First and foremost: Sorry about the hiatus. I’ve been battling some mental health struggles and working myself to the bone trying to finish my backyard landscaping in time to get my onions, beans, peas, etc. in the ground in time. I’m still here! I just miscalculated how much of a backlog of posts I had

This is another recipe originally from King Arthur Flour. I modified it based on what I had around the house at the time, and the end result was a delicious batch of muffins just sweet enough to enjoy without feeling like you’re starting your day with a load of sugar. These would make great giant

As some of you may recall (and as many others will likely not be surprised to find out), I’ve posted about banana bread before. In fact, I’ve got a few banana bread items: Vegan Banana Nut Muffins, Dessert Banana Bread, and Banana Pumpkin Bread. What I haven’t done is plain ol’ banana bread. Sure, this

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
