It’s that time of the year when holiday entertaining and last minute visits are in full swing. For this reason I try to keep something sweet on hand. ⠀
The only problem with that is too many large batches of anything equals me having way more sweets than usual. So I like making smaller batches when I can so that doesn’t happen. ⠀
This loaf of Eggnog Pound Cake does just that. Get the recipe by clicking the link in the Bio or go to https://www.simplylakita.com/eggnog-pound-cake/
Handmade Pie Crust?? Handmade Pie Crust!! .
Each and every one of our pies is made by hand, from scratch, starting with a hand mixed, hand rolled crust. Just like this! (Except a little slower!) .
The pastry knowledge is in my hands. I know the way the pastry should feel, the weight of the dough, the texture and the resistance. The effects of humidity and temperature. Summer wheat vs winter wheat. I know when the dough is right and when I’m spot on. When the pastry is just right. .
A finished crust is a canvas ready for coloring and flavoring with fruit or nuts, something familiar or an experiment. This is happy work for my hands. .
Lunch part 2 was homemade vegan lasagna. It was made at work. No noodles - spinach instead. It was pretty good! I have leftovers still!
Lunch part 1 was a side salad.
only one day and a limited supply of ingredients results in these lil puppy dog sugar cookies as an early christmas present for chloe’s groomer!
When the weather outside is frightful, a slice of fudge makes everything delightful! 🎁🎄
Throwback to yesterday’s meal suitable for a cold evening! Chicken and vegetable casserole with cayenne pepper and cumin served with creamy mashed potato. Don’t know about you but I could just eat a plate of mash on it’s own 😂! This is easy to eat, easy to cook (a “throw everything together” kind of dish) and very warming. 👏🏾 all around!
We love the farm life! Especially when we can make homemade tamales from scratch! Swipe right to see the process!
Did you know? Tamales are a traditional Mesoamerican dish made from our organic mashed masa corn and steamed in its own corn husk? The toppings- well that’s your call!

🌟 “All men have stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems... But all these stars are silent. You-You alone will have stars as no one else has them... “

1st attempt at Homemade Tortilla Chips - quite literally, from scratch (corn flour --> tortillas --> seasoned chips). Made only with the simplest ingredients - corn flour, water, himalayan salt, various spices & olive oil.
Result was a wee bit dry, and tortillas were too thick to finish as light and crispy chips 😐 In spite of reading up voraciously on all possible hacks to make tortillas without a tortilla press....I'm just Not. Handy. Enough.
Nevertheless - never-say-never. Next time will be a success! Going to sleep on it for now. 😔
