Welcome to the Casner Family Blog

some good things.

Another one from “Baked”. My Dad-In-Law turned 60 last week. We surprised him with a party. I didn’t feel well that day, but I lasted long enough to bake the Milk Chocolate Malt Ball Cake. I tried it the next day and as far as cakes go, very pleased...

October…

Pumpkin pie for breakfast. My favorite!   Sneaking in some time during piano lessons to work on my February Lady Sweater… Yarn is thyme from KnitPicks.

Autumn splendor.

My favorite season of the year is Autumn. Time for gingerbread, cappuccino and making woolens… and today is perfect – overcast, a bit of a chill in the air, but only cool enough to need a sweater…Today, I really need to be putting up more tomatoes,...

Fresh bread.

 I think this is the prettiest loaf of bread I’ve made –  and I’ve made a lot of bread. I wouldn’t cut a slice until Matheau had a chance to see it.  Who needs Panera? ;) 

Sweet, sweet autumn…

   Saturday after everyone left, Matheau and Hannah headed out to pick the rest of the sweet potatoes. Can you see the sweet potato nearest my foot? It is about the size of a football-ginormous!!
