Kukicha Tea

I love to prepare and serve this tea to my kids on the freezing cold blizzardy-white-out days we get here in Calgary. The wind moves to the north-east and we get stuck in a weather pattern of bone chilling temperatures and lead grey, snow storms for three or four days at a time. Soul destroying in Province where we love our wide blue skies both in summer and winter. Kukicha, or twig tea, is made by brewing the twigs and stems of the...

Powerhouse Salad with Turmeric Croutons

This is not a recipe to be followed slavishly but an invitation to improvise with whatever grows green and fresh in your area during the winter months.

Carbs are reduced, by making...

Cabbage and Kohlrabi Salad

At the Calgary Farmers Market I can buy the most beautiful locally grown kohlrabi. They are large, tough skinned, pale green and a little bit intimidating. Inside their tough outer layer however lies a crunchy fresh apple-y vegetable that is certainly appreciated in the dark days of winter. I love to chop half into matchsticks that I package into lunchboxes with local carrots and cherry tomatoes, the other half I grate into a big dish...
