Bat Forest Cake

Bat Forest Cake

If I'm going to have a chocolate cake, I'm going to make sure there's Amarena Cherries nearby. A decadent cake, sweet soaked cherries, and light whipped cream is all you need for a classic Black Forest Cake. In this rendition, I took the theme a bit further by using SKORDO Black Cocoa Powder to really deepen the color as well as flavor. And since we are heading towards Halloween, I added some paper bats to the top and dramatically drizzled extra cherry syrup around the cake, declaring it a Bat Forest Cake.

Chickpea, Quinoa, and White Bean Chili

Chickpea, Quinoa, and White Bean Chili

It's hard to find a chili I don't like, so I had high expectations for even the healthiest of versions. This was delicious, I didn't miss a thing! A great recipe from Antoni's new cookbook, Antoni, Let's Do Dinner. We amped up the flavor with Chili Seasoning instead of chile powder. Our spice blend has three types of Chile powders: Chipotle, New Mexico, and Ancho. Top this simple recipe with your favorites additions and you've got a delicious healthy meal.

Tamarind-Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash with Chile Yogurt

Tamarind-Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash with Chile Yogurt

"Fruity, tangy tamarind joins forces with maple syrup to heighten the earthy sweetness of roasted squash. Cool yogurt spiked with smoky chiles adds more layers of flavor and texture" With some adaptations to utilize SKORDO ingredients, this recipe from Everyone's Table by Gregory Gourdet was a delightful way to dive into the fall season.

Moon Drink

Moon Drink

I prepared this as a supplement for my family while they waited for Stewed Pork to cook from Everyone's Table.  I could only find ashwagandha in capsule form, so I opt'd out of using it here. Turmeric is a spice superhero and provides too many benefits to count, so the drink is still very immune boosting. It was certainly a hit, served either warm or cold.

Orzo Salad with Grilled Vegetables + Greek Seasoning

Orzo Salad with Grilled Vegetables + Greek Seasoning

Our Greek Seasoning is the perfect compliment to your favorite veggies from the garden.  This salad has become our go-to for a simple and delicious side for a group as it works well with veggies that are grilled or roasted and can be served warm or room temperature.  Make the components ahead of time and toss together prior to serving.  Serves 10 and leftovers keep well in the fridge.

(The Best) Lemon + Oregano Greek Potatoes

(The Best) Lemon + Oregano Greek Potatoes

These will be the best Greek potatoes you've ever tasted...crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.  All with a wonderful lemon, garlic, and oregano flavor.  They go well with any Greek dish, but especially roast lamb or lamb chops.  But of course they're still also wonderful cold, for breakfast, right out of the fridge!

Room Temperature Hericots Verts with Black Truffle + Sesame

Room Temperature Hericots Verts with Black Truffle + Sesame

Who knew Aleppo Chile Flakes and Black Truffle Salt went together so well? Vanessa Seder did. This recipe from Vanessa's cookbook 'Eat Cool: Good Food for Hot Days' had us convinced it was the best version of haricot verts we've ever had. Haricot verts are the more refined version of green beans; they are thinner, longer and straighter and more refined in taste. This dish is great for summer or fall parties because it can be served room temperature or even cold, and the beans stay firm throughout the party. Enjoy!
