Gluten Free Sesame Oat Biscuits

Gluten Free Sesame Oat Biscuits

Southwestern BBQ Vegetable Hash with @BeyondMeat Crumbles

    My first attempt at using Beyond Meat products went so well yesterday.  I can’t wait now to try out all their other non-meat products in my recipes.  It was kinda weird using ‘meat’ again?  The taste in this hash was spot on.  I originally planned on mixing up just a simple vegetable spicy hash with potatoes, onion and some…

Spiced Orange Carrot Cooler & 10 Summer Drink Options

     I’ve come to the conclusion lately, or accepted the realization that I don’t really enjoy smoothies as much as the rest of the world.  I’m thinking that I really should be more of a juice person.  And just accept myself as I am.  No guilt. No trying and trying to get a feel for that thick, veggie/fruit packed…

  Chop.  Stir.  Dip.   Eat…… My first attempt at cooking with Garlic Scapes.  Nice and mild in comparison with their sister Cloves.   Garlic scapes are the “flower stalks” of hardneck garlic plants, although they do not produce flowers.

7 Layer Root Vegetable Roundup

7 Layer Root Vegetable Roundup

    One of my childhood Sunday dinner memories is watching Mom carry a big, rectangular Pyrex glass pan, choke full of love, over to the center of our table.  She’d hold tight on either side with oven mitts to keep from scorching her fingers.  What was in that steaming hot pan? Sliced potatoes, layered with onion, a little salt…
