This a redo and making-it-better of my Rancho Gordo Ayocote Morado Beans. I nearly cried when we finished this batch, especially as they are already out of stock! I pre-soaked these beans for an hour… seeing the beautiful beans in … Continue reading
Bored with talk of beans yet? Oh well. because I have lots more beany things to explore! These beans smelled like fresh grass when I opened the bag. Now I am smelling ALL my bags — but so far none … Continue reading
Between the pandemic, working long hours, and the protests I have had no time for posting. I continued to make marks late at night. Our anniversary in May was quiet and we slept, ate, and binge watched the Good Karma … Continue reading
