Previously, on “Foodie, Formerly Fat”… I was discussing the end of this summer’s love affair between peaches and me. After the brilliance of the frozen yogurt I was down to the two final peaches waving to me from the peach bowl. Not enough to make much I thought and I was sorely tempted just to […]

Last week on the blog’s Facebook page I mentioned that I was looking at the last of my peaches from the farmer’s market. All summer long I happily bought a quart of peaches at the farmer’s market once or twice a week. Then, about three weeks ago the boys from the farm told me it […]
I’ll be honest, I have no idea what a cobbler really is. It seems that there are a whole bunch of similar types of desserts called cobblers, buckles, brown Bettys, crumbles, crisps, and grunts. The common thread seems to be some sort of cake bottom, fruit middle, and crumble topping. I made my own out […]
It was my birthday last week and this is the exchange I had with my 3 year old son on the morning of my birthday: Andy: Happy birthday mommy, I love you. Me: Thank you, Andy. I love you too. Andy: I want some of your cake. Me: What cake? It’s 9am, there’s no cake. […]

I’ve been on a lime kick this summer. The abundance of key limes and key lime juice in the grocery store has been pretty alluring. My love for sweet lemon has a close second which is a love for sweet lime. This recipe really delivers.
To say that this was a project would be something of an understatement. And, I’ll be honest with you, I’m not sure I would do it again… at least not like the way I did this time. See, my kids finished at school this past June and they are moving on to a new school […]
This may be the single simplest salad imaginable. I got the idea for it, from, of all things, one of Beverly Clearly’s Ramona Quimby books. (Evelyn and I have been reading these lately.)
This ice-cream was entirely momentum based. What I mean by that is that I was on a roll making ice-cream (5 batches in an afternoon!) and when the strawberry ice-cream came out so fantastically I started searching for more fruit that was hanging out in the fridge to use in a similar fashion. When I […]
