We’re so glad you’re here! If you’ve been with us for a long time, thank you for sticking around while we reorganized and developed a new direction. If you’re new, we hope you’ll sign up for email notifications, or simply click on the “Follow” button for facebook notifications of new posts, or RSS feeds to get them in your reader.
We love experimenting in our kitchens and we love eating what we create! We don’t want to give up all the foods we’ve spent our entire lives tweaking and perfecting, but we do need to change them up to make them healthier without losing all the wonderful flavors. To that end, “whatever happens in our house usually happens in the kitchen” has morphed into “Traditional Recipes Updated for the 21st Century.” Look for a variety of 6 or more new recipes per month. We hope you’ll like what you see and enjoy the brief stories and anecdotes that prompt us to cook or bake what we do.
In the right bar you’ll find a link to our new section, Chicklets in the Garden, on urban gardening and backyard wild edibles. Stay tuned for articles and images we hope will inspire you to dig in the dirt and grow something good to eat.
In the new category drop down menu, you’ll find tried and true original old recipes under Traditional. Gluten-free and Vegetarian have new sub-cats along with the new Low Fat, Low Calorie, Low Carb, and Vegan.
We can’t guarantee that all the recipes will be significantly healthier or that nutrition information will be provided, but we hope you’ll give them a try or twist them up to make them perfect for you. We’d love for you to share your ideas with us and hopefully we’ll all become healthy and happy along the way!
