Blueberry & Blackberry Crumble. © 2014 Green Kitchen Stories This is a recipe that has been going on repeat all summer in our family.

Blueberry & Blackberry Crumble

It is such a simple and tasty (vegan and gluten-free) dessert that even my dad asked for the recipe so he could bake it himself. And that says a lot, considering that my dad rarely serves any other desserts than ice cream when we are visiting. He has a summer house a bit outside Stockholm and the blueberries are literally flooding the forests around the house this time of the year. We picked the blueberries for this crumble there, which of course makes it taste extra good. We have created this youtube video for the recipe that not only demonstrates how easy it is to prepare, but also gives you a hint of how gorgeous the forest blueberries are when we pick them.

Hey Bacon, You Suck And Sausages Are Better. 18 One-Pot Dinners You Can Make In A Dutch Oven. Autumn Kale Slaw + Movie Night. “Sorry to disturb you young lady, what kind of vegetable are you holding there?”

Autumn Kale Slaw + Movie Night

I was waiting in line at our farmer’s market with curious baby Isac resting on my right arm and two large bunches of green and purple kale on my left and turned around to see the kind old woman that was talking to me. At first I looked down at our little pumpkin, staring at me with his big eyes and cute little hat.

But then I realized that it was the kale she was asking about. I was a bit surprised by the question, as kale has been one of the most hyped ingredients these past couple of years and you can buy it in most food stores now during the autumn. But I quickly woke up from my pompous foodie bubble. So, even though quite a few of you blog readers probably already are using kale in soups, smoothies, batters, bread, salads, pilafs, tomato sauce and as chips, I have realized that there also is a large bunch of people that still haven’t.

Today we are sharing two different ways to eat this superfood. Green Kitchen Travels + Ribollita. Our new book has finally been released in the UK and Australia!

Well… actually, don’t we all? Brownies were the first thing I learned how to bake in the kitchen. My parents kept the flour, sugar, and those gnarly bars of unsweetened chocolate in a little cabinet just within reach of my little 8 year-old body. It only took me one nibble of the unsweetened chocolate to figure out that it was not at all suitable for sneak-snacking… but the box of unsweetened chocolate had step-by-step instructions on how to turn the dark blocks into something entirely delicious, aka BROWNIES! In our house filled with whole wheat fig bars and date rolls, I felt like a wizard… like an actual wizard… because I could make brownies. I still feel like a wizard. There are so many great Fall cookbooks hitting the shelves this year! One of the books I’ve been looking forward to most is The Kitchy Kitchen by Claire Thomas.

Think about it. These brownies have chocolate two ways: unsweetened cocoa powder and melted semi-sweet chocolate. Ingredients. Joy the Baker Baking Bootcamp: Apple Pie Biscuits - Joy the Baker. Baking is all about sharing.

I sauntered (as I do…) past the sweet potatoes in the grocery store last week and they called out to me! I collected an arm load and nestled them in my basket, but wait… whaaat!?

Death By Oreo Cupcakes

A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. 40 Creative Food Hacks That Will Change The Way You Cook.
