Savory Hemp Bread with Herbs

Beautiful, Aromatic Hemp Breads

Muffin, Cracker, Biscuit, or Pizza Crust? This is another recipe that seems to be having an identity crisis. On the other hand, a multi-purpose batter that comes together quickly is an asset. The ingredients are pantry staples; weighing and measuring the dry ingredients…

Sweet Potato and Nut Butter Snack

Early morning Qigong sessions three times a week are energizing and really get my day off to a good start. It took me a while to figure out footwear – sandals, sneakers, or bare foot. I settled on some sneakers…

Eggplant Over Easy

It has been REALLY edgy around here lately and I haven’t felt adventurous in the kitchen. I have cooked; mostly tried and true recipes which have already been posted. I am not holding back on recipes to publish a cook…

Half-Baked Potatoes

This is an old family favorite, the direct opposite of ‘twice-baked potatoes’. They are so easy that you really don’t need a recipe; it is more of a technique and we almost forgot about them! The result is a potato that is…

Sweet and Sour Salad

Not everyone likes beets and I find that surprising. It can’t be the texture because cooked beets have almost the same texture as cooked carrots and those are fairly popular. My taste perception is that beets are much sweeter than…

Seven-Layer Salad for Rita’s Birthday

When I asked Rita what she wanted on the menu for her birthday dinner, she requested that the #1 Son (Rita and Teresa’s only brother) Jorge to make his special Seven-Layer Salad. I have a different recipe somewhere for a salad…
