Martha Stewart’s Tofu Fries

I’m a big fan of Martha Stewart and have been for a very long time. Years ago when Martha Stewart had her television show, I would tape all her shows and then watch them later after I came home from work.   I loved her cooking recipes and gardening tips, and just her entire outlook on healthy wholesome living.  I even had a subscription to her magazine Martha Stewart Living that was a great resource for seasonal recipes, seasonal gardening, homemade gifts and crafts, and local stories of interest from all parts of America. She was ahead of her time that’s for sure. Continue reading Martha Stewart’s Tofu Fries

Butter Bean Salad

It was a cloudy day when I stopped by my friend Shalini ‘s place for lunch on her birthday back in late April.  I was so happy to have somewhere to go on this cold and dreary rainy day because honestly otherwise I would have been at home binge watching some TV show. This way I got out of the house and spent a lovely afternoon with my dear friend Shalini over a healthy and delicious lunch at her place. Continue reading Butter Bean Salad

All Natural Apricot Jam

My friend Rose recently gave us some homemade apricot jam that was over the top delicious!  It tasted like fresh picked apricots in a jar and we were having it by the spoonfuls!  I even asked Rose if she could save another jar for me, as the jam was so good that we were going to finish it pretty fast.  Rose was thrilled to hear the jam tasted great because as I found out she used a new recipe.  It was a jam recipe without pectin or gelatin or preservatives.  It was an all-natural apricot jam! This is one wholesome recipe! Continue reading All Natural Apricot Jam

ANZAC Biscuits

When I hosted this year’s garden party there were a lot of pretty cool and interesting cuisine.  One of the goodies was ANZAC biscuits brought by my friend Susan.  When Susan asked if she could bring ANZAC biscuits, I had never heard of these before and having grown up in Texas, when I think of biscuits I think of fluffy biscuits you have with butter and jam, or biscuits and gravy.  Susan explained that actually these aren’t biscuits the way we Americans think of them, but rather these ANZAC biscuits are more like oatmeal cookies.  Cool I thought, and asked Susan to bring them.
