Quicky Microwave Orange Marmalade

Do you like orange marmalade? the bitter-sweet tangy kind with real pieces of orange peel in it? So do I.  Sooo good on a fresh slice of bread, even better if you sneak in some butter.

Lovely Quinoa Salad

I came up with this little beauty in a time of need. I NEEDED Tabouleh. Now, not later. The problem was that I had no tomatoes. Or cucumbers. My Bulgar jar was on the low side too.

Even when I (shamefully) tried these ready-made-just-add-water muffin mixes, I still had to leave some of the cups muffin-less. Now that my conscience is clear, I can proceed to… Continue reading Whole wheat Banana muffins

Daily minutes and cucumber salad

This Friday morning I woke up determined to get back in the saddle. Four weeks of utter chaos (aka "vacation") left me yearning for some good old routine. The queen of toddlers is back on track, in daycare and away from indulgent grand parents influence, my husband is back at work. Now its up to baby Tom and me… Continue reading Daily minutes and cucumber salad
