Simple Homemade Granola

Simple Homemade Granola | Foodinary

This weekend’s recipe is my simple homemade granola.  I used to always buy granola from the grocery store, but as I continue to strive toward a kitchen free of artificial ingredients, creating a delicious recipe of my own was must. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is pretty much as simple as it gets.  […]

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas | Foodinary

Healthy snacks can be tough.  I mean, one can only have so many sittings of carrots and hummus. Sometimes, you just really crave something crispy and salty, but you’re trying to stay away from the potato chips screaming your name from the pantry. But seeing as how it is January and many of us are […]

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad | Foodinary

Hello Friends! It has been a while since my last appearance here on Foodinary.  It has not been from a lack of cooking (or eating for that matter!) but from lack of passion for blogging.  I am a firm believer that if something isn’t bringing me joy, I would much rather focus my energies elsewhere. […]

Sugar Cookies with Peppermint Icing

Sugar Cookies with Peppermint Icing

There’s nothing quite like a cut-out sugar cookie in December.  I love the whole experience of cranking up Bing Crosby and Burl Ives on the radio, having a counter full of cookies, icing, and sprinkles, and the Christmas tree twinkling in the background. This year, I decided that I wanted to make all of my […]

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 […]

Black Cherry Ice Cream

Black Cherry Ice Cream | Foodinary

With Labor Day Weekend drawing near, the end of summer is sadly coming faster than I would like.  It only seems appropriate to celebrate with a treat that truly sums up a Michigan summer : Black Cherry Ice Cream. I made this Black Cherry Ice Cream “Philadelphia-Style” instead of in the “French-Style”.  When you make a […]

How to Make a Moscow Mule

How to Make a Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule has to be my favorite cocktail of 2015.  It has just 3 simple ingredients but packs a punch of flavor. The Moscow Mule became popular in the 1950s when Jack Morgan, owner of the Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant in Los Angeles, was trying to push more Ginger Beer.  Ginger Beer is not […]

The Best Homemade Pancakes

Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes

When I started to make pancakes this morning, I was halfway through mixing the batter when I discovered that I didn’t have any milk!  I have never made pancakes without milk before and haven’t heard of anyone else doing it either.  I was already too far into the mixture and craving pancakes to give up. […]

Zingy Lemon Bars

Zingy Lemon Bars

I often forget how much I enjoy Lemon Bars.  The zingy lemon filling on top of a crumbly shortbread crust is just delightful so it’s hard to believe the first printed recipe of this classic American dessert didn’t come about until 1963 by Betty Crocker. It’s not a dessert I make often, but it always […]

Kale and Melon Green Juice

Kale and Melon Green Juice

In this season of picnics and barbecues, it can be very easy to overeat.  Now don’t get me wrong, I adore eating ribs, burgers, brats, pasta salad, you name it – but sometimes it can leave you feeling a little stuffed.  After a weekend filled with this heavy but delicious fare I like to make […]
