It’s not so much how I feel about eating flour, it’s how my body feels after eating flour products. Is flour the problem? Are whole grains a better option? I was speaking with a couple of friends lately, and each of them was lamenting eating more flour than they usually had during this time. They both felt like it was just “too much.” These unsolicited
Being a vegan is great all year round but it is never more fun and exciting than in the spring. As the world wakes up from winter, markets are bursting with spring produce. Asparagus, peas, radishes, carrots and vegetables in all the colors of the rainbow are coming into season. It’s time to make something fresh and tasty and let your mouth know it is
I originally wrote this post a number of years ago but the information on the Instant Pot still rings true but some of the facts don’t: I have been using an Instant Pot for many more than a couple of years. It’s more like 7. Sadly, Bobby Anderson no longer driving a truck or talking about the Instant Pot but I do hope that he
Sprouting beans can make them more flavorful, nutritious and easier to digest. It’s rare that I spend time reading my own cookbook, except when I want to cook a recipe that I have not cooked in a while.

Most recently I made some Black Bean, Wild Rice, and Millet Veggie Burgers. I
Fresh shelling beans or “shellies” such as black-eyed peas, crowder peas, and butter beans can be hard to come by. Shelling beans have edible seeds, but the pods must be removed which can be a cumbersome and time-consuming task. Many farmers prefer to let the beans dry before harvesting because the beans are easier to remove from the pods and they are a shelf-stable crop
What is Mealthy? The Mealthy MultiPot is a programmable slow and pressure cooker similar to the Instant Pot® and Mealthy claims to be the number 2 selling electric multipot after the very popular and most recognizable brand. Honestly, I do not need another multicooker but if I did, the Mealthy would be a good choice as it comes with an extra gasket and silicone mitts.
Even though the weather is still less than ideal in some parts of the US and elsewhere, outdoor grilling season is upon us. As summer rolls in, so do the invitations to picnics, pool parties, and myriad outdoor gatherings. None of those outings ever seem complete unless we fire up the grill and load the table with summer favorites like pasta salad, potato salad, and
