For sure joeys, but usually the thickness of Greek style yogurt is due to the liquid being drained off, so for Greek yogurt specifically, thickeners are kind of a cop-out to me.

Aren't these the guys that add thickeners to their yogurt though?

My family used to have a Dutch Baby every year for Christmas breakfast, with fruit, sausages, maple syrup and whipped cream. I think you could probably toss some breakfast sausages on the grill, and grilled peaches are my new favorite! You may have planned my Sunday breakfast!

And for some reason I have never been bothered by the name. I presume it's something about Dutch babies being so cute you could eat them up, as opposed to cannibalism-related.

Sporadicus, painting is not cheap if you have to repaint when you leave vs. furniture and accessories that you get to take with you when moving out. Light fixtures can also be swapped out and the old one can be put back up when you leave. Nothing here is permanent, expensive fixes.

And the plant hate surprises me. I don't love the placement or plant choice in this case, but in general, a tall tree helps most spaces (if it gets enough light).

I just made a bunch of jam, do you think this would work with jam instead of the lemon curd? I am dying to make that shortbread!

Fish and chips in Yorkshire. Don't get me wrong, they were delicious! But my digestive system realized before I did that fish and chips in Yorkshire are cooked (at least in this case) in beef tallow. Cut to the next day and a lovely outing totally ruined by explosive diarrhea. Sorry to say it.

But now any time somebody has an upset stomach, the question "Are you going to pull a Bolton Abbey?" is the first one we ask.

The fact that there is a local pickle packing plant anywhere outside a Dr. Seuss book makes me very happy. Just try and say it five times fast!

It was an investment at the time, but I got a Hungarian felted star from the Sandor collection and it makes me smile every year when I put it up.

Holy moly, I can't even finish the house tour until I read the whole blog! These pictures are amazing, and the blog ones are even more inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing your home. I am drooling over the bathroom, does the color in there play well with all the teal? Or does it not matter since they are separate?

I just moved into my grandmother's house this year. She used to have Easter here every year in her epic garden. This year I did a buttload of work in that garden and all the nieces and nephews came over and ran amok with sugar and plastic rabbits. Next year will be even more elaborate. It could only be better if she was still here.

Any sources for the art? I would love the details on the pair of prints above the desk and the bird above the stairs... great use of space!

Holy cannoli! I have never seen my canisters anywhere else, EVER! I can see coffee, tea and sugar up there, I have a flour one as well (same size as the sugar). Where is this picture from?! I must know! ;)

I am trying to get out of the habit of eating at my desk, I used to eat there all the time. Now I will not eat anything that needs a plate there (drinks and small snacks are ok). So breakfast is at the table like a big girl. We'll see how long I hold out.

I have the most basic version of the first Bodum one - glass and recycled plastic, no Bakelite (sigh). It works great, and I am willing to bet that most of the other lower-end Bodum ones work just as well. Unless you're into spending that much on a coffee press, of course.

There are lupines that grow all over, MontgomerySt, maybe you can find some that work in your area! I just moved from Nevada where there are tiny pale blue ones to California where there are crazy yellow shrub lupines on the coast. You don't have to go without!
