When I read this month’s Daring Baker’s challenge, I was kind of excited that it was cake. "Mandy of What The Fruitcake?! came to our rescue last minute to present us with the Battenberg Cake challenge! She highlighted Mary Berry’s techniques and recipes to allow us to create this unique little cake with ease." It’s been awhile since I’ve made a cake and I’ve been feeling the urge a little bit. This cake was the perfect answer as although it’s small in size, it involves a lot of technique. Perfect!

It’s been 10 days since I took the photos of my container garden for Almost a Garden. Every day when I walk out onto our deck I am amazed at what can happen in 24 hours, let alone 10 days. See for yourself:

Back in April, Marisa of Food in Jars posted about making homemade yogurt in mason jars. I was enthralled. For years – Y E A R S – I’ve looked at yogurt making machines. Part of me felt it would be a justifiable expense as I do eat quite a bit of yogurt and the idea of experimenting with different flavors was intriguing. But then I would read further about needing to order and reorder the yogurt cultures, think about the cost of having everything shipped, and the fact that it would be a single-use machine and eventually would talk myself out of it.
