Taking a break in Taos, where the natural beauty is gorgeous.

Detoxifying and refreshing with a hint of sweet licorice, here’s a great use for those feathery fennel greens. High in anti-oxidants, vitamin-C, and bioflavonoids, fennel’s exotic flavor comes from the essential oil anethole, also found in anise and licorice.

It’s dandelion season! I went for a walk in the hills of Santa Fe, and the wild dandelions were calling me. I love them sautéed, but today I want them raw with nutrients and enzymes intact. Aha! How about a pesto? An hour later I was spreading yummy pesto

Sausage Stuffed Delicata Squash

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.
