My Recipes
A few weeks before turning 30 a friend sent me a list. In a quippy article it listed off the 30 Things You Should Do Before Turning 30. One of them included owning a dutch oven. I was able to confidently check that one off the list. This Rosemary Sea Salt loaf takes 10 minutes of active prep, 4 ingredients, and cooks perfectly in a dutch oven. If you've always wanted to try making a loaf of homemade bread, take a winter day in and try this recipe out. (It truly is foolproof!) Temporary link for full post in profile.
Hearty. Filling. Comforting. Resolution approved. We're all for eating clean and getting back to healthy eating with the start of the New Year. However, when it comes to drinking smoothies when it's freezing outside or a dinner of salads, sometimes we just want something warm and comforting in our stomachs. This soup is perfect for winter nights and is clean. (With one simple substitution, it's also Whole30 approved.) Today on the blog, we share the full recipe for this Winter Kale Soup. Temporary link up in profile.⠀ ⠀ P.S. Cooking for one? Store the leftovers in a large mason jar and your meal prep is complete for the week.
Nothing says a bit of luxury quite like a beautifully cooked cut of meat. This braised lamb shank is tender and falls off the bone. Braised and slow cooked in red wine and aromatics, this dish is served on a bed of herbed cauliflower. Find the full recipe at the temporary link in profile.
Layered with nutty goodness, cashew creme filling, and cranberry, these gluten-free, refined-sugar free, and vegan bars, taste anything but healthy. Meet the Christmas dessert you'll love and that everyone can enjoy this holiday season. Temporary link for the full recipe in profile.
Celebrating Christmas in Northern California is a bit different. Yesterday the weather was 70 degrees, so it's necessary to add a bit of holiday flair to some of our favorite iced drinks. With notes of mulling spices, a honey simple syrup, and dash of milk, this Holiday Spice Cold Brew is a taste of the unexpected and the perfect handmade gift.
