I first got introduced to this fabulously refreshing drink one night when I came home and my roomie and a pal were sitting at the kitchen table having some drinks.
One was drinking beer and the other vino, but what intrigued me was a small bowl in the middle of them filled with watermelon that neither of them were eating, but instead just turning the pieces over every so often.
“What’s with the watermelon?” I asked.
“It’s soaking in bourbon,” they told me.
Ten minutes later when I returned to the kitchen after taking a shower there was a bourbon watermelon slushie waiting for me in the freezer. (more…)
This delicious protein-packed side of gluten-free black quinoa & black beans goes great with streamed or roasted veggies. (more…)
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.
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!
