Curried Hash with Poached Eggs and Herbed Olive Oil

Curried Rutabaga Hash

There are lazy mornings. Sleepy mornings. Mornings that beg for runny yolks and starchy taters (or Rutabaga in this case) fried up with onions. This is most true on cold and grey mornings. 

This is especially true in the late fall as temperatures drop. The dulled colors of dying grass covered in a light film of frost. The light is muted and grey. The air even smells different brought on by the decaying leaves on the ground. Even the crispness of the air is dulled by the fact that the atmosphere hovers just above and below freezing varying by any given hour. The trees are stark, managing a majestic presence and vulnerability at the same time. 

Curried Hash with Herbed Oil

These are the mornings that cause you to put on extra cozy socks and a sweater before wrapping your hands around that perfect cup of coffee while the smell of onions and root veggies waft through the house. These are the mornings that command a hot breakfast that won’t leave you craving anything for many hours to come. Continue Reading →

Vietnamese Braised Chicken with 5 Spice (Vegan? Try it with Winter Squash)

Braised Chicken with 5 spice

Isn’t one of the best things about traveling exploring the food that is so uniquely of that culture?

The different flavors, vegetables used in different ways, spices I’ve never heard of, food I’ve never seen. What can I say but amazing.

Well it is for me, but I’ve always been a little bit of a gourmand, aka piggy.

What can I say. I love food. LOVE it.

It seems a little strange to be thinking about Vietnamese dishes as I sit and look out the window. It’s currently snowing and -12 degrees C (Joshua is American, so that’s 11 F for all of you South of the border). And even though it is cold, it is stunningly beautiful. The tiniest snowflakes are falling with almost no wind by the thousands every millisecond. In Vietnam, the high today is 31 C/89 F. In a country that rarely experiences cold except in the far reaches of the north western parts of the country, the majority of vietnamese food is a little spicy and almost always hot, braised, in soup form or stewed. I don’t know about you, but if I lived in a country that rarely saw temperatures under 22 C/71 F, I think I’d choose to live off salads, not eating Beef Pho  (beef and noodle soup) for breakfast. But that’s just me.

I am happy to welcome Kammie today. She is a such a multifaceted person that I’m not sure where to start. Between working on 2 degrees, her day job at Social Media Marketing agency as a project manager and strategist and being a freelance photographer, I’m not sure where she finds to time to run a website and share her wonderful recipes and her journey with all of us. But I’m happy she does!

Hey there Beyond The Peel readers! My name is Kammie and I am the blogger behind Sensual Appeal, where I share everything that is delicious, mindful, and happy!

Raise your hand if you love Autumn! *raises hand*

Ahh… yes. I love Autumn. It’s, without a doubt, my favorite season. I love the weather – the temperatures are perfect, it’s not too cold and not too warm. The leaves are turning beautiful tones of yellow and red and falling on the ground. It’s also the season for all Fall flavors which includes APPLES.

Paleo Brazil Nuts, Lime and Hemp Power Bars

Paleo Brazil Nut, Lime, & Hemp Power Bars-4095

I am so pleased to introduce Tessa. One of the first ‘friends’ I made on this crazy thing called the internet. Her website offers endless, seriously ENDLESS allergen free recipes. Whatever allergies you might have, she’s got a recipe that can help. Which is no small thing considering we’re talking about casein, gluten, corn, sugar free and Paleo. Most surprisingly is that there is no shortage of baking and treats on her sight that can fit almost any dietary restrictions. So you can have fun too.

Thank you everyone for welcoming Tessa from TessaTheDomesticDiva.com

This recipe was born of a flavor combination of a shortbread cookie I had in my past: a truly magical combination of Brazil nuts and lime.

Before those cookies…Brazil nuts were very under appreciated in my world.  Now I wonder how I didn’t always love them.  SO buttery and SO nutritious!
