Pin It Tuesday: Canning

I don't know if I'm the only one but, canned food is just beauty to my eyes. It reminds me of my grandma and all the hard work she had to perform to feed her family. Gardening, weeding, picking, cleaning, canning.. Oh My!

Crazy About My Baybah


  1. I was at an old lady's house last night with all sorts of jarred/canned foods. That's so funny! I had my camera, but was afraid to ask if I could take pictures. Although they talked our heads off.
    I see how nice this looks. We are going back,the husband is fixing something for us, maybe I will ask.

  2. I must admit...I've never canned. I so want to!!! I think you've inspired me to give it a try with all these fab links! thanks!

    Lots of yummy love,

  3. I have to agree. Canning has always been one of the symbols of a happy and healthy hearth and home for me. In fact - I plan on learning more about it once I get the whole gardening thing down! :-D

  4. Hi, I just landed here from the Pin it tuesday hop. I've never tried canning so I find your pins very interesting.

  10. Alot of that food in those jars sure do look tempting! I have not had canned food since my mom passed away in 1988! Those are the best tasting green beans, I don't care what anyone says. Grocery store beans don't stand a chance! I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC and Facebook. I would love a follow back on both when you get a free moment. Thanks so very much and have a great weekend.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
