Rhubarb Cherry Honey Lemonade: Luscious. LOVE!

A few days ago, a friend of mine gave me a generous bundle of her fresh garden rhubarb. I was thinking about all kinds of ways to use it up instead of in pie, muffin or squares but none of those appealed to me. Don’t get me wrong, any of those choices would have been […]

I don’t know about you but I’ve had it with dust and grit inside my house. While I am also thinking of my actual bricks and mortar house, I’m actually referring to the inside of my body. The winter has piled up the grime.  Time to kick the garbage to the curb. There are a lot […]

Coconut Peanut Butter Banana PANCAKES

I was thinking back to a period of time when my usual breakfast was toast spread with peanut butter topped with sliced bananas. Easy, quick, and delicious.

Kajmak Fresh Tomato Soup

Why this soup? I do like tomatoes and a really good creamy soup using them, but truthfully I had an excess amount of tomatoes that were starting to age. There was no way those babies were going to be wasted! I also had some kajmak – more of what this is in a moment – […]

Pass the pasta

Happy world pasta day! It appears that the first reference to pasta was back in the 12th century in Sicily. Much has changed. A lot has stayed the same! While I do not know what the first shape looked like — now, we have oodles of shapes and tastes to choose from — the basic […]

Wait! #DontGetTiredOfPumpkin

Have you noticed all the posts about pumpkin this, and pumpkin that even before autumn told us it had arrived? Folks get that feeling… for warmth, comfort, and any fruit or vegetable that naturally glorifies the brilliance of fall colors like red, yellow, and orange. Apples, beets, carrots, and squash more likely in the form […]

Hands down, this recipe is one of my favorite autumn breakfast recipes. When it’s cool outside oftentimes I reach for hot or warm temperature foods to provide that bit of comfort and flavor this time of year but…. I have to say that this combo is a delight, cold.
