in crockpot recipe, fruit, gluten free, vegan

Ahhhh! How glorious to wake up smelling roses – thanks again Phil and Joanna!


We walked into Larchmont this morning. Picked up some 1/2 off Cornbread Muffins from BabyCakes


…then swung by the Larchmont Farmer’s Market – Abe was inspired by a recipe I posted on T.A.D.’s Facebook page and requested cauliflower


(Noshed on a whole bunch of fruit samples too)

Back home, I decided to clear some room for our fresh, new produce – too many of these guys sitting on the counter…


…I never have the patience to make Caramelized Onions, but my crockpot does!

There are lots of recipes on how to do this online – most of them require anywhere from 8-12 hours on low; I am living dangerously and setting mine on high, because I can’t wait til 11pm for dinner!


Also veganizing my version with coconut oil – will post the recipe later if the experiment goes well!!!


It’s only been a few hours, but the house already reeks of onion – sorry, flowers!



I escaped the stink by reading on the porch. Look what’s in the latest issue of KoreAm – an entire article on Asian Fit Glasses, which I never even heard of last week:


(Check out who’s on page 48 too!)


What does your place usually smell like? I remember growing up how remarkably pungent other people’s houses were to me – my piano teacher’s was like Murphy’s Soap, my babysitter’s was like melted American Cheese…it seems like most homes I visit now don’t have any fragrance – did my sense of smell die or did people stop cleaning/cooking?!?
