Don't let the simplicity of this recipe fool you.  It's the best butter sauce I've ever tasted.  We're hooked and I think you'll be too.  Use the sauce for artichoke dipping sauce, asparagus and other veggies.

I am endlessly experimenting with granola.  This is my latest version.  It's yummy on top of yogurt, a smoothie bowl, or hot cereal.  It's also great on salads, as a snack, or ice cream.  Enjoy!

This is one of my very favorite recipes.  I make a double batch of it in a quart jar. Then I store it in the fridge to make chocolate milk, drizzle over crepes, drizzle over fruit, and sometimes I just eat it by the spoonful.  It's delicious!

This is a ferment I frequently do, because I can just toss a variety of vegetables in a jar when I'm prepping vegetables for the week.  They're delicious as a snack, as a condiment, on a salad or in any other dish that needs a punch of flavor.  My son swears by drinkin...

Have you ever used the green chilies that come in a little can?  They are amazing! They add great flavor to Southwestern food.  When you add them to tortilla soup, taco soup etc. they take it from good to great.  They're also delicious diced in scrambled eggs, an omele...

I adore these roasted red peppers!  They are so yummy in hummus, diced in a salad, in dips, pureed in salad dressing and in a sandwich or wrap.  They really add great flavor to savory dishes.  Of course, you'll get more nutrition and beneficial bacteria from them, if y...
