Post image for Make Your Own Infused Honey

This weekend, I made something awesome. Sticky…yes, but getting your hands a little dirty is probably the hardest thing you will have to overcome when it comes to making your own infused honey.

I have to agree with Julie on this. It's much safer to infuse the honey over low heat. Sanitation is paramount. Keeping the honey under 135 as suggested by another poster is fine for leaving the honey in it's raw state- but if you really want to be safe and store your infused honey for any length of time, I'd suggest making sure to pasteurize at about 175 degrees. The "benficial stuff" doesn't mean much to me for my infused honey- but I use it exclusively for beer brewing. Keeping everything sanitary is much more important for my application.

I do not know what I did wrong since I did the same with ginger and lemongrass for about 5 days too. But when I went to check today the honey was liquidity and had some white spots that appeared out of nowhere! when it was perfectly fine yesterday; sticky and flavorful (I would check from time to time). Do you think that the lemongrass has anything to do with it? :(

Do you guys know of any quinoa dessert recipes? I've made chocolate quinoa cake a billion times (a no flour type- just coco powder and eggs, milk, coconut oil, sugar, vanilla, baking soda and powder, and then cooked quinoa...) and it's become my trademark food to bring to potlucks and parties so I'm obsessed, and would love to try new flavors, and I just feel like this is the place I should go to find some new quinoa desserts!

Post image for Local Gem: The Random Tea Room and Curiosity Shop

On the corner of North Fourth Street and Fairmount Ave in Northern Liberties is a place that feels like home. Here, nestled off of the street, lives a little (perhaps random) tea room where I spent most of my time this past weekend. Read more »

I will never forget my first experience in a tea room. It was this tiny little hole in the wall and they had prepared a tea ceremony in these 100 year old clay pots. Each of the teas tasted amazing and I did experience this euphoric "tea drunk" experience when I left. It's was so magical, unlike anything I had ever experienced!!! Thanks for the post, next time I'm in Philly I'll be sure to check it out. Or if you guys are ever back in San Diego the tea shops in Ocean Beach and it's called The Whole Leaf <3 xoxo Annejelina Visit my shop:

These are delish! I've started making grab bags for snacks for my husband and I and was wondering if these should be refrigerated after cooking or can be left out in the zip lock bags ? Thanks so much :)

Yum! I'll pass on the brussel sprouts, tho :D My big thing as of late is making large batches of homemade soup from natural bone broth--I feel fantastic having eaten more of this the last month or so. I think I'll include some kale and cabbage in the next batch. Thanks for sharing!

Post image for Vegan Superfood Hot Chocolate Recipe

Update: This post originally ran December 3, 2013, but we wanted to share it again… it’s the perfect recipe for relaxing by the fire with loved ones this week — and it feels good to get something healthy into our bodies after all of that overeating we may or may not be doing lately.

The time has come for cozy nights filled with homemade hot chocolate… when the heat radiates through the mug, warming your hands from the outside in, and then your entire body from the inside out with every sweet sip you take. I’ve come across a few recipes that include healthy ingredients, so I’ve merged a few to form this uniquely delicious concoction – one that will nourish both body and soul. Read more »

Beware, the cinnamon sticks shown in the image are actually 'cassia bark cinnamon' i.e. not real true cinnamon! Always make sure you are using real true cinnamon, aka Ceylon Cinnamon / Sri Lankan Cinnamon. Why? Because the usual stuff available in the West is 'Cassia Bark Cinnamon' and when used frequently it actually is toxic to the liver. You can buy real Ceylon cinnamon teabags, ceylon cinnamon powder and ceylon cinnamon sticks over at International delivery is available - just email your order details so that postage can be worked out.

What about grape-seed oil? I use EVOO for literally everything but have really been wanting to get into coconut oil. I think its the one I'll try next.
Lisa Barnes -Jan 19, 2014, 8:58AM
I think it is important to point out the fact that we should also be consuming unrefined oils. Most of what you pictured are refined versions of these oils, which leave them damaged and devoid of most of their nutritional properties. The refining process yields more stable shelf lives and higher smoke points, by removing the volatile (and nutritious) parts of the oil. You can test this out by simply smelling refined vs. unrefined versions of the same oil- you will notice that the refined version lacks all of the aromas and flavors that the unrefined version naturally holds.

Every so often it’s nice to spend the afternoon relaxing with friends, unwinding with a delicious glass of wine or beer. But when the weather starts to drop, I always find myself wanting something warm – and a hot toddy does just the trick. Read more »

I liked the idea of putting the cucumber in. I whizzed this up and it was very simple to do and the taste had a lovely balance. Many thanks for the tips.
