Cheesy Chive & Goat Milk Biscuits

Hello everyone and welcome,

 

Today, I wanted to try my hand at making a nice, cheesy and savory biscuits. Now when I told my friend about using goat’s milk in the recipe……she immediately let me know her displeasure for goats milk. I was even discouraged by the sales clerk from buying it. I had and idea in my mind and I wanted to try it out and see for myself. Thank goodness I listened to my own inner voice because these biscuits were delicious. My family devoured them and I was in total surprise because they’re some seriously picky individuals.  Trying new things with them can be a bit of a challenge but I try in spite of the challenges.

 

Since the recipe was such a success I had to share it with you. So let’s just dive right in shall we.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups organic spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 4 tablespoons (frozen) unsalted grass-fed or organic butter, cut into small cubes
  • 6 ounces sharp white cheddar, shredded or cut into tiny pieces ( or cheese of choice)
  • 1 cup goat milk ( I used one tablespoon of goat milk powder mixed in 1 cup water.)
  • 1/4 cup chopped organic chives
  • 1/4 cup organic dried parsley
  • Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Using a spatula fold the butter into flour mixture until butter is incorporated throughout. Stir in cheese, parsley, and chives until everything is evenly distributed. Then add goat milk and stir just until dough comes together.

  3. Using ice cream scoop, drop dough onto prepared baking sheets and space 2 inches apart.

  4. Bake in the oven until golden brown, about 12-14 minutes, rotating baking sheets once.

Blackstrap Molasses Natural Cures

Hello everyone and welcome,

Are you looking for simple and easy ways to get more nutrients in your daily regimen?  Organic Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses may just be a simple solution to help. I stumbled upon a great article that gives you all the in’s and out’s on Blackstrap Molasses. It even offers helpful suggestions that may benefit those with diabetes.

I hope you find this information just as beneficial as I have.

Adding 1 Tbsp of Organic Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses has been a great way for me to naturally increase my potassium intake. I really struggle trying to get 4,700 Mg of potassium, which is the daily recommended value.

Depending on the brand you buy molasses can have anywhere from 110-730 Mg in just 1 tablespoon. Not to mention all of its many other nutrients and benefits which you can find out more about below.

Vegan Carrot Cake

Hello everyone and welcome,

I decided to try my hand at making my favorite dessert Carrot Cake. I tried my hand at Carrot Cake a few years ago……it did not go well. In fact, after it baked, cooled and was taste tested it went right into the garbage.  So, today I set out to redeem myself. I can’t have my daughter’s teasing me about my 1st Carrot Cake fail forever….LOL.

Since I am trying to cut back on traditional wheat and use more ancient grains like Spelt I thought I would try using it in Carrot cake. I love how light this flour is. It’s still wheat….just a different type.

Spelt has not been manipulated to meet manufacturing needs. Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated grains tracing is roots more than 6,000 years back to ancient Mesopotamia. Spelt has kept many of its original characteristics which provide an impressive nutritional profile, along with ease of digestibility leading to anti-inflammatory qualities. For more information check out the source I referenced here.

This recipe is very versatile. You can make a cake, loaf or muffins. Top with icing, powdered sugar, streusel topping, or no topping at all. Having options is a great thing!

Alright…..let’s dive right into the recipe.
Ingredients:

2 C organic Spelt Flour or AP

2  1/2 C organic shredded carrots

1 C organic unsweetened applesauce

1  1/4 C organic cane sugar

1/2 C avocado oil ( or oil of choice)

1/2 C organic raisin

1  1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp organic cinnamon powder

1 tsp organic nutmeg

1/2 tsp organic ground clove

1/2 tsp organic ground ginger

1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan salt

2 tsp organic vanilla extract

Streusel Topping (optional)

1/ 4 C organic spelt flour ( or AP)

1/3 C organic brown sugar (DIY HERE)

1/4 tsp organic nutmeg

1/2 tsp organic cinnamon

3 tsp organic vegetable shortening

Combine everything together to get at nice crumbled streusel topping.

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease a 9-inch cake, loaf or muffin pan.
  2. Mix together the (dry ingredients) flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together (wet ingredients) applesauce, sugar and vanilla extract.
  4. Add in the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. Fold in the carrots and raisins.
  5. Sprinkle your streusel topping across the top Bake 9-inch cake 35-45 minutes, loaf pan 1hr-1hr 15 minutes, and muffins 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let it rest for about 10 minutes before removing the from the pan.

 

Oh and yes…..I did redeem myself. Now my daughters can leave their jokes in the past, this recipe was truly a winner.

I hope you will give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as my family and I do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Warm Citrus Quinoa Sweet Potato & Kale Salad

Hello everyone,

Welcome to……..

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png

I was looking to try out something light, yet filling. I’d been craving something with savory and citrus flavors. Since this craving would not leave my mind I had to get in the kitchen and create something to remedy it. Now you all know that my kid’s are SUPER PICKY…..so who know’s how this is going to go over with them. But hey every now and again I deserve for it to be about ME and my taste buds.

With that being said………let’s dive in.

