HAPPY AUTUMN

This is actually a Spring, Summer, and Autumn greeting all rolled into one… It has been far too long since I gave GreenLeaf Kitchen any love. I let all the busy and distracting bits of my crazy life get the better of me. (you can read this post for a […]

WELCOME 2018!

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.

ORANGE STEWED CHICKEN

Here is a recipe to warm your kitchen and your tummy, a tender, fall-off-the-bone “stewed” chicken. It is delicious as is, on top of salad, with a grain, in tacos… you can use it as the base for another dish; lasagna, enchilada, casserole… If your pot (I use one of […]

Winter Chai Tea

WINTER CHAI TEA

Every fall when the weather turns cooler and the days grow shorter. I get a craving for foods that accentuate the season. At Green Leaf Kitchen we spend a lot of time thinking about the social and emotional, as well as the healthful aspects of food. Many of our habits […]

I love having delectable spreads waiting in the fridge. Having something tasty and healthy […]

ROASTED DELICATA SQUASH AND CAULIFLOWER SALAD

It’s almost too hard to believe that the holidays are already upon us. Christmas tree lots are starting to pop up on every corner, gift guides are a plenty, and the urge I have to watch Clark Griswold string 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights over and over again is growing […]

VEGAN “CHEESY” FLAX CRACKERS

For the most part I don’t miss grains. But I do miss crackers. Life without crunch is so very stale. And I find myself craving a foundation for all the yummy spreads and dips I have around. “Necessity is the mother of invention” (this implies crackers are a necessity, which […]

Lori Klocek, Farm with sunflowers

LORI’S STORY

I have been always been aware of the importance of health, of eating healthy foods, and of exercise. I would read the latest health news; that fat is bad, that fat is good, that we should all get more whole grains, that pasta is a no no, and on and […]

Gluten Free waffles with Banana and walnuts

BANANA ALMOND FLOUR WAFFLES

By the time the weekend rolls around, my kids and I are looking to change things up from our morning Breakfast Soup. When asked very nicely (it’s hard to say no to a super cute 7-year-old) for waffles, I decided it was time to experiment, the results were delicious, and […]
