Hot and sour squash peanut soup

Day 2 at INTEL….. This soup has a kick, most people said it is medium spiced with a good balance of sweet and sour. ***** The HOT kick comes from red pepper flakes and red chilies. The SOUR punch comes from the pickled red chilies and from the tamarind. The smooth SWEETNESS comes from the […]

Creamy Coconut Cauliflower Soup

This sensuous creamy soup is dairy and gluten free. These 6 strong flavors stand up to each other, creating a hearty yet sophisticated, soup.

Plum, Apple, Thyme Slush (or Soup)

A wonderfully refreshing drink. The thyme pulls it away from being a breakfast. And, it’s just too sweet to call it breakfast, unless you use berries and reduce the amount to a 1/2 cup. This version is good for a summer afternoon or evening. Also included is a Bulletproof version.

Sweet and Sour Lentils, Quinoa w/Basil Butter

Yummm, I put together 3 things that I had in my fridge to make a tasty, satisfying breakfast porridge. The flavors — basil, butter, orange, ginger, tamarind — brought me to all parts of the world.

Roasted Garlic, Squash, Tomato Bisque Soup

This soup is warming, suited for fall and winter. The color is bright orange-y red, w/brown topping. The texture is smooth, creamy, velvety with bits of tomatoes and squash.

5-course, pretty much Paleo, gourmet lunch

5-course luncheon for 2 people (well, 3 people if you count me, yet I ate after they had their dessert course).

Here is a recap of Saturday, July 16th, COOKING OUTSIDE THE BOX class at Williams-Sonoma, Los Gatos with produce from High Ground Organic’s CSA box.

Sweet’n Sour Cabbage Soup

I created this soup for the Cooking Demo at Williams-Sonoma, July 10th (following a trip to the Farmer’s Market) in Los Gatos. A couple of the people who stopped by knew that cabbage is good for the stomach, protecting against, and aiding recovery of, stomach ulcers. This brought back memories of when I first started […]

Cooking demo, Williams-Sonoma, July 10th

We found wonderful looking, enticing produce at the Los Gatos Farmer’s Market this morning for my cooking demo at Williams-Sonoma (WS). First, we (me and my group) walked through the entire market without buying a single thing. We said HELLO to the vendors while looking for new, different, intriguing foods. Then, got down to business. […]

Fruit Soup with Almond Butter

I came up with this concoction for Intel’s guest chef demo. My goal is to show the beauty and ease of cooking out of a box… a CSA box, that is. This ‘soup’ is thin enough to drink from a glass, and thick enough to eat with a spoon.
