A baked loaf on a cooling rack.

Healthy Apple Oatmeal Breakfast LoafThis uses whole wheat flour, oats ground to flour, coconut oil and very little sugar. I omitted the topping to save further on calories. It is delicious without it.

Mango Buttercream CakeMango is a very common fruit in my place. Our favorite delicacy that's made of mangoes is the dried ones and green mangoes with shrimp paste. This time, I'm going to share my newly learned sponge cake with ripe mango filling and mango buttercream.


Meatballs in French onion sauce.

French Onion MeatballsThis is a wildly popular recipe in a neighborhood food group I belong to. I used ground turkey, fresh parsley from my garden instead of the thyme, chopped onions I had frozen previously, and Swiss cheese instead of the pricey Gruyere.



A healthy acai bowl with lots of fruits and toppings.

A plate of sourdough cinnamon muffins.

Sourdough Cinnamon MuffinsTwo years ago I made a sourdough starter and have kept it going. Every time I decide to "feed" it, I make sourdough bread. One can only make sourdough bread so often, so I wanted to find other recipes using sourdough starter and found this muffin one.

Foggy Glasses or Face Shield?Between the masks and the eyeglasses, I am always fogged up, especially living in Florida; so what is the answer? Dawn dish detergent! You wash your glasses and the fogging disappears. If it comes back, wash them again.

A wreath hanger holding up a basket in the pantry.

Alternate Uses for a Wreath HangerI've purchased several wreath hangers through the years, but had started using a magnet hook for my front door wreaths, so had several wreath holders being stored in the attic, and I finally found a good use for them. I put the wreath holders on my metal wire shelves in the utility room, and they are so handy for all sorts of things, like hanging up a little basket for sorting lightweight clothing after doing the laundry, hanging up a jacket, or holding hangers, so they're all ready, when I hang up clothing out of the dryer, to be moved to the closet.

Storing BulbsWhere to store all the plant bulbs you dig up this fall? In the leg of an old panty hose. Hang high in the garage and let the air circulate around them.

Getting Rid of Red Ants in OrchidsI live on the second floor in an apartment and I have red ants in my orchids. The orchids are intertwined into a 6 foot standing tree. I pulled as many orchids out as I can the ones that are rooted to the tree are still there. The ants just moved from one plant to the other. I've used the seven spray both the granules and the spray and still I have them. Any ideas?


A decorative figurine of a couple.

Identifying a Capodimonte FigurineThe sticker on my figurine says "Seagqrazi"? It's so difficult to read. Can you tell me if it's real or what it may be worth please. Many thanks!
