This creamy mélange is one of the best recipes ever to come out of my kitchen. There are so many uses for this luscious spread – starting with Thanksgiving dinner! It tastes tempting on biscuits, hot rolls, apple muffins, even pancakes. Try it on meat dishes like chicken, or pork. Pretty soon, you’ll be putting it on everything – making Chocolate Oreo Sandwiches with Pumpkin Honey Butter, and using it as a topping on ice cream! How about a Pumpkin Honey Milkshake, or luscious Pumpkin Honey Caramel Chai? It’s up to you. I’ve always considered honey to be a truly […]
Recently I’ve been using a lot of chia seeds in my recipes. I find them perfect for grain-free cooking, and loaded with nutritional benefits. People often ask how to use chia seeds in recipes. Aha! I have some amazing secrets to share with you. Chia seeds expand to absorb 9x their volume in liquid, which makes them ideal in gluten-free, grain-free baking. When chia seeds are used in breads and sweets, the dough gets sticky almost like gluten, but without the negative side-effects of bloating and weight gain. They can sometimes be used as a partial egg substitute. Chia seeds […]
Homemade sausage is easy, and far tastier than store-bought. It’s quick to mix ground meat with herbs and spices. Spoon it into a squash and bake, for one of the easiest meals in town. And yummiest! I used organic ground turkey. However grass-fed, grass-finished beef, bison, non-gmo chicken, or pork are also delicious. As a former fan of acorn and butternut squash, I found they’re harder to cut, peel, and the tough outer skin takes a long time to bake. Recently I discovered delicata squash. It has a rich, sweet flavor and a wonderful texture. Best of all, the skins are […]
By Jane Barthelemy. When I see “Natural flavors” listed on a food label, I feel immediately anxious, unprotected, and suspicious. I conjure up bizarre images of chemical experiments in a food laboratory. What is the truth about “Natural Flavors”? What does the term mean? How can I protect myself from unhealthy ingredients not listed on the label? Executive Summary – The word “Natural” means nothing. There are thousands of “Natural flavors” used in processed foods ranging from lemon peel, to MSG, to vanilla extract. Consumers are just now becoming extremely aware of “Natural flavors”, as a general term for undisclosed […]
OK, this is trouble…a serious love affair with um – hazelnuts. Their deep, dark, rich flavor blends tantalizingly with chocolate. Pure hazelnut butter, toasted hazelnuts, and hazelnut meal put these Paleo brownies right over the top as the fudgiest and chewiest I’ve ever tasted. They’re free of gluten, grains, dairy, sugar. And even better – they’re super-easy to make. If you use the chicory root sweetener suggested, they’ll give your blood sugar a break, making them a true guilt-free indulgence with no sacrifice in flavor. If you don’t have hazelnuts, just substitute almonds, almond butter, and almond meal – they’ll turn out […]
