Back to the basics with my blog, our food, life in general, and Enjoying this Journey...

Pomegranate Molasses is one of those kitchen "staples" that sometimes slips my mind.

When I think to add pomegranate molasses to a recipe, I lament the fact that I don’t have any made! In the coming days, I’ll share a couple recipes that also feature this delicious fruity molasses.

Luv has her own little point and shoot camera.

I love when she comes to me and announces that her memory card is full. That’s when I truly get to see the world from a child’s eyes. Many blurry shots, but all beautiful and important to her. And that is what matters.

Around this time of year, what seems like another lifetime ago, I was braiding challah crowns embedded with dried cranberries, with tzimmes stewing away in the oven, and we dipped our autumn apples in honey. Everything was so sweet!

When I found myself with the sudden urge to make tzimmes again, I couldn’t help but smile. Of course, this time around I’d have to tweak my old recipe quite a bit to tone down the sweetness.

Not So Sweet Tzimmes

Let's have one last frozen treat hoorah! Grab your spoons and make room in your freezer.

The temperature is still in the 80s where I live. While I admit, I am ready to bring my autumn sweaters and boots out, but I’m always down for a frozen treat! Of course, if the temperatures are already dropping where you live, you can squirrel away this roundup post for next year. *wink*

I’ve gathered some of the tastiest frozen treats in the autoimmune protocol blogosphere!

We're dragonfruit noobies.

Until recently I had never had dragonfruit. Let alone purchased it. It’s probably one of the most curious looking fruits I’ve seen! The color is magnificent and the inside is not what I expected.

Dragon Fruit Sorbet

Luv was especially curious about this fruit. I asked what color she would guess the inside is…

“Pink, like the outside.”

I slowly sliced, careful to keep it hidden as her neck craned towards me to try and sneak a peek…

This sorbet might surprise you!

Sometimes I’ll see a recipe and think, what the…? Curiosity usually gets the best of me and I have to try it for myself.

The only thing better than peaches is ginger with peaches.
