And this year I will also make sage syrup so it is on hand for cough and cold season. We really enjoyed these sage biscuits last Sunday. They are a basic baking powder biscuit or scone recipe with a generous add...

Review: Lentil Meatloaf Muffins

Amy Katz, of Veggies Save The Day came up with a great idea. Instead of putting your traditional lentil loaf or tofu based ‘meatloaf’ in a bread form, she used cupcake forms. It’s so much easier to serve and looks nicer on the plate as well. You can use her recipe, or your traditional, favorite recipe works well also.
