Orange Elderberry Dressing


Inspired by our need for good health in our lives, I keep making these strange concoctions. Sometimes they taste as good as they are beneficial. I had a part of a jar of Elderberry jelly that I made last year in the fridge that I used as a base for this smart and fruity flavoured […]

Baking it


This wasn’t supposed to be a long-drawn out process. Well…yes and no. You have to spend time with Sourdough to make it ‘sour’. I just wasn’t banking on throwing it in the fridge after the first rising. Stuff happens. So now I’ve picked it out of the ‘chiller’ and warming up again in 2 greased baking pans. Remembering […]

Making my Sourdough Bread

Chard Souffle


I’m finally getting around to this one. I’ve planned it for an eternity and since I did the ‘dried green experiment’. Swiss Chard provides an enormous volume of green material. I didn’t want it to go to waste, so I dried it. That worked really well. Now I need to make things out of it. This […]

I gave away another grocery bag of spagetti squash. I still have  12..13..14…..15! I’m going to a potluck.
