Well that was fun! There is nothing like the freedom and excitement of literally throwing ingredients together without a recipe to make you feel alive in the kitchen. As mentioned last week I was on a mission to create a grain free, egg free and sugar free (although that last part I had to give up on) version of something that I could call... [read more]

Recently, I have discovered that I am allergic to eggs, which in my world is akin to being allergic to something as integral to my diet as coffee, water, or maybe even air. I love eggs, I have been eating them my entire life and heck! We even got chickens to grow our own eggs. This has been a shift in my life and diet that has coincided with my eliminating...

You may have heard through the grapevine that a Deli remodel is in the works. I want to take this opportunity to begin the process of communicating the changes to you. As you know, the Deli register stationed in front of the Juice Bar creates quite a cross traffic flow that makes it difficult for customers to shop. For this reason, we’ll be removing... [read more]

I have been noticing flowering trees and bushes for weeks now and recently, there is even some serious growth in our greenhouse.  Spring is the perfect time to cleanse your system and eating greens is a perfect way to do so.  Although, eating greens is a year round activity in my family, I like to throw some of the less tame greens into the mix every spring. ...

In my family growing up we all seemed to have a favorite breakfast that we enjoyed and would make for the rest of the family on weekends and special holidays. My brother seemed to favor one eyed jacks also known as eggs in the basket, one in the hole, hen in a nest and most likely many other names. Essentially the idea is that you take a piece of bread and butter it, cut out a... [read more]

I have discovered a new culinary JOY! Having recently embarked on the Whole30 challenge and eliminated all dairy, potatoes, sugar, grains, legumes, alcohol and all artificial everything from my diet, I have been experimenting more in my kitchen than usual. Wanting to replace mashed potatoes with something else for a special date night dinner, I came across a recipe for... [read more]

Hopefully, after reading all of this month’s posts about beets, you’ve discovered, or rediscovered, your love for these roots.  Have they made their way onto your dinner plate yet? Once there, you cannot ignore the pink that bleeds from the heart of the beet. It is a truly special property that has so much potential in the kitchen, especially when it comes to desserts....

As promised, some of my favorite recipes that feature beets.  If you are already a beet fanatic, maybe I am starting too simply for you, but knowing what I do about the bad rap beets get, I really want to start simple in hopes of converting a few of you. Beet & Apple Salad You may have noticed that my measurements are not often precise in my recipes, how can I... [read more]

“The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious. Slavic peoples get their physical characteristics from potatoes, their smoldering inquietude... [read more]

The Super Bowl is a food holiday whether you are a football fan or not.  Grocery stores put up displays featuring chips and guacamole, nacho fixings and all sorts of finger foods that are easy to eat while holding a beverage and jumping up and down screaming like a maniac.  According to the Hass Avocado Board, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the year's biggest...
