The principal things necessary for the life of men, are water, fire, and iron, salt, milk and bread of flour, and honey, and the cluster of the grape, and oil, and clothing.~Ecclesiasticus 39:31    I live in one of those dastardly suburbs replete with a home owners association and an over… MORE
Bread a staple of life; a principal thing.

About this Cook
Mother of four and husband to one; married for 20+ years. Home schooled for six years--these were my most interesting cooking years. You have to stretch your cooking muscle to keep their interest.
My favorite things to cook
Anything hearty, quick and easy that uses fresh ingredients. We are all hearty eaters in this house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I use to run a gingerbread house workshop that many still ask me about. I will do this again someday.
My cooking triumphs
A few recipes that I "invented" when the kids were wee little things and I was a food happy shut-in. They still receive rave reviews when I bring them to gatherings. Makes being a stay-at-home mother a dream job...
My cooking tragedies
I left the leavening out of some scratch blondies. My then 8 year old daughter worried for years ever after whether or not I knew what I was doing when I began to bake. *sigh*

Best Mug Cake (Paleo)
What a fabulous idea! My daughter has dietary limitations so she is always on the hunt for flourless, dairy-less desserts. This was so delicious I can't wait to share it with her. I made two minor tweaks: I used coconut oil instead of olive oil; and I poured a few chocolate chips on top before baking (I only had a few left in the bag and didn't want to waste them). I think next time I may try it with a little dollop of coconut cream. Mmmmmm! Thanks so much for the recipe.

Pure Maple Candy
Success on round two! Don't give up if you've flopped the first time. Watch a few videos on candy making, read some websites dedicated to the art and then come back and try again. It's worth the effort. Thank you for this simple but elegant edition to my repertoire.

Low-Fat Pumpkin Flan
My first batch was a flop because I burned the sugar! Yikes! Second go round I didn't wait for the bubbles on the sugar I just cooked it until it was a beautiful clear amber color; pulled it off the burner and quickly poured it into the ramekins then continued to follow the recipe to the letter. Well, except that I served the flan warm. I couldn't bear to wait yet another four hours. Success! The flan has a wonderful flavor and terrific mouth feel--even warm. Another fabulous recipe from Chef John!
