We received pineapple-guavas in our CSA box about 3 times. The first time, it was 2 or 3 and we sliced them open, scooped out the fruit, and ate it. The 2nd and 3rd time we received about 6 to10 of them, so I decided I needed to discover something I could make with this […]
These almond oatmeal apple scones are divine. I would make them day after day and eat every single one if I could. They are filled with amazing goodness of oats and apples flavored with cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond extract. I adore almond extract, the flavor is amazing and addicting. I discovered this sweet recipe […]
Mmm, sweet breads are one of my favorite desserts. Zucchini bread, cinnamon swirl bread, banana bread, etc, etc, etc. Because they are bread they feel a little bit healthier than eating a piece of cake, though odds are they aren’t healthier at all. This one even has a glaze/frosting which makes it pretty much the […]
The sweet potato is a typical vegetable served during the fall and winter months. Perhaps you even grew up with it traditional at your Thanksgiving table; even smothered in marshmallows, brown sugar, and butter. That is probably the favorite presentation of sweet potatoes in the Garrett household my husband grew up in.
If you are going to serve chili you serve cornbread along side it; if you are going to serve cornbread you serve chili with it too. That is how I grew up, these two were united, never one without the other. The tradition carried on with my family, Craig would come home, smell the scent […]
We have two plum trees, I believe I have mentioned this before. They ripen at different times and have different flavors. The Santa Rosa plum is a dark purple and juiciest when bitten into, the Satsuma is closer to a red and hardier. Both are good but for different reasons.
Nate’s brother got married a week ago. The wedding was in southern/central utah so we had a little bit to drive to get there. But it was a beautiful ceremony. The bride and groom both looked absolutely amazing. After the wedding, lots of pictures and driving back to Orem the family wanted to go to […]
Its really fun having a husband who enjoys cooking almost as much as I do. Of course Nate usually does the “outdoor” cooking, you know grilling, anything over the camp fire and with our smoker. We actually do a lot of cooking indoors together as well, depending on what we’re making, but pizza, pasta, tacos, […]
Mom writer here. I know you haven’t seen much of me lately. Perhaps I have been too busy, too distracted, too lazy or too uninspired. But today I have a wonderful muffin recipe for you.
I use Google Calendar to organize my life. I have a calendar for my day to day life. I have a calendar for the work events I have to be at. I have a meal plan calendar. I have calendars from the executives that I work with at work. I have a blog post calendar. […]
The 23rd of February was National Banana Bread day. Although I ended up not having time to make this scrumptious bread until the next day, I still wanted to honor the “holiday” and was pleased to find some frozen bananas in my freezer. For this recipe I started with my basic banana bread recipe, with […]
Last Sunday, I just had the need to create something. Do you ever need to do that? When it grabs hold of you, you feel unsettled until you can create. That is how I felt last week and so I was grateful for the down time Sunday afternoon that allow me to make and bake […]
I don’t have any good stories to share that relate to chocolate zucchini bread. So we’ll just get on to this delicious recipe. Yum! I got this yummy recipe from Nate’s aunt from her mom. She makes it as a cake, but I think bread is cuter. The only thing I added extra to the […]
Does putting yourself in a new situation make you uncomfortable. It certainly does for me. We have a wonderful market here in town that would be considered the Latin Market. Craig had encouraged me to go shopping there but it was new, it was different and I wasn’t sure about it. Once I went I […]
Having a vegetable garden is pretty awesome. I say “vegetable” garden because we also planted strawberries, raspberries and blueberries that have been completely pathetic. We got maybe 10 strawberries each about the size of my pinky nail, no raspberries, no blueberries. I’m hoping the plants come back next year, but they look about 90 percent […]
So in an effort to eat more healthy, I figured making a bread-like dessert would be much more healthy than a cookie or cake-like one. I have no idea if that is actually correct, but because there is fruit in this, you can believe that its better for you. I just hope that they don’t […]
