Carrot and Walnut Muffins

Carrot Walnut Muffins | Foodinary

This past weekend I saw a roadside farmer’s stand selling humungous bags of carrots.  There is no possible way I could have ever hoped to make enough baked goods, juice, and salads in time to use up all of those carrots before they went bad so I opted out.   However, I did feel inspired […]

Back To Basics: Bread


What do you do when you’re stressed and feeling down? Run? Call your best friend? Make Lists? I bake bread. The whole bread making process is very calming to me.  I never quite understood why… Not until I sat down to write this post. Making bread is all about patience.  I mean the starter alone […]

What to do with an Empty Fridge


Do you ever have those days when you open the refrigerator only to find it darn near empty? That happened at lunchtime today. I live with 5 other girls so there is always something in our fridge, but after some digging, I discovered that the only food to my name was a little bit of […]
