Spring is Sprung

Spring & Summer in our house means pineapples….yummo!  I have fond memories of road trips to the beach which always included a stop at a roadside stall to pick up fresh pineapples.  These sweet treats originated in South America & were named by early European explorers who thought it kinda looked like a pinecone.  Hmm,Continue reading “Spring is Sprung”

Lentils

Cooking substitutes?

In quarantine so you decide to do a little cooking – you’re in the groove but dammit there is something missing…sigh!  What can you substitute?  Yup, I totally understand & have been in this situation a few times too.  Some substitutions take a little more thinking than a simple sultana for raisin swap out.  Truthfully,Continue reading “Cooking substitutes?”
