Whipped Orange Salad

Anyone else grow up going to MCL cafeteria as a treat? This was a rare occasion, but when it happened there was one classic menu item I never could get enough of. Whipped cream, mandarine oranges, pineapple chunks, mini marshmallows, and shredded coconut made into the most addicting sweet salad out there…at least in my opinion :) After discovering the homemade honey marshmallow I had to make my own version! I skipped some of the ingredients out of preference, but feel free to mix it up how you like. Just thinking about this recipe makes my mouth water!

With an overabundance of local CSA vegetables I kind of made this up on a whim last week in an effort to use as many vegetables as I could. Let’s just say the accidental recipe was delicious! It was so delicious I thought I’d give it a second try, with some recipe worthy tweaks, and a presentation worth sharing with you all :)

Roasted Vegetable & Cornbread Pizza
Crust
2 cups cornmeal
1 1/2 cups oat flour (or buckwheat, almond, etc.)
1 cup water
1 egg
2 Tablespoons extra virgin cold pressed olive oil
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan Pink salt
Topping
2 cups shredded raw cheddar cheese
2 handfuls of small tomatoes
1 red pepper
1 long green pepper
1 yellow button squash
1 onion
handful of okra
1 head of garlic
2 sprigs of fresh basil
extra virgin cold pressed olive oil
Himalayan Pink salt

Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add in wet ingredients, combine thoroughly, and roll out onto a parchment covered pizza pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes. Keep oven at 350 degrees for roasting the vegetables.
Chop all vegetables and toss with olive oil and salt. Roast vegetables in a large cast iron skillet for an hour stirring every 20 minutes. Top cornbread crust with roasted vegetables and shredded cheese and bake for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Candied Fruit

I recently read the best little book in the entire world. In less time than it took me to fly in my recent trip to Texas, I had read the little book of so few pages and was in awe of it’s simplicity and beauty.

With Valentine’s Day we think of love in a romantic sense. Going on a date, getting flowers, eating a box of chocolates, and feeling loved. Then there’s the joke where some call the 14th day in February “Singles Awareness Day” or “SAD”. However, in The Greatest Thing In The World, Henry Drummund spoke at a dinner gathering on 1 Corinthians 13, the Love chapter. The 19th century Scott’s recorded words have been the most understandable and beautiful explanation of the Christian life that I have ever heard (outside of the Bible of course). The Word of God tells us that the most important thing in life is to love God and love our neighbor. The whole of the Old Testament law was to bring order and submission back to a sinful people, so that they would know how to love God and love their neighbor.

I’m far from knowing how to love perfectly, but The Greatest Thing In The World has given me a new vision for love. It’s not a feel good love or the deceptive love we expect to celebrate this time of year, but a love so beautiful that a heart change towards Christ likeness is only possible. I’ve had my fair share of conflict relationally. I still do, but what I know is that no matter how much I’m hated, I must love. No matter if I love to the point of being harmed by those who hate me, my aleingence is not in their opinion. God judges those just fine all on His own. In my flesh I want to destroy those who have wronged me and hurt me, but God has been so gracious to give me a peace and a restraint to live in freedom…to love.

The Greatest Thing In The World, love.


Candied Fruit
fruit
coconut sugar or honey

There are so many directions to go when candying fruit, but the simplest I’ve found is to cover the fruit of choice in a sweetener, in this case I used coconut sugar for the citrus and honey for the cranberries, and then dehydrate until crystalized and chewy. Beware, the citrus fruits I made are addicting. Enjoy!
