Dieting isn't easy. Cooking healthy can be.
This recipe is over 300 years old! I found it in an old cookbook and cherish it dearly. Bear in mind this is a very dense, very rustic loaf, and creates a very hard crust. But it is fun for an authentic Irish treat. Because of the recipes age, all of the rising comes from the buttermilk, rather than bread soda (baking soda). If you prefer a lighter loaf, you may add 1 t. of bread soda to the dry ingredients.
This is a healthy favorite smoothie with strawberry and banana flavors.
My wife does not like peanut butter, nuts, some dried fruits, or chocolate chips, so I have had to modify my recipe so she could take these tasty and healthy snack bars to work.

I have boiled, roasted and grilled more tomatoes, peppers and garlic trying to find the perfect salsa I get my favorite Mexican restaurant. While I came up with some pretty good salsas, this is finally it. The color and consistency tipped me off as to where I was going astray. And while I had to move away from the fresh tomatoes, it was worth it.
Unbleached flour and no processed sugars yield a great tasting bread that's easy to prepare. I fill a baking pan with 1 inch of hot water and place the pan on the floor of oven, with oven set on lowest setting, while I am mixing the ingredients, then when dough is ready to rise, I turn off the heat and put bowl of dough inside oven to rise.

This is the most wonderful ceviche ever. It is thick enough to be eaten as a meal and it is the only recipe I have found that kid's enjoy.
