Scottish Thistle Shortbread Pans

Scottish Thistle Shortbread Pans

Recently, I was lucky enough to find a great little Scottish thistle shortbread pan in our local thrift shop. Shortbread recipes go back to medieval times, when bakers would have leftover dough from making bread. They would place it in a slow oven to harden. Eventually, yeast was omitted from the bread recipe and replaced by butter and sugar, forming the Scottish delight known as "shortbread". Try my recipe for Almond Shortbread and Buttermilk Scones as well!

Our New Fire Pit

Vegetarians can enjoy a barbecue grill, cook-out, or fire pit party just as much as anyone else. My daughter and I made a fire pit from a bed of gravel, a ring of rocks and a removable steel grill. Here we roasted tofu, butternut squash and potatoes. My next cook-out will feature marinated/grilled Homemade Tempeh.

Simple Orange Water Quenches Thirst

Orange Water

On a hot summer day, there is nothing more refreshing than a pitcher of iced water with slices of oranges, lime, or lemon floating inside. Slice the fruit thinly, leaving the washed rinds on, and for best results allow the fruited water to chill an hour or more before icing it and serving. Another treat is cucumber water, made in the same way. No need for sugary drinks! You and your guests will love these simple thirst quenchers. (Thanks and credit to my friend, April, for this great idea!)

California Poppies

California Poppies

In Southern California at this time of year, we are blessed with lovely wild poppies. They are tucked away in divots and drains, in corners and crevices. In our little yard, their golden-orange petals can be seen peeking out from nests of silvery green fronds. Do you have a favorite wild flower in your part of the world?
