Wool blankets, cozy slippers, candles, and pumpkin all walk hand in hand when autumn rolls around up here in the north. Days might be labeled gray, cold, and miserable by some, but when you have a long winter season fast approaching, we think it’s best to take a cue from the leaves and keep our speech beautiful. A rainy and dreary day becomes a cozy candle kind of day perfect for warm drinks and pumpkin muffins. Isn’t so much of life colored by our perspective? Keep things cozy this fall and winter with creative colorful words and tasty nourishing pumpkins treats! [by Erin Vander Lugt]
We are big proponents of family tradition. We love tradition in all it’s forms, but we especially like designating days of the week to certain “treats”. Friday night is Pizza Night! Mom makes pizza, dad picks a movie. We lay a big plastic table cloth out in the living room and we devour a saucy pie while we watch a family-friendly flick. Our oldest son looks intensely forward to our evening traditions, but especially so to pizza night. So without further ado, here is one of our favorite Friday night pies…
I have an unabashed, unadulterated, unrelenting love affair with sourdough. Once I discovered its great versatility, I started using it in everything. So in my ever-curious desire to come up with new sourdough recipes, I discovered these peanut butter and jelly sourdough pancakes. They’re very simple and they’re actually a great way to pack a PB&J sandwich to go: just use the pancakes as the bread, spread your favorite jelly or jam in between, and you’ve got a fairly tidy little sandwich. Enjoy!
Back in the day, my dad had a certain supper specialty he’d lovingly whip up for me, my sister, and my mom. Hot dogs wrapped in a certain store bought crescent dough. Is anyone else out there nodding their head, sharing a similar memory? Classic, right?! Well, this recipe is my nod to those sweet memories, as well as to the satisfying smiles that come from an even tastier and healthier sourdough version.
We’re still mostly avoiding grains for gut and allergy issues. Yet we’re still eating pizza — thanks to this awesome cauliflower-based pizza crust. The first time I made it, my family and I both thought it probably wouldn’t be very good. Turns out that mild-flavored cauliflower dresses and flavors up very well into a pizza crust. Quite surprisingly, if I do say so myself. The flavor is actually awesome. Now it’s one of our favorite pizza crusts! And so let me share these mini grain-free cheese pizzas with you.
It’s hard to believe three years have passed since teaching the Sourdough eCourse with my dear friend Wardee. More surprising still, we continue to receive delectable and nourishing offerings almost daily from the same trusty sourdough starter in exchange for a simple daily feeding or two. I look at most recipes through the lens of sourdough, always wondering if I can up the nutrition and digestibility by including our sour little friend. Today’s recipe is a tasty example of one of my favorite remakes.
