Chocolate-Peppermint Raw Chilled Fudge (Bite This)

What can I say, we just moved into our new Brooklyn Hood and I needed a quick welcome to our new place desert. Which is easier said then done, when everything you own is packed tight in moving boxes.

But not to fear… the cute corner health food / deli had everything I needed. Organic chocolate bars, maple sugar and some fresh mint.

Remember this one is raw and is a bit on the delicate side. It doesn’t like warm rooms, so pull this out of the freezer just before serving.

Gluten Free Crunchy Shortbread Biscuits (Bite This)

This recipe was sprung out of one of my many Martha Stewart inspired moments.
She called for straight up butter, of course, and so I wanted to see if I could use coconut butter instead. The batter was a little dry so I added nut milk and used chestnut flour instead of hazelnuts cause that’s what I had on hand and wow! They came out crunchy, delicately sweet and the perfect biscuit to serve along side some warm beverages.

If your following Bite This, you know recently we escaped the frigid cold of the East Coast and spent some weeks soaking up a little California sun. We spent our nights in a cabin right on the Pacific Coastline, enjoying many outdoor picnics, while we stared out at the beautiful ocean. This recipe came to life as I was preparing one of those outdoor late Sunday lunches. I was determined to find as many ways as possible to use the overflow of tangerines and lemons hanging from the trees around our cabin. I think I did good with this one. Well, the Monkie thought so.

Tapioca Pudding with Brandy Infused Red Raspberries (Bite This)

This is one of those, I need a delicious beautiful dessert now recipes. Tapioca is a quick dessert that will definitely delight you and your guests! You can even make the tapioca part the night before for simple assembly the next day. Just be sure to marinate the berry topping the day you are gonna eat this yummy dessert.

A little about the berry topping. You can make it with or without the Brandy and/or Cognac. I like the flavor and the little warmth the Brandy brings to the berries. If your serving this to young ones, its just as good with the pure sweetness of the berries.

Blueberry Barley Cobbler (Bite This)

Blueberry Barley Cobble Blueberry Barley Cobbler (Bite This)

One of the many amazing gifts, my BF gave me this year was a beautiful Wolfgang Flour Mill. I know. He did real real good. :) So I have been experimenting a little with all the grains I love. In they go and out comes some lovely flour. You have to get one of these! It turns out, fresh milled flour really is better.

For this recipe I found a bag of heirloom purple barley and milled it into a fine flour. Then I found a bag of frozen organic blueberries and thought to myself, how beautiful the two would look together. You can alway substitute another whole grain flour if you don’t have barley on hand and of course, you don’t need to mill the flour yourself. Either way, this cobbler is subtly sweet and seemed to get better with the passing days in the fridge.

Now go out and get a mill! They are more fun than…. well, you get what I mean. Oh and they save you a small fortune if your a power flour user like me.

Tangy Raw Apple Cider Vinaigrette (Bite This)

I am a huge fan of making homemade dressings. They are extremely easy to make, cost effective and much more delicious, not to mention healthier than the bottled stuff. Think about it.

Now I am a true blood New Yorker at heart which means, I must hit the town and dine out a few times a week. This gives me plenty of tasting opportunities and when I run across a yummy dressing…I make sure to ask for the recipe. Most of the time, I get some vague answer, but that isn’t a problem, that is a challenge. With my new flavor discovery, I go into my kitchen, and like a mad scientist, I try my hand at re-creating it. This was one of those inspired moments….

French Onion Soup (Bite This)

bite this post french onion soup vegan French Onion Soup (Bite This)

Vegans and carnivores will both be happy with this amazingly rich soup. A perfect starter for a Christmas meal. The special somethin’ somethin’ comes from the use of unpasteurized dark miso. I use south river miso. They make their miso using a variety of grains, beans and sea vegetables. They are all wonderful. Miso not only adds extra depth to any soup but has exceptional nutritional values. Unpasteurized miso is a ‘living food’ and contains natural digestive enzymes that aid in digestion, so it’s a great way to get your tummy ready for all the other food comin’ it’s way from your holiday feast!

*note: Use the recipe for ‘homemade vegetable stock’ from our earlier Bite This recipe for the vegetable stock!
