Smoothie Saturday is back!
I am back from business trip / vacation, and all I want are All The Vegetables. I just spent a week in San Francisco, and while I ate some awesome freshness, I also spent several days walking the Fancy Food Show, sampling, eating, sampling, drinking!
I also made some new friends.
In the days since I have been back home, I have made some glorious salads. Some veggie stuffed wraps. And a smoothie or a juice every morning.
My slideshow for January is just that – twelve nutrient packed smoothie and juice recipes.

We have had some very cold weather in Portland this month, and crazy foggy days! It was a perfect time for me to be working with Alexia Foods, because I got to make all kinds of tasty warm dishes while creating recipes with their product. Roasted Crinkle Cut Fries for lunch while it is zero degrees with wind chill outside? Yes please and thank you!
I am excited to be sharing a new queso recipe with you today. My Sriracha Peach Queso is new because I am only just now sharing it, but we have been enjoying this since summer. When I had fresh peaches. Very slightly sweet when you get a small bite of peach, with a spicy heat that you control. Start small with the sriracha, or boldy add several tablespoons if you love it like we do.

One whole week of whiskey – congratulations everyone, we made it through!
I really feel like I saved the best for last with these bowls. Serious comfort bowls, but it is all good stuff, you know? I have been eating these for lunch all week.
The exact same bowl, every day. It’s that kind of lunch that I will sometimes eat early because I have been thinking about it since breakfast. I love those kind of lunches. These bowls are brightly colored and vibrantly flavored – comfort food that satisfies but does not leave you needing a nap. [click to continue…]
I am loving Whiskey Week, glad you all are too!
Jason and I were out at a holiday party last night, and there was a bar set up for whiskey tasting. How perfect is that – we tasted a few good ones, and I am going to hunt one down. I may have to extend Whiskey Week…
This recipe has been made before.
Actually, I have made this several times. The first couple? Too sticky sweet. Oops. The first batch had to be chiseled away from the pan, like I was making hard candy lollypops alongside the tofu. Reducing sugar, adding [click to continue…]
I am way too excited about this recipe.
because of THIS:
So Delicious recently released a coconut based whip topping, and it is good. I was able to preview a bunch of their new product and holiday seasonal items (fun stuff coming soon!), and this Coco Whip is what I was most excited about. You can find this in stores now. I have two tubs for this week alone.
Before this even landed on my doorstep, I knew exactly what I would make.
Growing up, our holiday table always included a jello salad.
Now, I have that same question many ask – why is this called salad?
Whatever it was originally called, back then it was my favorite. I have updated the original recipe from my Grandma Z, adding a pretzel shortbread crust and … well I don’t call it salad.

Yesterday we had some weather come through.
I woke up at 5, ran down the stairs with Rosemary, looked out the window to see a yard covered in white.
The snow was all gone by 9.
A non event, really. A media storm.
Friends in higher elevations had several inches of snow, lasting all day long. I ventured outside with my camera, but never drove – so the clicking of freezing rain I heard all day actually could have been something. We stayed safely inside.
I made soup.
