Roasted almonds?  Yes, one of my favorite foods and an important part of my eating plan.

What about my family’s eating plan?  Well, my husband is one of the main reasons I cook and bake as religiously as I do; he comes from a family of excellent cooks who love to eat. However, recently, he went on a diet (I had no one to critique my desserts!).  Then he sent me this email:

“Was thinking you might want […]

Vanilla Almond Butter

Posted on January 22, 2010

The creation of this delicious, homemade vanilla almond butter is hardly my own.  One of my favorite readers, Courtney, over at benefityourlife.com, gave me several amazing presents during the holidays and one was a bottle of super tasty vanilla almond butter from the lovely Katie Kearney over at naturallynutty.com. Yum!

Nutty Bread

This hearty, gluten free bread with seeds and nuts is delicious anytime of day.

I think this bread would also be delectable as an after dinner treat with a smear of dairy-free butter (I’m very into this Earth […]

Chocolate Walnut Torte

Food is politics.  More than ever.  So, imagine my surprise when I found this comment the other day, right here on my little ol’ blog saying:

“I love your recipe blog, but really don’t agree with your political views or comments.  Try to stay more focused on the food instead of politics. You may keep more friends that way.”

I’d never thought of being less than genuine and hiding my views as way to gain friends.  Call me naive, that’s one strategy […]
