Warning: Shameless, shameless, shameless self-promotion is about to ensue. A few months ago my friend Sharmin Meadows, who writes a blog called What You’re Missing KC!, recorded a short video with me at the kitchen downtown I was teaching cooking classes out of at the time. Since the film was shot that building has been [...]

This has to be one of my favorite meals, vegan or not. It’s even better in the summer when the vegetables are in season and you can wash it down with a glass of crisp white. By the way, still on the Daniel Fast. One. More. Week. So, here’s the meal. First I make homemade [...]
I whipped this up this morning and it was too good not to share real quick. In fact as I typing my 3 year old is ordering his third piece. For a kid who has barely ate for the past four days and has been running a low-grade temperature, I’m happy to serve him up [...]
Sugar-free and chocolate-free truffles? Yep, officially doing the Daniel Fast and I so far feel great…physically. My last post I shared with you the 21 day detox program I was doing, which I ended up losing 6 pounds, my skin looks great and I am full of energy. Going into the Daniel Fast I have [...]
I don’t have a lot of time this morning, but I have been wanting to post this recipe for weeks. I’m finding I never have a lot of time, though, so I’m just going to sit down and do it. You need this before Christmas, trust me. I am really on a caramel kick right [...]

Doesn’t that look good?? Just moments before I saw Heidi’s post on 101cookbooks.com for Golden Lentil Potstickers, I had every intention of working like a mad women on my impossibly long “to-do” list. Suddenly my “to-do” list got re-prioritized (fresh pasta was on that list somewhere, wasn’t it??).
Dear Canning, I’m just not into you. I love mason jars, though. Thanks, Jamie I don’t make it a secret that I don’t like to can. I feel like it’s one of those situations where I can embrace technology and make traditional homesteading a little easier without going all the way over to “the dark [...]
Ricotta cheese is something I’ve never been a huge fan of. That is until I started making my own. If you can boil milk then you can make cheese. No special ingredients, such as rennet, required.
Kale Mint Pesto This makes a lot of pesto. It will freeze very well, though, especially if you freeze it in small portions (ice cube trays work great ). This can be used in so many ways. Drizzle over meat (especially lamb), pasta, veggies, soup, bread, crackers…you get the idea. Instead of kale you can [...]
