Wheat-free Arrowroot Crackers*


  While pondering what I will make with my left-over Arrowroot flour I found other birds-of-a-feather trying the same thing online.

Getting to the Heart


Happy Valentine’s Day. This is the closest subject as I can think of - that has to do with hearts and such. We eat them. I can barely believe it myself. Heart is worse than a tongue and better by far than liver (in my biased opinion). Hubby likes it stuffed (the good part is the stuffing of […]

Tired of Zucchini


I have to admit it. I’ve been overwhelmed with the bounty. Some is starting to spoil.   Everyone I know is so done with helping me to spread the Zucchini joy.

Green Pea Hummus (3 cheers)


I`m making Hummus with dry peas instead of chick peas. This is my ‘cheap’ version, seeing that after I grow peas for consumption, and seed, I then plant extra peas just for the nitrogen-fixing of the soil…so there’s plenty.   Author: ME   2 cups dry peas 1 tsp baking soda water 4 tablespoons lemon and 2 teaspoons […]

Meal-in-one Muffins


I start by adding variations of mixed vegetables and meat into my Quick Mix recipe for baking powder biscuits. Then I fill a muffin tin level with the top. Since I don’t use wheat , I switch the flour for rye flour. This makes great mini-lunches for me when I’m travelling. It sure is hard to […]
