Denise's destructive yard work in process this week
Denise’s destructive yard work in process this week

Greetings, readers. This one’s going to be short and sweet from me (Mary Kate) or short as your average English major can make it. My computer is having a major case of cranky slowness.

First up? Cara Reed of Fork and Beans has a new cookbook. As you might know, I’m a huge fan (I just pulled the White Out cake out of the oven from the first book), and this one talks more about the chemistry, substitutions, and technical side of gluten-free vegan baking. I’m super excited.

Secondly, it is now very officially summer. Summer means grilling, right? The Kitchn has us all covered. For me, the first thing I consider grilling is burgers — that’s my dad’s fault — but I’m always open to how to make them even better. But I also love vegetables, and there are lots of ways to do them on the grill.

Last week I posted a link to a company making butternut squash flour, but it’s pretty pricey, so I looked to see if anyone else had DIY’ed their own butternut squash flour. They have. Mary Kate and I will have more things to do with the dehydrators, as I foresee other types of flour experiments. 

Because bug repellent can be a bit hard for me, and I have a lot of mason jars, and the mosquitoes are making an appearance at our place, I think I’d like to make these DIY Mason Jar Citronella Candle Oil Lamps.

Have a great weekend everyone!
