So, lets talk about salad, or more appropriately salad dressings. Not going to the store means you can’t always have your favorite bottle of ranch on hand and naked salad isn’t so great either.
I promised a vegetarian recipe and here it is. Unexpected and born out of necessity I was pretty pleased with how this turned out. This has been an unpredictable and crazy summer following the exact same kind of year. Don’t let the travel blogs fool you, there is lots going on and it has been
So the recipe is pretty much in the title but let me tell you about this anyway. It all started with a trip to Costco. Actually it didn’t, it all started when I accidentally found myself in the middle of a store that sold only olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I remember passing it

Straight up, there are no photos this time around. Some things, once seen cannot be unseen and I didn’t want any photo evidence. If you recall, back in my first post about the vinegar found here, I mentioned briefly that vinegar had a mother and that I had discovered the existence of a delightful little
Like many of my crazy ideas, this one started by random chance. I had a chance conversation with a colleague about her milk goats which got us talking about goat milk yogurt which got us talking about yogurt makers which somehow turned into sauerkraut and sauerkraut fermentation crocks which ended up with her offer to
Well hello there world, time for a new blog and some new adventures. I’d like to invite you to join me as I undertake what I’ve aptly called “The Fermentation Project”. It’s exactly what it sounds like, I’m going to see if I can figure out the magical world of cooking by microbe (doesn’t that
