Heart Strengthening Tea bumps my Parasite Article
My parasite article, for the past 10 years, has reigned supreme for the amount of people that find it organically (via search on google) and view it on my website. BUT, for the first time in over a decade, another article has shockingly received way more views than my parasite article. You may be wondering… “well, what article is that about?” It’s my Heart Strengthening Hawthorn tea recipe. It’s a very simple blend of herbs that nourishes and heals the heart using Hawthorn Berries as the main in

Surf and Turf Pasta
Surf and turf is a classic combination of animal proteins combined from both the sea and from the land. The “surf” component can contain something like lobster, prawns, shrimp, squid or scallops. And, the “turf” is usually a red meat from an animals grazing on grass – like cows. In this recipe, I used shrimp (surf) and beef bacon (turf). It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare (if you have leftover rice), and it’s totally delish!

Hearty Stewed Oxtail and Vegetables
Meats and fats, according to ancient food and healing medicine, are considered “builders.” That means they have a greater capacity to build and strengthen the body, as opposed to fruits and veggies which have a propensity toward cleansing and clearing bodily systems. Traditionally, in many cultures around the world, heavy meats and fatty foods were eaten more frequently during the winter months and/or in colder environments. It’s one of the reasons why I really enjoy this Hearty Oxtail Stew duri

Quick Cooking Crabcakes
When I was growing up, crabcakes were a fun treat to order whenever my dad would take us out to a seafood restaurant. Little did I know that crabcakes are actually very easy to prepare at home. If you want to wow your dinner guests with a delicious treat, try this recipe. The best crabmeat to use would be the fresh lump crab meat that can be found at your local fish market, or in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. If you cannot find fresh crabmeat, or it’s too expensive, use canned.

Easy Rose Hip Spread
Personally, I’ve never gotten into canning foods, even though I know it’s a vital skill to have. One day, I’ll do it. But for now, I’ve got a fun workaround. When I was studying herbalism at Arbor Vitae School of Traditional Herbalism, Claudia Keel (teacher/herbalist/CEO), showed us how to prepare Rose Hip jam without having to cook and can the end product. It was the simplest recipe. She put seeded dried rose hips into a mason jar and covered it with apple juice. That was it! No added ingredien

Quick Cooking Congee
Some folks don’t like leftovers, but I love em’. Whenever I have leftover food from the day before, I always know that a new and delicious meal is just a couple of ingredients away. For example, I made a big pot of turkey and rice with veggies. And, of course I had leftovers. So the next morning, I took 2 cups of the turkey and rice leftovers, and combined it in a soup pot with about 4 cups of chicken stock to make a quick cooking congee. It cooked for 30 minutes and then I added fresh scallions

Iron-Rich Duck Confit
Twenty years ago when I returned to eating meat after being vegan for a few years, one particular animal protein called to me; duck. What’s interesting about this choice is that I had NOT been a duck eater prior to going vegan. If anything, chicken was my go-to meat of choice. Duck, even though it’s technically poultry, is considered a red meat – at least in the culinary world. That makes sense as the meat is dark red. Throughout my life, I had a tendency to be anemic, and going vegan didn’t hel
