Strawberry-Basil Popsicles

Popsicles are the new cupcakes. You heard it here first, folks! Not only are they waaaaaay easier, they are amazingly refreshing on a hot summer day. And they don’t go stale. And you don’t have to argue about Team Cake vs. Team Icing. Everyone’s on Team Popsicle. I have made two batches now and I […]

Blueberry-Balsalmic Glaze

If you only make one recipe from my blog, let it be this sauce. I couldn’t believe how amazing this was. As we sat down to dinner on Sunday night, Scott took a bite before I’d sat down. “This…is good.” High praise from the man who usually wolfs down his plate without coming up for […]

Blueberry Cornbread

You know it’s a good weekend when on Saturday, you pick several pounds of blueberries and sweet cherries and on Sunday, you PR in a 5K. Well, I had a great weekend, because I did both of those things and also made a pretty amazing dinner tonight. Ususally on Sundays, we go over to Scott’s […]

How does your garden grow?

I am so excited about my little container garden. It seems to be doing so well! We have had a LOT of rain and some warm, sunny days and things are happening! A few days ago I got my first teeny tiny tomato. Well, now it is golf-ball sized and has invited about 15 friends […]

Tis the season

…For farmers’ markets, that is! Our community farmers’ market is back for the summer! Today I picked up some yellow and green squash, garlic, garlic scapes, and a sage plant (mine was decimated by the recent storms…and this one is much bigger and ready to use). I can’t wait for many happy returns this summer, […]

Book Review: Fat Chance

Fat Chance by Robert H. Lustig, MD “Nature made sugar hard to get. Man made it easy to get.” The premise of this enlightening and informative book is that sugar (more specifically, fructose) is slowly poisoning us all. Consumption of fructose has doubled in the past 30 years (high fructose corn syrup was invented in […]
