Man cannot live on naan alone

We adore Indian food. When I say adore, we’re talking sell-your-kid-to-the-circus-to-have-it kind of adore. Our boys love naan, an Indian flat bread which often becomes a meal in itself. Deborah B. (sweet friend) of Deb’s Perfect Bite shared this recipe with me. Can I just tell you, it’s truly amazing. The yogurt.makes.it. It is good and hot and buttery. I love it enough to make it for my boys-who-belong-in-the-circus. I hope you do as well. You can read more of Deb’s Perfect Bite here:  Continue reading »

A Blackberry Bundt

I typically don’t buy blackberries in November, but a friend gave me two pints. They were gorgeous and delicious. After the boys and I ate a handful, I decided to try my hand at a chocolate bundt cake. It’s always fun to have an excuse to try something new. My excuse was a dinner date with friends. I found this amazing recipe and tweaked it a bit. Hope you find it equally enjoyable.

Toffee Bark

With the holidays quickly approaching, I want to share a recipe that is tried and true and was the belle of the ball at the local Farmer’s Market. This is made with our whole wheat flour and makes the perfect dessert, hostess gift, cookie exchange-you name it. Wrap it in a cellophane bag or if you are like me-a vintage jar, and you have a beautiful, simple token of affection.

Apple of my eye Whole Wheat Apple Chocolate Chip Bread

SO  I have this friend Evie. She has 5 girls. I have 4 boys. When we get together, we are a force to be reckoned with. Recently we took a field trip to an apple orchard. Seemed innocent enough. A gorgeous day to enjoy the fleeting warm temperatures before fall fully set in. We armed our brood with bags to fill with their pickings. Little did we know that this little field trip was going to nearly bankrupt us. Ok. Not literally, but boy were we surprised when all was said (and weighed) and done. What started out as whimsical day at the orchard turned into a lesson of resourcefulness. We will be eating apples for months to come thanks to the freezer and of course the following delicious recipe. Hope you enjoy. Next time we visit the orchard, we will bring along a scale to weigh the apples as we go.
