How to Cure Olives

The bright green olives arrived in a box.  Super Colosal Sevillanos from California, just picked.  Fresh olives are in season in the fall and are available to purchase online if you don't happen to live near an olive grove.  This is a fun project you can do with your whole family.

Prawn Ceviche Verde with Tomatillos

The star of this recipe is the tomatillo.  Covered in a delicate paper-like husk, the bright green tomatoey looking fruit may go completely unnoticed, unless you happen to pick one up and take a closer look under its skin.

Haven't you found with most things, people too for that matter,  that when you stop and really pay attention, and look deeply, it's pretty impossible to not see beauty.

Coconut Almond Granola and Homemade Yogurt

with Homemade Yogurt and Fresh Berries

I love this granola. It is heavy on the almonds, seeds and coconut,  and light on the actual oats, packing it full of healthy proteins keeping  me feeling fueled and energized all day long.  It's vegan, gluten free and not overly sweet, like some tend to be.  It also works wonders for a sluggish digestive system. Topped with homemade Greek style yogurt and fresh berries, it's addicting. And the best part is, it can be made in large batches and it will keep for weeks. For this recipe, go to the bulk bin section of your grocery store and load up on nuts, seeds, oats, and dried fruit. This would be fun project to make with your kids.You can follow this recipe or change it to your own preferences keeping similar proportions.
