Spring Harvest: Ramp Pesto!

Spring Harvest: Ramp Pesto!

Spring Ramps

We were hiking through some beautiful, soaked fields (as is typical of New England springs) on a gorgeous warm and sunny evening. The sun was setting as our sextet, comprised of mothers and babies in carriers, trekked onward over small streams and through the dappled sunlight of the forest we came upon the beds of beautiful, vividly green ramps.

Simple Snack: Kale Chips

Simple Snack: Kale Chips

Kale chips. Did you know just how easy they can be? I have always used the oven to bake them and the results were consistent and always delicious. Recently, I was crunching on some kale chips that my mother-in-law made. We were talking about how easy they were. I asked if she baked them in the oven? No, she said. What was her secret? I had to find out!

Here & There: Lessons Learned

Here & There: Lessons Learned

The stirring of the monitor caught my attention as I glanced at the clock. NQGBebe was up from his nap…after only 30 minutes. I paused for a moment – I did not understand this sudden move in the game of babyhood.  Instead, I shifted. A change in lesson plan. I stopped what I was doing (working on this post for the thousandth time?!), pushed aside my list of things to do and bounded upstairs to greet a smiling NQGBebe.

Vegan Cinnamon Date Rolls

Vegan Cinnamon Date Rolls

It has been a challenge to find moments during the full days to share words, pictures and food with you! I am working on finding a better system to do this! I am feeling less foggy, more alive, and there is a pep in my step. It is a wonderful feeling which, frankly, just kicked in this past week and I sure hope it sticks around! Let me share with you some cinnamon rolls. There is no added sugar in the filling for these gems! What? I know, NQGBebe was a bit skeptical, too! Let’s go!

Time Out: Winter Fruit Salad

Time Out: Winter Fruit Salad

I have put myself in a quick timeout (NQGBebe is napping!)  to let you in on how to make a delicious winter fruit salad! I have never really been fond of fruit salad. Browned bananas, canned peaches and fruit cocktail come to mind. That was before this recipe came across my radar screen. Bosc pears, tart apple, figs, apricots, raspberries marry up and settle in a warmly, spiced syrup made with a vanilla bean, star anise pods, lemon peel…oh, please! All the delicious flavors in one giant bowl. Join me as I walk you through the easy steps!
