It’s Apple Season!

August 31, 2017

Here in southern California, apple season has just hit full stride. We don’t have any apple trees at our place, so we hauled ourselves off to Julian this past weekend. Ah, Julian. A picturesque town in the mountains, known for Girl Scout camps, Boy Scout camps, church camps — did we mention camping? — and […]

Low-Carb Granola

October 28, 2014

I did a bunch of poking around before settling on a low-carb granola recipe to try, and I have to extend my kudos to Coping With Frugality for the one I ended up starting with. We go through this stuff fast, so I doubled the recipe and tweaked it slightly for our own tastes and […]

Mesquite Sourdough Biscuits

October 28, 2014

Noticing a theme here? Yeah. Mesquite and sourdough seem to be safe companions for Mark, so I’ve started experimenting with them a bit further. I love to bake. … No, that’s not true, that’s an understatement. I adore baking, and since he’s diabetic, I don’t get to do it all that much. Any little recipe […]

Mesquite Sourdough Waffles

September 14, 2014

This particular recipe is safe for Mark — either one or two waffles, made in a standard waffle iron. Whatever it is about mesquite flour and sourdough, they work very well for his particular type of diabetes. Mesquite flour gives these waffles a naturally sweet, almost chocolatey taste without adding any sugar, and since mesquite […]

Chocolate Cake with Caramel-Chocolate-Pecan Filling

February 8, 2014

I would love to be able to credit this recipe, but it’s something my mom’s been making since I was a kid. I suspect it was originally an Eagle-branded recipe, given the sweetened condensed milk and caramels. I haven’t seen Eagle caramels in years. But no worries — you can make it with any kind […]

BASICS: Speedy “Baked” Apple

January 29, 2013

In the winter, I just don’t want to eat cold food. Coupled with the fact that I crave comfort food and I’m trying to cut down from the sugar insanity that is Christmas, it’s nice to have something semi-healthy to fall back on. Speedy “Baked” Apple (serves 1) 1 apple, cut into 8ths and cored […]

Curry Chicken Pasties

January 28, 2013

I really did honestly just throw these together out of what was in the house, so your version may not look like my version. That’s fine, it’ll be tasty, trust me. (: I would like these to have a bit more of a creamy filling, but they’re still pretty good just as they are. This […]

Leftovers for Breakfast Pie

August 6, 2012

I suppose technically, this is a quiche, since it involves eggs and leftover bits and pieces. But I like pie. Mmmm, pie. Since my stovetop is currently unreliable for simmering, I’ve started baking for breakfast. Or more accurately, baking ahead of breakfast and reheating. Pies are easy to reheat — plop a slice or two […]

Homemade Ritz Crackers

November 22, 2011

I bragged about making these on Facebook, so of course then I got a request for the recipe. It is really easy! I got the recipe from one of Peter Reinhart’s bread books. I am embarrassed to admit that I don’t recall which one, but all his books are good. Homemade Ritz Crackers 1 1/4 […]
