Black Bean Humus

Posted May 4, 2013 By Sandy

We are big black bean fans (I suppose that is partly because we are allergic to some of the other beans).  I use black beans in lots of my recipes, but none of my recipes are as famous as my husband’s black bean humus. When Malcolm makes this recipe for potlucks, it is usually a […]

Potato Soup

Posted January 18, 2013 By Sandy

When I was little, my mother use to make a version of Potato Soup that I greatly disliked.  Don’t know why (although, I did not like much of my mom’s cooking as found a whole new world of food when I got out on my own!!) — I just didn’t like it. Fast forward about […]

Apple Cinnamon Kale Chips

Posted November 28, 2012 By Sandy

If you are like me, you are looking for ways to include more nutritious greens, like Kale, in your diet.  Kale is an excellent source of beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and rich in calcium.  I use it in smoothies, but I have been told that it makes really good tasting ‘chips’.

Spicy Potato Fritters

Posted October 4, 2012 By Sandy

I don’t promote many recipes that call for deep frying.  Not sure why as I recommend coconut oil and I don’t think you can get too much coconut oil!  This recipe for Spicy Potato Fritters looked too good to pass up!

‘Putting Up’ Summer Fruit

Posted September 13, 2012 By Sandy

Late summer is a busy time of the year for us.  We get loads of fruit from our yard, our friends and the local Farmer’s Market.  We don’t grow a garden — there are too many deer and rabbits around here that would eat it all before we could harvest it!! Over the last couple […]
