Lacey Potato Cakes

Lacey Potato Cakes

We're big fans of these versatile potato cakes. Crisp them up for Sunday brunch, top with smoked salmon for your next dinner party, or serve along side roasted vegetables. These crisp, gluten free cakes are incredibly easy to make and can be made with a variety of ingredients.  Not a fan of potatoes, use sweet potato or butternut squash instead. 

Garlicky Beans and Kale

Garlicky Beans and Kale

To make it through most days with ease, quick cooking, but nutritious dishes are a must. This is one of those recipes that takes just minutes to prepare and really satisfies the palate. Paired with lots of garlic, and fresh greens, this is a quick cooking recipe that can stand up on its own, or paired with a variety of different proteins. For those folks who enjoy eating meat, try cooking some bacon first, then completing the recipe in the bacon fat, yum!

Broccoli & Blood Oranges

Broccoli & Blood Oranges

Citrus season is here! Grapefruits, tangelos, tangerines, and juicing oranges are one of my most appreciated "imports" come late winter. After several months of eating grounding roots and hearty meat based stews, adding in citrus fruits and fresh pressed juice is my favorite way to begin my real food "cleanse" for spring.

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Not much explaining to do here. This easy recipe is straight forward and damn good tasting. Sweet and savory collide for an unusually great pairing of bacon and dates. As the dates heat up they ooze with caramel flavor. While the bacon crisps up, it oozes with salty-smokey flavor.
