Spicy Szechuan Chili Crisp
Calling all spicy food lovers! I adore spicy foods. There’s something about it that makes me feel vital and alive. Besides being positively addicting, capsaicin — the constituent in chili peppers that makes them spicy — confers a number of health benefits.
Allow me to introduce you to your new culinary best friend: Spicy Chili Crisp.
Tips & Tricks for Doing GAPS with Kids
My family decided to embark on a healthier eating journey starting January 1. We committed to healthy homemade dinners every single night, no fast food at all and very minimal eating out. The style of eating we decided on is called the GAPS diet, a gut healing nutritional protocol designed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. Keep reading for some tips and tricks that helped us get the most out of our GAPS diet experience.
Simple Larabar Inspired Date Bars Using Soaked Nuts
Larabars are many a GAPS dieter’s go-to on-the-go snack for a reason. They’re simply made with just a few real-food ingredients. As far as a healthy snack goes, they’re *almost* perfect. I have only a few quibbles…
Preparing for GAPS
There’s no sugarcoating it; GAPS can be pretty darn time consuming and it’s a lot of pressure on the primary preparer of food.
Getting organized and planning and preparing meals and snacks in advance will save your sanity and help you to anticipate pitfalls and temptations that could derail your progress.
Let’s Talk About GAPS
Hippocrates famously stated that “All Disease Begins in The Gut.” Dr. Campbell-McBride would agree! As turns out, the health of your gut determines just about everything else.
GAPS stands for ‘Gut & Psychology Syndrome’ or ‘Gut & Physiology Syndrome’. The basic premise behind the GAPS protocol is that gut health is closely linked to overall health and that improving gut health can help improve all sorts of conditions ranging from allergies to autism, dyslexia to autoimmune disorders (and ALL chronic diseases have an autoimmune component).
Korean Chili Mushroom Jerky
Hi, my name is Kim and I’m addicted to mushroom jerky. Specifically Giorgio’s Savory Wild Sesame, Ginger & Korean Chili Portabella Jerky. Ohmygoodness is it good. But at $7 per 2-ounce bag, it’s a bit hard to justify it beyond an occasional treat.
Then noticed that Azure Standard sells 5-pound flats of organic portabella mushrooms for about $7/pound and it got me thinking… How difficult would it be to duplicate my beloved Korean Chili mushroom jerky? It turns out, not difficult at all.
Spicy Dill *Everything* Rub
There is a hidden gem of a restaurant called The Settlement not far from our home in the neighboring town of Priest River, Idaho. I’ve been all over the world, and I can honestly say they have the best dry rub chicken wings I’ve ever tried.
Mr. Redheaded Herbalist and I love their recipe so much that I took a stab at recreating the spice blend at home.
‘Putting By’ Fermented Garlic for the Winter
It’s that time of year again! Temperatures are finally starting to cool off a bit and leaves are getting their first red and gold tinges, signaling that summer is on its way out the door.
At my house, that also means it’s time to load up on our favorite culinary flavoring, medicinal herb and vampire repellant: fermented garlic.
Giant Garden Zucchini Personal Pizzas
It’s *that* time of year when my garden is going gangbusters producing zucchini and summer squash and we spend two months eating it like it’s going out of style.
In order to keep things interesting and avoid “squash burnout” (it’s a thing), I’ve accumulated a number of recipes over the years incorporating squash in unexpected ways so we don’t get sick of it.
