Egg Drop Soup

First, I must apologize for being lax on posting.  Some sort of cold has hit us and kept us from being normal functional human beings.  However, coming through the other side of some tissue boxes, I can share a great soup for the sick that you can make even if you are suffering. If you […]

Raspberry Lime Sweet Rolls

Raspberry season has not quite come to an end.  Until the first frost you can still pick at farms like Heider’s Berry Farm in Woodstock.

Guava Limeade

Are you sensing a theme?  Maybe this is just the beginning, but since I don’t have a slow juicer (but desperately want one!), I’m making a variety of ades this summer.  I just love their sweet/tart taste!  I’m probably such a fan due to my sweettart addiction as a child.  It’s like a healthy version […]

x-Chef provided me with this french press in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own. Hands down if you are brewing hot coffee the french press is not to be overlooked.  Some may view it as low technology, but there is a reason that the glass carafe is a favorite. The ease […]
