Fresh Ginger-Orange Chutney

A tiny bit tart, a hint of sweetness, and a playful nip of ginger. This bright chutney is the perfect accompaniment for Apple-Barley Chickpea Curry. You can serve it immediately, but you’ll enjoy it even more if you make it a day or two ahead of time. I don’t remember where I got these cute…

Three-Bean Chili For A Crowd (Slow Cooker)

  Nothing beats a hot bowl of chili on a blustery winter day. Plenty of things are tied, mind you, such as Homemade Hot Cocoa, French Honey Bread, and Beef Stew. But did you ever notice that chili is just as delicious in hot weather? There’s something about spicy food that makes you feel warmer in the winter and…

Savory Fougasse

  Don’t judge a book by its cover! Honestly, aside from Great Green Sauce, this may be the goofiest-looking thing I’ve ever made. Well, at least of the things I’ve made that turned out more or less the way they were supposed to . But, wow, is the old adage true! This may be a goofy-looking…

Vanilla Frozen Custard

Here we are, September already! I just had to make one more batch of ice cream before retiring the ice cream maker for the season. Yes, it’s ice cream. But it’s also frozen custard, as all great ice creams are. It’s rich and decadent, and not at all good for you. I love it! It’s…

Lime Sherbet

I found this recipe from Southern Living on MyRecipes.com. It’s incredibly easy to make (assuming you have an ice cream machine.) Cool & refreshing, and very tasty! Mine didn’t come out as creamy as I’d like, but that’s my fault. Or rather, the fault of my crummy freezer. It just couldn’t keep up with the…

Coffee Ice Cream

Oh, this is decadent! I’ve tried a few ways of making coffee ice cream, and have found this to be the easiest & tastiest. I learned the hard way to use decaf coffee. Unless, of course, you’re eating ice cream for breakfast & don’t mind being awake for quite a while. As with most scrumptious food,…

Spelt-Butterbean Salad

I came up with this as an accompaniment to Spicy Ginger Miso Chicken Thighs. Whole grains go with almost anything, and I had some ginger left over from the chicken recipe. Then I threw in a bunch of veggies I had in the fridge that I needed to use up; the result was quite tasty! It’s quite hearty, too, and…
