Warm Harvest Apple Breakfast features warm apples, pie spices and lots of healthy seeds over a bed of any grain you choose. In this case I chose my favorite grain – oats – but in their purest form. The oat groat. Can you feel it in the air? The cooler weather, scents of sage and […]

Crisp Fruited Salad with Maple-Yogurt Dressing

You don’t eat meat or dairy?  What DO you eat?  Even though it has now been about a year, I am still asked this question regularly. Folks still think that when animal food are cut out, that there is nothing to eat or whatever is left is cardboard! Does this salad look like cardboard?  Heck […]


Warm Cinnamon Skillet Apples

Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad.

I don’t know about you, but I loathe unloading the dishwasher.  It was so horrible that until recently would actually hand wash the dishes in the sink rather than unload the dishwasher.  Why the avoidance?  Because I had about 300 different plastic containers shoved in the “plastic container cabinet” with mismatched lids, brands and sizes.  It took about […]
