Fresh Ricotta Cheese, Homemade Crackers and a couple stories from the last 7 months

Wow has it been a long time since I have written a blog post.  My life has been all over the place with changes and I feel like I am just finally getting a breather since May.  This summer I had some good outdoor adventures including going on the annual Timothy lake trip with my family and my mom and I hiked the entire circumference of the lake, 13 miles.  Below is a picture of us at the end looking ever so proud.  My mother, aunt, and I had another successful pickle fest this summer and canned about 50 lbs. of pickles.  I went peach picking, ate at a lot of awesome new restaurants, grew a fair amount of tomatoes that I processed and made into sauce, and made Giardiniera for the first time.  I had another amazing time in New Orleans and finally got to eat some real po-boys, can't wait to go back in March!  Oh and I made silly video of the mentioned ricotta cheese and crackers.  I will definitely have a few more of these posts in order to catch up before I begin my real cooking posts again.  Hope you all had a fabulous summer and fall!
