Raw Kale & Radish Pesto with Zucchini Noodles

Are you a fan of KALE?

Can’t say that I have been to date, 😉 in spite of liking almost every other kind of veggie there is!

But this post over at Girl Eats Greens grabbed my attention today, as I browsed the WP Reader.

Looks so yummy and healthy too. 🙂

Happy Eating and Week! G

Girl Eats Greens

One of my favorite things about spring turning into summer is all the deliciousness that continues to show up at my local farmer’s market. While I don’t buy all my groceries there, I do spend time every Sunday walking along with my pup and seeing what’s new to the market. What I’ve seen a lot lately? Fiddleheads. I have no idea what to do with them. But I’m dying to try them. I also stumbled upon a bunch of bright red radishes.

Growing up, I was never a fan of radishes, I thought they were too bitter. But as I’m getting older I think a lot of it had to do with the preparation of the radishes. As in, there wasn’t any. I was handed a whole radish to pop into dill dip. Radishes can have a pretty strong flavor – but if you break them down, thinly slice or…

Got Pretzels to Use Up? Check Out This Recipe List! ;-)

I’m NOT a big fan of pretzels but I DO use them when I make:

Slow Cooker Party Mix. 

The problem is, where we live, there seems to be no small bags of pretzels, just LARGE BAGS that leave me with a lot left over, when I make a batch of party mix.

Thought I’d check out some other ideas for using up pretzels today and I found this list:

27 Perfect Ways to Eat Pretzels

I’m still undecided what I’m going to try from this list, maybe the Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars or the snack mix.

But I definitely will be able to use up those pretzels! 😉

Do you like pretzels? Have any recipes to share that include pretzels? Please do! 😉

Have You Ever Made Rye Bread from Scratch?

rye bread

I’m making scratch rye bread this afternoon, after finding this yummy-sounding (and easy) recipe over at:

The Hungry Mouse

(click to see full recipe with how-to photos).

I’ve printed out the recipe and have all the ingredients on hand, so I’m ready to go!

I love making scratch breads. Such fun and a good arm workout too. 😉

Speaking of printing the recipe, if you copy it  from The Hungry Mouse, you’ll just get the text when you paste, which suited me fine. I didn’t want to have to delete all the photos before printing. 😉 The photo above is actually from Flickr. 

For any of you who have tried rye bread making before, you’ll probably already know that a lot of these recipes are complicated and take a lot of time. This one doesn’t. 

I’ll let you know how mine turns out.

It’s a perfect day for baking here in BC, rather chilly and rainy. 

How is your weather?

We are having a cool start to summer here but that’s just fine by me.

Happy Baking. 🙂

 I really do love cranberries! And for so many reasons. 😉

Their unique taste,beautiful deep red color, nutritional value, even their shiny, glossy texture! The interesting way they are grown and harvested.

And of course, their special significance at Christmas and all the memories that enjoying cranberries over the years, conjures up. 🙂

My blog-bud Caroline Brown over at Earth Friendly Gardeninghas graciously agreed to do a co-post (new blog word???LOL) on cranberries.

I’m providing a  cranberry loaf recipe (see end of this post)and Caroline shares her wisdom on this fall fav. fruit in this archive post from:

On the Menu Tonight: Black/Turtle Bean Soup with Cornbread Scones

It’s another cool, grey, rainy day here in Interior BC.

I’ve got lots on the go with projects this weekend so I  decided to make a nice big pot of Black Bean Soup with Cornbread Scones for supper, so easy and delish.

Here’s the recipe for my version of this classic bean soup. It’s a little bit spicy and oh so satisfying.

And a perfect warm-up dinner on a day like today.

The Cornbread Scones are a new recipe from my upcoming cookbook so that one, I can’t share (yet)! 😉

What are you cooking this weekend?

Happy Cooking and Happy Weekend! 🙂
