My Love of Vintage Dough Bowls

Friday, August 14, 2015

I'm not sure about you, but I'm willing to admit that I have had an obsession with antique vintage dough bowls for the past few years. And by obsession, I mean dragging my fiance to countless flea markets & antique shops on the weekends to hunt down the perfect bowl.

I would make it a point to ask the sellers in advance if they had any vintage dough bowls upon entering their stores, and most just looked at me like I had three heads.
C'mon people, there's a vintage bowl movement out there and everyone is trying to get their hot little hands on one! If I did find an authentic bowl I liked, it was either the wrong size, it was cracked right down the middle, or the price exceeded the amount I would get if I sold a kidney (and I like my kidneys!)

~Homemade Sweet Tea~

I might not be from the South, but I know an awesome sweet tea recipe when I taste it!
Who doesn't like sweet tea? Most recipes I have found to either be "too sweet" or the opposite with me reaching for the sugar container.
