Falafel with Herbs

I did not make these. When I received an offer to develop a a recipe for a healthy snack I thought… Why not? Snacks are good; healthy is good. I’ve never tried making falafel. It’s one of those things I love but always thought it would be too much work to make. While we may … Continue reading…

Oatmeal Sandwich Bread; culling cook books, keeping memories

Sandwich Bread

Attempt number two at making sandwich bread was…. interesting. I managed to buy flour, but, when I got home I discovered it was cake flour not all-purpose flour, which is not even closely related to bread flour. Remember I’m doing it online and the supermarket sites aren’t quite as sophisticated and informative as Amazon. I … Continue reading…

Oatmeal Bread – 1st try; spring sunshine

Oatmeal Bread

I saw a post on Facebook the other day commenting on the fact that everyone in the world (apparently) is baking bread.

Chocolate Chunk Zucchini Spice Bread; Bye bye bunnies :-(

I’ve been making a lot of zucchini bread. The only kind I’ve never made is the one that used to sneak into our office a million times every  summer 25 years ago. You know the one… It was just called ‘Zucchini Bread’…. Not Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread or Lemon Zucchini Bread or Cheese & Olive … Continue reading…

Oatmeal Drop Biscuits; going organic

Oatmeal Drop Biscuits

I may have mentioned that I love soup. Mon mari likes (not loves) soup for lunch with his sandwich, but if I serve it for dinner, which I normally do the day I make it, he has to be bribed with bread. Because he, according to him and in his own words, has ‘no willpower … Continue reading…
