Fennel Sausage Skillet

Friday, October 24th, 2014

While stalking the Bountiful Baskets Facebook page this weekend, I noticed we have some clear lines drawn when it comes to fennel:

1) People who like it and are armed with scrumptious recipe ideas
2) People who weren’t familiar at all with it (what is this leafy, green, dill-looking, celery looking thing?)
3) People who gave their fennel away because they don’t like black licorice

The good news is you don’t have to be number three. Just because you (like me) don’t like black licorice doesn’t mean you won’t like fennel. I adore it and once it is cooked, it doesn’t have a hint of black licorice or I’d give it away at pickup. This recipe is so comforting and cooks up in one pan. I think you’ll find this recipe is a delicious way to move yourself up to number one.

Fennel, Tomato and Sausage Soup

Friday, October 24th, 2014

I love to share my fennel recipes because fennel is one of those things that gets a lot of confused looks at pickup.  I think that fennel is especially yummy in Italian recipes so I whipped up this soup on a recently fall evening.  As soon as weather gets cooler AT ALL, I fully embrace it.  Considering I live in Central Texas, these “fall days” are sparse but glorious.  This came together really quickly, so it worked well at my house on a week night.

Spicy Coconut Kissed Egg Rolls with Dipping Sauce Trio

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

 
One of my favorite add-ons is the Asian Pack!  It always gives me the excuse to make up a big batch of stir fry.  Today I wanted to do something different. Why not egg rolls! Simple enough, as all I needed were the wrappers. These egg rolls receive their heat from the dried Chiles de árbol in the pack.  The coconut kiss, is a result of the rolls being fried in Bountiful Baskets scented organic Coconut Oil. Trust me, my house smelled amazing all day! (more…)

Irish Bell Pepper Eggs

Monday, March 17th, 2014

If you slice a bell pepper across the width into 1/2 inch slices, they form a shamrock! I heated eggs in the center of each bell pepper slice and it made a surprising morning breakfast. What a wonderful way to make eggs and vegetables a star for a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast! (more…)

Colcannon

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Have you ever eaten Colcannon?  It is a wonderful creamy combination of mashed potatoes, shredded cabbage or kale, and oozing butter.  It is often associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but it is a warm and hearty dish for any day! (more…)

Irish Shepherd’s Pie

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

There is nothing more comforting than Irish Shepherd’s Pie.  This traditional Irish recipe has been handed down for generations in our family.  We make this dish year round but it is a great recipe for St. Patrick’s Day instead of corned beef and cabbage.   It is commonly made with ground lamb but you can use ground turkey or beef instead.  It is a wonderful way to add some vegetables to your dinner.  You can top it off with leftover mashed potatoes or Colcannon.  True comfort food with warmth, heartiness, and love!

Ratatouille

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Here’s a fun festive little dish I use when cleaning out my fridge after Bountiful Baskets.  It’s just two of us, so I don’t necessarily go through as much of the food as we should as quickly as we should.  I love how pretty this is sitting on the table…. and even more than that I love how it looks like a rainbow when I take it to work for lunch all chilled and cool the next morning.

Green Juice is NOT Scary!

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Green juice does not have to be scary! My mind tends to see green and go straight to yuck, but the trick is to add an extra organic green apple or make it red by adding an organic beet, leaves too! Try to limit the beet and apple… while it will sweeten your juice, remember there is sugar in sugar in there. Green juices detoxify, give you iron and magnesium when you use kale, chard and dark leafy greens.
