Front Garden Beds Before and After - An Oregon Cottage

Well, looking at some of the posts linked up to last week’s Tuesday Garden Party, it seems like there’s a lot of seed starting going on as well as early spring blooms. I hope those of you in the northeast who are still getting some of the white stuff get a break soon and can […]


Eclectic Spring Mantel & Updates

Eclectic 2014 Spring Mantel - An Oregon Cottage

I’m definitely doing some spring decorating this year – I’m ready to wave goodbye to the cold & gray weather and welcome the spring blooms and sunshine, aren’t you? So I shopped the house, crafted a sweet banner, got out a few Easter-themed decorations, added greenery and flowers, and – voila! An Eclectic Spring Mantel. […]


Cranberry, Walnut & Feta Broccoli Slaw

Cranberry Walnut-Feta Broccoli Slaw - An Oregon Cottage

I’m excited to share with you one of our family’s new favorite salads, Cranberry, Walnut and Feta Broccoli Slaw. This salad was created on the fly after finding a clearance sale package of the shredded broccoli stem-carrot mixture that’s sold as broccoli slaw (a brilliant way to use up broccoli stems, I think). You know […]

Garden Chores by Month-March - An Oregon Cottage

March is probably one of the most exciting months of the gardening season for us in the north (where the last frost is usually sometime in April) – when everything starts waking up, there are some sunny days and the dreams of a perfect garden are still fresh and within the realm of possibility. Hey […]


Add Old-House Character with Easy DIY Door Trim

Add Character to a Doorframe with Molding - An Oregon Cottage

One of the simplest ways to add old-house character to a newer house is to add moldings to interior windows and doors that are only painted sheetrock. Well, duh – I’m certainly not giving you any new information there, am I? Why write this, then? To give you the permission freedom to go ahead with […]


Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups - An Oregon Cottage

I first made these delicious chocolate chip cookie cups years ago for a dinner and our guests were completely impressed with the “ice cream bowl made from a chocolate chip cookie!” Little did they know it took about 10 minutes to prepare – and that I baked them way in advance which made the dessert […]


An Oregon Cottage at BetterRecipes.com

Slow Cooker Chicken with Artichokes Dried Tomatoes and Olives - An Oregon Cottage

So, I did something spur-of-the-moment over the weekend that I’ve never done before… I entered a recipe contest. Where readers can vote for their favorite. Eeek! What was I thinking? Anything remotely resembling a popularity contest I usually run screaming from because I don’t like failing (though who does?) and it always just seems weird […]
