Asparagus and Ham Egg Cups with Easy Hollandaise Sauce

Asparagus and Ham Egg Cups - An Oregon Cottage

When asparagus is producing in our garden, I’m always looking for interesting ways to use it. When you grow asparagus, it’s definitely a feast-or-famine type of thing: you’re either waiting for it to produce, dealing with heaps of asparagus or, after six weeks of eating asparagus non-stop, you’re ready for it to leaf out and […]

Potager deck garden via Olla-Podrida

With most of our gardens in full swing (I love June, don’t you?) it’s been so inspiring to see what your gardens look like – what you’re growing, what new things you’re trying and always my favorite – how your gardens are designed. They just get the wheels of my brain spinning (ha, as if […]


June Garden Chores

June – ah, the garden is in full swing with so many flowers blooming it’s hard to pick a favorite! Hmmmm, is cutting bouquets of flowers and creating arrangements for the house considered a chore?

Handful of Strawberries - An Oregon Cottage

Welcome to another Tuesday Garden Party where we get to share over a virtual garden fence! Oh, and it’s a nice time in the garden, isn’t it? Seeds sprouting, plants growing, and first garden gifts like lettuce, peas, rhubarb and strawberries.  I’m actually surprised I’m getting strawberries since my beds were ravaged by moles last […]

DIY Tufted French Mattress Cushion and Salvaged Bench - An Oregon Cottage

I’m SO excited to finally be able to share this tufted French mattress cushion I made with you, because it’s been 2 years in the making. Yes, really. It was in the plan back when we completed our French-style bench out of a pair of broken chairs (because that was inspired by this Ballard Designs bench […]


Rhubarb-Honey Crumb Bars

Whole Grain Rhubarb-Honey Crumb Bars - An Oregon Cottage

Here’s a rhubarb recipe that I can’t believe I haven’t shared before now – it’s one of my favorite ways to use rhubarb. Um…shoot, now that I think about it, I think I’ve been saying that for Spicy Rhubarb Chutney, Glazed Orange Rhubarb Muffins, and Honey-Lemon Rhubarb Butter, haven’t I? Alright, I’ll just go on […]


Tuesday Garden Party 5.27.14: Herb Garden

Herb Garden Plan - An Oregon Cottage

Hello, friends! I recently began the replant of our back door herb garden that was pretty much decimated by our -10 degree weather we had this last winter. I actually was pretty surprised at this, since it’s a southern-facing garden up against the house. But the only things that survived without any damage were the chives […]
