Learn How To Cook – A Recipe A Day

by Alexandra Carmichael

Ever feel stuck in a cooking rut? Or want to pass along a love of cooking and knowledge of healthful food to your kids?

Here’s what we’re doing this year as a homeschooling cooking project…

We’re taking recipes from these two blogs and cooking one every day.

In this corner: Gary Alinder is legendary chef of the Peninsula Macrobiotic community in Palo Alto, and after decades of cooking incredible meals every Monday night, he has finally started publishing some of his recipes.

In that corner: Cynthia Lair is author of my all-time favorite cookbook, Feeding the Whole Family (I’ve made almost every recipe in this treasure of a book), and she has also posted recipes and videos of her fantastic feasts online.

So my 2 daughters and I have taken on the challenge. A recipe a day, all year. We’ll be posting pictures and links occasionally. Here’s what we made this week:

.

Blanched Vegetables:

White Bean and Kale Minestrone:

Cranberry Walnut Muffins:

.

Mixed Greens with Balsamic Vinaigrette:

Caribbean Lime Halibut:

.

Tempeh Stroganoff:

Date Squares (ok, this is my Grandma’s recipe – let me know in the comments if you want it – sooo yummy!):

That was this week’s adventure. Stay tuned for more recipes!

Love, the 3 chefs. 🙂
