Cooking is fun. Eating is funner. I cook, photograph and write these recipes.
Everything I post on this blog I make from scratch using fresh wholesome ingredients.. I've been cooking since I was a little kid.

My recipes are based on trial and error, along with studying cookbooks, family recipes, blogs and cooking shows.

Some of the veggies and herbs I use are grown in my garden. Yay sustainability!
I'm working on making my yard into an edible landscape. It's really fun to go out in the garden and pick your veggies for dinner!
I'm helping as many people as I can to plant edible gardens in their yards too. It's hard work but it's really fun!

    Meyer Lemon and Fennel Pickles

    We made these the week before Christmas. I never got a photo of the finished jars, but I thought they looked pretty sweet.

    These were really delicious! I thought of these because we have a Meyer Lemon tree in the back yard growing near the fennel plants, which are in pots. I decided to put the two together and see how it would taste.

    I turned out to be a very fresh, lemony, slightly anise-y pickle. I tried to keep the ingredients white or light so that the yellow of the Meyer lemons would really stand out.

    These jars contain blanched chopped fennel, meyer lemon slices, organic white vinegar, salt, white pepper, fennel seeds and honey. I processed them in a hot water canner for appx 15 minutes. Keeps in the refrigerator for about 1 or 2 months.
