So, not only is my handsome husband handsome, but he's quite a cook and baker, as well. He's made crepes a few times lately, and they are heavenly.With natural peanut butter and sliced strawberries, or stewed rhubarb (would be even better with whipped cream!) - they're delicious. And easy! (Or so he tells me.)

He's also made his Nana's biscuits, using the heart cutter from Austen. Aren't they beautiful?

And soap! (I handle the soap, not so much Adam.) Tomorrow is the March Winds market at Beacon, from 9:30 until 1:00. My soaps (not these particular ones, obviously) are wrapped and ready to go - I can't wait to see everyone! There will be freebies with sales until they run out, so be there early!

I've been having a lovely week off - Ingrid and I went for a drive yesterday and ate at Tempest for lunch. It was delicious, and the service was amazing. I also stocked up at Fox Hill Cheese - more about that soon. Also, I now have tickets (and a handsome date) for Old Man Luedecke in Wolfville on April 29! I am SO excited.

I hope that you've had a good week, too!


  1. It's all wonderful. Thanks for sharing the biscuits recipe link. I had forgotten all about it and actually meant to try them last year. Lots of luck at the market. I'm sure nobody can resist your soapy goodies!

  2. Thanks for posting about The Tempest. I've heard about it before but never went. Dave and I will have to drop in one of these days (maybe on one of our summer day trips). I love Fox Hill Cheese. Last summer, Comeau's Farm Market, in Meteghan Center carried some of their cheese and yogourt. Oh my gosh, the yogourt was so creamy and rich; delicious. I'm hoping they'll carry the FHC products again this year.

    See ya tomorrow at the market ! OK, and those biscuits are making my mouth water.

  3. All this talk of cheese, yogourt and soap is getting me excited! We start milking our goats in 2 weeks or so and I can't wait to try making some of these product!

    Crepes with PB and Strawberries made my mouth water!

  4. Oh my gosh, aren't crepes just the best. We make them with frozen strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, heated gently and mushed slightly with a little added sugar (but not too much), and then roll all that up inside and put some vanilla yogurt on top (kind of like whipping cream, but healthier) and they are so delicious and filling.

  5. Amber, let me know how the biscuits turn out. :)

    Vickie, thanks for reminding me about Comeau's! I had forgotten that they carried some Fox Hill goodies. YUM. And Tempest was great - definitely worthy trying out.

    Leon, I wish we were closer! I would love to get my hands on some of that milk to try cheese. And soap! Congratulations on your little goats - I'm looking forward to having a proper look at your blog later on.

    Susan, that sounds delicious! Phillip always asks for the "Four Berry Blend" (i.e. strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackbberries) so that would be right up his alley. And mine, too!
