Watermelon Pickles


I love pickles of any kind. When I first tasted watermelon rind that had been pickled I loved it, but I could never find a recipe that tasted like the ones I had. So with much experimentation (and several complete failures), I made these. And they are good. I plan on buying more watermelon just to pickle the rinds!

Strawberry Rhubarb Topping


Yesterday was National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie day.  I love the combination of strawberries and rhubarb, but not a huge pie fan. So I compromised. I made a strawberry rhubarb topping.

Rhubarb and strawberries are one of my favorite combinations. Rhubarb starts coming on in May and just as it’s finishing, the strawberries burst on the scene. So what better way to say good bye to Spring and hello to Summer? And best of all, it’s so easy! Continue reading

Bread of the Month – Olive Cheddar Bread


The first Friday of every month is going to have a different bread recipe – the Bread of the Month. Last month I shared Grandma’s Rye Bread (the absolute best), and this is the second installment. As I thought about it, “what kind of bread should I do next?”, I was snacking on a plate of cheddar cheese and green olives (My favorite combination). Then the light went on! Olive Cheddar bread! So hear it is – and it was good. Oh, and by the way, I’m working on a video on kneading – watch for that! So here ya go – Happy Breading!

Buckwheat Pancakes with Strawberries and Cream


Buckwheat is not wheat at all. It is a gluten free seed from the fagopyrum escuentum plant. These seeds (called groats) can be used like bulgar or ground into a flour. One of my favorite cereals is cream of buckwheat. It has a naturally sweet flavor and is really good for you too! It’s rich in dietary fiber, helps lower blood sugar and cholesterol and is rich in antioxidants. And every 1/2 cup serving has 14 grams of protein! And above all else, it tastes good!
