Raise yo' hand if you think dips, sauces and dressings are THE BOMB [cyclone, diggety, dope...]!

Ready to get your crunch on? My friend Brynn McDowell, aka The Domestic Dietitian made a little video a while back on how to make these fantastic-looking crackers with just three ingredients and five minutes: whole grain lavash bread, extra virgin olive oil and spices. I've been dying to make these ever since.

THREE times I've put whole grain lavash bread on the shopping list... and THREE times it has been eaten before...

Hands-down, this brilliant purply-pink sauerkraut is my all-time FAVORITE! Just look at that GORGEOUS color... and yes, after the lacto-fermentation process it really does turn this beautiful shade of magenta. It never would have occurred to me to ferment red cabbage if I had not tasted some at the farmer's market in Kennebunk, ME last fall.

As with grocery stores, one should never go to the farmer's market HUNGRY! I swear, I...

Fresh ginger + fresh lime + yellow and white carrot spirals + salt + time = LOVE! If you've been gifted a zoodle maker over the holidays and are curious about makin' your own lacto-fermented vegetables, I'm thrilled you stopped by! I've got the perfect combination to get you started. 

Ginger added to any citrus is spectacular in my book. It seems to lend itself particular well to fermented foods and beverages. After some diggi...

I'm not sure I can recall another time when we needed to shovel a foot and a half of snow already by mid-November! Ya think if we get a heap of snow on the front end of the season we'll have an early spring? I've given up trying to predict New England weather, but I do know all this cold weather makes me crave carbs. And guess what my friends, that's not always a bad thing!

Carbs, just like fat in previous years, have unfairly...
