Brownies for all

Today, people are becoming more aware of their bodies, and foods that make them feel their best. Sometimes, that means substituting traditional ingredients, for new ones. When it comes to baked goods, this can get really tricky, especially if you are trying to stay away from processed ingredients and make things taste as normal as possible.

There are many chefs who trying to help this issue and are focusing all their talents on finding yummy solutions. Admittedly I have just begun to look for alternatives that are natural, and unprocessed. I finally was able to perfect a recipe last weekend.

For chewy fudge brownies, you will need flaxseeds, cocoa powder, baking soda and a secret ingredient..

Beef Stroganoff

Here in chilly New England winter brings us a short list of fresh, seasonal veggies and fruits. Giving us, logically, a great long list of creamy, carb loaded dishes that we can indulge in! Yay!

This week I wanted to highlight beef stroganoff. Getting its origins from Russia, this dish is traditionally made with sautéed beef and a cream sauce made with sour cream, delicious to say the least.

This winter it is on our meal prep menu and it is super popular.

We make ours a little different by searing our red wine marinated beef, baby bella mushrooms, and onions.Then making our cream suace with a little bit of rosemary and serving it up with egg noddles.

If you would like to place an order you can do so by connecting with us on the contact page.

Thanks for reading this week! Until next time.

Cheers!

El Dia de los Tres Reyes Magos

See the source image
thank you clipart

In Latin culture we love to celebrate, and January is no exception! The Christmas celebration is not over in Spain and most other Spanish speaking countries! January 6th is a day dedicated to celebrating the arrival of the 3 wise men/kings/magi, who brought baby Jesus the famous gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

This day is celebrated more extravagantly than Christmas day, with crown shaped sweet breads, gifts, stuffed stocking and lavish parties, a magical day and the official 12fth day of Christmas.

I find this celebration a beautiful reminder of the reality of life. The 3 magi did not arrive on the day of Jesus’ birth, it would have been impossible given the time period, mode of transport, and distance from their kingdoms to Bethlehem. And this celebration reminds me that our gifts are not going to always show up when we “believe they should” but when God ( universe, higher power who ever you believe in) knows it is time for us to receive them.

So today I hope you are able to celebrate in the peace that the start of a new year brings us all, and relish in the “late” gifts you will be receiving through out the year!

Happy 2020!
