Classic Flan Recipe

Flan was originally an Italian dish, well Roman. The name flan comes from the French word flaon, which comes from the Latin flado – flat cake. The Romans made flan with honey, the Spanish made it more custardy and sweetened it with sugar – which is the traditional flan recipe we think of today with a caramelized sauce. The classic flan recipe has been updated with “modern” conveniences – such as sweetened condensed milk.

Here is an interesting story about how flan started out as a spicy dish in Roman times, became a sweet dish too, and then eventually evolved into the classic dessert dish that we Americans think of as flan, over the centuries. This classic custard recipe is slightly updated to make it easier to cook.

Classic Flan Recipe Notes:

• The flan can be made up to 2 days in advance.

• Instead of single serve ramekins and custard cups, you can make it in a 9-inch cake pan or even a 10 cup Bundt pan.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign

I wanted to explore the farmhouse décor trend and asked my niece if she had any outdoor farmhouse style decorating ideas. I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including this terrific little house number sign. Only problem? Those are not my house numbers; they are hers. {insert side-eye} Oh well, c’est la vie. I can easily make one for myself, I just need the plaque size perfect for my home.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign Notes:

• Tea stain: you can use any black tea to form this tea stain. Lipton was used as it gives a reddish-hue. If you do not want a reddish-hue, avoid Lipton tea.

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• Your plaque may be made of inferior grade wood. While that is nice for a farmhouse project – adding imperfections – it may require a second coat of tea staining, varnishing, etc. Wait at least 12 hours before applying a second coat. It can take that long for the tea and the vinegar solutions to develop and darken.

• Bleeding may also occur when inferior wood is used. If it bothers you a lot, try and hide any bleeding using the numbers or welcome sign. Remember that higher quality wood is less likely to bleed.

• Make certain whatever glue you use will dry clear, or use goop.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy Farmhouse House Numbers Sign can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

Adding these seven things straight into the tomato planting hole helps to give your tomatoes a great head start towards a bountiful harvest.


What to put in the hole when planting tomatoes?

That is a fairly common question gardening newbies (and old-timers) ask. Some people call them tomato hole planting recipes! You can use this recipe in the ground or in a container – realizing that the fish heads in the container may not be the best idea (critters can dig them up).

Adding these seven things straight into the tomato planting hole helps to give your tomatoes a great head start towards a bountiful harvest.


Here are the 7 things that you should add to your tomato planting hole to give it a healthy beginning!

Aspirin

Aspirin boosts the plant’s immunity, keeping it away from diseases, thus increasing its yield.

You can drop one crushed Aspirin tablet in the hole, or you can also dissolve it in a spray bottle and spray directly on the tomato plants.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is one of the all-time favorite gardening hacks, even if you’re growing your tomato plants in pots and containers.

To get sweeter fruits, sprinkle baking soda in the hole as well as at the base of the plant. The soil will fully absorb this material and use it to lower the fruits’ acidity levels, resulting in sweeter produce.

Bone Meal

Bone meal is a source of phosphorus and calcium. It aids in maintaining a good root system and production of quality tomatoes. Just add a cup full of bone meal into the hole when planting.

Coffee Grounds

Coffee grounds put nitrogen into your soil and do not have to be composted before you can add them to your tomato hole.

Adding these seven things straight into the tomato planting hole helps to give your tomatoes a great head start towards a bountiful harvest.


Eggshells

Eggshells boost the soil’s calcium content, one of the key components that a plant needs to continue to grow. It helps in preventing blossom end rot, a common tomato malady.

To prepare your eggshells, first, cover the empty shells with water in a pan and boil them for 5 minutes to sanitize them. Then crush them by hand or in a blender, then they are ready for use in the garden.

Before you plant your tomatoes, make sure to scatter some crushed eggshells in the hole and around the garden plot or container. Or give your eggshells a whirl in your mini food processor to make eggshell powder to sprinkle. Ask your friends and family to save their eggshells. Remember, clean eggshells will not smell, and you don’t care if they break while being saved.

Note: if you do end up with bloosom rot this works.

Adding these seven things straight into the tomato planting hole helps to give your tomatoes a great head start towards a bountiful harvest.


Epsom Salt

A lot of tomato plants suffer and die from a magnesium deficiency, especially in the process of bearing fruits. Organic gardeners love to use Epsom salt as the magnesium helps strengthen cell walls and improves plants’ uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur.

Add one to two teaspoons of Epsom salt before you transplant the seedling in the tomato planting hole. Cover the area with a layer of soil and ensure that the roots are not directly touching the salt.

Fish Head

Fish heads are used by farmers and pro gardeners as natural fertilizers for their plants. This “natural waste” releases potassium, nitrogen, phosphorous, and calcium into the soil.

The only issue with using fish heads is that critters tend to dig them up. To prevent this problem, bury the fish head deeply in the ground. You can drop it in whole, or you can also grind up the head and mix it with water and milk to create a supercharged solution.

To recap your tomato hole planting recipe should incliude:

1. Apsirin
2. Baking Soda
3. Bone meal
4. Coffee Grounds
5. Eggshells
6. Epsom Salt
7. Fish Head

Mix with soil or compost and then place your tomato plant into the hole. Bury your tomato plants deep, the hairs you see on the stem will grow into roots once buried, so the deeper you bury them, the better the root system.

By adding these seven things into your tomato planting hole, you are increasing the chances of getting the best tomatoes in terms of size and quality. You can feel good knowing you gave you tomatoes the best head start and you will see them flourish as they grow and you tend them.
