It’s no secret that turmeric is one of my favorite spices. (I even made a very limited batch of turmeric soap once!)

It’s got beautiful color, amazing taste, and has indisputable anti-inflammatory benefits.

So next time you have some left-over rice, here’s an idea: turmeric fried rice.


Superhero Popcorn

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks.  This all natural treat often tides me over in the late afternoon, when lunch is long digested but dinner’s still a ways off.  As a kid, for a fun night every couple months or so when my dad worked late, my mom and sister and I would have popcorn and sliced apples for dinner.  The combo of sweet and salty was just right! And I’ll admit…every once in a while when I find the pantry and refrigerator all but completely bare, I’ll even indulge in popcorn for breakfast!


oven-roasted tomatoes

If your garden’s giving you too many tomatoes than you know what to do with, try this roasted tomatoes recipe to compliment your next dish with their unbelievebale flavor and bold & vibrant hue.  Use cherry tomatoes, Roma, or any other variety you fancy.  Arkansas Traveler tomatoes are what you see on my plate below.  Be sure to choose organic ingredients for the best taste possible.
