Official Royal Anzac Biscuit Recipe

Royal Anzac Cookies Recipe

I knew ANZAC (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) Day was coming up and since I’ve never had Anzac Biscuits, I couldn’t resist giving THE royal recipe a go. If this ANZAC Biscuit version was good enough for Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Prince William & Harry then they are certainly good enough for me. People Magazine ran […]

Low Carb Almond Cookies

Low Carb Almond Cookies

Recently, I tripped across this gorgeous food photo over at Food Foto Gallery and was quite enamored with the simplicity of the recipe that could easily be made low carb.

Homemade Mayonnaise with Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed Mayonnaise

I’m probably a little late to the mayonnaise-making craze but I only recently discovered how simple and tasty this is to make at home. Who knew? Julia Child’s Mayonnaise Recipe is a classic and one of the types of recipes that just sounded too fussy for me to even give it a go; however, I […]

Baked Colcannon (Mashed Potatoes & Kale)

Baked Colcannon - Mashed Potatoes & Kale

The St. Patrick’s Day theme continues with my delectable version of Irish Colcannon. Colcannon is traditionally made with mashed potatoes and cabbage but I decided to try curly kale which turned out fabulous. Being a diabetic, I usually eat pretty low carb and I rarely eat potatoes so I’m always looking for a reason to […]

Bake Your Bacon

Bake Your Bacon

I eat a vegetarian diet most of the time but it’s pretty hard to say no to bacon. Bacon makes everything better, right? When I do get the hankering for some bacon, I like to go for the best and for me that’s Organic Sunday Bacon by Applegate Farms. I like their’s because it’s uncured, […]

What’s in Season for February?

Produce Question Mark - Asparagus and Tomato

Eating seasonally is such an important concept, for a number of reasons … Produce in season is at the peak of ripeness so it’s plentiful, reasonably priced, nutritious and tasty. The NRDC has this handy Eat Local reference tool which allows one to check and see what’s in season for their geography and I use it […]
