It’s Sumo Time!

No need to find a wrestling mat, I’m not promoting a new fitness craze. This post is all about fruit!  The other day my sister sent me an email with the subject line, “They are Back!” and only an image attached. At first I thought it was spam. I crossed my fingers

Caramel Apple Salad

Okay folks here goes – I have been sitting on this recipe for a…long…time. We were first introduced to Caramel Apple Salad at a recipe exchange potluck. Both the Mr. and I went nuts for the stuff. We have since made it for numerous gatherings and he is now the resident expert

Cardamom Peach Cake

Peaches and cardamom are one of my all time favorite flavor combinations. In my humble opinion cardamom is under appreciated in western cooking.

Low Sugar Cobbler with Agave & Coconut

Every day we go through our closets mixing and matching various items to create a new outfit. Sometimes a tailored blouse works with dark blue jeans then the next week the same shirt gets paired with a pencil skirt. Recipes are a lot like outfits and pantries are like closets. We keep

How to cut citrus segments

I wonder if you are like me when it comes to purchasing citrus. I hesitate before loading up on fruits that require peeling. I have a bad habit of buying these sun soaked winter treats only to sit for weeks in the fruit basket. I give the fruit a glance when I

Granola for Giving

There are just two days left until Christmas. I’m confident my readers have finished shopping, wrapping, cooking, cleaning, traveling, etc. and are now relaxing with a cup of tea and a low fat cookie. However I happened to hear in a local news report that twenty five percent of people haven’t begun
