  • Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

    This fudge recipe uses marshmallows as an easy cheat in place of more elaborate candy-making.
    Have your lined baking pan ready to go before you start and work fast once you remove the saucepan from the heat. As the fudge starts to cool, it can become difficult work with.
    Ingredients
    1/2 cup whole milk
    6 regular-sized marshmallows (NOT mini or jumbo marshmallows, certified gluten-free if needed)
    3/4 cup (150 g) white granulated sugar
    3/4 cup (165 g) packed light brown sugar
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Blooming gifts may need some special care

    Live gifts during the holiday season are welcomed by gardeners … a poinsettia or two, a rosemary topiary, cyclamen, African violets and orchids give us something to fuss over during the winter months. But, sometimes our homes can be a hostile environment for many of the most popular indoor flowering plants.  
    Light levels, low humidity or a missed watering or two can turn a pretty plant ugly in no time.

  • Good tools make great gifts

    Amassing a good set of gardening tools usually takes a while and the holiday season, with various traditions of gift giving, is a perfect time to help gardeners achieve that goal.  
    Good tools don’t come cheap but if you buy right the first time the investment pays off in the life of the tool and the efficiency of the job.  The right tool often means less time spent on tackling the chore.
