    "The best way to eat this butter is to have it thickly spread on a folded over sandwich in each hand, a bottle of juice between your feet, and to have a loved one pulling you down a country road in your red wagon. Fall is the traditional time to enjoy this scenario, but other seasons work as well. In case of snowy conditions, a sled may replace the wagon. In case a country road is not available, city sidewalks make a good substitute." From

    Recipe #123837

    Okinawan sweet potatoes are a glorious purple color which makes this ice cream a lovely lavender color. You could probably sub another kind of sweet potato in a pinch, but it won't be the same.

    Recipe #122168

    Burdock root looks kind of weird, but is absolutely delicious and so very good for you. It has a clean but earthy flavor that many people compare to artichokes or celery. Interestingly, it grows in the wild in North America- you know those "burrs" that stick t you when you go for a walk in a meadow? Those are from the burdock plant! I purchase burdock at the health food store, but you can also find it at Asian food stores. I guess this is kind of a non-traditional recipe, since burdock is usually used for Asian food, but trust me, it's delicious! Cook time includes 30 minute soak time for the burdock, but not time to cook the pasta.

    Did you know that wild rice is not actually rice, but the seed of a grass native to the lakes of the upper Midwest and southern Canada? Bulgar is made by steam-cooking and drying whole-wheat kernels, then cracking them into pieces. From BH&G. Healthy stuff! This is easy to make vegan- just use a vegan margarine and vegetable broth and you're set. This uses cooked wild rice, so if you've got some left over, this might be a good one to try. I think it would probably freeze well, too.

    Baked oatmeal is so yummy and if you haven't tried it, you're missing out! This recipe is special in several respects- for one, it contains not only rolled oats, but also oat bran and steel-cut oats. It's also not too high in fat and you mix in some fruit of your choosing, for an extra tasty treat. Delicious and healthy, this is the kind of special breakfast you can feel good about serving your family in the morning. Enjoy! (From BH&G)

    I love muffins. I have included OAMC/freezer instructions for these as well.

    Recipe #117968

    Sausage without the meat! A good alternative for vegetarians/vegans or just a change of pace for us meat-eaters. The packaged frozen stuff has so much salt and perservatives; not to mention the price...Eeek! I would imagine that you could freeze these after frying them up and have them on-hand just like the ones you get in the freezer case at the store. From Delicious Living magazine.

    Recipe #114795

    This recipe is from Delicious Living magazine. They suggest it as dinner party fare, but I think it would also make a nice healthy snack or side for lunch to keep on-hand in the fridge. It should keep about 4 days in the fridge. Lots of minerals, vitamins and the healthy stuff in this! All the more reason to whip up a batch to keep on-hand in the fridge for easy access to a healthy snack.

    Recipe #114402

    This is good for an emotional detox. The book this is from, "Herbal Teas" recommends drinking 2-4 cups daily. Its a good tea to have to support your nerves and spirit when you're doing any kind of detox, be it a fast or quitting smoking.

    This recipe is from the book "Herbal Teas". It is supposed to be good for colds, but it has a nice flavor for everyday use too. Echinancea is useful for fighting off colds and flu, especially at the onset of symptoms. Catnip eases symptoms of colds, flus and bronchitis and is very calming and relaxing. Yarrow is useful for the onset of colds anf flu and can cause heat flushing, which is good for breaking a fever. Lemon balm contains antiviral components, good for fighting colds and flu. Barb Fahs, the creator of this tea recommends decocting it to make the tea stronger and have more visible results, but I usually will just brew it. I have included instructions for either method. Time is for the decoction process. The recipe can also easily be reducted or increased, just keep the proportions the same.

    Another tea from the book "Herbal Teas". The ingredients sound kind of strange, like stuff you would expect to see in the ingredients for a chicken recipe rather than a tea recipe, but it tastes really nice. Fennel helps expel mucus accumulations and soothes coughs and throats. Ginger is warming and helps relieve colds, coughs and flu symptoms. Rosehips are extremely high in vitamins A, E, K, P and especially C. One cup of rosehips has as much vitamin C as 150 oranges! They're also very rich in bioflavinoids and help ward off sore throats and colds. Sage is calming and helps of easy lung congestion, making it very useful for colds and flus. Thyme is very good for throat, broncial and lung disorders and has antispasmotic, excpectorant and sedative properties and is a strong antiseptic and germicide. If you would like to make this a dry mix, you could use 1 Tbs each dry ginger (the bits, not the powder) and dried orange peel- this will increase the servings to 18.

    Recipe #114107

    I don't like olives much, but I love them in this yummy, hearty tagine. The combine very well with the flavor of the mushroom. We used half yukon gold and half purple potatoes for this and the yellow/purple combo was just really pretty. This is adapted from "The Great Book of Couscous". Serve over couscous!

    Since trying Chia's Recipe #89278 we discovered just how yummy North African food is! This recipe is from the "The Great Book of Couscous". I have adapted it slightly as I do not like the taste of raw/undercooked tomatoes, but I have also included the original directions. Simple, tasty and hearty- great served over, surprisingly enough, couscous. Enjoy!

    We recently discovered that we love cauliflower. Cardamom is a personal favorite too. :) This recipe can be served warm or cold and is from "The Bread & Circus Whole Foods Bible"!

    Recipe #108907

    This recipe is from the wonderful book, "The Bread & Circus Whole Food Bible." They suggest that you serve it with grated carrot and watercress on pitas, with sprouts on rice cakes or with raw vegetables. It could also be used as a sauce for udon or soba noodles or sauteed veggies.

    This is a vegan substitute for eggs in baked goods. It could probably work in casseroles too, but don't try scrambled eggs with this! ;)

    When I was little, I always wanted some coffee because my parents were always drinking it... but it tasted gross (I like it now though, haha). I think this would be great to serve your kids with dessert while the grown-ups enjoy their coffee. This is a great and very healthful drink for kids or grown-ups to enjoy. It sounds a little odd, but it actually tastes very good and can act as a good alternative to coffee for adults (who don't want the caffeine) or kids (who don't like coffee!) Molasses is a good source of Vitamin B6 and Selenium, and a very good source of Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. I make mine with blackstrap, but you can use the lighter variety if you (or your kids) prefer. I got this idea/recipe from a peculiar cookbook from the 70s for sugar-free (and artifical sweetener-free) diets called "The Ecological Eclair."

    Haven't tried this- posted by request from my sister! From The Dessert Bible by Christopher Kimball (the guy from America's Test Kitchen). Just a classic eggless vanilla pudding.

    I haven't tried these, but the word on the street is that they are excellent vegan and gluten free cookies. A nice plus? You can eat the dough without worrying about raw eggs. :) From
