This is a very nice cake, simple, delicious … just enough sweetness. For me, I love to enjoy it plain with a fresh cup of brewed coffee because it isn’t so overpowering in flavor that the coffee takes a back seat. Rather they both share the stage where each compliments the other. Very nice. And, in addition to being delectable as a stand alone cake you can also use it instead of biscuits if you want to bring your Strawberry Shortcake up a notch or two. And this is especially true if you typically use an instant [...click to contimue reading...]
So it’s come to this, I’ll admit it. I’m a big fan of cabbage. Brought up in a French Canadian Household and on Sunday we’d have Boiled Dinner with a big salty ham sharing the pot with a variety of veggies including cabbage. And that there cabbage would just soak up all that ham fat and be soo darn good. … Nowadays, however, I’m trying to atone and nurture my circulatory system back to an ”as-new” condition so I’ve traded the ham for skinless chicken breasts and ham fat for olive oil. But you know what? That love for [...click to contimue reading...]
We tried the long forgotten Apple Dowdy recipe as described in Della Lutes’ Book “The Country Kitchen”. This is her Aunt’s Recipe from the 1890′s as she describes it and it was certainly around for many years prior to this as it passed from generation to generation. Now Della did not specify Organic “This” or Organic “That” in her recipe simply because everything was organically grown back then. But unfortunately, now we must, since we really have two classes of foods to choose from. One could say ”old-school vs. chem lab” but I won’t … so everything organic and please hold the [...click to contimue reading...]
We kick off this series with a head to head competition of Organic Popcorn vs. Non-Organic Popcorn. Now as you know, popcorn is a fantastic snack, good for you and good nutrition. I like it’s taste, it’s mouth-feel… even making it is fun. My personal preference is the air popper…easy, no mess and no fat.. plus no saucepan to clean. But, like most natural foods Popcorn has been messed with. With popcorn you have your usual problems of modern mass production methods of spraying, fertilizing etc. which may be “not-good”. Let me put it this way, I just don’t want [...click to contimue reading...]
OK, I’ll be the first to admit that this is too simple to be called a “Recipe”, but heck I have to call it something. Anyway these will be posted in the recipe section along with the old school written versions. Enjoy!
This is an excellent recipe for an Organic Apple Crisp. If you’ve never had Apple Crisp before you’ve got to try it. It’s fairly easy to put together and absolutely delicious. And when you serve it you’ve most people like to serve it warm (not hot) on top of ice cream (organic vanilla of course) or yogurt/frozen yogurt or with heavy cream. .. And a good cup of coffee along with it isn’t too bad either. Anyway, this is a recipe previously posted but lost in the Yahoo hosting debacle (don’t get me started). I decided to move things [...click to contimue reading...]
