We are lucky enough to have a Dutch Oven expert in our store. From the first time we tried his Baked Beans, we knew we needed to trust this man and his dutch oven cooking.

We speed cleaned the @orsongygi fridge. And we finished off an entire jar of pickles in the process.
Cleaning out your entire fridge is a daunting task. There’s no way around it. But we followed FIVE streamlined steps that helped us focus and get things done as quickly as possible.
Our goal was to complete the task in 20 mins. It took closer to 30… but we still feel so good about it!! It’s shiny and fresh and pretty.
My freezer is constantly in a state of “Slam the Door and Run!” It’s so over packed with delicious food I’m certain I’ll eat later, that to add one more thing requires taking at least one thing out. Please tell me someone can relate?
The freezer often doesn’t make it on my regular “to-clean” list. Which means mysterious packages, oozing goo and debris can hide out in the darkest corners of this cold space for a long time without going noticed.
We want to help you get your freezer freshened and help you close that door without any special ninja skills.
The oven is on our minds and in our hearts today as we tackle Spring Cleaning in our kitchens. We love celebrating the underdogs of the kitchen. The mighty workhorses that make our lives much easier, but sometimes these trusty appliances go under appreciated and unnoticed. Especially when it comes to keeping them clean.
If you’re like me, it’s easy to spill in the oven, make a big mess and horrible smell, and close the door and forget all about it until the next time I turn on the oven and fill the house with smoke. I love to procrastinate cleaning my oven, mostly just because it feels hard. But we’ve got some tricks to help get your oven sparkling clean. And without a lot of hassle, so you might even do it more than once a year.
Heather recently visited Brooke Walker at Studio5 KSL during COLOR WEEK. They’ve been celebrating the new book Craft the Rainbow, from The House that Lars Built. It’s a beautiful declaration of color! Brooke has been showcasing a different color each day. We were lucky to visit on YELLOW day!!! Sunshine!!!!
The crew at Studio5 assigned Heather the task of sharing a YELLOW food. She was inspired by Sweet Peas and Saffron’s tangy, lemon meringue bites! Hand-held nests of sweet and crunchy meringue, filled with tart and tangy lemon curd! They are beautiful and delicious and perfect for all your sunshiney soirees this spring!
