Rebels of Food

I love food. I mean, I really love how much can be done with food. You can eat a tomato raw or cook it, mash it, blend it, whatever. Same can be said for most veggies and fruits.  I also love people who are passionate about their foods as well. Hence, many food bloggers catch my attention. Whether I eat the same foods is irrelevant. I don't eat meat, but I can appreciate someone rendering lard at home. God Bless if you do that. I also love reading about paleo diets, gluten free diets, all meat diets, vegan diets, etc. They all have something for every single one of us to use or eat or maybe even agree on when it comes to wanting better foods or raising our own food. I do not always agree with the Dr. Oz's of this world, but that is because if I read or hear something, I will then embark on my path of information gathering to decide if I agree or disagree. Pretty easy, but not a lot of people do that. Plus I believe food can heal and help maintain health which is why I always bemoan having to be stuck going to a local supermarket for some things. If it is healthy you will pay an arm and a leg for it. I am also not a brand name buyer except for Organic Valley milk for the little one and Gorilla Munch. Other than that it is store brands all the way.

So, without further ado, here are some wonderful recipes I have found and wish to share. Happy eating!!

Easy Raspberry Chipotle Sauce from Food Renegade

Coconut Milk Yogurt from Gutsy.

Ozark Pear Cake from Tatelette. Seriously, this is just gorgeous.

Back to Food Renegade for Milk Substitutes.

The Blind Pig and the Acorn has a terrific use for apple peelings. Making apple jelly.

Have stale bread? Well, Veggie Belly has a superb way to use it up in this Bead Upma recipe. Oh my, I need to leave some bread out to go stale, NOW.

Mennonite Girls Can Cook have a lovely Brisket Chili recipe that can probably supply lunch and an extra dinner as well.

Over at The English Can Cook we see marmite used as a substitute for beef broth in French Onion Soup. C'est Bon!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.
Here is a stunning Craftsman Renovated home for sale in Bellevue, WA via Hooked on Houses.
I don't knit gloves or mittens, but these Podster Gloves


And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…
