Officially Summer

We unpacked the ice cream machine yesterday. Two batches have been made, both dairy-free, one egg-free (and of course both gluten-free, as goes with everything here). I got both recipes from Danielle Walker's first cookbook, Against All Grain.

NingXia Red Popsicles

Just sharing a recipe I made the other day,  knowing that this week was going to be very hot. This is a really nice way to get Big Brother his NingXia serving and keep him cool at the same time.

A Snowy Day

"Brace for Brutal Cold: Arctic Blast Invades the US" Well, it looks like the Northeast won't be experiencing this particular "Arctic Blast", but we did wake up to snow!

Early to rise

My boys are early risers. They generally wake between six and seven every morning, and the day is "go, go, go" from then. Big Brother and I are breakfast people. My husband, not so much (though he does drink some NingXia Red). I really enjoy the ritual of breaking the fast with some eggs and… Continue reading Early to rise
