“I’m going to make something light for dessert.”
“Strawberry Mousse and Forgotten Cookies.”
“You forgot what?”
“No, I’m also making cookies to go with the mousse.”
I crushed the strawberries with a potato masher. You don’t want puree. Leave some chunks. Serve with Forgotten Cookies. You’ll see.
Another recipe saved from its original pen and paper format. One down and several thousand more to go.
“Why do I always make the dessert?”
“Because you make wonderful desserts and our dinner parties would not be the same without one of your desserts.”
This cookie recipe is a recipe Grandma Beverly used to make. I don’t remember The Boss ever making this cookie. When the offspring were young there were always homemade cookies in the house. Still I’m pretty sure I never had this cookie. Until yesterday. I was forced to sample one before dinner. All I said was
“These things are dangerous!”
I learned the “forgotten” part of the cookie description is when you put the cookie sheet into the oven then turn the oven off. Set it and forget it.
Spinach and kale are favorites of those looking to stay physically fit, but they also could keep consumers cognitively fit, according to a new study. The study, which included 60 adults aged 25 to 45, found that middle-aged participants with higher levels of lutein — a nutrient found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, as well as avocados and eggs — had neural responses that were more on par with younger individuals than with their peers.
Today I made a warehouse club run. I needed mineral water, coffee, and…spinach. Seriously, I just bought a huge tub of organic spinach. I have no clue what I’m going to use the spinach for but at least I’ll be improving my neural responses.
Kale? No thanks.

It’s been two months since I posted a recipe. Too many interesting research articles, bunnies, work…the list is endless. Well the drought is over. I had leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge and told myself “I am not going to waste perfectly fine leftover mashed potatoes”. I hopped online to find a decent potato pancake recipe. But instead, I stumbled on a quiche recipe that used instant mashed potatoes for the crust. One of my go to recipes is frittata that has plenty of potatoes in it. So why not quiche?
Trigger Warning for Easily Offended Militant Vegans
Stop reading now. This recipe has eggs and dairy.
3 tablespoons EVO
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 small (or half a large) sweet onion, chopped
2 cups frozen organic chopped spinach, thawed & drained
2 large mushrooms (white button or baby bella) sliced thin
4 large eggs
1 cup organic half and half
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Two dashes nutmeg
salt & pepper
Slice & serve.
Why yes, of course you can add cooked diced bacon at step 8.5. Swiss instead of cheddar would be an excellent substitute. If you don’t have any leftover mashed potatoes by all means use one of those deep dish frozen pie shells. If you add bacon and use a frozen pie crust this recipe becomes my world famous spinach quiche that I’ve been making for years. But as I move along the spectrum to more of a WFPB diet I’ve been leaving the bacon out.
I’m not quite sure how I would make this pie palatable for my easily offended militant vegan readers. I need to think about this a little more.
Eating foods included in two healthy diets — the Mediterranean or the MIND diet — is linked to a lower risk for memory difficulties in older adults, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
People often call my mother’s recovery a miracle. And while I understand the sentiment, I believe the miraculous thing may be that so much illness could be avoided if people could only move from foods that hurt to foods that heal.
Great story about love and plants.
A long term healthy, quality diet can reduce the risk of cardiometabolic conditions. Gertraud Maskarinec, MD, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology at University of Hawaii Cancer Center said, “The message that diet quality, not just quantity, matters is important for everyone who wants to maintain both a healthy body weight and a healthy metabolism.”
“It’s moving people along a continuum, whether people are eating red meat every day and you ask them to start eating a little more white meat, or they’re already on a white meat kick and it’s a little bit more seafood, or moving even further along to alternative proteins or produce. You can’t expect everyone to start loving lentils day one,” Giambastiani says. “Some do, most don’t. What you’re trying to do instead is get people to think about that continuum.”
"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
