Bourbon Marinated Meat/Fish Kabobs

It’s grilling season! Here’s a great marinade that can be used on all kinds of meat (and fish as well)!

Redbud!

Spring has most definitely sprung here at our cabin!

New Life for an Old Planter

It's finally gardening season here at the cabin! Here's a great springtime project documented here last spring... Don't have room for a traditional garden? Want to conserve water? Away from home often? Try a sub-irrigated planter! Sub irrigated planters have a water reservoir beneath the soil level that is fed from the top, using a …

In like a Lion…

Whew! What a night. Another Nor'easter ripped through here overnight, complete with thundersnow! The snow was wet and heavy, and we lost a number of trees and branches. Luckily only one very small tree on our little cabin. It is times like these that I am especially happy to be sheltered under a timberframe! We're …

Sugar Shack

Spring is coming! It's maple sugaring season here in New England. I captured this Sugar Shack image in Plainfield, Vermont. Sugaring sure takes a lot of firewood!

Egg Roll in a Bowl

Here's what's cookin' at the cabin this week: our own version of the LCHF / Ketogenic recipe that has taken the internet by storm! So easy and so tasty! We've tweaked the recipe and added a couple of choice toppings to make this quick and easy dish even better!

Throwback

Cabin life in winter finds us indoors more often, keeping cozy and working on various indoor projects. The other day, as outdoor temperatures hovered in dangerous sub-zero territory, I was happily parked near the wood stove, flipping through some old photographs for a Genealogy project that I work on here and there as time allows, …

Happy New Year!

Pretty lights here on this last evening of 2017. Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy and cabin-filled 2018!

Winter has arrived

An ice storm, followed by artic temperatures has encased everything in ice! It is (literally) brilliant when the sun shines - everything just sparkles! I keep running out to take pictures and then running right back in again to warm up by the woodstove. Very real chance of frostbite in very short order out there! …

Silent Night

"I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars." ~Og Mandino Happy holidays from us to you! Thank you so much for joining us here. Looking forward to another year of cabin life!

“Primal” Pizzelles

Here's our primal take on a classic holiday cookie: grain-free, just slightly sweet and with a nice, crisp crunch...

Broccoli Cheddar Bacon Soup

Winter is here at our cabin—we've got snow in the forecast and the temps are dropping rapidly. Time to make a big pot of hearty Broccoli Cheddar Bacon soup...

How sweet it is!

Wood’s in!

We've been working hard this last month or so cutting, splitting, hauling and stacking seasoned wood from around the property for our winter heat. The old saying really is true: Heating with wood warms you twice (and by my estimation, 5 times for us in this case)! When you depend on a trusty woodstove to …

Easy, Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

Here's what's cookin' at the cabin this week: Cheesy Green Beans and Bacon! We enjoyed this quick and easy side dish with a roasted chicken and topped off the plate with some tasty Russian dressing. Delicious! This dish would also work well with Thanksgiving turkey, for those celebrating the holiday in a a couple of weeks. I'm …
