Recipe: Red Lentil Egg Bake

I love red lentils. They’re so easy to use as they cook quickly and don’t need soaking. They’re also a wonderfully healthy protein source full of fibre, B vitamins, and iron. This Red Lentil Egg Bake has the added benefit of using canned tomatoes and eggs, both nutritious ingredients that I generally have aplenty. I first made this Red Lentil Egg Bake when I was attending a dinner club with a theme of “protein.” When served with rice or naan and a spinach salad it provides a well-rounded meal. I’m not very good at recording recipes, but I was so pleased with this […]

Learn a simple method to make your own healthy beef bone broth.

Making a Simple Beef Bone Broth or Stock

We’ve been raising our own ethical beef since I was a little girl. When we process meat all our leftover bones used to be solely destined for dog treats. I now scavenge them for broth/stock.

Recipe: Coconut Cream of Carrot Soup

Over the winter we don’t get nearly as many fresh vegetables as we do the rest of the year. Besides what is canned, dried or frozen, we only have stored squash and root vegetables. However, even our carrots are starting to look a bit sprouted and sad at this point. With half a sack still unused, and a shortage of vegetables, I decided something delicious and carroty was in order. This resulting recipe was a huge hit! We ate it with fresh buttered bread for a fantastic winter meal. Coconut Cream of Carrot Soup 1/2 Cup coconut oil 1 Tbsp cumin seed […]

Coffee Caramel Creams

Recipe: Coffee Caramel Creams

I first made this recipe for a decadent desserts party that I attended. It was the perfect treat for such an occasion, but it was quite the process and time commitment to make. The results are very rich and flavourful. The caramel shards are a nice touch and they complement the smooth, sweet creams. While there is nothing simple about this recipe, I did use farm eggs, milk and cream and fair-trade organic coffee beans. This recipe is originally out of Food & Drink magazine, but the issue is 2003 and I can’t find it online. Coffee Caramel Creams 1 cup whole milk […]
