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 [...]
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.
I’m still down with eating meat for protein, but sometimes I want to give my body a rest from meat protein as it is a [...]
I highly suggest reading the comments before making this recipe. There have been varied results and I think we finally figured out what caused the variation. Be sure to use dried coconut flakes and not coconut flour to get the right results.
Sometimes I feel like I have hit the jackpot [...]
Because I have a ‘beaucoup’ of apples (they’re in season, ya know?) I decided to try making a broth flavored with apples. Rosemary pairs well with chicken and apples so I threw several sprigs of that in the pot as well. Why would you want to make broth with apples instead of veggies like [...]
You know you have a winner of a recipe when you burn over cook it and it still turns out so delicious that your hubs raves about it. The hardest part of writing up this post was getting a picture that actually looked appetizing because it was not a pretty sight after I [...]
I have never been a fan of pie, especially pumpkin pie. That’s probably why I am 40 years old and have never made one until just now. The reason for my sudden ‘interest’? Because that was the job that was given to me for Thanksgiving. My sister-in-law may not have done so had [...]

Ordinarily, I like to make my sweets grain free. This is not because I because I have a wheat allergy because I certainly eat plenty of sourdough; I just don’t believe that soaking or sprouting reduce the anti-nutrients enough to justify making them with grains. However a few months ago Jill [...]
My husband and I just celebrated out 14th wedding anniversary. We didn’t do anything mind-blowing or special in the eyes of what most people would call special, but for me it was because we ate a dinner at home. Best yet, my hubs cooked most of the meal. I say ‘most’ because [...]
Curried Tuna Patties with Coconut Chard and Rice
Most of us should be eating more seafood. The problem is that most seafood is sourced from unsustainable means. It’s a misconception that farmed fish are sustainable. Farmed fish are fed with smaller fish from the sea that are needed by the sea animals that [...]
So, I’m sort of on vacation this week. No, that’s not true. I’m definitely on vacation. Ya see, my kids packed up and headed to my parents’ house for the week. I have the entire week to myself. The. entire. week. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? And, after last week, I totally feel like I [...]
