Ripe, tart plums give this smoothie a bit of a kick, which is just what I need in the morning.

Sweet Strawberry Carrot Muffins

When I bought a lot of strawberries, I started dreaming of the things I could make with them, including strawberry muffins. One of my goals is to eat more vegetables so I decided to make some strawberry carrot muffins. Unfortunately for the world, searching "Strawberry Carrot Muffins Recipe" does not yield lot of results that just feature the strawberry and carrots. Fortunately for me, I had some ideas about how to put them together.

Salisbury Steak

Before I tell you about a dinner recipe that my husband would never refuse, I do want to make an announcement about my commenting system. It's been updated, and I'm afraid I lost past comments, but thank you so much for them. I love hearing from you!
Now onto dinner.

Obsessed with these Sausage Muffins

I have made sausage cornbread muffins before, but yesterday I had a new brainstorm. It wasn't a regular brainstorm. There wasn't just wind in this storm, but water raging and a flash of lightning and so began a new recipe: sausage muffins with sauteed mushrooms, jalapenos, red pepper, garlic, cheese, carrots, and even some whole wheat flour, served with Tapatio or Sriracha hot sauce.

Strawberry Yogurt and Oats

Has summer hit hard for anyone else? It seems like it's been about a million degrees out here in Northern California. Normally I love oatmeal for breakfast, but it's just so hot to eat. I sometimes will blend 3 tablespoons of dry oatmeal into my smoothies, but I was ready for something different.

Easy Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

My husband, Jay, told me recently that he had a new trick to make hard boiled easy to peel, and that he just used it. When he told me how, I said, "That won't work!"
I was proved wrong.
