Did you know radish greens can be eaten? Smaller new leaves are a great addition to salads and such. As they grow bigger they can be bitter, but I like to use them in this simple soup that is easy to customize to your personal tastes. The radish leaves give the soup a peppery taste, which is why I don't have other seasonings in the ingredient list, but I sometimes add different ingredients depending on what I feel like that day.
Who says roughing it means you can't have dessert? This simple recipe is very tasty, and can be used for backpacking, camping, picnics, or even just to have at home for the kids to make a single serving for a snack.
My FIL enjoys this hot drink, but one year the commercial brand he usually had just wasn't available in our town. After trying out some other homemade mixes, I came up with this one. Easy to make for yourself or for a gift.
This dough is simple to make and has a slightly sweet taste. The kids love making their own pizza pockets, and I love using leftovers to make calzone type sandwiches. Make some up for dinner, or choose fillings that freeze well and you can make a bunch to have on hand for lunches and picnics. *Note: this is a sticky dough to aid in pinching the pockets closed. Adjust flour as needed to work with it.
