A Warm Sweetcorn & Garden Pea Ebly Salad


Shivaay Delights


Ebly is a wheat berry where the entire wheat kernel (except for the hull), composed of the bran, germ, and endosperm is in tact. Wheatberries have a tan to reddish brown color and are available as either a hard or soft processed grain. They are often added to salads or baked into bread to add a crunchy texture. When wheat berries are milled the resulting flour is whole wheat
This side dish is often called Ebly, from the name of the first brand of cooked wheatberries.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake ~ Annie's Cooking Lab

I spent last weekend enjoying some time on the west coast with my family. Whenever we get together there is sure to be an abundance of delicious food, and last weekend was no exception.

Slow Cooker Lentil Chili ~ Annie's Cooking Lab

One of my favorite things about cool weather is being able to use my slow cooker to prepare different kinds of soup. It’s such an easy, low-maintenance way to make a ton of food to get me through the week. Usually by this time of year I’m getting burned out on soup and the weather is warm enough that eating hot soup doesn’t sound very appealing, but this has been a cool spring and I’m not sick of soup yet, so it’s staying on the menu for at least a little while longer.

A few weeks ago I went for a very cold, windy hike and was absolutely drenched with rain by the time I got back to the car. It was so great come home to a hot shower and a bowl of this lentil chili! This soup has great flavor from all the vegetables and spices and it’s pretty healthy while still…
