Homemade Holiday Potpourri


Posted By on Dec 18, 2017

Potpourri…there are so many varieties and scents for every season, but there’s nothing like the smell of Christmas during the holiday season!     I posted a picture of my potpourri concoction on my facebook page the other day and had such a nice response that I thought I would make an official blog post about it! A few years ago I discovered how to make homemade potpourri with fresh ingredients.  I love to let it...

The savory flavors of this seasoned salt is a great addition to your spice cabinet!!

A sweet topping bursting with flavor…that’s what you’ll get when you taste this mixed berry compote!   Ahh, berries…I could eat them every day of the year and not get tired of them.  When I was young our family had woods behind our house (my playground).  Walking in the woods you could find wild blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.  I couldn’t wait for berries to be in season so I could take...
