Recipe Thursday: Rhabarberkuchen

Translated: Rhubarb Cake!! But it’s more exciting if you take it into consideration of the German ‘kuchen’ time, which is essentially high tea or afternoon cake and coffee. Many years ago now, my lovely friend Vanessa took me as her date to a wedding in Germany for her International Exchange friend that she met inContinue reading “Recipe Thursday: Rhabarberkuchen”

Recipe Thursday: Bread Book – Harold

The simplicity of Harold. Who is he? He’s not our in-house-special-chef. He’s not our cooking mentor or even family member, though he’s a bit of the latter.

I love wild greens, garden greens, all especially as bitter greens. But it’s still also pretty cool, and though I will certainly pair aContinue reading “Recipe Thursday: Bread Book – Moroccan Greens Dip”

Recipe Thursday: Froot Crisp (GF)

You read that right – that’s how we spell it around here. Why? ’cause it’s funnier that way, that’s why. Homeskooling is hilarious because you really get to not only see the ridiculousness of some of our learning systems but you also get to mess with your kids…take spelling, for instance – many words areContinue reading “Recipe Thursday: Froot Crisp (GF)”
