It’s the beginning of the month, which means it’s also time for a new SOS Kitchen Challenge ingredient reveal! Your posts last month all […]
SOS Kitchen Challenge
Autumn Fruit Crumble
I grew up in a home where my two sisters and I learned to bake before our birthdays hit the double digits. Before we learned to read, before we wore a training bra, before we could drive a car, we were baking. As young as four or five, we’d be enlisted to help stir a […]

SOS Carob: Carob Refrigerator Cookies
I hope everyone had (or is still having) a great Mother’s Day today! Behold what I found on the mantelpiece this morning: Yep, for the first time ever, this year I received a card from The Girls. I guess that hinting cajoling begging having temper tantrums being a loving partner all year really paid off! 😉 […]
SOS Kitchen Challenge for May: Ingredient Reveal–and Anniversary Giveaway!
Welcome to another month and another round of the SOS Kitchen Challenge! After posting April’s roundup, Kim and I realized that the SOS Kitchen Challenge is now a year old.

Well, I’m thrilled to report that several of you rose to the challenge quite admirably! The asparagus recipes flowed in all month, […]
Shaved Asparagus Salad and Lemon Poppyseed Bars
[Raw Frosted Lemon-Poppyseed Bars–heavenly!] Whew–where has the last week gone? Between end-of-term marking and a long holiday weekend, it’s been pretty busy here in the DDD household. I hope you all enjoyed a stellar Passover and/or Easter holiday! This year, the HH and I celebrated both holidays, first with friends (we were invited to two seders this year) and […]
*Or, would a Synstylae smell sweeter? [If you’re looking for an easy yet impressive side dish, this is it! Andalusian Asparagus is vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg free, soy-free, yeast-free, and low glycemic. Suitable for Stage 3 and beyond on an anti-candida diet.] A couple of days ago I was sent a tweet by someone who had noticed […]
SOS April Ingredient Reveal!
It’s April–which means the cruelest month love is in the air another SOS Kitchen Challenge! This month, with so many of us thinking about spring and green shoots finally making their way toward the sky, Kim and I have chosen an ingredient that is itself a harbinger of spring. With its lively green hue and […]

Here it is again, the start of another month. That means it is also the end of another SOS Kitchen Challenge (and I’m not foolin’!). 😉 In March, Kim and I featured none other than the delicious and nutritious adzuki bean. Our readers were inspired by both the sweet and savory possibilities, and delivered a multitude of […]
