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...

Once you start making your own vanilla extract you'll never go back to expensive grocery store options again! You might even be so thrilled you venture into making other extracts as well... orange spice, lemon drop, cool spearmint, the possibilities are near endless.

In this post, I'm going to show you how to make the easiest and most widely used extract, true vanilla extract. I've been making this extract for years. The type...

Barley is one of the most ancient grains still in existence, yet many have never tasted its toothsome goodness - except perhaps a handful of grains in a bowl of soup.

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!
