Enough Rain Already!

Enough Rain Already! Did I just say that? It’s been raining for days, weeks now. This “atmospheric river” hitting California has been unrelenting. And it’s pouring now. Pouring! After eight years of drought, I know I can’t complain, but this is ridiculous! In fact, it was reported yesterday that severely depleted reservoirs in California are filling […]

The title is a mouthful and so were the muffins! I had picked up a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Paleo baking flour a few days ago, and these turned out very tasty! (I see they are out of stock, so it must be a popular item.) Gluten-free, grain-free, bean-free. They have a muffin recipe […]

Here’s my Sweet Potato Leek Cream Soup Recipe! This soup is embarrassingly simple and sweetly delicious. I had ordered purple flesh sweet potatoes from my farm box, and leeks. I’ve made this potato leek soup for 20 years or more, but had never tried it with sweet potatoes.

Happy New Year and my Robert Redford Moment

In 2011, our family was flying back from Salt Lake City early morning after an enjoyable Christmas ski trip in Park City, Utah. We had managed to get first-class seats, but in the small jets that make the short flight to Los Angeles, that only meant we were in the front of the plane. There were four seats […]

Consider the Vlog at 50, actually 51. From my first vlog, shot, edited and uploaded from my iPhone on March 19th this year in Vancouver, British Columbia, to my “Giving Thanks” published just before Thanksgiving, I’ve made 51 video logs this year (not counting the 2-parter ready to upload tomorrow). Add the “Late Bloomer” episodes and […]
