How was your month, friends? It was a fun one for me. I suited up for the snow and then played barefoot at the beach within the same week, roasted strawberries for ice cream, made pasta from scratch, and started a DIY chalkboard paint project. March always feels like a seasonal purgatory to me, with winter produce going out of season before spring’s bounty has hit the markets in full force, so I spent some time cooking down my pantry and playing around with different ways to use up the tail end of winter citrus. Check back later this week for more on that. While you’re here, take a look at some interesting, useful, and slightly oddball things I found online this month:
I’m already a fast reader, but man. This could be neat to try.
I can imagine several ways that this could provide some serious front-porch entertainment. Hours of it.
“Today’s Holstein cow is a product of human engineering, as people have altered its genome by 22 percent over the past 40 years.”
A great book for the budget-minded, from-scratch home cooks out there.
I could probably spend way too much time doing this.
Is there anything honey can’t do?
Love pork? Then you’ll want to know your pig parts.
What kind of fun things did you do this month, in or out of the kitchen? Did you try anything outside of your comfort zone? Big successes or failures? Tell me about it in the comments!
