Last night I had set out a bowl of dried garbanzo beans (aka Chickpeas) in water to re-hydrate overnight....this morning I was putting away my rice cooker/veggie steamer (I like to let it air-dry overnight after washing it) and getting ready to do the usual 'boil-on-the-stove' method of… MORE

About Me
I am a Real Estate Agent (visit www.deborahlsykes.com), A Mom to two grown kids, A Wife and I love to collect recipes! I have so many creative outlets at the moment...it is a wonder I have time to work :) I knit all kinds of things, I design, create and sew custom-made Aprons, Totes & Vacation Handbags ~ for further info, please visit http://www.lagitanacrafts.com, I also JUST (Oct/13) purchased a loom and am learning how to weave AND I blog my heart out at www.ournorthernhomestead.com. I used to blog here on AR but felt the need to compile everything into one site, cooking, sewing, crafts, DIY, and funny cr@p that happens to me at our cottage and life in general. So pop on by and say hello!
My favorite things to cook
BBQ Chicken Penne Pasta - my husband ADORES it! Anything with rice or pasta, along with a killer bbq chicken pizza!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Easter Paska bread - my kids pester me every year to make it! It takes all day but well worth it.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out well! ;)
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married many years ago, we got our first microwave and I attempted to cook carrots in a corningware dish with a glass lid...anyway, I inadertantly set the timer for 25 minutes and went out in the backyard, next thing I knew the glass lid of the corningware was a molten mass and the carrots had turned into little charcoal briquettes! My husband has never let me hear the end of that one! :)
