Lefse – Norwegian Flatbread

Have you stopped to wonder upon the vast amount of flatbreads that seem to run though every culture imaginable? Seriously check out this list on Wikipedia divided by region. Insane! It makes me think I could do an entire blog series about flatbreads from around the world. Hmmm … maybe I should! Well here seems […]

Pineapple Coconut Dessert Bars

Pineapple Coconut Dessert Bars {gluten free, vegan}

My mom used to make these pineapple bars when I was a kid. For many years now I’ve been thinking I need to make these vegan and gluten free but kept forgetting to ask her for the recipe. She gave me a recipe that was really a mixture of two different recipes and I set […]

Getting Dirty: Chronicles of A Rookie Gardener

I go through phases of thinking I’d be a good gardener. I’m even sure I mentioned it here. This time though I have real motivation for it. The CSA program we were looking forward to buying into again this year has been cancelled. I nearly cried when I got the news. I loved our CSA […]
