Will try to take a better pic later. This was the lazy American photo taking at work as well. (iPhone)
Kare Kare (pronounced care-re, care-re)is a Filipino dish that is usually made with oxtail, peanuts (or peanut butter), coconut milk, and veggies like bok choy and/or eggplant or beans. This [...]
It never ceases to amaze me how stubborn and stuck in my American (U.S.) ways I can be. Have you seen the guest post that wrote for Ruth’s Real Food about me learning to come around to my hubby’s Filipino culture while seeking out real food solutions? Well, apparently I still have quite [...]
Squid is not something we eat on a regular basis, but recently I did manage to get some fairly inexpensively and it’s a great source of magnesium, zinc, and copper. So, when I am trying to reduce the budget and I can get it on sale, I jump at the chance to add [...]
We had an early frost this year even though the fall weather has been just stunning. I pulled in the last of my tomatoes about a week ago (October when I wrote this). They have been sitting on the counter for a week ripening up and they were about ready for me to [...]
I really believe that the title of this post can be On Being (fill in the blank) at Christmastime. This is not meant to be a whine fest or to feel sorry for myself. But I do want to highlight a problem in today’s culture and that is exclusion of people who don’t fit [...]
Beans and legumes are a great source of nourishment when properly prepared. Chickpeas, aka garbanzo beans, used in this recipe contain manganese, folate, protein, copper, phosphorus, and iron.

Are you ready for a super easy snack or gift giving idea? Here it is . . . Caramelized Pecans. Pecans by themselves are a little bitter for my liking. But add a little sweetener to them and WOWZA! They are really special!
My co-op recently started stocking plain raw pecans as [...]
I don’t know why I ‘ve never made creamed spinach at home before now, because I absolutely love it. I think maybe it seemed like a bit of a luxury. I mean, why waste the cream on veggies? Fresh veggies are so tasty they need no added flavor, right? While this [...]
Pssst, can I tell you a secret? I’m a bit of a Scrooge. It’s not Christmas itself, but what it has become that has me turned off by this time if the year. But here I go, making a post to perpetuate the gift-giving frenzy that has us all running around like the proverbial [...]
Besides the fact that I am trying to avoid toxins that are prevalent in store bought skin care products, I also needed to make some body care products for the holidays as gifts! I’m thinking that I will put this sugar scrub in half-pint mason jars and wrap with a pretty ribbon to [...]
