Honey Harvesting Equipment and How-to!

Today’s Farm Tip Friday is all about harvesting honey. If you follow along on Instagram, you know that we harvested honey from our beehive last weekend! My dad has been keeping bees for quite a few years now and has been helping me navigate successfully through our first year of keeping bees on our own. He was even nice enough to haul all of his honey harvesting equipment PLUS supers of his own he needed harvest all the way from his place to ours – what a guy! Because harvesting honey is a sticky mess, I opted to not bring my nice camera into the garage where we were harvesting, so you’ll have to suffer through bad lighted iPhone pictures :). But this post should be really helpful for outlining the honey harvesting equipment you’ll need and how to do it if you ever have bees!

Food Confessional: The Drive-Thru Might Know My Name

My love for cooking and baking should be obvious if you’ve read even one post on my blog. But I always like to keep it real, so today’s post is going to be bit of a confessional.

I’m bad at finding babysitters}, but this month has been so much more than that and I think I’ll just avoid looking back on it instead of owning it. Ha! But I promise there have been good reasons…

The Best Zucchini Muffin Recipe

I am not kidding when I say this is the best zucchini muffin recipe. I’ve been working on this one for a few weeks now, and I really think you’ll love it. My biggest complaint with most zucchini muffin {or bread} recipes is that they turn out heavy and greasy. I wanted to create a zucchini muffin recipe that was lighter and fluffier, not so dense and thick. This recipe totally fits the bill, these turn out light but filling every single time.

Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Shells

I discovered the joy of stuffed shells shortly after Andy and I were married, it’s all the goodness of lasagna but a little quicker and easier to put together! I have tweaked this recipe quite a bit since then and have stuck with this version for quite a while now, I absolutely love it! My ricotta and spinach stuffed shells have a unique flavor profile that sets them apart from other recipes, and it’s another one of my favorite meals to freeze.
