A throwback blog post! I like granola. I’ve never loved granola before because I’ve never had a recipe that really just made me go, “oh yeah!” My Dad’s a good granola eater and has gotten his from the Little Debbie outlet in a nearby town. It’s ok. We ran out and didn’t want to trek… Read More Granola Recipe
Have you ever had one of those sets of days that just stuck it to you? We’ve been healthy this year. I am so very thankful. Last year we were plagued with multiple strains of the flu as well as strep and bronchitis that probably morphed into pneumonia (are you supposed to make gurgling and… Read More Purify This!
A throwback blog post! It’s strawberry season! I’m always looking for something new and yummy to do with the huge amount of strawberries in my fridge. I love that Aldi has their strawberries for 99 cents a pint! So…each time I go in, I buy about a gallon’s worth of strawberries. My fridge is bursting… Read More Homemade Strawberry Syrup
A throwback blog post! It’s true. Kefir is a wonder food. “I wonder what kefir is!” “I wonder why in the heck someone would actually drink that!” “I wonder what good it will do my body today!” When I first heard about kefir, I was adamantly opposed to it. My understanding was that it was… Read More Kefir – Wonder Food
Another first — I made homemade pesto last night!…and I mean the real deal, not a Knorr packet or some other such substitution with things in it that I struggle to pronounce. (Don’t get me wrong — I’ve made my share of packet pesto. This beats its socks off!) Nope, this is a relatively quick… Read More Homemade Pesto – Yeah, Baby!
Ok, so have we established here that kefir is pretty good stuff to be eating on a daily basis? Yes? Good. Kefir’s a living organism, so there are a few things to keep in mind before you get started — The starter for kefir is called “kefir grains.” Not to worry — this “grain” has nothing… Read More Culturing Kefir
Another throwback blogpost! I have to do it. I have to retract my “Aargh” of the other day. I was so very frustrated that the Greek yogurt that I tried to make didn’t set up like I wanted it to…and yet, what I thought was a horrible flop has turned into a really great thing! … Read More Aargh Retraction! 🙂
Another throwback blog post! 🙂 I’m falling down on the job. I suppose being this many weeks (37.5-ish) pregnant allows me a little leeway, and yet, I hate not sticking to something I’ve set. Oh well. To quote The Princess Bride, “Get used to disappointment!” The “Aargh” of this week? I have tried to make my… Read More Aargh & Almond Butter
A throwback blog post! Yesterday I mentioned how we WERE spending a lot each week just on yogurt…nearly $2 a day. It doesn’t sound like much, but that’s almost $60 a month — just on yogurt! That’s a decent chunk of our grocery budget, so I knew that we (I) was going to have to do something… Read More Making Yogurt — Really! (in a slow cooker!)
I’m making yogurt today, which is good, because… I love yogurt. Truly, I love thick, creamy, Greek yogurt. The rest I could give or take, but this… oh my lands. Thankfully, I have learned how to create this obsession yummy treat! I must confess…I have an Instant Pot 7-in-1 that has a yogurt function. I will… Read More Instant Pot Greek Yogurt
