Pecan Pie

I have a recipe to share with you!

A pecan pie made with real maple syrup and no Karo syrup. I've been tweaking this recipe for a couple years now, but I'm finally where I want it to be.

 Pecan Pie

 1 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs
3 tbsp. melted butter
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. vanilla bean paste or plain vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. whiskey
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans.

In a bowl whisk all ingredients together except the pecans. Place pecans in an unbaked pie shell and pour syrup over pecans. Bake at 350 for 45 min. 
Or until top starts to puff up. 

Happy Thanksgiving week!

Making Apple Butter

I've always wanted to make apple butter and yesterday I finally did! My friend, Amy, invited us over to make it behind their barn and it was a lovely time.

Here is a link to watch a video of the day!

Happy fall!

It's been a busy last two weeks- so yesterday I decided to let Caroline bake cookies for her Dad. 

Here is a link to the video.

Barn Sale 2016

Another wonderful barn sale has come and gone. The weather stayed nice and clear. It was a little warm but better than rain (i kept telling myself while I was sweating setting up my booth)... :)

It seems to get better every year. This year was another great group of talented vendors; enjoying what they do, interacting with community and sharing their talents. 

Here are some images I caught of the event. I see now I missed some vendors; it's starting to get hard to capture them all!


See you next year!

The Barn Sale at Spring Creek Roller Mills

It's time for fall y'all... and that means the Barn Sale at Spring Creek Roller Mills is happening this month! I've posted photos of this event before. For photos of previous years click on the year; 2012, 2013 2014, 2015! I think I've made or sold something different every year, but variety is good, right?!

This year I plan to do a booth with my new(est) business venture.

Here is a peek of my tiny shop at Dressed Up Threads to give you a taste of what is to come...

Oh, and I think I talked my husband into making 
some cutting boards to sell as well.

I hope to see you there!
