Homemade Corn Tortillas

You might wonder why I would be posting a recipe for Homemade Corn Tortillas in the first place. There is nothing new about this recipe – it’s the same recipe that many people have enjoyed, probably for centuries. It’s a method of long standing because it works so well ....more

Brown Butter Pecan Cookies

Do Moms still do this? Bake a batch of cookies while the kids are at school so that the house smells amazing when they walk through the door? Our weather seems to be making an early turn toward fall, which has me thinking about those first days of school every year, both from my own childhood, as well as the girls’ ....more

Creamy Vegan Zucchini Dill Soup

We are still on a zucchini kick around here. Nothing wrong with that as far as I can see. It’s a good year for squash, with plenty of rain and nice sunny days in between ....more

Blueberry Margarita

Alright, so it’s Monday. I have to admit to finding Mondays not-so-terrible myself. It would be downright churlish of me to complain about the start of a new week of doing something I love ....more

Lemon Garlic Zucchini

Do you know what special event we are celebrating today? I bet you don’t… It is “Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Night”. Woohoo! ...more

Coconut Milk Fudgesicles

Coming up with a good dessert can be a challenge in the summer time. We don’t have AC, so unless it is going to cool off really well at night, I am not turning on the oven. We eat a lot of fresh fruit, and enjoy plenty of ice cream, but while that may satisfy us, it doesn’t do much for the blog, ya know? ...more

Zucchini and Black Bean Quesadillas

I know a lot of people complain about how prolifically zucchini grows, and I might even make a joke about it every so often here on the blog, but honestly we do love it. You still might want to lock your car doors if you stop by and leave your car in our driveway for very long, though. Zucchini have minds of their own, and have been know to form little squads that somehow make their way to the back seats of the unwary visitor ....more
