Use a crockpot to warm chocolate and coconut oil, for the easiest chocolate fountain ever. I served this at a women’s retreat this spring, at a camp with minimal kitchen conveniences, and it worked. For minimal effort in serving, set the chocolate out with baskets of graham crackers and marshmallows, pretzel sticks, and strawberries. Hardly any prep involved, but so fun to eat.

Man does not live on bread alone, but we tried. (This bread was that good.) There was a learning curve to getting this artisan bread thing right, but… so worth it.
So… yeast and flour, mixed together, makes a pretty “one-dimensional” flavored bread. But. A well-tended starter, added to some dough, left to bulk-ferment and then have a final rise in the fridge, takes simple flour and water and creates a sum far greater than the parts! Which is why I bother babying my starter. OK, and obsessing about it just a tad… I have a deep respect for this little starter- it does amazing things.
These marinated mushrooms are delicious as is, or add to the grill for a real treat. We’ve been making batches of ’em at the deli, for a pre-rush snack. So savory, so delicious…
An easy way to make flavorful “preserved Meyer lemons”, only easy-style! I just pureed the lemon peel in my Vitamix with some salt, added extra virgin olive oil. Delicious, on so many things!
I’d take this over cous-cous any day–it IS a whole food, not just a refined-flour-pasta shaped like grain! Soak Bulgar wheat, add spearmint, parsley, lemon, cucumber, tomato. Light & fresh.
We like to make Lentil Vegetable Soup when we’ve made a new batch of tomato sauce- that plus veggies & a dash of liquid smoke & brown sugar make for a great soup!
Eggplant’s one of the “cleaner” veggies, so I don’t necessarily buy it organic. It’s perfect in this recipe; add the cooked mix to omelets, salads, etc. YUM!
A cool way to serve a healthy dip not loaded with chemicals & bad fats! The roasted eggplant turns silky, & mixes w/garlic, lemon, & sesame for lots of flavor.
Back in 1976, my husband’s super-cool older sister turned us on to hummus & herbal teas. We walked into a health food store in Big Sur on our honeymoon & I knew- I had to make granola too!
