Canning Peach Slices

This was our first year canning peaches, and it couldn’t have been easier. The peaches have held their sweetness, shape, and texture quite well, much to my husband’s delight, as peaches are his favorite fruit . . . This recipe is easy, and creates a light syrup that does not overwhelm the peaches’ natural flavor.  READ

Quinoa & Vegetable Egg Rolls


This recipe for DIY egg rolls is super simple, and really delicious. It only take a few minutes to prepare and roll, and maybe 2-minutes absolute tops to cook them. But you can add any filling you want to your egg rolls or wontons. READ


Strawberry Preserves


Making your own strawberry preserves is easy, and really worth the time! This recipe for homemade preserves is everything you want in a jam – sweet and warming while still accenting the strawberries’ natural freshness! READ

Peach & Blueberry Breakfast Crisp


This wonderful recipe is for a breakfast-style crisp, as this recipe isn’t very sweet the way a dessert crisp or cobbler would be. The fruit is fresh, and the topping has a hint of sweet, while still being reminiscent of a nice granola. We ate ours on its own, but it would be delicious with a yogurt of your choice (we enjoy the almond or soy milk based yogurts), or a scoop of almond milk ice cream for a not-too-sweet dessert! READ
