  • One of my favorite aspects of autumn is the return of panini-pressed sandwiches. Made this turkey, Jarlsberg, Mojito slaw (cabbage & mint), and quince chutney (with fruits from my mom's quince bush) number today. Best enjoyed on the patio as autumn foliage drifts down from above.

  • One of the best aspects of all of these picnic photo shoots has been spending time with people I love. I sure do have some wonderful people in my life. Love you, buddies! Shown here: Meg Carswell Reilley (an exquisitely gifted photographer), Alisa Carswell Reilley (an incredibly talent graphic designer), @fernworks (a jewelry designer of abundant creativity), and @killaspro (a coffee connoisseur and all around funny guy).

And the Winner of “Making It” Is…

Ashley, over at Life of a Little Woman, lucky number #175, according to my random number generator widget. I’ll be in touch soon for your mailing info.

Thank you so very much to all who participated. I LOVE giving things away! Those of you who know me personally can attest to this. From clothing to housewares, scratch-cooked meals to generous hugs, I love sharing what I’ve got.

    So excited! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  • Even though I didn't win the book, I did win by finally making my own eyeglass cleaner!

    I had been paying $3.50 for an 8oz bottle of cleaner. I made my own cleaner using a 16oz bottle rubbing alcohol ($1) and 16oz water (free) with a few drops of dish soap (basically free).

    I got 32oz of homemade eyeglass cleaner for $1. I would have paid$14 for that much at the store!!! And, my homemade cleaner seems to work better!

    Thanks to Ashley English for the motivation to finally get this “small measure”-type project done. :)

  • Thanks, Ashley!

    I also just got your Canning & Preserving book.

    I am planting my first vegetable garden this year and I am very much looking forward to using the book to help me can some of my bounty. :)
