Cheese Toasties

Cheese Toasties

No seriously. Cheese Toasties. That’s right. I can’t get my son to eat sandwiches and my faded memories of grilled cheese sandwiches are 2 slices of white bread swimming in butter and Velveeta (shudder shudder). We had a play date this week with Mary and Caleb, and it’s always the way: you revisit old favorites with friends and bring the dishes back to your family menu. Well, maybe you’re a clever bunny and I’m a fluffy bunny, but I forgot about their moreish simplicity of melted cheese on bread. What’s more, you can posh them up with a rub of fresh garlic, a smattering of pesto, or quince chutney (ooh). Ooh, a spoon of Branston pickle in the mix might rock too. For kids, it’s smart to keep it simple, playing with high quality organic ingredients: 12 grain bread, mature cheddar, and unsalted butter (there’s enough sodium in the bread and cheese). For my friends that are asking “where’s the green stuff,” Remember, you can always put a little salad on the side, or if you’re kids are averse to all things green, try the kid’s green smoothie in the previous post. That’ll work a treat.   Cheese Toasties 12 slices of [...]

Stardust Sandwich

Stardust Sandwich

  This sandwich satisfies all of my favorite cravings: creamy avocado, spiced hummus, crispy lettuce and carrot, and crusty whole grain bread. All I can say is that it’s heaven in a sandwich. Why did I name it the Stardust Sandwich? Today was one of those picture perfect California days, so Toby, Jake, and I went to the beach. The sun was shining, the ocean glistened, and the sand was toasty under my feet. Intoxicated by the natural beauty, I started singing “Woodstock” to myself, loving the lines, “we are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.” I have no idea why the song popped into my head, but I rolled with it and thanked the universe for the inspiration. Stardust Sandwich 3 medium carrots, grated 3 cups organic mixed lettuce leaves 1/2 cups raw pine nuts 3-4 tomatoes, sliced 2 cups Holy Guacamole (recipe below) 2 cups Heavenly Hummus (recipe below) sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. 12 slices whole grain bread 1. Make the hummus. Put into a bowl, wrap with cling film, and chill in the fridge. Make the guacamole. Put into a bowl, wrap with cling film, and chill [...]

Vegan California Roll

Vegan California Roll

What a beautiful morning in Laurel Canyon. After a week of rain, we are back to clear skies, powder puff clouds, and the gentle breeze of canyon living. Our yard is absolutely singing with gratitude from the 7-day drench of moisture. Here are some snaps taken this morning.   Welcome to the jungle Blooming Bouganvilla The jasmine is jumping   Dappled sunlight Laurel Canyon glow After Hot Cross buns and orange marmalade and a few too many chocolate Easter eggs last week, I thought it would be nice to lighten up with some sushi. Vegan California Roll  is my favorite lunch of choice because it’s a cinch to make it leaves you  feeling light and breezy. The only preparation that the recipe requires is to cook a cup or two of short grain brown rice, and slice up a few vegetables. Add some pickled ginger and wasabi, and you’re ready to roll. Vegan California Roll 2 cups cooked short grain brown rice 2 carrots, cut into long matchsticks 1 medium size cucumber sliced into long strips 1 avocado, peeled, seeded, and sliced 5 sheets roasted nori seaweed pinch of sea salt 2 tablespoon of organic sugar 2 tablespoon brown rice [...]

Almond Butter Banana Jammin’ Sandwich

It’s amazing how life comes full circle, that is, when you get to my age (don’t ask, won’t tell). I was eight years old when my foster mother introduced me to the wonderful world of cooking, and I will be forever grateful. When you cook, you’re giving love, and you feel the love and appreciation in return. Seriously, you have no idea how many brownie points one can rack up, even with the slightest gift in this department. If you’re here, I’m almost positive you’re in on this one too. If you’re wondering how I can just brush off the whole foster child thing, it has been one of the biggest gifts in my life. Let’s just say I’m a glass “half full” kind of gal. Yes, yes, it is sad, but look on the bright side: If it hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t be here, making organic almond butter banana jammin’ sandwiches for you. They are jammin’ by the way, and kids love them. Something yummy tucked into a lunch box might soften the blow of going back to school. This is precisely the reason why you tune in, to witness my superb culinary contributions to the world. Just imagine if Julia Child had been my foster [...]

Veggie Wraps with Thai Coconut, Lime, and Cilantro Dressing

Veggie Wraps with Thai Dressing are the rescue remedy to the ubiquitous sliced veggie party plate served with Ranch or French Onion dip. Don’t get me wrong. I understand the dilemma. As a nightmare vegetarian guest, I have wreaked havoc on many a dinner host, leaving them to wonder what the hell to serve the veggie crackpot of the family (may I offer my sincerest sympathy to all concerned, even if it’s 20 years too late). On the flipside of this, in the last 10 years, the abundance and availability of organic produce makes preparing vegetarian fare easy, and best of all, simple. Your body will thank you, and your guests will no doubt be impressed. This one’s a done deal. Who hasn’t cut vegetables into matchsticks?? If you can “schmear” a bagel, you can “schmear” a collard leaf (not to worry. there’s room for both if you eat well). How cool are you going to look by serving these chic mini wraps at your party? Say no more. Then, the surprise of a tasty, zingy, and dairy free Thai dip. Made by you, Devil.    Veggie Wraps with Coconut, Lime, and Cilantro Dressing 3 cups of each: carrot, red cabbage, [...]

Mediterranean Sandwich

What a busy week. Toby and I have been waiting for 3 months to hear back from the bank on our short sale property. It’s been agonizing. Initially, our agent told us that it was the price that the bank was looking for, so it would only be a matter of weeks to wrap up the deal. Worst case scenario, we would be in the house by July 1st. Fast forward to three months later, Toby and I have all but given up on the house. It’s not that we won’t eventually move in, but all the waiting gives you time to reconsider. Quite simply, there’s time to split hairs over your feelings over a property. After visiting open houses every Sunday,  you think, “Hmm, this is quite nice, and I could be in the house in less than 45 days!”  As we ventured back out, no houses caught our eye, which at the time proved to us that we had made the “right” decision on the first house. Then BAM, we found a lovely alternative. It had been on the market for six months, and every room was a riot of red, yellow, and blue, with leopard and zebra [...]
