Orange Olive Oil Cake

Orange Olive Oil Cake

The Furies got this recipe from our customer, Cathie Greenwold, and she graciously let us add it to the site! The addition of cornmeal in the batter almost gives it a texture similar to cornbread.  When I made it, I hesitated to use all of the syrup, don't hesitate! The syrup blends into the cake and it holds up beautifully. Final note, I of course, used plain Greek yogurt.  My favorite way to eat this is as a coffee cake for breakfast. This recipe is from Gran.  She always glazed it with chocolate, but I like the syrup and cream...

Parsley and Bulgar wheat star in this heart healthy Mediterranean side salad.

Lamb Sliders with Beets, Greens & Beans

Lamb Sliders with Beets, Greens & Beans

These sliders are filled with fresh herbs, spices and feta cheese.  We chose organic, grass fed lamb that we found at a local farmers market.  Although we don't eat a lot of meat, lamb is a rich source of high-quality protein, and an outstanding source of many vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. Beets compliment the lamb nicely and are also nutritional powerhouses, packed with essential nutrients like folate, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. Don't discard the greens!  We sauteed ours with garlic, lemon and a splash of wine and added white kidney beans to round out the meal. ...
