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!

Warm Red Cabbage Slaw

Red (or purple) cabbage is such a beauty on the plate, but did you know it has great health benefits as well! It's packed with lots of vitamins, especially vitamin C. And it could help lower your blood pressure. It's anti-inflammatory qualities may also help with digestive problems.

Maybe a heart healthy dish for Valentine's Day?

Is this the new Kale?!?

2 cups thinly shredded red cabbage
3/4 cup shredded carrot
1 apple, sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1-2 tbsps avocado oil
1-2 tsps balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable or chicken broth, apple juice or water
salt and pepper to taste

Swirl the avocado oil in a large skillet to coat the bottom then heat to medium and add the cabbage, carrot, apple and green onions. Sauté 5 minutes.

Then add your liquid of choice and balsamic vinegar. 

Cover, reduce heat to the lowest setting, and cook for 45 minutes to an hour stirring every 15 minutes. Don't rush it, keep it low and slow so it doesn't burn and the apple doesn't turn to mush.

Serves 4
