Homemade Organic Yogurt

Homemade Plain Yogurt with Dehydrator

My mom had a nifty yogurt maker with little bitty cups. Now we eat pints of yogurt and I cook East Indian food with it as well as use it in baked goods. Those little cups weren't my choice. This way makes a good amount of yogurt simply. Of course add your own fruit or sweetener. Best part you know what went into your yogurt with no fillers! Read More About Making Yogurt at Home!

Gator Joe & Some Slaw

Gator Joes

We got caught in a food rut. This wonderful Sloppy Joe inspired dish was impetuously good and just made from basic ingredients in the pantry. Could be a weekly treat!

Gator Joe & Some Slaw

Some Slaw

You want Some Slaw with that? It is one of those slaws that you can't get in a normal cookbook. Just put together simplicity, with flavor nuances you may not have expected. I used my mandoline to get a fine shred to blend everything cleanly so each bite has an even mixture of all the flavors present. Shown here as a topping on the Gator Joes

Singapore Ribs

This recipe comes from a Portuguese language Asian cookbook. We used to get little beef ribs there and slow cook them in a simple oven with no "temperature" gauge. The idea was a good marinating time beforehand of at least 2 hrs. Luscious and unforgettable.

Blackberry Tapioca Pudding

Blackberry Tapioca Pudding

My grandma Dorothy introduced her grandkids to the wonders of blackberry picking and the best blackberry pudding imaginable. She of course used white sugar back in the day. Nevertheless, this pudding was normally eaten when it was cool enough not to burn our lips. The hint of cardamom and use of agave nectar brings it to a higher level.

Pickled Garlic

Asian Inspired Pickled Garlic

This is my first pickling effort. These pickled garlic turned out so fantastic we just wanted to eat them like olives. The garlics get mellow with the boiling, but still carry a wonderful flavor. Be patient and let them marinate a while.

Zucchini Hash Browns

Zucchini Hash Browns

Summertime one gets creative with Zucchini. This is an excellent way to add that to a summer breakfast remake on hash browns. A much lighter and flavorful version than one with just starchy potatoes.

An unimaginable sweet, crispy and healthy snack made in your own kitchen! No added sugar or fat and just a light flick of salt. Too bad fresh peaches aren't in season all year around.
