It’s my third cookbook review of Mofo, and again, I am giving away a copy to a lucky reader!
I am also sharing with you a recipe from the book – for one of the best smoothies I have ever had. Really, Jason keeps asking for it, I keep making it. I mean, a candy bar smoothie?
Yes, it really tastes like a candy bar. Adding the protein is what we generally do, and [click to continue…]
Kabocha. I have become quite versed at cooking this winter squash – I am getting extra arm workouts every day. I may as well give the kabocha its own category here, I already have so many ideas to share with you. and I come up with new ideas nearly every day. Today I bring you a simple hash brown – squash instead of potato. This is a completely new [click to continue…]
errey day I’m waffelin’
Okay – not every day, but often. Also? Recycled line, I’ve used it before.
You might know I do love my waffles, though. and that I am anything but traditional with them. Sweet? Yes. Savory? Absolutely. As sandwich bread? Why not. In place of a sandwich altogether, in stuffed waffle form? All the time.
Today, because it is Sunday and we’re having waffles for breakfast, I bring you a few waffle recipes to choose from – some sweet, some savory, some stuffed, all good:
grilled cheese wafflewich sliders
sweet zucchini waffles with mango
raspberry coconut flax waffles
carrot juice waffles
croque monsieur stuffed waffles
tahini kale stuffed waffles
cheesy tomato stuffed waffles
pancakes or waffles? ever enjoy them savory?
I woke up to a wonderful crisp and cool morning. As I sit here and drink my coffee on the deck with the pups, I am smelling the air (the dachshunds are sitting here sniffing too), getting a hint of October.
I love what October smells like.
We have been incredibly lucky with a perfect summer. Very little rain, perfect temperatures, all kinds of sun and fun. There are times when Portland’s summer goes way to quickly, where the sun does not always play along, and many of us feel the cooler weather comes too soon.
This year, I am ready.
I am ready for the cool mornings and evenings. Walks in the neighborhood as the sun goes down, with scarf and gloves and coats on the dogs. Autumn produce and changing flavors – deep and smoky and hearty.
Are you getting ready for fall?
Please come say hello at Attune today – I’m sharing my sweet and salty cluster crunch.
this recipe was shared with Healthy Vegan Fridays.
It is cherry season again.

All right, not every day. Special days, birthdays.

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 warmer temperatures bring cravings for lighter foods. What is the phenomenon that hot summer days = lighter appetites? Even if dinnertime is comprised of lighter fare, dessert is still a must, am I right?
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.
Please visit me at Attune to see this summery recipe:

I am going to be that cliche that talks about summertime… again.
I am just loving the summer like weather we are having in Portland … already. Like, shorts and tees and sandals weather… every day. Daylight until almost 8pm – you all know my favorite part of summer is [click to continue…]
