Winter to Spring Super Slaw

I know I've been away for a while but it's been one of those times when life gets in the way. Nothing bad, just lots going on, including a good bit of travel. Taking little trips is one of my very favorite things to do, so I try to do it as often as I… Continue reading Winter to Spring Super Slaw


Brussels Sprout Kaleslaw with Ginger-Dill Dressing

I've been all about exciting salads this summer. I love salads and make lots of them, but they are one of those things that have to be changed up regularly so they don't become routine and boring.

Dal with Kale and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Today I decided to experiment with a variation on a plain dal recipe and add some kale and sun-dried tomatoes for some color and nutrients. I started by cooking 2 cups of dal in 4 cups of water. I used about half red lentils and, when I ran out of that,  half channa dal. I… Continue reading Dal with Kale and Sun-Dried Tomatoes


Better than a potato chip ~ Part 1

Oh, potato chips.... little salty crunchy things that get so many people into trouble. Why? Because they taste so good.... but they have too much fat, too much salt and about 5000 calories a handful. I have been on a mission to find a great substitute for them, and found something that brings us partway… Continue reading Better than a potato chip ~ Part 1
