I make variations of this soup all winter since cabbage and potatoes are some of the only vegetables we can get locally. This last batch was especially good and I think it has to do with the technique of layering flavors throughout the cooking process. This is an extremely economical and easy meal.Read More
I love quiche and this one was especially delicious. The gruyere and carmelized onions add a great depth of flavor and the buttery, spelt crust was amazing. Serve with a simple green salad for a healthy and satisfying dinner.Read More
Making refried beans from scratch is simple — no cans necessary! This is loosely based on Mark Bittman's recipe found in How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. If you must use canned beans, try Eden brand. They now makes cans without BPA lining, which has been shown to cause all sorts of problems. The great thing about this recipe is that it can be adjusted to accommodate any season. Right now, peppers are overflowing at the farmers markets as well as in our own garden. But in the winter, you can simply use onions instead. If you are lucky enough to live in a place where avocados are local and in season, they make a great addition to this meal. The recipe below is the bare bones version. Feel free to pep it up with some peppers, greens, zucchini or whatever else you can think of.Read More
I've made this potato salad for two BBQ's so far and both times it was a big hit. This is my grandfather's recipe that I modified only slightly by making my own mayonnaise. The recipe for homemade mayonnaise follows as well. It is so easy and much more healthful than any store-bought brand. Making your own potato salad is great way to indulge in one of summer's treats without having to worry about what exactly is in that white-ish goop covering the potatoes and other vegetables. This recipe is also nutrient-dense — full of hard boiled eggs, onions, parsley, celery and healthy fats from the homemade mayonnaise. This makes enough to feed a crowd!
Salmon is one of the most nutritious foods and has been prized and valued for its nourishment in traditional cultures throughout history.

Eating fish promotes excellent growth and bone structure and is crucial for pregnant women, babies and young children.Read More
