We hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas! Brian and I spent the day in the kitchen cooking and enjoying each other’s company (a pretty normal Christmas for us). And of course stalking our semi-feral cat, Babbitt. It was a lovely day.
See ya later, 2020!On the subject of cooking, if we can point to one positive regarding the pandemic, it’s that people have returned to the kitchen. Brian and I have always loved to cook, and it’s been a pleasure sharing that passion and seeing what you all conjure up with our products. Our cooking philosophy is to understand ingredients and how to use them without a recipe. In our search for products, we look for all-natural items to aid the creative process and make time in the kitchen fun.
For example: our all-natural Tiberino one-pot meals. We’ve made several of the risottos now, first following the directions, and now modifying. Last week we made the asparagus leek risotto using chicken broth instead of water and added some leftover chicken, a home-grown bell pepper from a friend’s greenhouse, Danzeisen cream, and fresh grated Parmesan cheese. It was delicious, decadent, and super easy. Just think what you can do with your own holiday leftovers!
With the holiday indulgence behind us, let’s talk about goods to keep us healthy going into the new year. Stuff like…
That’s right. Spinach!But not just any old spinach. Fresh grown spinach from our friends at Dilkon’s Coffee Pot Farms! They will have quarter-pound and half-pound bags of freshly picked spinach delivered to us this week, along with their wonderful eggs.Spinach from Coffee Pot Farms!$3.00 – $6.00
We love this Adobe Milling Company mix of Anasazi, Bolita, Black Eyed Peas, Great Northern Pinto, Black Beans, Lima, Small Reds, Baby and Large Limas, Green Split Peas, Yellow Split Peas, and Cranberry Beans. Soak them overnight and cook them up with chopped fresh chiles and pork. A great cold-weather meal!Moki Beans Mix$4.99

If all the sweets have your belly not feeling so great, give this caffeine-free tea a try. It does wonders for digestion, with cardamon, fennel, and chamomile to soothe the digestive tract, plus ginger, cinnamon, and a splash of peppermint to ignite the digestive fire. I was skeptical until I tried it. It truly does soothe the gut.
Digestive Delight Tea – Herbescent$13.37
Speaking of the gut, part of my daily routine is to blend Bulletproof Innerfuel Prebiotic into my coffee. It helps feed the good gut bacteria so your body can better digest your food. Researchers are more and more figuring out poor gut health is at the core of many modern ailments. Getting the right balance of gut bacteria helps with nutrient absorption, immunity, and fat metabolism which lead to an overall improvement of health and feeling great.InnerFuel Prebiotic – Bulletproof$41.14
On that note of health…
Let’s move forward into 2021 full of positive thoughts and simple acts of kindness!
