Dinner ideas.... what do you make for dinner when you have a bunch of chicken thighs?
It's January and many people are on Whole30 looking for comfort food right about now. Nothing says healthy comfort food like a Coconut Curry Chicken recipe, and my friends, boy do we have one to share with you today.
This dish is better than Costco's Lemon Chicken Piccata recipe and one that I think you will be coming back for over and over again. Serve it up with our Fire Cider Kale Crunch Salad and you are going to have one tasty meal!

So what's up with chicken thighs?
Chicken thighs are a cheaper cut of meat but many of us have been raised over the decades to believe that dark meat is not as healthy for us. Dark meat tends to come with more fat and isn't as lean as white meat. While the information on healthy fats vs bad fats has changed over time, the currant standing is that healthy fats are necessary to a balanced diet and hold their place on the menu. So it's...
Happy Fall Y'all!

Did you know that you can cook with tea and not just drink it? One of our Super Fan's and V.I.P. Members, Kris Miller, sent us this lovely recipe using Golden Turmeric Spice Tea in a curry dish. What makes it super fantastic is that not only is it yummy, not only does it have anti-oxidant packed turmeric in it BUT Kris is also a culinary student at a local college! Training as a professional chef she used her culinary skills to cook up something fantastic! It even made it on the college menu :)
This lovely recipe takes wonderful fresh veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, red pepper and pairs them with chicken/shrimp along with the spice that comes from our Golden Turmeric Tea. This tea is packed with spicy goodness! Organic Turmeric, Organic Ginger, Organic Clove, Organic black pepper, organic cinnamon and some of our farm grown marigold flowers! Organic marigolds - just for the record we are not certified but use organic growing methods!

Oh winter. The last few weeks of the wet and the rain in Oregon really start to get to a person. It's dark, its gloomy. ITS WET! Really wet, like slip around outside when its wet, wet.
We spend much more time in the house than we care to but there is so little to do in so much rain and mud. There is no garden to work on - its too cold. The animals are hunkered down just like us. The only thing to do is to make a mess in the kitchen - I mean be creative in the kitchen. ( As I look behind me to see if the Farmer' saw me type those words... ah hem.)
I have sort of a reputation for being a mad scientist in the kitchen. I think its usually the after math of my creativeness that gives me that reputation. The latest inspired mess - I mean creation - came from a tea called Lapsang Souchong. Lapsang is a special black tea from China that is smoke-dried over a pine-wood fire. It's known as the smoked tea.
Let me tell you what, that is the best name...
