Grilled Leek Colcannon

Let's just say that I'm super-thankful I get to eat chocolate-banana protein smoothie with chocolate cereal for breakfast because I'm an adult and I can make my own choices.


I also saved a bunch of money on BLOG HOSTING! (I bet you thought I was going to say car insurance. Nope!)  I'm baaaaack with Blogger!  By transferring domain hosting and changing platforms, I'm back at the simpler space of Blogger.  Yes, this change broke every link and image in all almost 400 posts I've made since April 2011.  Yes, I just finished earlier this year finally reposting all of the 2012-2013 posts with pictures, heavily edited, and now I have to do all that over again.  It's all worth it, for saving twenty times what the hosting and platform change costs me now.

Cherimoya Muffins

I just finished watching The Neon Demon, and I had the same squeamish feeling while attempting to eat a cherimoya as I have just now.  Spoiler alert: The Neon Demon involves human blood ingestion.

Gothic Granola: Staying Warm While Vegan

Since this BlogSpot is still running, why not link to my existing blog anyway?  It's all about the backlinks!

Staying Warm while Vegan

...Without moving to a tropical climate.  I live in the Rocky Mountains at 9,000 feet above sea level and I like living here.  Even when it's 13 degrees Fahrenheit outside during the day and especially when it's snowing.

How to Season and Maintain Cast Iron Cookware

Cast iron pans: sign of a true DIY-er, in this day and age of convenience food and non-stick cookware.  Or a sign of someone who grew up in the Southern or Western United States.  Or the sign of a "foodie" poseur.

Aut facere aut mori | Spritz Cookies

Welcome back, all five of you who read GG: did you notice that things have changed?

The new motto is "aut facere aut mori," which I translate from Latin to English as "make or die" or "do or die."

Banana Cookies

If a recipe has a superlative adjective in the title, I raise my eyebrows.  Calling something the "best," "last you'll ever need," "fudgiest," etc., is a matter of opinion.



Crustuli delectamentissimus sunt.

That photo couldn't be more staged if I tried (and I tried to take a neat photo for once!).

Vegan and Gluten-Free Bread Machine Bread

Much like my sourdough recipes, this recipe's usefulness is limited by the equipment you have on hand.  However, you could very well make this outside of a bread machine.  For the first time in three years, I don't have a gas stove, and a countertop bread machine bakes better bread than an electric oven.



 

The bread machine doesn't warm the apartment like the oven does, though!

Vice Cream Cake

Ice cream cake is simple: cookie crumbles, ice cream, and syrup and/or preserves.



Remember when cookie used to be spelled "cooky?"  I wasn't alive then, but I read my mom's copy of Ginny's Baby-sitting Business (Catherine Woolley, 1969) in 2001, and there it was, "cooky" instead of cookie.

Corporate Wellness is Fun! And Potentially Dangerous!

Running with scissors is fun until you fall.

So is corporate wellness: it sounds like a tonne of fun, with stretch breaks on the clock, healthy snacks in the break room, employer-sponsored massages, health coaching, exercise classes...
