This month Haley Homemaker shows you how to make Zuppa Toscana Soup.
I don’t know about you, but I love listening to other peoples’ holiday traditions. Many people think that their traditions might not be very special or unique, but I’ve found that every family has a different twist on the holidays. This year, in addition to my own family’s traditions, I reached out to gather 50 traditions around Southwest Michigan. The holidays might look different for a lot of people this year, but our memories can never be taken from us.
Who else is over these hot summer days? These wonton cups would make a nice lunch or appetizer before dinner. Maybe if you make enough of them you can even have them for dinner! They’re so light and not too filling. Perfect summer food for sitting on your porch or under the gazebo.
“I love this jalapeño poppers recipe for a few different reasons—one, they’re very easy to make (not a lot of ingredients); two, they’re great for entertaining and finally, my favorite part, you can prep and assemble them ahead of time and pop them in the oven whenever you want!”
This week I’m coming at you with my first cleaning hack. If you are anything like me then I know that you have some rubber spatulas and spoons that have been hanging out in your kitchen tool drawer for years that are probably looking a little dingy and stained. I found lots of different solutions online to solve this but the three I chose are made out of things that you probably have in your house right now.
If you’re looking for something to bring to a friends and family gathering next weekend—this might be the recipe for you! This cocktail is delicious and easy to throw together. Who wouldn’t be excited about summer when they see all the fresh berries in this cocktail?
“This week we’re at the lake and this is one of my favorite recipes to make while we’re here. These shrimp tacos are always a hit with my family and friends. I hope you enjoy them too!”
“As I stated last week, I have been very intentional about diversifying my Instagram feed over the last two weeks. It can be difficult to find diversity in the foodie, food blogger, and homemaker circles on social media, but that’s what we have hashtags for! This week, I would like to share some of my favorite Instagram accounts that are run by Black women.”
“I think it is important to support black owned business, especially at a time like this where people are being divided more and more. Supporting black-owned businesses is not reparations, and it is not enough, but it is a small way that an individual can empower less privileged communities and help lift them up from the many systemic ways that they are oppressed.”
“I feel like zucchini is one of those things that everybody ends up having way too much of by the end of the summer, especially if you have a garden at home. If you’re growing zucchini this year, you will want to hold on to this recipe for later. You’re welcome.” — Haley Hogoboom, “Haley Homemaker: Zucchini Brownies”
Summer holidays are when we start breaking out those summer pasta salads, and I’m here for that. This simple pasta salad will be a great companion to all the yummy food you will soon be throwing on the grill.
“This recipe will be great for your next Netflix binge. These are an old favorite for us; a major upgrade to the frozen pizza roll. It also has garlic-butter, which—if we’re being honest—is the key to any good snack. This recipe will make approximately 24 puffs.”
Hi there, I’m Haley Hogoboom and I’m going to be your weekly read on The Watershed Voice on the art of making your home or as some might call it, homemaking.
