It is officially summer.
Okay, not for another couple weeks, I suppose, but for me? Summertime is here.
We are having bright warm sunny days – mid eighties all this week – and light nights where we enjoy some good patio time.

The farmers markets are again the source of my delights – lusciously sweet Anjou pears eaten in the car on the way home. Several were saved long enough to create a smashingly impressive dessert that is so easy to make, with real simple ingredients.
Topping things with buttery caramel? Definitely.

The first few days of April I completed a five day juice cleanse and then another several days of juicing and mostly raw foods.
For several lunches I made my ginger-cashew nori rolls, using whatever fillings I found in my produce drawers. There are two rolls in the photos – a mango roll (um, yum) and a pepper-bean roll. So [click to continue…]
You know when you make something you like so much, you cannot wait to make it again? You immediately think of several variations of ingredients that you cannot wait to try? You bring the leftovers for lunch, and spend the morning thinking about it, until you just break down and eat lunch at 10:45 am?
No? Just me?
Mmm. Well, I am still [click to continue…]
To kick off the first week of the Second Round of Meatless Monday A to Z, what I have today is not so much a recipe as it is one of my favorite snacks.
Easy snacks. Tasty [click to continue…]
It is really wrong to be buying bottled soda water at the store when I have a soda machine at home, right?
