grain-free tabbouleh

grain-free tabbouleh

I've made this Grain-free Tabbouleh recipe from Melissa Joulwan's The Clothes Make the Girl for several potlucks now and it's always been a huge hit. The cauliflower substitution for bulgur wheat is a really good touch. Chris is part Lebanese and I'm a sucker for ethnic food so we jump on the tabbouleh-train whenever possible. […]

Many people don't have much experience with offal. Eating animal organs has become uncommon and that's a bit of a shame. Our ancestors ate organs for two main reason: organs are nutritional powerhouses and there's no sense in wasting precious food. If you took part in our most recent cow-share or are looking to expand […]

dairy-free, easy peasy pesto

dairy-free, easy peasy pesto

Something I always tell people about eating healthy is to have fun with it! It shouldn't be some a punishment or horrible chore that you have to do. Eating clean is not easy but it doesn't have to be miserable. That's when you can start getting creative. Homemade condiments and sauces are one way to […]

Who loves fall? This girl. I love everything about it: the beautiful saturated colors of the leaves, the crisp air in the mornings that make you want to stay in bed, the smell of cider and pumpkin - I don't even mind having to carry layers of clothes around because it's cold in the morning […]

It's been a while since I have posted and for that, I apologize. Life has been a little crazy recently - I ended my position at a local restaurant and am now working for a local photographer in hopes of absorbing and learning everything & anything. Needless to say, I've been a little stressed. Stressed […]

beet & apple faux-slaw

A spark of ingenuity hit me last week while we were cooking up some beef tongue tacos (don't hate - lengua is delicious). We just started receiving our winter CSA share from Horse and Buggy Produce and in an effort to use up as much as we could, I came up with this concoction! This beet and […]

kale chips, from green to yummy

I love making these on lazy Sunday afternoons. Kale chips are super easy to make and satisfy the need to munch on something in the middle of the day. My process is a little tedious but it's well-worth it in the end -- I usually have some music or a movie going on in the […]

simple & easy Brussels sprouts

You start with the salty smell of a good olive oil, where you actually taste olives, not oil. Take a large flat plate and get a good solid layer of oil over it, sprinkling lightly with your favorite sea salt. You’ve washed the small buds of Brussels sprouts, making sure all the dirt has been […]

Upcoming recipes!

Okay, so I'm not just sitting on my butt and eating copious amounts of food (well, not ALL the time). I'm testing out a couple of recipes that I hope to share with everyone but several trials must be completed. (As a side note, testing recipes is a really good way to satisfy all your […]
