In The Veggie-Light: Sunchokes

Here we are again; in the land of delicious, seasonal vegetables! Sunchokes are definitely not commonly used, at least not where I’m from, and I actually hadn’t heard of one until a few weeks ago. I’ve gathered a few recipes for you, as I do, and all of them make me glad that I know of the vegetable.

Fruits of Winter

Usually when you think of winter foods, fresh fruit isn’t exactly the first thing to pop into your mind. Cold weather tends to put the kibosh on a lot of the fresh, seasonal fruits that grace our tables and restaurant menus when the weather is warmer… Fortunately for all you fresh food lovers out there, wintertime has its own crop of delicious fruits for the picking!

Colors Colors Everywhere

For a long time my wardrobe, and my life, was filled with a lot of monochrome. Why add to your gloomy January day by wearing a black shirt, surrounded by white walls? Let’s inject a little color into our lives!

Eat Your Winter Veggies!

In the U.S. where so many vegetables and fruits can be found all year round, it’s easy to forget that these foods actually have seasons, for the most part. Since I don’t want to show you the usual suspects (Broccoli!), I thought I’d share a few vegetables with you that you may never have heard of or seen!

Breads To Hibernate With

If you’re like me, you’re a bear and hibernation is… no, wait, that’s not right. Let me try again: If you’re like me, you love bread and you’d love for your home to be filled with the scent of freshly baked something-or-other. I don’t have a bread machine, myself, so I’ve looked around the internet to try and find some tasty sounding recipes that will be easy for anyone to throw together!
