Easy Tahini Cookie Recipe

Using sesame seed butter - either store bought or homemade - is egg, nut, soy, and dairy free. Sweetened with  honey, we used organic raw, and fruit, this delicious oatmeal base cookie is exceptionally easy. What you will need: 6 1/2 tablespoons of tahini (we think that peanut butter can be used - though the recipe will of course have nuts in it - the taste will not be quite the same but should work) 1/2 cup of honey 1/2-3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon 1 1/2 cups uncooked oats (quick cooking oats are optimal but old fashioned will work too) 1/2 cup chopped dates (and/or raisins, and/or banana, and/or chocolate chips, and/or walnuts) What you do: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). Grease your cookie sheet(s). ** We over greased our cookie sheet in fear the honey would crystalize and stick. Was a mistake. It does not appear much greasing is needed in our experience **. In a medium bowl, combine the tahini, honey and cinnamon. Mix in the oats and fruit(s)

Milky Way Bars Recipe - Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Reminiscent of the chocolate candy bar of the same name, these are actually pretty good for you. We made 1/3 recipe (we were afraid we’d eat them all otherwise), and it worked out just fine. Nougat Filling: 1 cup (250 ml.) raw almonds, unsoaked (dry) 1 cup (250 ml.) raw cashews, unsoaked (dry) 3 Tbsp. (45 ml.) agave nectar 1 Tbsp. (15 ml.) water, or more if needed Caramel Topping: 1 cup (250 ml.) dry unsweetened dates 1/4 cup (60 ml.) pure maple syrup juice of half a lemon 1 Tbsp. (15 ml.) coconut oil 1/4 tsp. sea salt 1 cup (250 ml.) water (I used much less–it would have been watery otherwise) “Milk” Chocolate Coating 1 cup (250 ml.) pure cocoa powder 1 cup (250 ml.) pure maple syrup 1/2 cup (125 ml.) coconut oil, melted 1/4 cup (60 ml.) water Soak the dates in the water and lemon juice for an hour. Drain and reserve soaking liquid. Meanwhile, make the nougat. Nougat: In a coffee grinder, grind the cashews in small batches into a fine powder. Remove. Process the almonds

Mustard! A Little History.

Do you cut the mustard? The first Saturday of August, is mustard day. Mustard Day was founded on a whim by Jill Sengstock in 1988, before changing hands  to the National Mustard Museum in 1991. It’s aim is rather self explanatory; to celebrate and honour one of the world’s most popular condiments. From Dijon to English, or a liberal helping on an All-American hotdog, this day your chance to voice your love (without looking a bit odd) for your favourite combination. Mustard itself is believed to be over 5000 years old, originating in India when it was first cultivated in 3000BC. It was then brought to Britain by the Romans who were the first to use it as a condiment and pickling spice! personal chefs and event catering Miami + Miami Beach + Fort Lauderdale + Palm Beach | 954-367-YADA (9232) fort lauderdale catering and personal chefs
