Simple Fudgy Flourless Cookies

I’ve done about six text batches and they’ve all turned out very tasty! The stickiness and their ability to hold together was very different depending on whether I used the whole egg, a clay baking sheet, arrowroot added and the time baked. Some turned out really sticky and ended up as one, big delicious cookie…

Kimchi Salad

I was inspired by the sauerkraut salad to make this kimchi salad. The peanuts and peanut butter were inspired by my friend who eats peanut butter and kimchi together on pancakes, oatmeal and sandwiches. 0.o I’m surprised by how good this salad is. If you’re unsure, leave out the peanut butter and try it with…

Creamy Fruit Salad! (Probiotic too)

This is so satisfying. Rich, deep, sweet and good for me. Maybe it’s good for you too? It resembles Ambrosia salad but without the headache. I think it would be amazing topped with some Homemade marshmallows from The Nourishing Gourmet.. This is so easy and so delicious, it’s scary. O.o Creamy Fruit Salad: -2 cups…

Nourishing Granola With Local Oats and Honey

Finally! I get asked for this recipe a lot. It seems Keirsten and my mother can’t seem to remember it. 😛 My kids love this granola. It even satisfies my youngest son who has an inclination towards very sweet foods. We eat it with milk as a cereal, layered with fruit and yogurt into a…

I Lie To My Children About Food….

One day I decided to stop lying to my children about what they were eating. I use to always sneak in a little hemp hearts or cod liver oil or whatever my newest fad food was at the time. I started to wonder if this practice may have been hurting them more than helping. I…

Movin’ Forward…

 The question always has been how can we provide local, healthy foods to people at an affordable price while paying farmers enough to keep them going?  Turns out that the longer you persist at something, the easier it gets. As we work consistently with the same farms, the efficiency increases on all ends and we…

Progress, not perfection.

I’m still fairly ridiculous, eh? If I sit and really thinking about, this basket full of foreign produce seems so extreme to me. The lengths it would have taken to get this here to me… many hands and machinery and trucks and boats and maybe even planes over thousands of kilemetres of oceans, forests, deserts…

When Salty Meets Sweet

I found myself in a batch of granola today. Instantly, for one moment, I knew how to be in the world. There was something about the way the oats absorbed the ingredients so willingly without hesitation. I felt immersed in thoughts about the butter coming from a cows udder and how someone was in tune…
