First Attempt at Macarons

So, since I have celiac, my decent pastry options are limited. I also have a tendency to go all-in, especially if it involves new gear. I decided to try macarons, because they aren’t worse off by being gluten-free. They use almond flour. We also… Continue Reading “First Attempt at Macarons”

Preserving Lemons

One way to brighten a dish is to add preserved lemons. They are ridiculously simple and pack a punch. They keep in the fridge for months. Start with a small jar, two lemons and salt. Many recipes are for large jars, but we don’t… Continue Reading “Preserving Lemons”

My Pretty Lunch

I made a salad today with the beets from our box. A little labor intensive, but good. Started with a beet, three mushrooms, and a shallot. Sliced the mushrooms and diced the beet and shallot. Roasted the beets and shallots in olive oil, salt,… Continue Reading “My Pretty Lunch”

Peanut Butter

One of the things we make for ourselves is peanut butter. It’s pretty easy, and makes good peanut butter without the preservatives and such. First buy a boatload of peanuts on Amazon, or wherever you buy your stuff. We get ten pounds at a… Continue Reading “Peanut Butter”

Misfits Market-Part 2

So today I could build my box. I was planning on doing it right at 3, when I could start doing it, but that didn’t happen. So by 6:30 the selection was okay. Note to self, do this at 3 next time.

Misfits Market-Part 1

So we are trying a new thing. In the past we’ve done a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). If you’re unfamiliar-it is a subscription for produce from a local farmer.
