In the last few months I've made candied citrus peel, rolled out my own tortillas and recycled vegetable scraps into soup stock. I'm collecting rejected bread heels in the freezer to make my own breadcrumbs, and we're growing alfalfa sprouts in a jar in the cabinet. It's a pretty good time.
But just because I cook with whole foods, does not mean I don't sometimes turn them into junk foods. Over the weekend, I made soft pretzels and fresh ginger ale. To accommodate, Kurt made Richo's beer cheese. Certainly, we know how to party.
