Sourdough Crackers #Sourdough Discard

You may have seen the crackers. You might want the crackers. I just wanted to share here the recipe that I referenced. I did add onion and garlic powder as well as Italian seasoning. Because not all my butter was quite room temp, I substituted 2 T olive oil. Roll them too thick and they’ll…

Roasted Carrot and Spice Soup

This isolation situation we find ourselves in has warranted a new life for us all. It’s afforded me time to try some new recipes and new experiences. Last night, I had a blast cooking with the Culture New Norm family on IGTV and we made this simple soup that pays you back much more than…

Banana Ice!

Hello! It feels good to be back. And it’s nice to have you. (If you’re here just for the recipe, feel free to scroll. You shouldn’t have to scroll too far.) I hope you’re doing well and taking your health and the health of others seriously. Nonetheless, thanks to the slower pace, I’ve gotten a…

#WhatTheCookie

I hope you’ve had a merry Christ mas and are shaping up for a sweet new year. You and I have been through quite a bit this year and I hope you’ve learned at least as much as I have. There’s plenty I look forward to chatting with you about. Among those has been a…

#JustRollWithIt: Deluxe Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

I’m not a big fan of those links to recipes that make you scroll through 5 paragraphs to get to a recipe. So I’ll just make you scroll through 1. Below is a cinnamon roll recipe that I’ve adapted from one I found via an image search (the way I start most searches). Led me…

Airbnb Glazed Carrots #Kitchenlessness The #kitchenlessness is getting real…and old. I ended up in an Airbnb reservation on Thanksgiving but found a dinner to crash. And thought I’d bring a side. Mac’n’Cheese was missing from the menu but I had my qualms about shopping and producing on time in a kitchen that wasn’t my own….

Meatless Fridge

Some like the Meatless Monday’s, some have health problems, some have diet preferences, and some will soon be declaring New Years resolutions. Me? I just need to go shopping. In the meantime, did lil search for some meatless motivation and there were many suggestions but those peppers L👀K  pretty good. What you thinkin? “So how…

Fightin’ Words #ThankInJapan

The house fills with the warmest aroma of the fruit of the cacao pod, gushing forth from the opened oven door. The amalgamous cluster of cookie dough- the richest of butters, the finest of flours, the sweetest of sugars- oozing forth from the deep chocolate oases, speckled with the salt left behind by the vanishing…

Catching Up #ThankInJapan

As life get’s louder the Tip of the Tongue seems a bit quieter. I wanted to at least say hello before my Saturday was completely over. Spent the day catching a breath, taking an overdue stroll in the evening after staying in the house all day, the rain flapping its tongue at me. I thought…

Fireworks

I must admit, I haven’t been out for a burger since last week’s post. This post from 4 4ths ago (originally written July of 2013) doesn’t make it any better as it only intensifies the burger appetite but its a delectable read and its full of great info and burger stories that should hold you…

What’s Cookin? Beet It!

Just stopping in to celebrate one of my favorite vegetables. Beets!  I don’t see too many in Japan- or in the Navy now that I think about it, not to say they aren’t there. But I’m in Georgia and one of the things I actually do like about Georgia is the Dekalb Farmers Market– where…

Left Behind: Pancake Breakfast

I didn’t abandon you or my Soul Food Tour of Japan.  One of the greatest paradoxes of life is that death is part of life. Tomorrow is promised to none of us. My dad, Robert Flowers, passed away two weeks ago, but he left his family behind with more than funeral arrangements. He left us…
