Fall Tree

I know we’ve been using this tree for years, but it was one of the best things about my apartment complex in New Hampshire. Also, we don’t have fall colors yet in Seattle. Chill, yes, colors, no.

This week, I’ve two things for you. First up is a Sweet Potato & Black Bean Hash recipe, the concept of which I love. I am not sure I’d use a soup for this (see the recipe) because I tend to make my own black bean soup, but the concept is great.

Next up is a non-dairy milks review round-up. If you are new to non-dairy milks or want to switch up what you’re doing, this is a good place to start with one caveat: If you are corn-allergic or corn-sensitive, this may be less useful. These are commercially-produced milks and corn is everywhere. But if you’re nut-allergic, there are some good reviews of non-nut milks.

So remember the plastics in sea salt article I (Denise) posted last week? This week NPR has an article about plastics showing up in shellfish. Double Yay. 

I’m apparently all NPR this week, but I found this article interesting on the history of recipes in America because I’m a history major, but I also read older cookbooks in an attempt to find recipes without ingredients I can’t have. It’s kind of fascinating how ingredients and palates change. I made my own kind of old school recipe test this past week when I canned some Green Tomato Pie Filling (apples, green tomatoes, raisins and citrus zest, etc). I think it’s kinda sorta supposed to be like mincemeat, but I’ll let you all know how it is when I actually make it into a pie. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
