Recipe: Farmer’s Market Sandwich on Fresh Ciabatta Bread

Yesterday when Zack and I were at the farmer’s market buying most of our food for the week, the fresh baked bread guy gave us two loaves of ciabatta bread for free! We got way excited and ran home to make sandwiches right away. We didn’t have much food at home other than the produce […]

How To: Homemade Brazil Nut Milk

In the last five years or so, I’ve really slowed down my consumption of store bought nut and seed milk. I used to buy it all the time and drink it daily, but those days are long gone. Now I’ll keep a small container of it in the fridge in case I need to bake […]
