No-Knead Crusty Whole Wheat Bread {with an overnight rise}

Today’s post was inspired by a friend who posted a recipe on Facebook for no-knead bread that has a slow rise overnight. The ingredients in that recipe? All-purpose flour, salt, yeast and water. I thought I could make it a little healthier and more tasty {although I didn’t try that recipe, I am sure it … Continue reading

Crushed Cherry Ice Cream {Dairy Free}

Today’s ice cream post is again dairy free, made with cans of full-fat coconut milk. It almost has a sorbet taste to it though, because of the sugar-syrup I made with water that I cooked the cherries down in. It can easily be made with dairy cream, if you prefer a milk-based ice cream. Fresh … Continue reading

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie {and Grandma’s Rhubarb Pie}

With summer underway, red-ripe strawberries and rhubarb are emerging from gardens and into the produce isles of local grocery stores.

Whole Wheat Pie Crust {made with coconut oil}

Today’s writing is about sort of an experiment that I did. I made pie crust with whole wheat flour {well, almost completely whole wheat flour} and coconut oil. I love whole wheat, don’t get me wrong. But when it comes to pie crust…ehhh, let’s face it…working with all-purpose flour is a bit easier. If you … Continue reading

Ginger and Garlic Glazed Sweet Carrot Recipe {For Canning}

I tried my hand tonight at canning carrots. I have canned salsa, spaghetti sauce, cucumbers and okra in the past…but never carrots! I suppose I have canned all of the others because you can get by canning those items with a water bath. When canning carrots though, a pressure canner is needed. Fortunately for me, … Continue reading
