2crochethooks gift guide

Hi all! Kristina here. I know I missed a few weeks on the gift guide, sorry about that. We took a break for summer. Today I’m sharing a gift I actually got for myself. 


Awhile back I watched an episode of Good Eats (great show!) and he was talking about espresso. I learned a ton from that episode and actually got a little metal pitcher to make cappuccino and lattes based on that episode.

Tea for Two Sarah Whelan

hey everyone! Glad you could stop by for a cuppa at our Tea for Two! Please welcome our special guest – Sarah Whelan from Team Waterwheel! Please share all about yourself and your love of yarn Sarah! Tea for Two and You 2crochethooks


My name is Sarah and I Love crochet. That’s love with a capital L. I always felt like a creative person, but until crochet, I just hadn’t found my niche. Pictures I drew never came out the way I imagined them in my head, instruments refused to co-operate with my attempts to play them, knitting just resulted in really, really long scarves. Crochet though, crochet just clicked.

Pressure Canning Chicken Broth

July 8, 2016By 0 Comments

Hey all 🙂 Me again! The other day hubby wanted to grill some chicken thighs – he wants the skin on but the bones out. I saved the bones, extra skin and fat and made some chicken broth to pressure can for later.  Now I have it for whenever I need it, no waste! I used quart jars but thought later I should have done a couple pints too for when I just need a splash or two for some added flavor.
