no waste vegetable stockNo CommentsRead more
Ever feel like you are wasting vegetable scraps? Well stop! Save them to use in a nourishing vegetable stock. You can use whatever scraps you have accumulated, carrot tops, celery leaves, onion or leek scraps, etc. Homemade stock tastes so much better than that stuff in a box. Ever since I started making it myself I will never go back. If you eat chicken, just add your leftover remains to this non-recipe to make chicken stock. It will keep in the refrigerator for about a week or you can freeze it.

I’ll be honest; I’m not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Roses and chocolate and a rushed dinner at a packed restaurant aren’t my thing. Ok, well I wouldn’t turn down ranunculus and organic 80% dark chocolate but I’d rather have it on a random day than a commercialized holiday. I am however, always for a nice relaxed dinner at home and I’m sure many of you are too, especially those with littles who can’t get a sitter. So if you’re staying at home with your love, here’s a delicious, festive (make-ahead) recipe that makes a lovely first course.
