Ants on a Log???  Berries on a Branch?? Beans on a Stalk???

You’ve heard of ants on a log? Well we’ve kicked it up a notch and made “Berries on a Branch” and “Beans on a Stalk”! For the “berries”, fill your celery with almond butter and top with blueberries. For the “beans” put some guacamole (we made our own!) in the celery and top with black beans. Delicious! Send us your variations for a chance to win a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card! Cheers!

Carrageenan: What is it and is it safe?

Carrageenan: What is it and is it safe?

So, we are big on reading labels here at KBF…. But just because we read the labels, it doesn’t mean the ingredients are well known!  What is carrageenan?  Well, Google defines it as “Carrageenans or carrageenins are a family of linear sulfated polysaccharides that are extracted from red edible seaweeds. They are widely used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties.”

We wanted to know more, so we went to our friends at wellnessmama.com and found this article to share with you about this chemical hiding in our organic foods… yikes!

Test Kitchen Tuesday: KBF Lemonade!!

Test Kitchen Tuesday:  KBF Lemonade!!

As the weather starts to warm up we’re looking for delicious and healthy cool drinks…what better treat on a warm, sunny day than a tall cool glass of lemonade! Unfortunately it’s hard (and expensive) to find a good ready made lemonade that isn’t chock a block full of added sugar. Fortunately it’s easy (and economical) to make yours at home! We made two versions, refreshing Strawberry Lemonade and Sassy Turmeric & Pepper Lemonade.

Basic Recipe:

4 cups water
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup lemon juice
lemon slices for garnish
Heat water until steaming, add honey and stir to disolve. Let cool in fridge. When cool add lemon juice.

For Strawberry Lemonade, add a few strawberries to food processer, add 1/2 cup lemonade and process until smooth, add back to lemonade.
For Turmeric/Pepper Lemonade, add 1/2 inch piece of peeled turmeric root, 1/2 in piece of Fresno Pepper (seeds removed), add 1/2 cup lemonade and process until smooth, add back to lemonade.

You can get creative and make your own custom version as well!

This time of year, baking takes over many kitchens and we want to offer you one recipe that is easy, delicious, and won’t make Santa’s naughty list! These are gluten free and with a few adjustments can be dairy free as well! We hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do!

Cheers!

3/4 cup coconut flour

1 tsp baking soda

lemon zest from 1/2 organic lemon

10 mission figs

2 TBS honey

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp ground cloves

Directions:

*Using a hand mixer, blend together the softened butter and honey

*Add the egg and beat to make a soft batter

*Mix in the flour a little at a time

*Mix in the lemon zest baking soda (The dough should be soft but pliable)

*Shape into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 10 minutes

*Prepare a floured surface and roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick (it helps to cover the dough with plastic wrap while you roll it out)

*Cut out an even number of shapes to make the top and bottom halves. using a smaller shape, cut out a middle section of half of the cookies (these will fit together after baking!)

*Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for about 7-9 minutes

*Let cool completely

Filling:

*Soak figs in water for about half an hour to soften (reserving some of the water to thin filling if necessary)

*In a small processor, puree the figs, honey and a small amount of the reserved water as smooth as possible and set aside

Putting them together!

*Line up your bottom cookies and turn bottom side up

*Using a small spatula, gently spread about a teaspoon of the filling onto the cookie

*Gently cover with the top cookie

*Enjoy!!!
