I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Kohlrabi, Carrot and Apple Slaw

This is my very first Kohlrabi. I didn't even know what it was when I bought it! But hey, gotta try new things!

1 small kohlrabi, peeled and shredded
1 medium carrot, unpeeled and shredded
1 apple, unpeeled and sliced (I used Yellow Delicious)
1 large radish, shredded
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp honey
2 tbsps sunflower seeds
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of celery seeds

The face I make when I'm not sure what to do with kohlrabi...

Peel the kohlrabi then shred it using a box grater. (It has a slight turnipy smell) Wash and scrub the carrot, apple and radish and shred or slice. As I said, I used a Yellow Delicious apple here but a tart Granny Smith would work too!  

Combine the orange juice, zest, lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper and celery seeds and pour into your bowl. Toss and refrigerate and couple of hours for the flavours to develop. And the apple won't go brown because of the acid in the oj and lemon juices.

Add some sunflower seeds when ready to serve.
