One week of school is in the books, and I’m still alive. Turns out waking up early isn’t so hard if you make it to bed on time. (I know, duh.) Joe and I have about 20 minutes for breakfast, so I’m getting back into the mode of making something quick and filling. Quick so […]
Jeff had two days off for the all-star break this week, so our family did a mini staycation at a local water resort. We sipped on cold drinks, played in the waves, and took 3-hour naps even though we insisted we were not tired. I repeat, we were NOT TIRED. For my personal food safety […]
A few years ago I started making breakfast cookies. Most mornings I’m a grab-n-go kind of person, and who doesn’t like the idea of eating a cookie for breakfast? But then I went gluten-free, and my baking life came to a halt. I wasn’t a huge fan of baking to begin with (it’s so messy…and […]
Lately we’ve been soaking up as much of our beautiful Arizona spring weather as possible. I spend the early morning reading on the porch, covered in a thick blanket, sipping hot coffee. The kids spend early afternoons in the shade coloring and playing. But already by late afternoon, the temperature in the house is creeping […]
Leila and I experimented in the kitchen yesterday with some California raisins, nuts, chia seeds and cinnamon. We were trying to make a healthy snack that would be perfect for before dance class (her) or after a run (me). I thought for sure that we would have to do a few rounds to get them […]
One of the first things we planted in our community garden was a variety of radishes. Not something I buy from the store very often, but surprisingly exciting to pull out of the ground and nibble on. Our first few radishes were small, pulled up by tiny hands, beautifully pink and purple. Joe and Leila […]
I’m not sure why it took me so long to learn how to make a frittata. Maybe I was intimidated by the word “frittata”. It sounds kind of fancy. Or maybe it was because for a long time I didn’t have an oven proof pan. As a newlywed, I learned to cook on a nonstick […]
The other day, I went searching for a granola recipe with no added sugar. I found one on Pinterest labeled “sugar-free granola”, clicked through to the recipe and found honey in the ingredients. Hmm…not quite sugar-free. I started playing around with the ingredients I had on hand and came up with this mix. Oats, almonds, […]
Last month, the California Raisin Marketing Board flew me out to Fresno to learn more about raisins. Not only did I learn about how incredible this little fruit is, but I got to meet the farmers who grow them, walk in their fields, taste test different varieties, and see how they go from dusty fruit […]
