The NEW Pancakes (Protein Pancakes)

It isn’t that buttermilk pancakes from Smitty’s or Dennys or any of those other breakfast places don’t have a certain appeal going down. It’s that an hour later the only other appeal we have is to be face up or face down on the closest couch with a buttermilk brick in our gut. Stack of […]

The New Walnut

I suppose there isn’t a wrong way to eat a walnut. What. You chew and swallow. But there is a better way. For years we were satisfied to buy the Costco-sized bag of walnuts and chomp our way through them, one mealy bite at a time. Which was fine. Then. We conquered lots of bags […]

Cocoa Bites

Maybe dates by themselves aren’t your thing. Or almonds. Or shredded coconut. Or maybe they are. I just know that blending these three items with unsweetened cocoa powder and a little water creates something my kids plead for with batted eyelashes. The February 2013 issue of the Family Fun magazine calls them Cocoa Bites. Which […]

I can tell you what’s better than two hands on my face in the morning asking what’s for breakfast. It’s being able to tell those two hands that breakfast is already on the counter. Yep.

Why We Juice

A while back Lisa of 100 Days of Real Food did a brave thing and posted about juicing. Specifically, why she doesn’t juice. Or rather how her family borrowed a friend’s juicer for a week and gave juicing a trial run. Only to conclude that juicing is too expensive, takes too much time and has […]

Simple. Homemade Dill Pickles

I haven’t been in tune with pickle season so much in the past. Which is probably how I ended up at Duris Cucumber Farm twice this summer before they even had a cucumber to sell. But I have been in tune to the pickles in the store. Which–if you can believe it, all contain Yellow […]

Strawberry-Chia Seed Freezer Jam

Chia seeds. Almost a household name now. Or not. But four months ago, while passing Christopher McDougall’s book, Born to Run, back and forth across a six hour flight, Husband and I first read “chia seeds” and puzzled over what one might even look like. We shrugged. But then by the end of the book Husband was moved […]

THE Salad Dressing

We eat a bit of salad. Which probably isn’t saying anything. Except that it isn’t the lettuce we can’t get enough of, as it is the dressing we douse it with. It’s like the going to the beach in Washington. A win. But then there’s going to the beach in say, Hawaii. And suddenly…the beach […]

Disclaimer right here: Soap making isn’t for everyone. And. We ain’t no experts. But. There is something to the finished product. Something to the lather of a bar of soap we made ourselves, a bar that doesn’t decorate us in red bumps or stretch our skin tight, like a blown up balloon. A bar that […]

Molasses Cookies

For years. Decades now…whenever my mom catches whiff that my brother is coming home, she becomes a blur in the kitchen, determined to have spaghetti ready to plate up and a pan of cinnamon rolls already glazed before his foot passes the front door. Always spaghetti. And always cinnamon rolls. As if my brother would […]
