We love polenta and I always make more than I need as the leftovers are so much fun! We frequently waffle them, but when it can be spread into a baking dish to set and chill, my family goes crazy for Polenta Fries! These never disappoint and can be made in a fry pan with a small amount of oil or, fried in a large cast iron sauce pan in about 2" of oil. I love to do these in olive oil,(and sometimes use a combo of olive and grape seed oil) but I do make sure it stays below its smoke point, at about 350F, to retain its flavor and nutritional benefits. This splatters and makes a mess, but once in a while, that's okay! Serve with your favorite Marinara and some grated Parmesan for dipping. You may cut this in any shape you like- I've also done round disks and served these as mini pizza bites! Happy weekend!

We love Black Bean Soup! I made a big pot yesterday (while pie making) and we still have a little left to enjoy today, which makes me very happy. I love making this very thick and puréeing the beans. You make purée half or omit this step entirely if you choose. Adjust chili peppers to suit your heat preference. Choose good quality ingredients for best outcome and please choose organic where you are able. This recipe is very flexible- adjust all seasoning to suit and based on what you have on hand!

Delicious (really delicious) Vegan Creamy Kale and Potato Bake. Yummy and so satisfying for a chilly evening. Recipe adapted from Kaity @fareisle. I used German Butterball and Purple Peruvian Potatoes and lots of lacinato Kale. I needed to omit the garlic a limit the onion- but that's how I need to roll. This is still so flavorful and such healthful comfort food! You want to make this. I baked this in my new @staub_usa cast iron oval baker- it couldn't be better!!!

Hot mess! This doesn't look refined, but does it hit the spot and is not nearly as decadent as it appears. This creation is worth making again and again! Think banana bread loaded with antioxidant packed dark chocolate but disguised as pancakes that ooze chocolate with every forkful! Refined sugar free (except for the dusting which you may omit and syrup not necessary), gluten free and dairy free.

I do love salmon, and creating and discovering fresh preparations for my family and friends is always at the top of my list! This amazingly delicious Salmon Burger recipe adapted from @bartsfishtales is simple to prepare, cooks up quickly and is sure to please any appetite! For a crowd, turn these into two bite sliders! (would be great for New Year'). Use wild salmon when you are able and you may ask the fishmonger to remove the skin for you. Here, I chose a multigrain gluten free bun. Choose your favorite (whole grain always best) and load this up with fresh avocado, leafy greens and sliced veggies for an even more impactful nutritional punch! This one will go on repeat!

Don't be deceived by the pile of forks next the the very last piece of the exquisite Pavlova, I have no intention of sharing! And, as this is mostly heavenly meringue, I can pretend it's quite virtuous. Thank you Erin and Richard @cloudykitchen @richardclarksonstudio for bringing such a delicious homemade creation- the passion fruit curd is out of this world! We'll be dreaming of this for a while!!! Wishing all of you happy and healthy holidays filled with lots of love and laughter (and some sweet homemade treats)!!!

Will be arriving home soon after a long and chilly weekend and dreaming of this yummy, thick, comforting Kabocha Squash Soup with Mirin, tamari, rice vinegar, dashi... and desperately hoping I'll still have some in the freezer. But, I have a feeling, no such luck.
This batch was topped with tahini from @seedandmill Sautéed maitake and Gomasio.
