I am mildly obsessed with lentils. Low in calories, high in fiber and protein, they are a go-to of mine for soup, salads, and sides. This Lentil Salad requires no recipe. It wants whatever you’ve got and only gets better sitting overnight in your fridge. See below for how I pulled mine together and for […]
Quick bread is my go-to when the weekend rolls around or when guests arrive. It’s so easy to make and serves as a great breakfast, snack, or after dinner treat with tea. I’ve got citrus on the brain and cranberries in the freezer – which can only mean one thing – Cranberry Nut Bread. This is the […]
This salad was a big hit at Flagstone Pantry. I came home from the gym today, saw the Brussels Sprouts in the fridge, and made it immediately. It comes together in minutes. It’s perfect for a day like today but equally up to entertaining. The recipe calls for a Pomegranate Vinaigrette, which is delicious. Today […]
Whenever I purchase a wedge of Parmesan cheese, I cut the rind off and put in the freezer. Then, on a day like today, when I want to make soup – it’s right there waiting for me. Adding a Parmesan rind to soups while they simmer provides depth to the flavor. It’s that simple – […]
In 2018, I closed Flagstone Pantry to relocate to Washington, D.C. – again. I’ve had a little time to reflect on my experience owning and operating Flagstone Pantry, which I’ve concluded was equal parts rewarding, challenging, fun and terrifying. Being featured on Cooking Channel’s Cheap Eats: Santa Barbara for my Cowboy Cooking was simply the […]
In January 2018, the crew from Cooking Channel joined us for 2 days of filming and fun featuring our Cowboy Cookie. A hearty snack containing peanut butter, coconut, chocolate chips and oats – it’s about time the Cowboy Cookie got some prime time love (if we may say so ourselves)! They took over our kitchen […]
The best thing about these blondies, besides the peanut butter and dark chocolate chips, is the fact that no one realizes they are made with gluten-free ingredients! Chewy and satisfying, you won’t miss the all-purpose flour. Trust us on this. Get yours at Crazy Good Bread Company in Montecito and Carpinteria. Enjoy!
This is an exciting day. About 3 1/2 years ago, I started a blog at getyouryummyback.com (GYYB). Ever since, I’ve been posting recipes weekly for soups, salads, sides, main dishes, starters, breakfast and treats. I’ve highlighted how to cook gluten-free whole grains, tips for the perfect stir-fry and how to grill a turkey. There are now about 250 recipes in the GYYB archive.
I am officially moving all of the GYYB content here to flagstonepantry.com, where I run my business. There are lots of good things in the works at Flagstone Pantry and I look forward to keeping you in the loop on all the shenanigans. Until then, if you are looking for a recipe, simply use the search bar to search by ingredient or by key word such as “main dish” or “muffin”…
I do this all the time. I find a recipe that looks tempting and then I make it my own by changing ingredients, the method of preparation, or both. My latest success in this category ~ Roasted Pepper and Pumpkin Soup.
I’m always in the market for a good hearty soup! This Lentil Sausage Soup is a keeper. Lentils cook relatively quickly, so I consider this a weeknight recipe. It also freezes well. I served it up with a green salad and some equally hearty Irish Soda Bread. ~yum~
