Having a mid-week crisis? Lavender calms and soothes you in this small lemon chocolate chip cookie. They are certainly getting me through this after Labor Day funk. I hope they help you too. You may not notice that there’s avocado in these cake-like cookies. But it’s standing in for the typical oil.  Avocados are cool like that!

Strawberry Basil Mini Donuts

Strawberry Basil Mini Donuts

Lucky for me the first strawberries of the year already showed up at the farmers market and made their way into these bold donuts.  The next batch I’m getting is to going to be made into some strawberry vodka for a few herb cocktails on the deck. I love Spring!

Spring came months ago it seems. The bad part is there are already mosquitos trying to sneak into the house, in fact one is actually nibbling me now. But the best part if that some of my fresh herbs are ready to use again and that more than makes up for my blood loss.

These were my second batch of donuts and they are bursting with lemony goodness. The lemon extract has less of a bite than plain lemon juice, so I like using the two together. The lemon cream cheese frosting adds more sweetness but also a bit of richness to the bright flavor of the lemon donut. You […]

All I need is a few days in the 60s to be ready for Spring. A few days in the 80s and then I don’t want to go back! The weather here in NC obviously doesn’t share my opinion. It’s been cold and rainy  - I even had to scrape ice off my car the […]

 Ok, before you get the wrong idea there is no tequila in this oatmeal. Even on my worst days I would not bring in alcoholic oatmeal to work. But it is Monday and the first work day after daylight savings time is always a little tough for me. So I thought I’d start my […]

It’s been unseasonably warm most days here in Durham. That’s got me thinking about gardening and cocktail parties on my deck. Of course, then comes the day it’s 40 degrees again and it make me a little sad and disappointed. This oatmeal adds a burst of sunshine into any cold, cloudy day. If you don’t […]
