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

January 30, 2013

I am being overrun with greens from our CSA. It’s that time of year, it happens. Mark’s not so much a fan of greens as I am, so we end up with more than we can easily eat, sooner or later. What to do with a plethora of greens? Make soup! This recipe is easily […]

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 […]

Things I’ve Learned About Boysenberries

May 30, 2011

In January 2010, I planted, on the advice of my nursery-man, four little sticks. In the intervening year and a half, I’ve learned a reasonable amount about said little sticks, and I’m going to share it now.
