My sister recently commented on all of the love that lemon and lime receive, while grapefruit never seems to get the lead in anything. That got me thinking.

Fruity Salsa Fresca
I’ll stop apologising for the very intermittent blogging and just accept that this is where I am at right now. I’m happy to be sharing what I do, and that you’re reading. I’d love to interact more. How about on Facebook? Or Instagram? Continue reading
It’s that time of year. When food blogs burst at the seams with recipes using all manner of citrus, especially Meyer lemons. I have my own uses for them (check out this wicked vinaigrette, or this lovely candied peel and simple syrup, perfect for cocktails, or this divine bundt cake, which doesn’t specifically call for Meyer lemons, but would be fabulous with them).
Oatmeal Banana Muffins
There’s something about muffins. I’ll go months without making them. Then I’ll rediscover how quick and easy they are and how healthy they can be and I start making them all the time. Continue reading
Cranberry Clementine Marmalade
I’m not a fan of buying stuff for the sake of stuff. Gifts, no matter how small, need to have meaning. So when I got word that we were doing an exchange at a party we’re going to ($5 or less), I knew I was going to make something.
My Pastry Needs Help
We went apple picking recently.

Whole Grain and Apple Salad with Maple Miso Dressing
If you’ve been around my blog long enough, you’ve no doubt noticed that my posts are quite seasonal (and often begin with a mention of the weather, which got quite cool last week, then warm again, and has evened out now). As a result, there tends to be a theme over the course of any given few weeks. Stone fruits in the summer, greens and such in spring, and right now? Apples.
Spiced Plum Chutney
Summer has spoiled us. It’s been balmy, downright cool at times. The abundance of fruits and vegetables has been dizzying, and we’ve done our best to enjoy all that we can.
Stone Fruit Salsa
I love salsa
Tomato salsa is great. There is decent stuff available in jars year round, and in late summer I love making my own. But fruit salsas are special. Sure, some stores sell mango or pineapple variations, but they aren’t the same as pieces of fresh fruit, heaped on a chip or served alongside sausage or halloumi style cheese (check out my cherry basil salsa from last year).
Mid Summer Bounty
Summer is in full swing and we’re enjoying it. Join me this week for a look back at some of the wonderful recipes that have come from the bounty of this part of the season. Continue reading
