In our What’s For Dinner segment, Marisa talks through the recipe for braised chicken, green peppers, onions and tomatoes that she made recently. It’s one her mom used to make and tasted like childhood to her.
In How’d You Make That, Joy shares a roasted lemon relish she made recently as a way of using up some organic lemons that were going south.
Then we talked about making treats and other kitchen staples to stock the freezer.
Finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s all about ranch dressing.
Joy felt called by the universe to make a specific Melissa Clark recipe, Sesame Chicken with Cashews and Dates, from her book Dinner. It was good! You can find the recipe here.
Marisa walks us through her master recipe for granola, which is: 3 cups rolled oats, 1 1/2 cups seeds and nuts. ½ cup sweetener (honey, maple, brown rice syrup, etc) and ¼ cup oil. Pinch of salt and some spices if you’d like. Mix and bake on a parchment lined baking sheet a 300°F/149°C for 25-35 minutes, stirring every ten or so.
Many people are taking a cue from Marie Kondo and tossing belongings that fail to spark joy. We try that out on our recipes and cookbooks.
And what are we loving this week? It’s cashew butter.
Hi friends! You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here. We had every intention of picking the show back up with the new year, but life has gotten in our way a bit.
Marisa has been down with a cold since December 30 and Joy has had some family stuff going on that requires the bulk of her attention. We hope to be back with the show by January 23, but we’re not making any promises. Thank you for being so patient with us.
In the meantime, may we suggest that you check out the ebook we published around this time last year? Resolution Recipes is a collection of plant-based, make ahead dishes that will help you eat well in the new year.
