Eat to Live. Cook to Love.

Eat to Live. Cook to Love.
If Taylor were to start his own food blog, it would most definitely, without a doubt, be about sandwiches. Or, maybe beer and sandwiches. But definitely sandwiches. However, since having two food blogs in one family is certifiably unpractical, we’ve decided to give him a space on this blog to share his love of sandwiches (aka good things between bread). This will be the first in a monthly series we are calling Taylor’s Sandwich Club. While the recipes may be simple, he loves learning the history and stories behind his favorite classic sandwiches.

It’s huge, of course - anywhere from 2.5kg to 5kg - so the challenge then is two-fold: how do you portion and store it well, and how many ways can you cook it so you never get bored eating salmon? We’ve taken to buying it whole once a month whenever we come across really fresh salmon at the supermarket. It makes for nutritious and healthy meals without really breaking the bank. Do the maths: salmon fillets usually go for $3.50 per 100g, but the whole fish is sold only at $1.40 per 100g, which is easily 2.5 times cheaper by weight.

Joy the Baker — I feel like I’m grasping tight to the things around me these days. I’m probably the first to shrug off the change of season, the change of moving cities, and the change of traveling a ton as no big deal…. but it all adds up to matter and I have to admit I feel a little crazy in the brain. This season I’ve started a new workout routine. Since I’ve moved away from my beloved SoulCycle in California, I’ve started practicing Bikram Yoga in New Orleans. Le voyage créatif This July I met up with Annette Joseph in her amazing apartment in Italy for a little summer get-together with cooking, eating and dancing on the agenda. If you know Annette Joseph from before, then you know she knows how to throw a party and make it all look oh-so effortlessly, she is a food and lifestyle stylist after all with years of experience under the belt for magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens, and is an lifestyle and entertainment expert on the Today show. My lucky part was to be able to watch her work her magic up close and personal, enjoy heartfelt and fun conversation along the way, and play with my camera. It was such a treat to spend time in her company. It´s always so inspiring to have conversations between women, to hear their life wisdom, how they make their relationship work after many years of marriage, to listen to their life stories and to learn from their creative journey, how they began their career to where they are now.

Real Baking with Rose Levy Beranbaum Mar 15, 2014 | From the kitchen of Rose in Epicurious When Woody and I visited Hector Wong in Hawaii, a year ago December, we discovered what a great savory cook he is as well as a baker. One of the many dishes that he made for us from his Peruvian roots I knew I would have to replicate on our return home. It is called salsa criolla, and is served as a condiment for every dish, akin to kimchee for Koreans or ketchup for Americans. It also works well as a salad.

sweet God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you And whispered “Come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A Golden Heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. I warn you now, this is going to be a sad post. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams Jeni Britton Bauer Before Jeni began making ice creams, she studied art at The Ohio State University, worked in a bakery, and had a serious hobby blending perfumes and collecting essential oils. It was the perfect foundation for a would-be ice cream maker. Jeni left college to do her own thing from scratch, opening Scream Ice Cream in 1996 in Columbus, Ohio’s North Market. This would set the foundation for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams’ opening there in 2002. Today, Jeni and our kitchen team makes every ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt from the ground up with grass-grazed milk, local produce, American bean-to-bar chocolate and select ingredients from around the world, including exquisite Fair-Trade-Certified African vanilla and Dutch cocoa.

stonesoup — 5 ingredient recipes The first time I tried going paleo there was one meal I really struggled with. If you’ve ever had an attempt at eating low carb or going ‘full paleo’, I bet you’ve struggled with this too. Yep. Breakfast. Breakkie. Now I think about it, when I went vegan for a week, breakfast was the most tricky then too. Carrot Banana Bread Carrot Banana Bread As a baby I had carotenaemia. Daily, my parents fended off incessant inquiries from prying cashiers and worried neighbors. Every conversation eventually led to a reluctant explanation of why their chubby little baby was orange. I liked carrots – well, carrot baby food. I liked it so much so the elevated levels of carotene in my blood turned my skin a delightfully comedic shade of orange.
