I sure love Indian food, and lately I have been experimenting with more and more recipes. I am pretty sure I would be in heaven if I could visit India and enjoy a home-cooked meal (or ten). I have an Indian friend at work who describes some really amazing foods that she makes and her mother makes and I think I drool every time!
Well, I am (…read more and get the recipe)

We’ve been backpacking and camping a lot lately. It is amazing how much better food can taste when you are camping, or after a long hard days worth of backpacking. I always look forward to breakfast while camping, and dinner while backpacking but my favorite meal is dessert! What else do you have while camping for dessert but S’mores!
When I was younger my family and I went (…read more and get the recipe)

We just got back from vacation and our garden is teeming with greens. I love greens. Last year I planted kale and collards and I became hooked! What was really amazing about them was that they lasted from early summer until the next spring, when I pulled them up. I couldn’t believe that they survived the snow. Granted it wasn’t that much snow and our climate is very mild, but still!
This year I (…read more and get the recipe)

This soup turned out SO delicious! Rachel was impressed, I was impressed, what more is there to say? Are you sick? Someone you know? Do you have a craving for a week’s worth of meals done in one batch? Do you have a big gathering of family? You have come to the right place then! If you (…read more and get the recipe)

I was making chicken noodle soup the other today and needed some broth, so I went back and looked through my postings to find a recipe. I wasn’t really happy with it so I updated it just a little and am re-posting it here. I hope you enjoy it!
As you may have noticed I don’t use salt that much. I like to use unsalted butter, and I rarely put salt in anything I bake. I found that it is not necessary to add salt in order to have a delicious flavor. When I went on a salt-free kick way back when, I realized that chicken bouillon and store-bought chicken broths have a LOT of sodium (along with pretty much every thing else you buy at the grocery store). So I decided (…read more and get the recipe)

I love Clif Bars; so does Rachel. I also love my grandma’s homemade granola bars, which I spoke of when I wrote a review of the “True Delights” granola bars. Today I decided that I needed to try and make my own energy bar that is low in sugar, delicious and good for you! I thought (…read more and get the recipe)

Way back when, in November, I still had tomatoes coming out my ears. Believe it or not, but I did. Half of them were not turning red though so I had to figure out something to do with them. I thought about making some green tomato salsa or fried green tomatoes and I decided that the fried tomatoes would (…read more and get the recipe)

The other day I was pleasantly surprised to receive some samples in my mailbox from Foodbuzz and their partnership with Quaker. Foodbuzz has partnered with a bunch of food bloggers, like me, and occasionally send samples as long as we promise to write a review. They don’t control what I write, as long as (…read more and get the recipe)

This guacamole is famous from wall-to-wall — in my house! 😉 Rachel used to hate avocados (and guacamole) but ever since I started making her my “Famous” guacamole she has (…read more and get the recipe)
