Green Juice

One of the easiest take-aways from my experience at the Wild Food Retreat with Katrina Blair was the practice of drinking 2 green juices a day. Before I eat my breakfast I have a simple, quick green juice and again later while I am preparing dinner.  I always made drinking a green beverage so complicated…

WILD PLANT RETREAT

I just returned from an amazing retreat in the La Plata mountains near Durango, Colorado with my youngest son and 4 other women that I did not previously know.  Our host and teacher was the wild food foraging expert, Katrina Blair.  I cannot begin the articulate the vast amount of information that Katrina shared with…

I was craving a hearty bowl of soup on this gorgeous April day.  Soup is the perfect comfort food.  It warms, fills and bursts with aromatic flavor.  My daughter and I browsed through various cook books in search of the winning recipe.  The following recipe was taken from Danielle Walker’s cook book, Against all Grain.…

Albóndigas

This recipe is based on Mexican meatball stew, however I have made changes and modifications over the years – it is definitely not authentic.  My favorite chilies are ancho and chipotle so these are what I use, but feel free to use your favorite chilies. I always use 100% organic, grass-fed, humanely raised meats and…

Blender Bev Day 10

This has honestly been the easiest and most rewarding self experiment I have ever done, and I have done many.  I would say that this is a sad day because it is the official last day, but it isn’t because I will continue to make these as often as I like.  The great news is…
