I was skeptical but now I am a believer. If you separate your bananas from the bunch, they ripen more slowly. Am I last to the dance?

Wifey, the famous molecular biologist, has been saying this for about 3 years.

God meant bananas to be mixed with heavy cream, a pinch of vanilla extract and some confectioner's sugar.

toss in the blender with some Kale, mixed berries, substitute with coconut milk and you've a pretty yummy vegan smoothy - honestly the kale doesn't really get in the way - at least that's what my wife tells me

It's surprising she doesn't through a couple of gloves of garlic in that too

I used to think that food from a blender was for after you lost your teeth. Since I got the Margarita machine, my outlook has changed.

Have you tried blender kale ice cream? Last week I did "Cabala" carrot, apple, beet, apple, lemon, apple. Tasted better in the juicer, talk about fiber.

now that sounds interesting

Last night's soup - Yams, tomatoes, ginger, coconut milk, kale, garlic, sauteed onions, tumeric, cumin (no jokes, now kids), cayenne, veggie broth - you know, 1hr of prep time on all those veggies, then 20min cooking and 5 mins with the hand held blender -

I'd almost like to complain about the huge cut back on meat over the past couple of years, but with the right recipes this veggie stuff is so freaking tasty

only downside, is that some weeks I think too much fiber - and you know what I mean

Such coincidence, Sunday's veggie course...

Roast chopped califlower and carrots for 45min while making a sauce of mushrooms, leeks, roasted red/yellow/orange peppers, turmeric, pepper (do read about black pepper activating the turmeric), cumin, garlic, ginger, cardamom, allspice, all into the blender.

Cook everything together for another 15 min while wilting baby kale into it.

I mortar and pestle all the spices very fine and sautee them in ghee before adding.

If we are done with the kale...

This year for St. Patrick's day i learned an Irish recipe called "Dublin Coddle". Only the Irish would make a stew of sausage and bacon.

Fry a frightening quantity of bacon until just cooked, remove from pan. Brown some sausages in the bacon fat. Remove, and pour off excess fat (I added that bit). Now fry some sliced onions in the remaining fat, add back sausages cut into large pieces, the bacon, cubed potatoes, carrots (optional), water to almost cover, chopped fresh parsley. Feel free to add a bay leaf, thyme, etc. Also feel free to use chicken stock and/or beer instead of water (no wine though, this isn't French cooking!). Simmer while you go out to the pub, eat when you get home.
