German Potato Salad

by

Oh my, this dish was delicious so I thought I’d share! You can serve this warm or cold, and for those of you who aren’t crazy about mayonnaise, this recipe is particularly for you!

Wash, cut and dice three large potatoes and cook in salted water until they are tender when pierced with a fork.

While the potatoes are boiling, cook 3 pieces of bacon in a skillet and set aside. In the bacon grease, saute a small onion, then add 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 Tablespoons honey or sucanat, 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Then add 2 or 3 Tablespoons sour cream and 1/2 Tablespoon prepared mustard. Stir together then add the cooked potatoes, and a bunch of cut, fresh dill and the bacon crumbled. {Next time I think I’ll try a spicy brown mustard and rosemary!}

I hope you enjoy this flavorful salad idea!

Love to you today!

Kitchen Coach Jenny- GF Cheese Bread

by

Here’s another great idea- thanks Jenny!

GF cheese bread

1/2 C. tapioca starch
1 C. sharp cheese, shredded (like fresh Parmesan or Asiago)
2 T. melted butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking powder
rounded 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
3 T. finely chopped fresh herbs (optional)
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. In a bowl, mix tapioca starch, shredded cheese, baking powder, salt, onion powder and garlic powder until combined. Stir in melted butter, egg, and fresh herbs until dough forms a ball. (dough will still be slightly sticky. If it’s not sticking together well, add water a tsp. at a time until it forms a ball.)
Roll into ping-pong sized balls and bake for 7-10 minutes, until lightly browned. These are best right out of the oven.

Here’s a little video by Jenny, and her helper. I love the amaranth idea and know-how, but more than that, I loved watching the fun relationship that comes through loud and clear in this short clip.

Kudos to all you Mamas!

You are investing your talent and energy into relationships like this! Bless you! There are and will be great dividends coming your way.

Enjoy!

Love,
Jacque

Light Dressing

by

A few weeks ago, a dear friend shared a new dressing recipe with me that I thought you might like to try!

I’m going to call it Melissa’s Best Italian Dressing.

1/2 cup avocado oil
1/4 cup red or white wine vinegar
2 tsp honey
2 Tbs Parmesan (no need to grate it first, as it will be broken up in the blender)
few drops lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp basil (I used fresh and that was good)
1/8 tsp oregano
dash black pepper

Put all ingredients into a blender, pulse and voila! You have a creamy, delicious salad dressing or marinate. I used it to marinate these cucumbers and they were so good.

I hope you are getting a lot of fresh produce to enjoy! More recipes coming up next week for simple ways to use all kinds of squash easily…

Have a wonderful weekend.

Love,

Jacque

P.S. Thank you for the lovely dinner and the dressing recipe Melissa!!

P.P.S. A good idea was passed along to me on this recipe: someone added half an avocado! Doesn’t that sound creamy and nice? I also have been experimenting with adding fresh chives, garlic, apple cider vinegar and Pecorino Romano cheese in place of the Parmesan. So, so good!
