Begin by baking sweet potatoes, I made a big batch of 8 potatoes and baked at 400 until they were very soft. Remove the skins (not necessary but a safe bet in a larger crowd) and combine with butter salt and milk in a mixing bowl. Taste as you go to find the perfect flavor! Can be served hot or prepared the night before and cold. The chicken salad is a combination of chicken (boiled or rotisserie), cilantro, mashed avocado, walnuts, halved grapes, S&P, olive oil
In one bowl mix 2 c GF flour, 1tsp baking soda, 1tsp baking powder and salt
In a separate bowl mix 1 stick butter with 1/2 c sugar. Next add 2 eggs, 2 Tbsp milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 4-5 ripe mashed bananas. Add chocolate chips and combine both bowls, only stirring until mixed.
This is one of the easiest ways to add flavor. I put a small scoop of coconut oil into a pan with a sliced yellow onion. Simmering until just brown will give it a caramelized flavor- turn the burner down and add some cage free whisked eggs. Be patient! Protein needs to cook slow, eggs should never be rushed.
I made my Cuban coffee by mixing unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup and instant coffee, then adding hot water
Chop peppers and onions and add EVOO salt and pepper and make a tinfoil basket for them, then grill for a few minutes on each side. Bake asparagus with olive oil in oven at 400 for 12 min (if you have meat to cook, this conserves grill space). Peel sweet corn and brush with melted butter salt and pepper, then grill on low for a few min- rotating often. I just learned this way of cooking corn, it caramelize sand is delicious.
Who can complain about fresh picked tomatoes, motz, basil salt and pepper? Also, put some cuke slices out with salt!
This fruit bowl uses goat milk yogurt, peaches, banana, chia seeds and ground flax
I picked this squash at the Lawrence Family farm in Newbergh, NY. Slice into thick pieces, heat the oven to 450, cover squash with EVOO S&P and bake until they just start to look brown
BLT. Bacon Lettuce Tomato. We used to eat these on Sunday growing up. I found an awesome healthy mayo, used Boars head thick bacon, ripe tomatoes, Mashable avocado and romaine lettuce. And for bread my go-to Ezekiel sprouted toast
