Microwave Bowl Potholders

Don't you hate it when you microwave something and it is too hot to handle? Well, I'm all smitten over microwave bowl potholders. And no more burned finger tips.  

They're reversible.  

This one is made in a vintage camera print and rolls of film on the reverse sides.  

This one has healthy eating messages on this side.  

And ears of corn printed on the reverse side. They're made out of 100% cotton (quilting fabric weight), two layers of 100% natural cotton wrap and zap (trademark) batting, and 100% cotton thread. If you're interested in one of your very own, you can pick them up over at my Etsy shop.  

Happy and safe eating!

Summer-time Crisp

Today marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and the start of crisp season. Now, I don't typically find peaches this early in the season and have been enjoying this little treat. This evening it was used in a summer-time crisp.

Along with peaches I threw in a few gala apple slices and organic blueberries. For the topping I mixed gluten-free organic whole oats, almond flour, Cloud 9 gluten-free all-purpose flour, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon.  I usually drizzle amaretto onto of my crisps but today I thought to keep it simple. There is plenty of time for amaretto infused crisps this season.

Happy Eats!

Bye-bye Mayo!

I picked up a copy of Ana Patuleia Ortins' latest cookbook Authentic Portuguese Cooking the other day and there are so many recipes in this book that I want to try. This evening for dinner I made Salada de Atum à Moda da Graciosa (Tuna Salad Graciosa Style). If you have the cookbook, the recipe is found on page 204.  

Oh my goodness, it is delicious! I'm never mixing mayo with tuna again.  

Happy Eats!
