Mason Jar Soap Dispensers

These dispensers are available in a variety of jar sizes and pump shapes- each one is […]

Pickles, Get Your Pickles!

I am really excited about this Saturday’s class- instead of focusing on one food, we’re going to be pickling a bunch of different veggies.  Zucchini, cucumbers, beans, peppers, maybe even some daikon radish if I can find it at the market on Wednesday! Bring your own veggies to the class and get $10 off the […]

Summer Lovin’

My summer is getting busier and busier- and I’m loving it!  Summer classes are in full swing at First Presbyterian, and there are lots of library demos coming up- Fanwood, Old Tappan, and Kenilworth are next!  And of course, I’ve been canning away.  My fridge is full of lots of little bits that didn’t quite […]

Disasters and Drinks

Here’s a fun story for you.  I was canning lime curd earlier this week (limes were on sale at ShopRite, I couldn’t help myself) and as I was pulling some empty jars out of the canner, I managed to pour an entire jar full of nearly-boiling water down my arm.  After I recovered from the […]

Reunited, and it feels so good

I’m pretty sure that most of you know that I am a proud alumna of Douglass College.  I attended my 10th reunion this weekend, and we had a great time reminiscing about the days when we were going to change the world with our chalking  😉  One of the annual reunion events is the spa […]

You gotta keep ’em macerated…

Last weekend was a bit of a strawberry-palooza over here.  My husband came home on Friday with an entire flat of strawberries from the Rutgers Gardens Farm Market, (I had pre-arranged the pickup with the farmer) and they topped off the box, which was just crazy- I had over 13 pounds of strawberries! I consulted […]
