Curried Crab Cakes

A Jeanne in the Kitchen

Crab is a nutrient powerhouse, containing  loads of necessary vitamins and minerals that all contribute to good overall health.  It is an excellent source of selenium, which helps to keep the thyroid healthy.  There is 3x more selenium found in crab than there is in beef.  Aside from selenium, it is also a great source of B vitamins, protein and omega 3 fatty acids, all of which make for a healthy diet.  If possible, it is recommended to eat crab at least twice a week, although it can be pricey, and is often considered a luxury food, which might make it more difficult to eat that often.  I love crab, and can enjoy it any way it is cooked, but I admit that we don’t buy it that often because it is expensive.  But it sure is delicious, and I enjoy every bite of it when I do buy it. …

In loving memory: Grandma Weisbeck’s Dill Pickles

Purple Almond Wellness

My beautiful and amazing grandmother passed away yesterday at the age of 101.

fullsizeoutput_1127.jpeg

In her memory, I will be posting some articles today, which highlight a few of her personal recipes. These articles were originally posted in celebration of her 100th birthday.


Here’s my Grandmother on her 100th birthday…

img_4330One of my favorite meals my Grandma cooked for us was fried potatoes, homemade German sausage and her dill pickles. Of course the cucumbers and dill were always fresh from her own garden.They were amazing…of course I’m a bit biased. 🙂 My Grandma would give my mom several jars, and my friend Bobbie and I used to sneak some from my mom’s fridge. Bobbie loved these pickles…I think everyone did.

It’s been a long day so I won’t embellish with a lot of talk of memories. Here is her dill pickle recipe.

  • 16 cups water
  • 1 cup pickling salt
  • 2 cups…

Braised Beef Chilli con Carne

A food and lifestyle blog.

Now Christmas is over, I (and the rest of the nation), am dying to eat something ‘normal’. First world problem right? Christmas day was wonderful, but again, I had so much champagne that it got to a point where I couldn’t face drinking anymore – that’s when you know your life is actually pretty good! But today, I had some braising beef that needed using and instead of making a stew, I decided to make a chilli with it. Today was grey, cold and snowy so I wanted to make something tasty and warming – like a lot of my dishes lately! Chilli con Carne isn’t something I eat or make regularly but it turned out to be delicious and the beef was so succulent and tender, it is something I will definitely be making again.

It didn’t take long to prep and once it was all in the pot…

Allergy-free Friday: Red Lentil Waffles with Rosemary Pomegranate Syrup (Vegan/GF)

The Purple Almond!

Purple Almond Wellness

Today’s allergy-free recipe is a bit unusual, in that the main ingredient in these waffles are lentils.

Lentils are small legumes, which are easy to prepare and soak up flavors of other ingredients Lentils might be small, but they pack some nutritional power. One cup of lentils contains 230 calories and a WHOPPING 16 grams of fiber! (The RDA for fiber is 25 grams per day). The health benefits of lentils include:

  • Improved heart health-This is due to their fiber content, but vitamin and mineral content as well.
  • Improved blood sugar-Once again, the fiber content helps out, this time, stabilizing blood sugar.
  • Energy- The iron content of lentils can improve energy levels.
  • Digestive health-once again-FIBER!

Here is the vitamin and mineral content of lentils from whfoods.com.
