Meyer Lemon Cornmeal Cake

This rustic cake can be sliced and served or toasted before serving. You can serve it with any kind of fruit compote, fresh fruit, ice cream or cream. It was delicious.

To make a simple compote place fruit (I used plums) that have been peeled, pitted and sliced into a stainless steel pan. For 12 plums I used ½ cup water and ½ cup sucanat. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally,  for twenty minutes, then cool before serving.

If you don’t have Meyer Lemons around you can substitute regular lemon, orange or even tangerine zest. 

Yield: Makes 8 servings

The Tipping Point

I just finished taking a fabulous 5 session GMO activist training with Jeffrey Smith. He’s so knowledgeable about GMO’s and about how to pass along the information about them in an empowering way.  This year the focus is to reach the tipping point where consumers outright reject GMO’s.  Monsanto would like us to just eat organic foods to avoid GMO’s but what will really make an impact is when we are telling the processed food companies that we will not eat there products until they are GMO free.  See our ‘What You Can Do’ page for the phone numbers of the Frankenfood Fifteen, https://momsforsafefood.org/What_we_can_do.html

They can make their same products, in exactly the same way but without the GMO ingredients. Since I don’t what my kids to be the lab rats for the untested GMO food, I am boycotting any processed foods until they no longer use any GMO ingredients. If we hit them in their profit margin, they will pay attention!

Here’s an article from Jeffrey Smith, posted with permission.

Easy Egg Custard

Here’s another custard recipe that I decided to try this past week. You don’t need to scald the milk just mix everything together and bake. It was just as good as last weeks Sweet Potato Custard and even easier to make.  Everyone loved this one!

SERVINGS: 6

4 large eggs

1/3 cup rapadura, honey, maple syrup or organic sugar

Organic Sweet Potato Custard

We had a left over sweet potato that the kids weren’t eating so I started looking for recipes and found this one. It was fantastic!  It’s very easy and a fancy enough dessert to serve to company. I think it would also work well with pumpkin (will try that next).  My husband has already requested that I make it again.

Ingredients:

    * 1 3/4 cups whole organic raw milk

    * 3 large pastured eggs

A Day of No GMO Demonstrating

(Sheila and I at the Demonstration)

We had a wonderful gathering yesterday at the San Diego Convention Center. 

There was a Science Conference, and Monsanto was there talking about their ‘sustainable’ plans for the future of food.  (It’s unconscionable that they’re using the word ‘sustainable’ in their talks about the devastating destruction they are doing to our food and environment)

I first heard about the demonstration last Wednesday from my friend Sheila. (thank you Sheila!) She belongs to a San Diego Community Farm & Garden meet up group and it was Carly who first suggested getting people together to demonstrate.

1 organic onion, minced
