Blueberry and Lemon Oaty Breakfast Bars

By Jacqueline Meldrum You’ve probably heard me say this before. I’m not the person who eats breakfast every morning. I know I should but I’m just not ready for anything until mid morning. It’s fine eating breakfast late on days off, but on mornings where I’m heading to work I’m just not ready to eat before I leave the house. That’s where a portable snack like these blueberry and lemon oaty breakfast bars come in. I can enjoy these later in the morning with a cuppa and I’m content until lunchtime rolls around, even if it’s a late lunch.Now apart from the oats …read more

Cherry Hand Pies

By Nick Evans It’s a small thing, but when I was about eight years old, I remember my parents letting me occasionally snag a cherry hand pie from the gas station when we filled up. It was a special treat, for sure, but one that I eventually grew out of because I found the packaged cherry hand pies to be too sweet.
Good news, though! I’m an adult now and I can make my own cherry pies—ones that have a better balance of sweet and tart flavors.

Meal Plan for May Week 5

By Megan Gordon This month, Megan Gordon is back with us sharing her weekly meal plans! Megan is a writer and recipe developer living in Seattle, WA, the author of Whole Grain Mornings, and mom to a 2-year-old. Please welcome Megan!
Memorial Day weekend is here, and with it comes some extended time off for many of us. And if your family is anything like ours, it’s also the unofficial start of grilling season!
I’m spending Saturday and Sunday sprucing up the backyard: weeding, dusting off the patio furniture, and maybe if I’m feeling inspired, trying to repair our wobbly fence (this may be an …read more

Grilled Root Beer Beef – Almost as Good as an Ice Cream Float

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) I’ve used something very close to this root beer marinade for lamb several times, and had great success, so I’ve been eager to try it with some skewered beef, which didn’t come out quite as well, but could have. Please, let me explain. Since lamb has a stronger, “gamier” taste, the sweetness of this treatment works perfectly, but I thought it was a little too much for the beef. So, below in the ingredients list, I’ve made a few adjustments to the honey amount, as well as acidity level. The beauty of a recipe like this is they’re very easy …read more

Blueberry Pitcher Margaritas

By Garrett McCord I think we’ve all seen cocktails that get out of hand with creativity, and we’ve probably all encountered when a margarita gets a bit too crazy.
I’m thinking about margaritas made with wonky ingredients like bubblegum, fish sauce, or chocolate. I think the worst I ever saw was a dill-passionfruit flavored “margarita” where the tequila was swapped out for vodka.
Vodka! Can you imagine?!

Tofu 101: How to cook tofu that doesn’t suck

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche My ‘how to’ blog posts are always super popular (how to cook halloumi perfectly; how to make a perfect baked potato; how to make perfect roast potatoes), so this time I thought I’d focus on an ingredient that a lot of people have trouble with: tofu! Millions of people around the world love tofu, but also millions don’t, and part of the reason is that when it’s not cooked properly, it can end up a soggy, spongy mess. I have definitely had my share of rubbish tofu, but over the years I’ve found a method that always works well to …read more

Grilled Snap Peas with Hazelnut-Dill Crumb

By Erin Alderson There are two ways I like my snap peas: raw or grilled. More often than not, snap peas become our spring snack. We eat them as is or they are the perfect crunchy companion for hummus or any other kind of dip. However, I always make sure to fire up the grill while we have snap peas on hand.
These grilled snap peas are eaten as a side in our house but I think you could easily turn this into a grain bowl or salad. The hazelnut crumb is a bit of a mash-up between a gremolata and breadcrumbs (but using …read more

A Stylish Press Day in London…..

By Karen Burns-Booth Early last week I set off for London as part of an invitation to view the Tesco Home Range for Autumn Winter 2018 at a special press day; the venue was in a very chic part of Soho and on arriving I was met with the most wonderful window display, featuring some of their elegant premium homeware brand Fox & Ivy range, which comprised bedding and textiles with a lovely floral dimension to it.

Coconut Mint Chip Ice Cream

By Megan Gordon I have a soft spot in my heart for dairy-free ice cream—and not because I can’t have dairy. My family and I eat our fair share of cheese, sour cream, and yes, real ice cream, too.
But I actually prefer ice cream made with coconut milk over ice cream made with eggs and dairy any day of the week. I love the flavor and natural sweetness of coconut milk, and think it really shines when made into ice cream.
If you’ve never made dairy-free ice cream before, you’re in for a treat: it doesn’t require much in the way of fancy ingredients.

Carrot and Spinach Crunch Lunch Wrap

By Jacqueline Meldrum Carrot and spinach crunch lunch wrap, it’s a bit of a tongue twister isn’t it? A tongue twister but oh so tasty! In fact it’s my husband’s favourite lunchtime wrap.He doesn’t always love my experiments at lunch time. You can just tell. He’ll eat the wrap or sandwich I’ve just set down before him, but when asked he’ll shake his head from side to side and say well it’s ok! That’s means he really isn’t keen at all, Thankfully that doesn’t happen often and he loves this wrap.I have to say I rather like it too. The flavours work …read more

Potato Chickpea Croquettes with Garlicky Sunflower Dip

By Erin Alderson I know I’ve mentioned before that I have a penchant for fried foods. It’s a once-in-awhile treat but there’s just something kind of magical about a crisp outside and a perfect inside. Given this love, it’s a bit surprising I’ve not shared croquettes before given the literal definition (bread + fried, made with potatoes). It’s easily a winner and although it takes a bit of time, I’d gladly make these for dinner.
This version is adapted from a classic potato version. In place of some of the potatoes, I’ve added chickpeas. Once the these chickpea croquettes are fried (or baked) up, …read more

Celery Sorbet – It Only Sounds Crazy

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) If you set out to make an ice cream or sorbet from a vegetable, celery wouldn’t be your first choice, but nevertheless, these unremarkable ribs produce a shockingly delicious frozen treat. And, I said “frozen treat,” instead of dessert for a reason, since this has as many savory applications as sweet ones. The first time I ever had something like this, it was used to garnish a plate of salmon gravlax. It was presented next to the cold, cured fish, on a pile of crispy rye breadcrumbs, and the combination of tastes, textures, and temperatures truly was incredible. After …read more

9 Crowd-Pleasing Desserts for Your Memorial Day Party

By Carrie Havranek When it comes to warm weather desserts, there are a few very key considerations:
1. You don’t want something that’s going to get gooey or wilt in some way—it can be surprisingly warm on Memorial Day weekend!
2. You want something that’s easily portable, so fancy things that are perishable, delicate or have elaborate toppings are probably out of the question, too.
3. All that, and it’s got to be delicious and eye-catching, too — right?!

Citrus-Brined Grilled Pork Chops

By Nick Evans Boneless pork chops seem to be a popular grilling option during summer because they are always available and are easy to season and toss on a hot fire.
But they also tend to dry out quickly and are easy to overcook.
That’s why I love this Citrus Brined Pork Chop recipe! The salty sweet brine keeps the pork chops really tender and moist, even if you do accidentally overcook them a few degrees.

Berbere Roasted Pistachios

By Erin Alderson Post sponsored by Frontier Co-op. See below for more details.
One of the things I’m constantly in awe of is how big the snack market is (we’re talking a multi-billion dollar industry). Pretty much anything you could want, there is- even in the natural food space. However, I still like making most of our snacks at home. I can control exactly what goes into them and once you start, it’s really easy to feel inspired.
These pistachios are a family family. These roasted pistachios first came about when I developed a curry version for The Kitchn. We couldn’t stop eating them and …read more
