Mr. Crumbs is a reformed picky eater. Yes, he still has his peculiarities, but since moving out to California and having a chef and former food & beverage director prepare Sunday night dinners for six years, he’s really broadened his horizons.
While he once hated tomatoes, he now favors tomato basil soup. He’s never been fond of fish, but he’s tried freshly caught salmon (literally) twice now this year, and even liked it enough to take more than one bite! Frankly, I’m quite proud of him for being a husband to tries my weird food experiments. He’s definitely a trooper, especially when they don’t turn out as planned.
The mushroom is one of those vegetables that seems to be trickier to prepare than others. It seemed like no matter how they were prepared – grilled, sauteed, baked, stuffed, raw – he didn’t like them. For all practical purposes, I gave up on mushrooms and stopped buying them unless they were REALLY cheap, and even then I was the only one who ate them.
Today I’m welcoming my sweet friend Dena from Back to the Book Nutrition to share with you a recipe that quite frankly, I never would have thought of making! I met Dena a couple months ago through another friend (who is also a blogger) and I was in awe when she shared her story with me. Her desire to follow God and the path He has in store for her inspires me, and her recipes make me wish I could lick my computer screen! I hope she had the same effect on you guys. So, enough blabbing from me. Without further ado, here’s Dena!
Thanks to Tiffany and all of you in the Crumbs Community for having me over for a visit today. I’ve been a regular reader for a while now, so I’m thrilled to be able to share one of my recipes on such a fantastic site!
When Tiffany and I spoke recently about ideas for this post, I was shocked to hear there wasn’t a single popsicle recipe on the Crumbs web site.
Me: What do you think about a coconut popsicle recipe for my upcoming guest post on your site?
Tiffany: Oh, that would be great! I don’t think I’ve ever posted popsicles before.
Me: (Did she just say that?) Um…never?
Tiffany: It doesn’t get hot enough here in California, so I just never make them.
In Texas where I live, summer starts in May and usually lasts through the end of October. All six of those months are hot, but in July, August, and September, the heat and humidity are at their worst.
As in, race-to-the-car-before-your-makeup-melts hot. (Yes, we really do that!)
