My Swedish Moline family members included two furniture makers, Johan Emil and Gunnar, father and son. I know no history of their education, nor do I have any furniture that they might have made, but from census records for the Seattle, Washington area I know that “Emil” was listed as a furniture refinisher, and his son owned Moline Furniture Company.  The photos above are Emil Moline on the top and his son Gunnar below him.

Seeing this Berlin Secretary Cabinet video today made me appreciate their skills even more.  In no way did they probably create anything so wonderful as this secretary cabinet, but who knows, there might be a piece of original Moline furniture work floating around out there.

If you use Vegetable stock this is a great and tasty Vegan / Vegetarian soup. Or you could use chicken stock… This recipe makes 8 servings Ingredients: 2 large sweet potatoes, (about ¾ lb / 450g each) 2 Tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
½ tsp (2 mL) salt
1 small onion, chopped 1 rib celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh rosemary
¼ tsp (1 mL) ground black pepper
4 cups (1 L) vegetable stock (or chicken stock) 2 cups (500 mL) water Method: Pre-heat oven to 450°F (230°C) Peel and roughly chop sweet potatoes; toss with half of the salt and oil. Roast on baking sheet stirring occasionally, until tender, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat Dutch oven with remaining oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion, celery, carrot, garlic, rosemary, pepper and remaining salt until softened. Add roasted sweet potatoes, stock, and water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Purée until smooth.

Martha Stewart Makes Butternut Squash Tartlet

Today is my husband Jim’s 64th birthday and so he went to the store and bought a couple of individual desserts for us tonight. I ran across this video today with Martha Stewart making a butternut squash tartlet. I’ve never made one before but this one looks pretty yummy, don’t you think?

To be honest too, I’m trying out a new WordPress plugin called GrabVideo or GrabPress and this was a tasty way to share a good recipe and try the video plugin.
