Delicious and Nutritious homemade Guacamole recipe

Guacamole is a delicious & nutritious (ha, that rhymes) avocado-based dip that originated in central Mexico back in the day of the Aztecs who reigned between the 14th to 16th centuries.

Our guacomole is made up of Avocado, Sea Salt, White Onion, Tomato, Lime, Coriander and Cumin (shown in powder form)

Guacamole is sometimes pegged as a food to avoid as it is high in calories and fat, good fat, but fat all the same. But, we need good Read More Willy B Mum

Carrot Apple Gluten-Free Muffins made with Blue Hill Savory Yogurt

Blue Hill has dairy in its roots. Blue Hill Farm—our family farm in the Berkshires, and the original inspiration for our Blue Hill restaurant in New York City and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, NY—was a working dairy from the 1860s through the 1960s. Three decades later, we refurbished the farm and brought the dairy back to life — Blue Hill Farm

5 flavors; which is your favorite?

We love the idea of forward-thinking New York based Blue Hill Farm’s new savory yogurt line. When they reached out to send us their 100% grass-fed (and hay) sampling we were a tad besides ourselves with excitement! These vibrant yogurts, which are naturally sweetened, come in 5 flavors; parsnip, tomato, carrot, sweet potato and Read More Willy B Mum

Home Baked Miso Glazed Tofu Cubes

One of Miles Storm’s favorite snacks is our Home Baked Miso Glazed Tofu Cubes. They are very easy and fast to make.

Make your very own Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce

Have you looked at the ingredients in a jar of commercial processed tomato sauce lately?

All food that is processed has preservatives added to it to keep a long shelf life, and let’s not forget that most jarred tomato sauces are also heavy-handed with unnecessary amounts of sugar, salt and oils. Call me crazy but I just Read More Willy B Mum
