From disaster to functional


Like a lot of homes built these days, all of the closets (and pantry) in my house have those plastic-coated wire shelving installed. Yuck! I can’t stand that stuff. They’re so annoying. They sag. Things fall through the slits, or don’t sit on the shelf evenly. If something spills, it gets on everything stored below …

Venturing out into the world of chickens

My husband eats a lot of eggs.  A lot of eggs.  So it wasn’t a shock when he proposed getting some chickens when we moved to the mountains.  After some time we pretty much decided against it, but when we went to a funeral last month and was given a small chicken coop…well, it was …

Creamy White Chili

It is cold and windy here today. We’re actually under a wind advisory until tomorrow and it’s bringing the temperature down significantly.

Cowboy Candy

What is this marvel they call “cowboy candy”?   In short, cowboy candy is simply candied jalapeños. Sliced jalapeño rings in a sweet vinegar syrup…with or without the fire components (the seeds and membrane).  Try this recipe if you dare! It’s quite versatile too.  You can eat it as a relish on meats or eggs, …

I drug out the pressure canner yesterday

Onion Soup

I’m still trying to get us settled in to the new house.  I wanted to wait to do any canning or soaping until we were settled.  Well, it didn’t quite work out that way.  I had the urge to do some canning and I couldn’t resist.  And so I gave in and did a little …

Puttin’ Up With Suzy is now online!

Jelly & Jam

Puttin’ Up With Suzy was born out of my love of canning.  As a child, I remember helping my grandmother with her canning.  Shucking corn, snapping beans, picking berries…  I do not remember when I actually started canning myself, but I’d venture to guess it was sometime in my teenage years. Puttin’ Up With Suzy …
