In my quest to add more seeds and whole grains to our menu, I decided to make some Buckwheat Waffles this Saturday morning. I found this recipe at Epicurious (which I think was the very first food website/blog that I ever used online back in the day...), and it worked extremely well. I will definitely … Continue reading Buckwheat Waffles, Anyone?
Time change day here in the US..... the next week will be run on caffeine (okay, is there a week/day that isn't?). Happy Wake-Up!
Hello, folks. 🙂 Sometimes we find something online that we just need to share, and this blog by Broma Bakery is a perfect example. "How I Stay in Shape as a Professional Baker." It's a long blog that is worth reading to the very end, and it reminded me of a very important truth: enjoy … Continue reading How to Eat…
Sometimes you buy something because the price is right and it looks good, even if you don't have a plan for it.

These are the two I also always make at the holidays and while the cookie recipe is a family secret, the Date Bread recipe … Continue reading Traditions with a Healthy Twist
I've been a recipe, food magazine, and cookbook collector for decades -- as you can imagine, this means clearing out every now and then, or giving things away that fall out of use. The Internet put a whole new spin on collecting new recipes, but I like printed copies, so I ended up with binders … Continue reading Cookbook Clutter
So here we are, ten days into 2019, and it's been a crazy few months! From an incredibly busy Thanksgiving through a Christmas that brought with it some health issues and challenges that toned down our celebrations, but also gave us quieter time to reassess our goals and plans for the New Year. For me, … Continue reading A New Year, a New Start…
Even though we're not into the really cold weather yet here in Syracuse, I have been wanting Tomato Soup for days. Finally, tonight, I settled on Tomato Soup and a Toasted Cheddar Cheese Sandwich for dinner. So what if it's 75 degrees outside right? Confession: I've never made my own Tomato Soup. I make all … Continue reading Drop Dead Simple Tomato Soup
