Spring Garlic Nettle Pasta Sauce

Disclaimer: This recipe uses stinging nettles, and you do not boil them and discard the water at all.

The Huntress---Kate Quinn A find myself getting WWII novels, even though they tend to be the same story in a different cover. This one was different though.

Dirty Golden Latte

This is similar to my¬†Bulletproof Golden Iced Coffee¬†that I shared last summer. However, while it is warming up, it is still a little on the chilly side, so I wanted something a little warmer. It's a warm turmeric drink with coffee, which I think dulls the sharpness of the turmeric taste. Dirty Golden Latte 3/4 … Continue reading Dirty Golden Latte

New Moon Cocoa

Moon Milk is all over the place now. It's sort of like Golden Milk, but with Ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb that some people swear by, and some people say is a load of nonsense. I don't know all of the ins and outs of ashwagandha, but I do know that I have awful periods, and … Continue reading New Moon Cocoa

I looked around for a recipe which would use the two, but did not find anything that appealed to me. So I made up my own recipe. Then I decided that the bread needed … Continue reading Pineapple Banana Bread

Camels and Memories

I got this little guy at Goodwill the other day, and I have mixed emotions about him. I have a few other bronze statues, and I got them from Grampa, who collected them. When his alzheimers started, he got very into giving me things like some of the statues, and some pieces from his rock … Continue reading Camels and Memories

Avocado Milkshake

I seldom have enough avocados to do anything with them other than eat them plain. They are quite expensive, and not in my budget. But Aldi has had them on sale for the last month, so I am eating a lot of avocados until they stop the sale. For this recipe, you want a very … Continue reading Avocado Milkshake
