Ice Latte Drip

Oooo! Coffee! I drink it every morning and in the summer I hate having to drink the hot brewed coffee. I borrowed my sister-in-law’s brother‘s Toddy Coffee Maker. I drank amazing iced lattes all week! This thing makes super condensed cold-brewed coffee that I then just mixed with ice and milk and BAM. Iced latte that didn’t cost $4!

Curried Sweet Potato and Lentil Pan

So I made this dish. It has sweet potatoes and lentils, that I know. Definitely a lot of spices too… I cooked this weeks ago people. I used this recipe! You should save this and make it this fall, or maybe on some bizarrely cold summer evening.  That’s all I’ve got. I’m not even posting the recipe (beyond the link) because I have no idea how I changed it. Oops!


Plum and Apple Crisp July 6, 2009

Plum and Apple Crisp Toaster Oven

My favorite desserts tend to be fruit based and easy to through together. Not a lot of measuring or planning ahead. Fruit crisps fit this description perfectly. I got 10 plums for 1 dollar at the store and got tired of just eating them as a snack. I figured the plums would be over powering if I made a crisp with just them, so I added in some apple to mellow it out. Turned out very well and made 6 individual sized desserts!

Plum and Apple Crisp1

  • 6 small plums – diced
  • 2 apples – peeled and diced
  • 1/2 C. flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/2 C. oats
  • 4 T. brown sugar
  • Salt
  • butter (I used about half a stick, but you could probably use more)

Dice up the apples and plums and portion off into the dishes. Mix in a pint or two of brown sugar into the fruit and a little bit of salt as well. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar and salt (1 tsp.). Then use a fork to mash in the butter. Top each dish with this mixture and put a little extra butter right on top if you want to make it more crispy. Bake in an over at 350 for about 15 minutes, or a toaster oven at 350 for a bit longer (maybe 20 or so). Enjoy with ice cream!

Notes: I never use a recipe for this. It changes everytime based on what fruit I have. I also don’t actually measure the oats or flour. Ooops. I’m not a baker.

Servings: 6 dishes.
