Homemade Goldfish Crackers

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

From Kimmykokonut Blog Pictures     Long before Geneveve was born, I followed this blog and marvelled at this woman’s recipes, attention to detail in her son’s lunches, and hoped that I could be as put together and passionate in the kitchen when I had kids.  Maybe the fact that her kid is NOT a […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, a recipe to double

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

From Kimmykokonut Blog Pictures Oh, rhubarb.  The first fruit of spring.  The leaves and roots are toxic but the stems cook down to such a delicious tart treat.  My parents had a large patch of it so I was shocked to see how expensive it is in the store.  I planted a small crown a […]

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Please excuse the lapse in blogging, I’ve been busy with a new baby which equates to much less time and creativity in the kitchen.  Plus typing with one hand for 5 minute stretches is a challenge.  But I’ve decided it’s time to share my top secret granola recipe.  This granola is a variation on a […]

Get my blog entries in your inbox!

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

A Grape Juice Recipe to end them all

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Canned and melding During our joys of jellymaking last fall, I found a really interesting recipe in the tips section of Mother Earth News Magazine (August 2009) where a reader submitted a recipe to make grape juice. Obviously it sparked my attention because I was planning a serious processing party for my grape vine. It […]

Last Fall’s Grape Harvest Results

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

On the vine One thing I have missed from our house in Seattle was our mini-orchard. We had so many fruit trees (plums, apples, pears) that came with the house and produced abundantly. I love being able to walk barefoot in the yard and pick some fruit to eat. Our current house has a much […]

Happy Thanksgiving! What did I serve?

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Not just any holiday, the […]

Cattail rhizome and shoot Cattail Flower I have joined John for another adventure, one I was a little apprehensive about doing but excited nonetheless. This class was all about learning to extract one part of the well-known cattail for edible purposes. We focused on the rhizomes, apparently there are many parts of the cattail that […]
