My friend Kimberlee is a great cook and she too is always on the hunt for cool finds. This salad dressing bowl from potter Rachael Pots is her find. But I think it’s amazing! I love that it is handmade and a purchase on the potter’s website supports her craft.
The butter crock, also known as a butter bell or butter keeper, dates back to 19th century France. It is a two-piece contraption that keeps butter fresh on the counter for up to 30 days. The water should be as close to or touching the butter as possible. This device keeps butter smooth and spreadable for whenever you need it. While you can in theory keep it out all the time. I always put mine in the fridge overnight and take out in the morning when I make coffee.
Consider more road trips or regional getaways to really get to know your country and seasons. Door County, Wisconsin sits on the finger of the state of Wisconsin. Loaded with Scandinavian character, night skies so dark you can see the Big Dipper with ease, crystal blue Lake Michigan water and endless outdoor trails and parks, plan a visit.
