SO well! It's basically a tin that sits inside a small pan with a lid. I grease the little tin, and place two eggs in, put water in the bottom and close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes. I think if you look online you should be able to find one. Sorry I can't be of much more help than that!

    2. I know exactly what you're talking about. I guess I'll have to break down and buy one if I ever hope to eat a decent poached egg!
      Thank you for your help, Rosie !

  2. It all looks good! for the cold brew coffee - I do this all the time, regular coffee hurts my stomach - get a nice bold grind. Use 2 ounces (weighed on a scale) to 4 cups of water and let it sit at least 12 hours. Then to make the coffee cold - i use 2/3 to 3/4 of a cup, add a splash of half and half (maybe a teaspoon or so) and fill with almond milk. Add sweetener to taste and ice. the flavored coffees work nice for this, I like Folger's Caramel Drizzle or Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Bun.

    1. Hi Raquel :)
      Okay, so maybe I didn't use enough coffee! That might have been my problem. I think I'll give it another try now and see how it goes.
