I don’t know if it was the visits to all the farms or what, but A and I were inspired to try our hand at making our own hand churned kitchen-aid churned butter. Which is fitting because I have yet to announce it here, but I recently adopted a little munchkin named BUTTAH. Why BUTTAH you ask, and not butter? Well, her name is inspired by one of my favorite podcasts by a comedian called Bill Burr, when he does a commercial for Dollar Shave Club.

She’s the quirkiest, mischievous little malti-poo out there. I wasn’t planning on adopting a dog, but when the opportunity came up and I saw her little adorable face, I knew I was in love. Look at that face! She’s so photogenic. So much so that my camera roll is filled with pictures of her that are all the same but ever so slightly different. BUT THEY ARE DIFFERENT. (Is this what parents feel like?)

This post is a dedication to her, the newest apple of my eye. (Sorry A!) haha.


I actually got the technique from this video, and we added our own garlicky twist. Here’s what we ended up using:

  • 1 16oz container fresh cream
  • 1.5 heads of garlic
  • salt to taste
  • ice water



First, prepare the garlic by drizzling it with olive oil, and lightly salt and pepper. Wrap it in foil and bake it at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, make the butter. PS, it says it only takes ten minutes…. but it took us about 45 minutes. When the garlic is room temperature, mix it into the finished butter. Add salt to the butter to taste.
