Do Not Go Gentle Into that Good Night

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.”

I am tired. I am tired of being tired, tired of laying around the house, and I am most certainly sick and tired of dying. So its the new year, huh? This is where most bloggers would make there resolutions. Well…this is what I think about new years resolutions.

Homemade Lemonade

It seems “taking a break to recover from having a tooth removed” really means “work your butt off and put out even MORE recipes!”

This is one of my all time favorite drinks. Yes Its a little high on the sugar side but hey, I’m not diabetic. If you are then MAYBE you can use splenda. I have no idea. I may experiemt and get back to you with a low suagr version one day. But not before I make homemade ~SPOILER ALERT~ Ginger-ale. Yup, you heard me. I learned how to make Ginger-ale soda from a friend of mine. But enough talk about things to come, for now we make lemony goodness!

The Basics: White Bread

Though I am still out of it while recovering from my pulled tooth I had an idea. When I posted the “Basics” yesterday it occurred to me that I do a lot of things every day that I take for granted. For example, I was making bread for the week. This is something I do all the time. Its nothing special to me really. But it got me thinking; this is exactly the kind of thing I should be sharing! So here is my go to bread. Since the bread in the store is loaded with sodium and other crap that we just don’t need I set out to make a renal friendly white bread for sandwiches. I have been eating this bread for almost a year now. Hope you enjoy it!

The Basics: Omelets

While I am off healing I thought I would touch on something really basic; an Omelet. Why? Well I don’t know about you but I seem to eat one of these things for breakfast almost every morning. For most of us this is a safe, everyday, option. So I thought why not take a minute, or thirty, to learn about how to “do it right.” So here is my food hero, A. B., to show you how its done. Remember; we are on a renal diet. I am not saying that everything he is going to show you is good for you. Use your own commonsense. I just want you to understand the basics and the technique behind this awesome eggy goodness.

Tooth Break

Well it seems that I have to take a short break. I had a tooth pulled, all part of me getting on a transplant list, and until its healed no testing recipes for me. That’s right folks, I said I would not share a recipe with you unless I have made it and tried it myself. I am not a recipe re-posting website….usually. Sometimes there is something I enjoy so much from another website that I just have to share.

Check out the links section while I am recovering. I have added a few new recipe websites and a few new blogs.

Happy cooking,

Zucchini Bread

This is one of my all time favorite holiday desserts. When I was a kid my next door neighbor would make us two of these around the holidays. I never understood why my mother would freeze the second one. The first one would never last that long. Though her’s were always baked in a bread pan so when they came to us they looked like tinfoil wrapped bricks, tasty, tasty bricks. Now a days I prefer mine in more of a coffee cake style. That and I am obsessed with my bunt pan. I didn’t add any nuts to this recipe because not only can they be a little harmful to us I just never had them in this growing up.
