When Parade.com came to me asking what I like to do with all those ripe bananas, my first thought was the obvious—make my favorite banana bread. However, this was a challenge to go beyond the basics and these frozen cookie nuggets took the prize in my kitchen.
Well, two peach trees, three apple trees and loads of berry bushes exploding with fruit compelled me to blow the dust off and give this fancy dehydrator a chance.
When it’s hot, I get a hankering for tropical fruit and this simple papaya dish makes into my breakfast, lunch of even dessert rotation.
Fava beans, or runner beans, are known for their sweet taste (and yes, also for being a favorite of Hannibal Lector).
A new pantry and party staple…
Many people just see loquat trees as ornamental and miss out on the tasty fruit!
As I divide time between my home and office this keeps me nourished and satisfied (it’s cute, too).
A lunch stop at The Purple Pig in Chicago had me craving this dip for the past week, luckily it was easy to recreate.
Delicious, easy and gluten-free. What more do you need?
This feels like an indulgent snack, satisfying salty, crunchy cravings in a healthy way.
