The other day, I was wishing that life was like a fairy tale where there was constant magic. All the while my cat Grimus, who always knows when I’m sad, was sitting on my lap. And I almost missed it. *** The other day, I went outside, and found this radish had sprouted in the […]

First of all, thank you to the positive responses I received regarding my last blog entry. Now that I’m writing again on here, I’ve committed myself to writing a post on food every Sunday. I’m also going to publish a post on Thursdays about another topic, such as gardening or writing. I appreciate your reading and will do […]

I haven’t written for quite some time. However, over the past few weeks, I began to feel the blog post ideas percolating again, and I knew it was time to start writing once more. It was this post, however, that stopped me. The “why I haven’t been writing” explanation. I thought about taking the easy […]

In the past, I published a Butternut Squash Gnocchi recipe. This fall, I modified it by using Field Roast Apple Sage sausage in place of the cannellini beans. Field Roast is my favorite vegan “meat.” It’s soy-free, and made of grains and other all-natural ingredients. The apple sage sausage is truly perfect in this recipe. […]

As I wrote about in my last post, summer tomatoes taste so delicious to me that they don’t need a lot of accompaniment. The fact that basil exists, and is fresh in my garden at the same time as tomatoes are, I think, one of life’s miracles. Putting fresh basil and tomatoes together can make anyone appear […]

Home grown tomatoes are one of my favorite things in the world. It’s their smell that I like the best. They smell like the earth and the sunshine at the same time. I remember picking tomatoes from my backyard one summer when I was very young – maybe six years old. Then, like now, I […]

My basil plants are flourishing in the warm summer sun, so it’s time to make a lot of Italian food. I love pesto, and find it’s the perfect summer pasta sauce, since it goes so nicely with seasonal vegetables. However, I also like to include a big source of protein, such as legumes, with my […]

If you usually don’t trust yourself to cook without a recipe, the summer is the time to begin. With fresh herbs, and abundant local fruits and vegetables, it’s really hard to go wrong. My go-to summer combination is fresh vegetables, fresh herbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. If you have these items, […]

This is one my favorite recipes I’ve come up with. I wrote it down a year or two ago on a stray piece of paper. When I looked back this weekend, I saw that my notes say: 3/4 cups 1 cup chocolate chips. That does sound like a decision I’d make! These muffins are so […]

I try not to buy a lot of pre-made foods, but two items are the exception: pasta sauce and curry sauce. Although I love the homemade versions of both, keeping the store-bought versions on hand make it more likely that I will actually cook something for dinner, rather than calling the local Thai restaurant. I’ve […]
