Getting Green with Cilantro Chives Salad Dressing

kates super salad green dressingSalad dressings seem to be one of those things in the kitchen that everyone has been convinced that we need to buy from a store. For one reason or another we are overwhelmed by the notion of creating our own dressing. It might be the convenience of over paying for a few ingredients that have been blended together, or it might be the complexity of flavors that we are uncertain of recreating at home.

Whatever the reason I am here to tell you to stop buying salad dressing, now! First of all you are overpaying, second you are getting a lot of unhealthy ingredients, and third you are missing out on truly great flavor. This salad dressing will go with any greens based salad that you might put any creamy dressing on.


Took my Chevre to the levy but the levy was dry

vegan aged chevre herbes de provenceNot that it needs much repeating but I do love the taste of cheese. When I got this months issue of VegNews and they had 6 different cheese recipes I knew I was going to end up making them all. This one is a take on goats cheese that I have to say is pretty spot on. It is a little more advanced than the cream cheese recipe but only one step more.

Making the rejuvelac is definitely a pain the butt so you may want to see if you can just buy some at the health food store. Rejuvelac is a fermented liquid made from soaking sprouted grains for a day or two. I used brown rice since thats what I had in the house and it took a long time to get them to sprout. Once they did though the rejuvelac came about in just a day or two and the rest was pretty easy to get done.


Hangover is so over, Juice

hair of the watermelon juice - hangover cure

hair of the watermelon juice - hangover cureI like to have a good time and many times that involves alcoholic beverages. Sometimes the good times spilleth over and the next day I have what is known as a hangover. Its not a point of pride just a point of fact. Today happened to be a day where the hangover decided to hangout all damn day.

So I searched the Googles and found a helpful concoction by Heather at Blend Happy. Now I love the enthusiasm Heather has here but for a hangover post I prefer to speak softly since most people here probably have a bit of a headache. Turns out I have watermelon and cucumber so I created my own version and have to say I am feeling much better.
