Black Bean Chocolate Chunk Cookies...
I have a hypothesis about cookies.  No one hates them.  Sure, we all love certain types better than others — but in a land without back fat, would you ever *really* want to turn down a cookie?  I am thinking no.  And I have come to realize that I can use this fact to make my children eat just...
Honey Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake...
I have nothing interesting to say.  Would you call that the summer time blues?  I guess it just has to do with trying to keep everyone entertained, fed, appeased, bathed, and exercised.  While I attempt to keep the house cleaned, the weeds pulled, and the damn bathing suits and towels hung up.  It...
Honey Chocolate Chunk Cookies...
Our rainy spring has turned into a rainy and cool summer here in the northeast.  So that means our pool days have become “ummm, what on earth are we going to do today?” days.  Because, you see, I have figured out the secret to staying sane with the kids at home over the summer:  you must...
Honey Strawberry Freezer Jam...
I’ll start this by blaming the alcohol and the heat.  And my family.  Last week we were on vacation with my parents, siblings/spouses, and kids/cousins in Orlando.  And it was hot.  Like 100 degrees hot with stifling humidity.  We went to Sea World and I nearly melted.  Don’t believe...
Honey Whole Grain and Spelt Rolls...

Banana Honey Caramel Ice Cream with Salt...
So, this was the week when everyone in my family decided they didn’t like bananas — and I was left with four sitting in the fruit bowl (Bananas, that is.  Not family members.).  Of course, the natural inclination is to make banana bread.  Or more likely, the natural inclination is to pitch...
Honey Apple Oatmeal...
I feel sort of silly posting a recipe for oatmeal.  But I have only recently discovered how easy it is to make oatmeal from scratch on a weekday morning. I honestly always thought it took like an hour or something and never investigated further — continuing to buy little packages of oatmeal at...
George Washington’s Hoecakes with ...
My daughter came home with this recipe (presumably copyright attribution to George Washington?) for hoecakes and mentioned that her teacher would like me to make them for the class.  I am generally happy to do so because she has severe food allergies and if I don’t make it, it’s virtually...
