Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies – Autumn’s Favorite Cookie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies – Autumn’s Favorite Cookie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies I think Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies are a tad bit fussy at the baking stage but they are worth it! Preheat your oven to 325°, lower than usual for cookies. And, lay a sheet of parchment paper on your cookie sheet. That’s it, the fussy part. The rest is “normal.” Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are an awesome autumn treat with a cup of hot tea, coffee or chocolate! They pack up well to take on the road because they’re soft…

Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe – On The Fire

Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe – On The Fire

Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe After a long day of housework, bakery work, gardening and hunting, one of my favorite things to eat is a mug of Creamy Tomato Soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. This time of year there are ripe tomatoes to use up – they need to be eaten fresh, cooked into a recipe, canned or frozen. This soup recipe is simple and doesn’t require a lot of attention. You man use fresh or canned paste tomatoes (or…

Italian Herb Vinegar Recipe – On The Fire

You can make the bottle look nice by dipping the neck of the bottle in melted paraffin…

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers (low heat option)

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers (low heat option)

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers The Jalapeno peppers started producing fast and furious all of a sudden. There are plenty in the freezer for winter (you don’t need to blanch peppers before freezing) and more dehydrated. I had some free time one afternoon so I started experimenting with cream cheese filling for Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. Plain cream cheese is fine. It doesn’t overpower the flavor of bacon and it smooths over some of the heat of Jalapeno, but we like…

Ten Minute Salsa – It’s Too Hot to Cook

Ten Minute Salsa – It’s Too Hot to Cook

Ten Minute Salsa It’s too hot to cook. When it comes to food this time of year I want to head to the high tunnel before the sun heats it up, pick what we’ll have for supper and whatever else is ready to be put up, and be done with it. If we cook meat it happens on the grill. Sometimes all I want after a long hot day of work is this Ten Minute Salsa and some chips. Go…

Salmon Cakes Recipe – Use Fresh or Canned Salmon

Salmon Cakes Recipe – Use Fresh or Canned Salmon

Salmon Cakes Recipe My Salmon Cakes recipe makes a salmon cake that’s excellent as a main dish or an appetizer. I’m quite happy to have a salmon cake and a salad for lunch or supper. You may use your fresh-caught, a filet, or two cans of salmon. Cans are quick and simple and since they don’t require refrigeration you can take them camping. I like to use a red, orange or yellow Bell pepper to add a little color to…

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp – No Artificial Sugar Added

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp – No Artificial Sugar Added

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp Picking cherries is a labor of love. Our trees are wild so we don’t know what they are, and they are not a variety we’d have chosen. The fruits aren’t close together in a convenient group so it’s a lot of up and down the ladder to get the three cups I need for Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp. It’s worth it. I love cherries and this recipe is so quick and simple it can be made…

Blueberry Muffins Recipe – Sweet Crunchy Tops

Blueberry Muffins Recipe – Sweet Crunchy Tops

Blueberry Muffins Recipe Faaaaavorite blueberry muffins recipe! I made a batch before going to our camp for a few days this week. I went out to the dock to watch the sunrise at 4:25 am with a cup of steaming coffee (it was 45°!) and a gigantic blueberry muffin. Washington County, Maine produces something like 95% of the world’s wild blueberries, though these days they’re a highly cultivated but still wild in nature plant. The plants are low bush, growing…

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble – No Artificial Sweeteners

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble – No Artificial Sweeteners

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Recipe Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble is one of our favorite desserts. Late-bearing rhubarb ensures I have fresh rhubarb at the same time the strawberries are ripe. If you don’t have both ripe together you can freeze clean, slice and freeze the rhubarb in quart bags. This recipe works with frozen strawberries but you’ll need to be very careful to drain the juice. Save that juice! You can make strawberry jelly. Do you know the proper way to harvest…

Coleslaw Recipe – How to Change Up the Basic Recipe

Coleslaw Recipe – How to Change Up the Basic Recipe

Coleslaw Recipe What’s a picnic without coleslaw! I think of this coleslaw recipe in the spring and summer, and then again in the fall and winter. This really is an all-season side dish that suits a lot of meals. This spring we’re packing this in the cooler to take with us when we’re picnicking on the bank of a stream we’ve been fly fishing, and while we’re scouting for turkeys as the season is about to open. It’s always a…
