Julia Kiene, LOVED mixes–instant this and instant that–and I love those things too. But, sometimes you want to skip the mix, crack open a baking powder, get GF flour all over your kitchen, find your hand mixer from the 60s, and make something from scratch. The problem for me with that is Julia Kiene didn’t do a whole lot of scratch. All of her scratch at least in The Step-by-Step Cook Book for Boys and Girls is cookies and frosting– there are seven cookie recipes, and ten frosting recipes and the whole book is about as thick as your pinky finger.
Mangos. Something so mushy, sweet, and wonderful it makes you think of summer, right? I think of Spring, that wet, mushy, yet, sweet and beautiful time of year. In honor of Spring I dug up my old Olympus camera and cleaned it out finding some great photos of my mom and me making Mango chutney. we did some simple things with the chutney–like putting it on a porkchop, and some smoothy recipes.This post is all about the smoothie/smoothy.
