Okay, so the holidays are coming and I thought I’d try something different from the ever-so-popular peanut butter cups—although I must admit that I just don’t seem to tire of them! This new recipe is peanut free, and has a holiday taste of rum, real rum… hic!… plus, they’re filled with healthy ingredients! According to my volunteer taste testers, they are yummy!
Tempeh is becoming increasingly popular as a healthy alternative to meat. Last fall, I began a wonderful journey of exploration into the world of homemade tempeh. After a fair share of hits and misses, mostly hits, I seem to have come to a method that works well, and makes yummy tempeh!
Okay, this is so yummy…. had to make a second batch! I had a craving for General Tao tempeh I just couldn’t shake this week. So, I searched for some recipes, played around with the ingredients, and voila! This is the first time I make black bean-soy tempeh. Boy, is it good! Another batch on the way. 🙂

I had ordered a bunch of nuts, seeds and fruit from Prana… so yummy and fresh! Now and then, I’d reach into the pantry and try to figure which I would eat for a snack. I wanted all of them, but opening all those jars… no time for that! So, I had an idea…
By now, you may know how I love to try out new kitchen gadgets! I just finished making a new batch of sauerkraut with the pickle pipe and pickle pebbles…. great little tools for fermentation!
You may find this hard to believe, but I was in charge of bringing dessert to our family dinner this year… right… So, for those who asked, here is the recipe for Chocolate Coconut Cups, which I created for a friend who was allergic to nuts and couldn’t enjoy the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups…
