Food Freedom: Michael Schmidt and Raw Milk Rights

Food Freedom: Michael Schmidt and Raw Milk Rights

I know that I already posted today, but I want to give all my readers a heads up on the raw milk fight.  There is a chilling standoff right now in Canada over the country’s laws regarding raw milk.  Several days ago, Food Safety News covered the then-20-day fast, outlining the laws as essentially being that you can not have raw milk in Canada, unless you own your own cow.

Michael Schmidt is a dairy farmer in Ontario, Canada who is currently on day 25 of his hunger strike aimed at … Continue Reading

Homemade Irish Cream

Homemade Irish Cream

This recipe is an excerpt from my Natural Cocktails e-book, which is perfect for the homemade mixologist who doesn’t want any fake colors or flavors in their cocktails.  Yum!

Irish cream served over ice in the evening is one of favorite ways to unwind.  Grass-fed cream fresh from the dairy, pleasantly spicy Irish whiskey, cool and rich all in the same sip.  And all perfectly sweetened and flavored without any questionable additives.

I’m only 1/4 Irish, but I swear that the Irish genes in me are more than a mere 25% expressed.  I … Continue Reading

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Skillet Cookie

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Skillet Cookie

Classic flavors of delicate white chocolate and the smooth crunch of macadamia nuts in a cookie remind me of my childhood.  Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies, but I was always partial to the vanilla scented white chocolate confections as a child.

I also remember my mother putting chocolate chip cookie dough into a baking dish to make “cookie bars”. If it seemed easier to me then, then it’s definitely easier as a mom of two!  Only now that I am committed to real food, I love baking the cookie dough in a cast … Continue Reading

Smoked Salmon & Herb Cheese Pinwheels

Smoked Salmon & Herb Cheese Pinwheels

Cool and savory, these smoked salmon and herbed cheese pinwheels are the perfect nutrient-dense bites to whip up for a holiday party.  Served on a simple cracker these hors d’oeuvres give a balanced contrast of crunch from the seeds to the velvety texture of the cheese and salmon swirled together.  I have also always been drawn to the color salmon, so I love this dish for it’s beautiful presentation of the pinkish-orange against the green and white, all sitting atop a crisp square.

Of course, anything nutrient dense is always excellent for little … Continue Reading
