Welcome to Roots, Fruits, Leaves, and Seeds

February 7, 2010: Day two of the Blizzard of 2010 in Northern Virginia. The storm started Friday around noon. Less than 20 hours later, we had approximately 31 inches of new snow and blizzard conditions. Nik was snowed in at his mountain home in West Virginia; Sarah's flight was cancelled from Dallas to BWI and Nathan was home with us. Andrea and Ralph were soaking up the rays in Florida with Bonnie and Ralph.

When I wasn't shoveling snow, I was busy experimenting in the kitchen and working on my new cookbook. Two full days in the kitchen has resulted in a number of successes. Success in our kitchen is tied to a plant based diet free of gluten, soy, dairy, and eggs. I'll be telling you more about that as we get to know each other.

For now, enjoy the picture I took during the storm and take a look at one of this weekend's successes: English Muffins.

Here are the English Muffins--full of nooks and crannies, slightly crunchy on the outside and soft and airy on the inside. Recipe will be posted soon.


  1. The English muffin looks delicious! The snow, not so much... Looking forward to the recipe.
