Raisin Cookies

So I’ve been experimenting a lot lately with low sugar organic cookies for the gluten free people in the house, more specifically our son who can’t handle sugar. It got me to thinking about a raisin cookie I may be able to eat.

Here’s the recipe:

1 Cup Organic Spectrum shortening
1 cup Organic white sugar
1 cup Organic light brown sugar
2 teaspoons Organic vanilla sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon Organic cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Organic nutmeg (optional)

Cream the above items together, and then mix in what’s below.

2 teaspoons dry egg mix/substitute (or 1 egg)
6 Tablespoons water
10 twists of sea salt (from a salt grinder)
3 cups All purpose flour
1/2 cup Organic raisins (optional)

These are really good. I’m not a huge fan of raisin cookies, but they were still good. If you like raisins, I do hope that you find these enjoyable.

Bake these in the oven at 325 for 10 minutes, on a tray lined with parchment paper. I find with the shortening, if you go too much longer, the cooked get harder, faster, and then they crumble in your mouth, and not in a good way.

Corn Free crab dish

Crab Dish

This is a really simple meal that comes together quickly. I still haven’t decided if I had a problem with the crab meat yet. I had some sinus issues the day after I ate this, so who knows. If you’re like me and can get allergens through the meat you eat, tread lightly. If you’re not like me and aren’t so bad off, have a jolly good time with this one. It was quite enjoyable. Read More

Purple Onion Lamb

I was starving tonight, but I wanted something different. So, here’s what I did:

I started with 1/2 of a organic medium purple/red onion. I sautéed it in organic olive oil on low-medium heat while I prepared food for everyone else. After about 1/2 an hour, it was so perfect. The onions were good enough to eat by themselves. Next, I cooked grass fed ground lamb on the stove top, medium high heat, and seasoned it with sea salt, Organic Braggs Herbs and Spices, and Organic Black Pepper. Yup, it was that simple.

I smashed an organic avocado, and mixed it all together. Totally not kidding, I wish I had some right now. I encourage you to give this one a try!

Sorry for the lack of pictures. I told you I was hungry 🙂

Organic mushrooms
Sea salt
Organic pepper
Organic Braggs Herbs & Spices
Organic Chives
Organic onion powder
Tomato Zukay raw salad dressing
Organic Cooked rice
Organic extra virgin olive oil Read More

Organic onions

Onion Garlic Mix

I want to kick off the new year with something I’ve been using a lot lately. This mix is so yummy, and I love finding an excuse to use it.

I love our Weston chopper! It makes my life so much easier sometimes. Although the mission (if you choose to accept it) that you’re about to embark on is a going to take quite a while. However, be strong! When it’s all said and done, it will be delicious.

You’ll need:

1 Organic elephant garlic (I used 4 out of the 5 sections)
1 Organic onion, medium white
3 Tablespoons of Organic oil Read More
