Whether it’s French bread, soft sourdough sandwich bread, ice cream sandwiches, or mashed potato casserole, you can make it. I’ll show you how, step-by-step.

Feathering My Nest

Having a home where people gather to share a wonderful meal is important to me. Food and people just seem to go hand-in-hand.

People often ask me how I came up with the name “The Feathered Nester.” It’s a twist on the term “empty nester.” Even though our girls are grown and raising children of their own, I’ve never stopped feathering my nest.

Whether you live alone or with a full house, your home is your castle. Make it a reflection of everything you love through nesting.

Nesting is about creating a warm and inviting environment.
