Hummus

Hello Readers,

How do you feel about hummus? Personally I find it super delicious, it satisfies my craving for something creamy, and savory in between meals. Most of us use it as a dip for our chips or veggies, but I also like to use it as a spread on sandwiches in place of mayo.

Check out the recipe below the photo.

Classic hummus topped with lemon zest for extra zing..

Recipe

  • 2 Lemons ( zested and juiced)
  • 16 oz can of chickpeas( drained,rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tbsp olive oil ( or sunflower)
  • 2 large tbsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

1) Drain and rinse canned chickpeas. ( optional step, lightly saute them to deepen flavor)

2) In a blender, add in juice from lemons, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

3) Blend to desired consistency. Remove and place into bowl.

4) Gently mix in lemon zest an save some to use as garnish. Serve room temperature.

Thanks for reading, until next time! Cheers!

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!

Apple Picking

Hello Readers and happy Tuesday!

Last weekend some friends and I went to Honey Pot Hill in Massachusetts and it was so incredibly fun! It was cloudy day and we assumed it would be a quick day with not a lot of people. We were very wrong! Cloudy or sunny Honey Pot hill is packed and with good reason. The apples were rich in flavor and are on a different level compared to whatever you get at a super market.

As you know I am an avid supporter of local farms and encourage you to do the same no matter where you live. I could honestly go on for a few pages on the details of the yummy apples but, instead I will give you a list other fun stuff at the orchard.

  1. Apple cider donuts- I mean…yes..just yes
  2. Petting farm-great for the little kids and us kid-adults
  3. Grill-hot yummy food like wings for after the hard cider tent
  4. Hard cider tent- 21 plus
  5. Ice cream, caramel apples and shakes!
  6. Relaxing scenery!

With my bag of apples I made a German apple cake for my mom’s birthday with the recipe on the back of the brochure I got at the orchard. This cake was so moist, my mom requested another for this week! Great excuse for me to go back to the orchard before the season slips away.

Tell me your favorite apple recipes and places to go apple picking! I would love to check out other orchards in the area.
