Sweet Treat Recipe: Saltine Toffee with Walnuts & Hemp Hearts

IMG_0055

We made four batches of this over the holidays to package and give as gifts. It’s a crowd pleaser, it’s super easy to prepare and keeps well in the fridge when made in advance. Adapted from Rachel Ray’s “Crazy Addictive” variation, we opted to use all organic ingredients and “superfood” toppings. Continue reading

Higher Love

James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of Higher Love is incredibly haunting and beautiful.

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel the love come over me
Let me feel how strong it can be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love, oh
Bring me a higher love
I could rise above for this higher love.

Gorgeous & Edible – Chalk Board Mag’s raw flower cake recipe

I love it when food is both gorgeous, delicious and nourishing for all 5 senses! This recipe caught my eye immediately. I love the use of vibrant, edible flowers and the layering effect with the crust, filling and topping. Loaded with a few anti-inflammatory heavy weights, I can’t wait to try it for the next special occasion. I’m curious to see how the crust will stand up to soaking (of the raw almonds and seeds – always soak your nuts and seeds, Friends!)…my mouth is watering thinking of the combination of lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla bean, raw honey and fresh fruit.

We’re in this together.

meganmiller-inthistogetherHump day illustration inspiration…I can’t remember exactly where I found this one but the file is called “megan miller in this together”. I love this little drawing and it’s so true. When life is as busy and full as it is, or even when it’s spacious and joyful, I’m always, always so glad we’re in this together. It reminds me of the last two stanzas of Lama Tsongkapa’s Source of All My Good: Continue reading

Make it: Simple Sriracha

ImageAt home, my sweetheart and I usually opt for foods that are less refined, more wholesome or somehow better for the environment. But when it comes to certain specialty items, like condiments, we can’t always find great substitutes.

Hot sauce is at the top of this list. Every so often we’ve been spoiled with home-made hot sauce (from my lovely friends at Three Sister’s Organic Farm) but we’ve mostly resorted to cooking with high quality cayenne instead. (It’s really not the same.)

So when I came across this amazing looking recipe for home-made sriracha today on The Chalkboard, I got so excited. 5 simple ingredients, a short fermentation period and no preservatives – this is looking like it may become a staple in our household especially when the cooler season sets in. Yum!