(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

Ingredients

  • 1 large organic sweet potato
  • 1 cup organic quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons organic garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper
  • Juice of 2 organic limes
  • 3 teaspoons liquid amino
  • 2 cups of organic kale (cut into bite size pieces)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper ( I am all about easy clean up.)
  2. Peel and chop the sweet potato in small, bite-sized pieces. Drizzle a teaspoon of your oil over the sweet potatoes. Toss to coat. Place your sweet potatoes on your baking sheet and roast for 20 – 25 minutes until tender, stirring half way through so as not to burn them.
  3. While my sweet potatoes are cooking, cook your quinoa according to package instructions.
  4. Once your sweet potatoes and quinoa are done just set aside and allow them to cool while we continue on.
  5. In a skillet over medium heat add your remaining oil, then kale, seasonings, and liquid amino. You’re going to sautee for 3-5 minutes until your kale is tender and fully incorporated with all your flavor’s.
  6. In a large bowl add your quinoa, kale, sweet potatoes, and lime juice. Gently toss to get everything evenly mixed and fully incorporated with all the flavor’s.

This recipe was surprisingly a big hit with my kid’s……who used say that they don’t like quinoa or sweet potatoes. Until now that is. I think it’s the savory and citrus flavor’s together that won them over. Whatever the reason I’m just happy that those picky taste buds enjoyed this as much as I did.

Organic Green Onion and Chive Corn Fritters

Hello everyone,

Welcome to…….

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png

I was looking to try something new for breakfast. Sometimes you just get tired of the same old thing. Since my taste buds were craving something a little sweet and savory I decide to give corn fritters a try. Boy oh boy, these were some kind of good. The flavors took me back in time to my childhood. Back to when my parents would take my brother and I, to Chesapeake Bay Seafood House. They served the best seafood and hush puppies and these fritters were very reminiscent of those delicious hush puppies.

Let’s get started so you can taste for yourself…….

(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 Tablespoons avocado oil (or oil of choice)
  • 1 cup organic medium ground yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 cup organic amaranth flour  (all purpose will work also)
  • 1 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 4 Tablespoons organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup organic non-dairy milk of your choice
  • 2 teaspoon organic white distilled vinegar
  • 1/4 cup organic corn (optional)
  • 1/4 cup organic green onion
  • 1/4 cup organic green chives

METHOD:

  1. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.
  2. Add the vinegar to your non-dairy milk and mix.
  3. Add the oil, non-dairy milk mixture and applesauce to your dry ingredients and stir to combine.  Next, add the corn, green onion, and chives a mix to evenly distribute. Let the batter sit for 2-3 minutes so that the batter puffs up from the baking powder.
  4. Place some oil in a frying pan and heat over medium heat. Once the oil heats, spoon 1/4 cup of batter into the pan.
  5. Cook the fritters for about 3-5 minutes on each side. It’s time to flip them when the edges look done and there are some bubbles in the middle. Repeat until all the batter is gone.image

Jumbo Vegan Ginger Molasses Cookies

Hello everyone,

Welcome to…………

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png

This recipe was inspired by my mother. She shared a story from her childhood with me about her and her older sister. They would each get 10 cents as allowance money from their parents. She said that from time to time they would get 25 cents and when they did they would feel like the riches, girls in the world.

They would take their allowance money and head to the local country store and treat themselves to Ginger and Molasses cookies which were 2 for 1 cent, a soda, and peanuts. Walk down the road and sit on the steps outside the church they attended and enjoy their treats all to themselves. I love the way my mom lit up as she told me that sweet little story.

So, I decided to try and replicate one of her favorite childhood special treats with my own little twist!

Let’s dive into the recipe…..

1/4 C organic cane sugar

1/4 C organic un-sulphured blackstrap molasses

1/2 C organic applesauce

Method:

This recipe yields 12 jumbo cookies.

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°
  3. In a medium bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, ginger, clove and cinnamon. (Set aside for now.)
  4. In a large bowl and using a hand or stand mixer cream together shortening, sugars, applesauce, and molasses. Mix until smooth and combined.
  5. Add your flour mixture a little at a time. Use your mixer on the lowest speed to combine. Repeat until all of the flour mixture is evenly combined and your dough is formed.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop your dough onto your cookie sheet. Space them 2″ apart. Press the cookies slightly using the back of your ice cream scoop. *Optional you can sprinkle a little cane sugar.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.  Allow them to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to completely cool for an additional 10- 15 minutes.

image

Let’s get right into it……..

Ingredients:

(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

2-3 lbs of organic chicken wings or wingettes (clean and dry them and place in a large bowl)

1/2 C of honey

1/3 C Organic Miso Paste ( I used Miso Master’s Organic White Miso)

1 tsp Amino Acid or low sodium soy sauce (I use Bragg Amino Acid Liquid)

Herbs and spice (* combine the following in a small bowl and mix to evenly combine)

1 tsp organic granulated garlic powder and granulated onion powder

1/2 tsp of organic ground ginger and black pepper

Avocado Oil (or any other oil than can be cooked at a temp of 450°or higher)

image

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 450°

2. Line a baking sheet or 2 with parchment (for easy clean up)

3. In a large bowl add your honey, miso, and amino acid. Stir until smooth and combined and set aside for now.

4. Add your herbs and spices to the chicken, toss to evenly coat each piece evenly.

5. Place your chicken on the baking sheet(s) making sure they are not touching and have enough space.  Drizzle a bit of oil over the wings ( we want to get a nice crisp skin on the chicken.)

6. Bake in your 450° preheated, oven for 35-40 minutes. Your chicken should be golden brown.

7. Once the chicken is cooked through and golden, remove it from the oven and add the chicken in the miso and honey sauce bowl.  Toss the wings to get them evenly coated with the sauce.

8. Place the wing back onto the baking sheets and place them back into the oven for 2-3 minutes to let the sauce thoroughly adhere to the chicken.

9. Remove from the oven. Allow to cool and enjoy!
