Ushering in Spring: Swedish Pancakes with Lemon




"The best things in life are nearest:  Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson

So here we are in the midst of April, and I hope wherever you are the snow has melted and spring is in the air. We are getting another dump of the white, fluffy stuff today, but in a day or two it will all be forgotten as the temperatures rise and melt away the last dregs of winter. It has been a long, suffering one, has it not? I can't wait to trade in my lace up winter boots for footwear that requires less effort to put on. I know. So lazy of me! I've been wearing the same boots for 6 friggin months. Time to switch it up, right?

Honey Chipotle Roasted Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa



This is a sponsored post. I was compensated financially to write about California Cling 
Peaches. All opinions, thoughts, feelings about canned peaches are my very own.

My Instagram feed is currently flooded with folks frolicking on tropical beaches, 
and I have to admit I’m a little jealous. Clad in slippers and wool, I stare out onto a 
snow-covered front yard, and the only things frolicking are the brave birds, happily 
eating up the food I put out for them. How I wish I could trade in my boots for sandals, 
my shower for a swim-up bar, and the snow for some sand. And, everyone seems to 
be eating tacos on their tropical vacations, which makes me crave the sun and the 
beach even more. Seeing as I can’t transport myself to a place where the cold doesn’t 
hurt my face, I made my own fish tacos with a delicious peach salsa and pretend 
there isn’t another month of winter left.

California Dreaming: Roasted Peach and Ricotta Focaccia



This is a sponsored post. I was compensated financially to write about California Cling Peaches. 
All opinions, thoughts, feelings about canned peaches are my very own.

With summer months and months away, this is the time of year when I start to daydream about 
wearing flip flops, eating burgers outside in the shade and hearing thunder rumble off into the 
distance. Alas, my reality is feet in slippers, stew for supper and freezing rain being the crazy 
menace that it is. Oh, a girl can dream. When it comes to eating fruit, California Cling Peaches 
bring me a little taste of summer in the dead of winter. Easy to find on the store shelves, 
and affordable as all heck, canned peaches have no preservatives and according to a study 
by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, canned peaches are higher in 
antioxidants and Vitamin A and are nearly four times higher in Vitamin C and 10 times higher 
in folate than fresh peaches. Healthy and tasty, I love opening a can of these beauties.

A New Year & a New Kitchen Toy: Roasted Beet Hummus



Disclosure:  Cuisinart sent me this lovely food processor free of charge.  All opinions about it are my own.  

Happy New Year, dear friends.  I hope you all survived the holidays relatively unscathed.  I'm super glad they are over, and now we can carry on with everyday life.  Keep in mind that my everyday life still involves cookies and cakes, but also plenty of vegetables and pulses.  It's all about the balance, you know.
