Springtime Sourdough Pancakes With Cultured Fruit

As promised, here is the recipe I mentioned yesterday. The thing that makes these pancakes a springtime favorite is not actually the pancakes themselves, though they are delicious! It’s really the cultured berries that we pile on top that are seasonal. So, the recipe for the berries will be posted here, too. Notice that these …

It’s Spring! What’s For Breakfast?

Breakfast food is so great that people put it in it’s own category. When you eat “breakfast food” at another time of day, it’s sort of a big deal. I always used to love going out for breakfast or brunch, when it was acceptable to eat foods from the “breakfast” category or the “lunch” category, …

The White Stuff – A Great Sauce Recipe

In the winter, we go for warm and wonderful comfort foods like chili and cornbread, turtle brownies, and rice pudding with cinnamon and raisins.

A Change In The Weather

Seasonal eating is fun! Watermelon in summer, pumpkin in fall, leafy greens in spring – just seems natural, don’t you think? It’s fun partly because most of us don’t even think about having a nice hot cup of peppermint cocoa in July, so by the time the holiday season rolls around, it really seems like …

At Long Last, the Pumpkin Pie Recipe!

Why “at long last?” Because I am late posting this. It’s a season that is surprisingly full of meetings, events, and deadlines, and I am behind. I mentioned in my last post that I would give the recipe for the pie I made last week, and that is what I intend to do before another …

Gluten-Free Brownies From the Frugal Gourmet

This post is a re-blog from Nick, at Frugal Feeding, a favorite food blog of mine. Gluten-Free Brownies Specifically gluten-free fare isn’t something dabbled in particularly often at frugalfeeding. The fact these brownies contain no gluten is simply a product of my desire for the squidgy, dense and moist – enjoy. Gluten has many positive …
