(We were trying to copy one we’d just had a smoothie place in IL.) We used (reduced fat) peanut butter and (low fat) frozen yogurt […]

My Favorite Weeds

It’s that time of year (depending upon where you live, this post could be a little early!) when my favorite weeds, Queen Anne’s lace and Wild Chicory, are popping up alongside of roads, in fields & generally anywhere there’s untended dirt.
