Kale Cups Featured Ingredient Kale According to Mitch from Modern Family, “kale should remain more of a garnish.” Uh, no way! If there was ever a food worthy of its superfood moniker, it would be jaunty kale. In fact, it’s so packed with a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it just might be the nutritional heavyweight of the produce department. Sorry, Mr. Among its nutritional highlights includes a payload of vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin K, that latter of which his necessary for strong bones. These pretty green kale cups make for a wonderful side dish. Kale Cups 1 bunch kale, ribs removed and roughly chopped (8 to 10 cups) 1/2 cup reduced fat ricotta cheese 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 shallot, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon miso, preferably white or yellow (optional) 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes (optional) 3 tablespoons sesame seeds

Perfect Iced Coffee Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. Iced coffee is a complicated thing, and there are many different approaches. 1. Given the previous set of facts, one would assume that the logical solution would be to brew hot coffee, then transfer the brew to the fridge, allow it to cool, and use it to make iced coffee from there. There are reasons this method results in a smoother, richer, more delicious concentrate than simply brewing strong coffee and refrigerating it. (Note: I’ve totally adapted/tweaked coffee/water amounts to suit my own tastes. I start with a big ol’ container. You can use a big bowl, a large pitcher…even a really clean bucket will work if you’re going for a huge quantity. Rip open a pound of ground coffee. Glorious.

Weekly piffle ... We had the pleasure of Bri's company last weekend. Here she is making poffertjes ... ... with my strawberry jam - delicious! The cooler weather always makes me want soup so I made a healthy batch from my Annette Sym book... There is no way that this can be bad for you! It really hit the spot for lunch and there was lots left over for the fridge and some to freeze... We are still juicing each morning - I buy juice for the girls when they are home as they don't like our healthy juice - I know which one I prefer There is still fresh beetroot in our supermarkets so I bought another bunch and pickled it. Dinner Thursday night - cauli/brocolli/carrot in cheese sauce, peas, baked potatoes and Wagyu schnitzels with gravy... I made bread rolls on Friday night and they just didn't turn out very good. They weren't really flops, but I have had a better rise from other batches... We had this last night - Lamb Dhansak - it was really delicious - very fragrant with just a bit of a kick! Beautiful, hey?
