I know that zucchini is mainly a summer veggie, but I’m all for going “off season” occasionally, especially if it’s in the name of ease and nutrition. Here is the easiest, quickest version of the “classic” dish. Ingredients: 4 zucchinis, washed but not peeled 1 cup chopped walnuts 3 cloves of garlic, crushed 2 tablespoons […]
Yes, there are only 3 ingredients in this “recipe” and you don’t really need ...
This is the latest in my Easy Vegan series. Two pans, but still super easy. ...
One of my best girlfriends is coming to the ranch today. And the last time ...
In case you haven’t guessed it already, I’m a Virgo. Which means I’m cursed with searching for perfection in everything. My latest search has led to perfection in brown rice. Such a simple thing, you might say, but when made this way it becomes a thing of beauty – really! It does take about […]
I LOVE carne asada marinade. It’s so citrus-y & spicy. And just because I don’t eat carne doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the marinade. I have to say it works on just about all veggies, but mushrooms and tofu are my current faves. Unlike meat, it just takes a short time for the flavors to […]
Maybe because it was St. Patrick’s Day & I’m more than a little Irish… Or maybe it was because the Universe was smiling on me that day… But whatever it was, a few years ago this chili recipe scored me a big win – First Place in the Red Chili Category at the Buellton Wine […]
My garden is overflowing with greens right now, lucky me! I’ve got chard, beet greens and 3 types of kale. I mix them all together in my biggest pan for a colorful dish packed full of nutrition. Here’s what I do to bring out the best in my greens: Ingredients: 8 to 10 cups of […]
I love, adore and crave this sauce. I make a big batch and stash it in my frig to pour over everything from brown rice to steamed veggies to tofu to salad to noodles to….well, everything! Ingredients: 1/2 cup almond butter, crunchy or smooth, your preference 1/3 cup brown rice vinegar 1/4 cup brown rice […]

Ingredients: 1 cup organic, unfiltered apple juice 1 tablespoon kuzu powder 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 1/2 cups cold water Directions: In a small pot, bring the apple juice to […]
I had a another cooking class at the ranch this weekend. I decided to make the class all about gut-healing foods and my go-to gal for all things gut-healing is Mee McCormick. She has a wonderful cookbook (My Kitchen Cure) that I always keep handy. My recipes included lots of Glorious Greens from my garden […]
These brownies are bomb baby! And very low sugar, low glycemic, high yumminess. I like to make these “bite sized” but feel free to cut them any size you like. Ingredients: 1 package chocolate brownie mochi (most health food stores carry it in their refrigerated food section) 1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil powdered […]
So easy, so sugar-free (except what mother nature put in the fruit). Best part is, they taste like banana ice cream! Ingredients: 4 ripe bananas 1 cup orange juice 1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut Here’s all you do: 1. Slice a banana into 1/2″ round pieces 2. Dip each slice in orange juice 3. […]
It took me longer to make that picture fancy than it did to make this soup – and the soup is a lot better! (I’m still working on my “photography/making my blog photos pretty” skills. But I probably didn’t need to tell you that.) Takes about 15 minutes to make & most of that time […]
