Happy, abundant, healthful, and delicious New Years wishes! In case you hadn’t noticed we took a longer hiatus than we intended. The original intention was to take two weeks off to give the three of us hardworking Green Leafers time to celebrate the holidays, enjoy our families and friends, organize and straighten out the loose-ends of 2017 life, maybe even travel a bit. Then start back refreshed and inspired.

As much as I love being in the kitchen, I find a lot of inspiration while traveling. Many times, it’s not specific recipe or food ideas, but the authenticity that comes from a small mom and pop establishment or a modern take on a classic at a hipster coffee shop.…
