Pumpkin Spice Latte’

wildnourishment.com

It’s that time again…the coming of autumn. When the leaves put on a display of color and the weather will often be the perfect setting for relaxing with a book and a warm cup of comfort…a pumpkin spice latte’. Here is a homemade version that is just as comforting as the one you find in the retail outlets but made with natural ingredients that still maintain all the taste.

Lemonade with Rosemary Honey

wildnourishment.comThis is my last ditch effort of hanging on to what is left of summer. I sat in my kitchen during a crazy hot evening in Chicago-land looking around for something cool and refreshing. All I had was lemons so, duh…I made lemonade. I did juice my lemons in a machine with the peels intact. It gives it a refreshing tartness that cools the palate. I’ve gently sweetened it with a simple syrup made with filtered water and honey that is infused with fresh rosemary. An unforgettably quenching end of summer drink.

Avocado Egg Gouda Sriracha Grilled Cheese

wildnourishment.comI’ve been drooling over various versions of this deluxe grilled cheese. None of them seemed quite right until some tweaking in the kitchen! I spent two delightful days of testing out variations of this sandwich to get this recipe and I’m sharing it with all of you. It’s a great mid day pick me up. With every awesome serving you are getting a load of protein, some great saturated fat, a dairy portion and a grain portion. All that AND it tastes phenomenal! The only thing that makes this grilled cheese any better is serving it next to a side of my Brussels sprout slaw.

Brussels Sprout Slaw

wildnourishment.comWant a food portion that is raw and power packed in one of the highest known naturally occurring Vitamin K, Vitamin C and Folate? Then look no further than Brussels sprouts! I implore you to try this recipe for all those picky “non” Brussels sprout eaters out there. You’ll find that this salad/slaw will disappear before your eyes! Which is unfortunate because it tastes even more amazing the next day. This slaw is light, delicious and chock full of health benefits.

Kapustnica (Slovak Sauerkraut Soup)

wildnourishment.comThis week we’re thinking out of the box comfort food…as in, European comfort food. Kapustnica is a sauerkraut soup that derives from the amazing country of Slovakia. It’s a sauerkraut based soup that is super delicious and always hits the spot. You can ferment your own sauerkraut, use your own sausage, add or delete ingredients as you please because “that” is just how they cook in Slovakia. There is no exact recipe for this dish. Feel free to play around with what works for your family!

Pesto Chicken

wildnourishment.comI love this part of the summer when all my plants that I’ve grown are starting to be ready for harvest. Right now, my basil is out of control right now (which is a good thing)…so I get the luxury of having amazing pesto whenever I want. I use pesto for salad dressing, marinade, dip sauces…you name it, you can put pesto on it. Here is one of my family’s favorite made with chicken thighs. You are welcome to use any part of the chicken you prefer, or turkey! I guarantee, you will never have a more tender and succulent poultry recipe!

Banana Bread Muffins with White Chocolate Glaze

wildnourishment.comI love dessert! You know what? So should you! I never miss having dessert because I personally feel that once you start depriving yourself, that’s when things get out of hand. I’m always searching and testing for ways to have comfort desserts that are better for you. Not good for you…just better for you. Here is an amazingly moist and light banana bread muffin that I took over the top with a little white chocolate. One half cup to be exact. One wonderfully sinful delicious half cup of white chocolate that becomes a glaze that makes you feel like a million bucks when you are done with it! You know you want to try it…
