Dear friend, how are you this day of June? I am well.
Do you need another summer salad recipe? Of course you do, especially this one, which has Italian flavor and includes quinoa, America’s answer to everything right now.
Something about summer, perhaps the fresh fruit, makes it the ideal pie-baking season. In fact, I’ll tell you a secret. I only like to eat fruit as is or in pie crust. Forget about those buckles, betties and flops. Forget fruit on the bottom of my yogurt, not interested. I like my fruit unadorned or wrapped in flaky pie crust. I am psyched to try this new recipe for pie but of course I’m already dreaming of a way to tinker with it.
File this tip under Ick but if you like chickpeas (I abhor them, I think I’m allergic) and you run out of eggs and you need some eggs for a recipe and it’s the middle of a blizzard or some such act of God, maybe this egg replacement tip will be useful for you.
Have you read any of Jane Green’s novels? I don’t think I have but they do have the loveliest covers. Anyway, she’s a publishing success yet she’s taken to kickstarter to publish her first cookbook. If you cook or have any interest in the power of social media, click over and read it.
Who are the yogis among you? Take a look at how far yoga has “strayed” from its Indian roots. I think all the straying is great. Whatever brings more people to the yoga mat is a good thing.
You’ll stop feeling guilty about your obsession with yoga pants after you read this frightener.
Independence Day Decor
I’m not all “decoratey” but these 4th of July mason jar candles are super cute and a craft that even I , all thumbs mccoy, could manage.
