RECIPES: Christmas Dinner-Standing Rib Roast, Yorkshire Pudding, Shaved Brussels Sprouts

The Dirty Biker and I had a darned swell Christmas. Neither one of us have family in the hood so don’t have any big gatherings to attend, and I think all of us are over the insane shop, shop, shopping that has become so much a part of the holiday. That’s not to say the

RECIPES: Sour Cream Biscuits

  Cold, rainy mornings and biscuits belong together. Cold you ask? In SoCal? Come on! I reckon it’s all relative, but it was supposed to hit freezing last night, which is why our mighty Meyer Lemon Tree got to spend the night indoors. I blame this cold snap for my bready cravings. We don’t have

On another note…

This post has absolutely nothing to do with migraines or food. Nothing at all. I mean the characters eat, but… Characters you ask??? YES!!! My novel is available now!! Woo Hoo!!!

RECIPES: Homemade Granola

I like cereal. There’s just something about the juxtaposition of cold milk and crunchy cereal that really works for me–taste-wise that is. Satiety is a whole different matter.

Living the Wild Life

Life can sure get crazy being a townhome-steader in Southern California, what with the wild predators always lurking about…

RECIPES: More for the lunchbox!

Yep. I’m alive! The bad migraine streak passed, and I’m once again feeling motivated. Saturday I put together my food list for the week, then hit Farmer’s Market and Sprouts. A couple of the recipes turned out to be great lunchbox ideas!

TIPS: Don’t give up… right?

A couple of days ago, I started to write a post and stopped. Why? It was too depressing. I’ll let you take a look… and then we’ll chat on the other side… _______________ I’ve been quiet the last couple of weeks because quite frankly, I’m discouraged. It hasn’t been a good month in the migraine

THE FARM: Eggshell Transplant Day!!

We’ve been nervously anticipating this day, the day we take our precious little seedlings, the ones we’ve nurtured and loved and watched grow, and plant them. What if critters eat them alive? What if they’re not ready for the great outdoors? What if we KILL them??? But… they’re getting mighty crowded in their little eggshells.

RECIPE: Chocolate Chili and Homemade Wheat Crackers

You get a two-fer-one on the recipe front today! After my disorganized food week the week before, I spent last Sunday making sure I had some good, fun, hearty lunches made for the week.

CLEAN TIPS: Reading Labels… ALWAYS
