Printable: 2012 Calendar

The new year will be here in a matter of hours! If you haven't had a chance to pick-up a 2012 calendar, we have a delightful (and free!) version for you to download and enjoy all year long.

Simply click here to download the PDF and cut each page in half for a final page size of 5.5" wide by 8.5" tall. The "x" on each page marks where you should punch a hole. Print, hang, and welcome 2012! Of course, if you'd like us to do the work for you, we have pre-printed calendars on sale here.


A Renegade Weekend

Wow, what a weekend! We had a great time at the Renegade Craft Fair at the San Francisco Concourse. Since it was our first experience as a vendor at a craft fair, we were not sure what to expect. But what we did know is that we would meet great people and learn a lot - and we did! Here are a couple shots of our booth. Thank you to all of you who stopped by and we hope to see you again at another event soon!


Holiday Breakfast

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal, and having guests for breakfast is so fun. But it can be a little tricky getting the timing of all the elements down, so I often resort to a strata or breakfast casserole. It’s also the perfect thing for overnight guests you may be having over the holidays.
Here’s a recipe I made up last Friday night using what I had in the house. It turned out delicious!

Bacon & Spinach Strata
8 slices of bread, cubed (I used leftover dinner rolls)
10 eggs
2 C milk
1 C grated cheddar
1/2 lb bacon
a bag of spinach, lightly saut├ęd
Fry and crumble the bacon. 
Grease a 9x13” pan (I used the bacon grease) 
Line the bottom with the cubed bread and top with the bacon, spinach and cheese 
Whisk the milk and eggs, season with salt and pepper, and pour over the bread mixture.
Chill overnight or at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350°. Bake casserole until puffed and center is set, about 50 minutes. Serve with a little fruit on the side. Enjoy!
