Too Fat to Fit in the Airplane Seats, but I Came Here to Chiang Mai to EAT!!

Well, I made it to Chiang Mai this morning without incident…the first time in a while that I can remember. No lost luggage, delayed flights, obnoxious passengers, etc. Yay. It’s hot and I’m dripping with heat rashes all over. 86 degrees F, 30 degrees C and dry. So I’ll need to get used to...

What to do with all the soy yogurt I’ve been making? I mean, besides just eating it by the spoonful? Our 30-foot mango tree is still dropping a few mangoes every day, the very last of the season. However, from such a height, not much is left once they’ve hit the ground. So I...

Vegan Pineapple-Mint Sherbet was a Hit!

Vegan Pineapple-Mint Sherbet was a Hit!

Vegan Pineapple-Mint Sherbet

I wanted to develop a dessert for an upcoming dinner party. The rest of the dishes are fairly substantial, so I wanted the last course to be light. And with the heat we’ve been having lately, it also had to be refreshing. Something frozen came to mind immediately. We make a smoothie with pineapple...

Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar

Like peanut butter and jelly, apples and cinnamon, and milk and cookies, some pairings just seem made for each other. The combination of strawberries and balsamic vinegar is one of them.
