Whole Wheat Roasted Banana Bread

Happy National Banana Bread Day! As much as I love banana bread, I really don’t make it that often. Bananas are high in carbs and it’s a pretty ubiquitous snack that can be found on almost any street corner. However, I tripped across this recipe with whole roasted bananas and I just had to give […]

Popcorn Trail Mix

Oh my gosh – It’s National Popcorn Day and I almost didn’t get my post up! Here in California, it’s a pretty big day with the San Francisco 49’ers playing in the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks. The hubs and I were in front of the tube watching the game play out when […]

What’s in Season for February?

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 […]

Caprese Salad with Kumato and Basil Vinaigrette

When I was walking through the produce section, this morning, I saw these brown tomatoes called Kumato. Honestly, I’d never heard of brown tomatoes before or Kumato’s so I just had to buy some to see what all the fuss was about. The package said simply unique BROWN tomato so I had no idea what […]

Bittersweet Chocolate Blondies with Walnuts (Lower Carb)

Today is National Bittersweet Chocolate Day & January 22 is National Blonde Brownie Day so I thought I would have a little fun and combine the two. Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to counting carbs and tweaking recipes until the cows come home. I wouldn’t necessarily call this a low carb blondie […]

Citrus Scented Shortbread

Shortbread is one of my favorite things to bake and eat, so when I saw that National Shortbread Day was coming around I knew that I had to get in the kitchen and get busy. Shortbread origins go back for centuries and the basic recipe is only butter, flour and sugar in a pretty specific […]

New Years Day Leftovers – Skippin Jenny

On the day after New Year’s Day, leftover “Hoppin’ John” is called “Skippin’ Jenny,” and further demonstrates one’s frugality, bringing a hope for an even better chance of prosperity in the New Year, or so says Wikipedia. I love Wikipedia and I love Hoppin’ John so I say we go with it. Yesterday’s Hoppin’ John […]

Hoppin John Soup and Corn Bread

Hoppin’ John is a southern tradition for New Years Day eats and we usually try to have some in our house every year, for good luck. Sometimes we have it pretty traditionally with rice, sometimes over cornbread and sometimes as soup. This year, we went the soup route and it turned out fabulous. I usually […]

Cranberry Coconut Jumbles (made two ways)

I saw this recipe on The Salt and I was immediately intrigued. Cranberry & coconut together? Sounded awful but I couldn’t get them out of my mind. I just had to make them so that I could see just how bad they would be (weird, I know). The flavor combo was so odd sounding to me […]

Whole Wheat Apple Raisin Bread

My husband loves raisin bread and I love to bake so with November being National Raisin Bread Month, I knew that I just had to make some. Unfortunately, 2013 has been a tumultuous year for me and my family with lots of crazy, outrageous moments so I’ve not had as much time to bake as […]
