I don’t have a lot of time this morning, but I have been wanting to post this recipe for weeks. I’m finding I never have a lot of time, though, so I’m just going to sit down and do it. You need this before Christmas, trust me. I am really on a caramel kick right [...]

Dear Canning, I’m just not into you. I love mason jars, though. Thanks, Jamie I don’t make it a secret that I don’t like to can. I feel like it’s one of those situations where I can embrace technology and make traditional homesteading a little easier without going all the way over to “the dark [...]
Mango Chutney This recipe was inspired by a recipe in Modern Spice written by Monica Bhide. 2 1/2 cups diced mango (2-3 mangos) 1/2 cup raisins 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger 1/4 cup palm sugar (or honey) 1 tablespoon coconut oil 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon curry powder 2 dried chilies, [...]
Kale Mint Pesto This makes a lot of pesto. It will freeze very well, though, especially if you freeze it in small portions (ice cube trays work great ). This can be used in so many ways.

Here is a great way to preserve almost any vegetable – Homemade Vegetable Bouillon. I saw this recipe on 101cookbooks.com quite awhile ago and thought it was a brilliant idea. In fact, I couldn’t believe I had never thought of it or saw it before.

It will include 11 delicious Tanzanian-inspired recipes with color photos and it will be available for download [...]
I kid you not…the following recipes are probably the best recipes I have on this blog and you must make them immediately while there is still snow on the ground. I have a major weakness for brownie sundaes, so I’ll warn you that I might come across as overly excited about this subject. Major weakness. [...]
Happy New Year! Since I concluded 2010 with several sugar and butter centric posts, it only seems fitting that my very first post of 2011 is on…detoxing. The holidays are over and while it might seem trite, our bodies could probably use a break from all of the incredibly fun and tasty havoc we’ve wreaked [...]
A few weeks ago I posted how to freeze vegetables. Well, it’s still on my mind. The farmers markets are alive and kickin’ with produce (for now) and we’re even starting to see some fall favorites — squash, sweet potatoes, and apples to name a few. Bring it on! In my last post I focused [...]
***Updated 7/13/10: We taught this class tonight to a great group of women from Cruise Holidays and thought it would be good to revisit these recipes as we are now fully emerged into Farmer’s Market season. Hope you are enjoying it as much as I am!! I am pretty sure that this is my favorite night of the 6 [...]
