Cider-Poached Apples

Cider-poached apples are just the thing when you don’t have time to make a full-on pie. They cook up quickly and fragrantly and may be enjoyed numerous ways.  Spoon on some yogurt, sprinkle with walnuts or granola and call it breakfast.  Serve with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle with the apple cider syrup and you have dessert. Serve alongside roast pork or chicken or even grilled sausages for an amazing side.  You may also add all sorts of fun things to the poaching liquid:  cloves, orange peel, lemon peel, a vanilla bean, star anise, grated nutmeg, cardamom, etc…

Muffins in the Morning

stay basic blueberry muffins

Hi, I’m Mia. I am a Farmers To You customer, and a blogger whose focus is on infusing families with plant-based, homemade foods. I will be showing up here a few times a month to share how I am using Farmers to You ingredients, as well as some tips, tricks and mindset tweaks that I have used to cook from scratch, menu plan, make space for family dinners, and more.

So today, let’s talk muffins….

When I first got into this whole notion of plant-based foods and raw food, I was not the cook in the house – in fact I was far from it!

Spring Shoot, Radish and Feta Salad

IMG_0708

Snappy and crisp Screamin’ Ridge radishes paired with Pete’s delicate and tender shoots and Willow Moon Farm’s salty goat feta – yum!  That combo alone would be great, but I impulsively threw in some chopped dates for a smidge of sweet & chewy, and toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for an extra crunch.  I used what my son calls the “good” dressing on this, but really most any vinaigrette would work. Spring Shoot, Radish and Feta Salad Print Serves: 2-3 Ingredients

  • 1 3 oz.
