It’s summertime again, and that means my friend’s mom has currant bushes that are overflowing with fruit. This year, she taught me how to juice them using a pressure cooker, but then I was stuck with far more currant juice than I knew what to do with. I still had jelly from last year, as

My friend Gauri and I were talking the other day and, as usual, we got on the subject of food. We haven’t been able to see one another in about a year, so we took advantage of technology and had ourselves a little long-distance lunch date via video chat. I happened to have the ingredients

This post goes out to anyone who has to deal with the woes of having a uterus, because regardless of how you present, periods don’t discriminate. Today, in lieu of a traditional recipe, I’m going to delve into the unusual world of period-taming teas. *** Before we get started, let me be completely transparent about

This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

This is one of the more complicated recipes I’ve ventured to do. Anyone who’s been following Apartment Eats for a while knows I’m generally a cupcake person. I’ve tried making pies before with varied success, and I’ve never, ever made a full cake. Hubby actually gave me a straight answer for once when I asked

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, savory, and spicy, you’re going to love this set-it-and-forget-it jambalaya. The prep involves a lot of chopping and dicing, but if you put on a little music, it goes by in no time. My recommendation? The band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It really sets the tone (and

Sounds weird, right? That was what I thought when my friend first mentioned it the other day. Blueberry soup is apparently quite common in Sweden, where my friend is from, and she said that it’s often used as a cold remedy, much like how we use chicken soup as a “cure-all” here in America for

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave
