My life has changed completely when it comes to soup stock. I’ve made a few batches of this now, most recently included a Chinook salmon head from when I won a free salmon from Cascade Organic, LLC here in Portland!

Cascade Organic is proud to work with local family fisherman and Native Americans to provide the freshest seafood available!
I’ll be posting something soon about my experience with filleting my first fish and plenty of different salmon recipes.. so be on the look out for those!
In the meantime, gather up some veggies and let’s get cooking! Continue reading “DIY Vegetable Stock”

I’ve been obsessed with buying bulk dried goods. Flour, rice, pasta, oatmeal and BEANS.
This recipe has lots of hands off time, so all you have to do is soak, drain, season, simmer, and smash and you’ll have the tastiest and easiest refried black beans that don’t taste like the inside of a tin can. Win/win wouldn’t you say? Continue reading “Refried Black Beans from scratch”
OOOOOH BOY! Do I have a surprise for you.
I, like most people, love the crunch of fried chicken. I’m always looking for healthier ways to make my favourite foods and I think I’ve found the answer to this one.
Brown rice cereal.
YUP. That’s right. While these aren’t a particularly tasty breakfast cereal on their own, crumble them up with some seasoning, slap it on some chicken and you will be in HEAVEN
