Lately I’ve been going on a savory snack binge. I love to buy from the bulk bins at the store, a little bit of this and a little of that is much better than one bag of the same thing. I still have a sweet tooth but savory and spicy would be my first choice every time!Read More»
This is a bit of a how-to, educational kind of post. I don’t write too many, but I feel like this is an important one. Have you ever ordered scallops in a restaurant and they arrive at your table with a dark, crusty, caramelized top, almost like a creme brulee? Well if you didn’t get them like that, scratch that restaurant off your list because they must be having issues. Scallops are fantastic additions for all sorts of dishes, like pastas, risotto and stir fry’s, but they ain’t cheap and if you overcook them you should go to scallop JAIL!
OK, a bit dramatic. But you get my point.Read More»
There are many benefits to being a vendor in a farmer’s market. You can people watch, buy some awesome Toot Sweet Caramels (shameless plug inserted here) and be among some of the freshest, tastiest produce and food made available by local farmers and artisans.Read More»
When I sat down to write this post, I grabbed my box of brown rice Triscuits, baked with sweet potato and roasted sweet onion. I thought having them close by would channel my inner cracker and provide ample fodder to write about.
Well, it sort of worked, but made writing the post about an hour longer than it should have taken. I couldn’t stop dipping into the box and eating the crackers. There’s a new Triscuit in town, and it’s made with 100% whole grain brown rice, has no artificial flavors, and is packed with bits of sweet potato. They have two other flavors, too: Tomato and Sweet Basil and Savory Red Beans. Triscuit calls them “Real Foods,” and with only 130 calories for six good-sized crackers, I’d definitely add these to my pantry. When you look at the ingredient list you’ll notice that it’s pretty simple, so I carried that through just by adding some goat cheese, wildflower honey and fresh rosemary.
Simple, but easily the first appetizer plate to be finished…
A new take on an old favorite. Enjoy the new line of Triscuit baked with whole grain brown rice and wheat, some with real food ingredients like sweet potato or red beans.

I used to be a food service manager for a grocery store called Wild Oats. It was an all-natural store, so the ingredients and choices were always first class.Read More»
