When we got married, I claimed the kitchen. This is my space to relax, destress, and create. From quick and simple sandwiches, to more elaborate desserts, I have always enjoyed the time I get to spend in the kitchen.
As our family has grown, my kitchen time has gone from pleasure to more of a necessity, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy it. I have made baby food for my older children, and each year I put up enough applesauce and jam to get through the entire year.
This year, I want to enjoy some more play time in the kitchen, and have come up with ten food projects that I would like to attempt this year. I’m not assigning these to any particular month, however some will be part of the DIY Blogger Project as well.
- Homemade Feta
- Crockpot Yogurt
- Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar
- Lemon Curd
- Puffed Pastry
- Smoked Brisket
- Grind My Own Sausage
- Homemade Mayonnaise
- Beef Jerky
- Cure Our Own Bacon
My husband is excited about having homemade beef jerky & trying our hand at curing bacon. Actually, I think all of us are really excited about the bacon, because, well, its bacon!
I’m looking forward to quality time in the kitchen, and sharing these food projects with my family, while teaching my children that real food comes from the kitchen.
