Salmon Baked in Cream with Sweet Bay, Thyme, and Dill

It makes me so happy seeing all the real food cookbooks reaching the mainstream market lately. Jenny’s new cookbook The Nourished Kitchen practically bursts at the seams with nutrient-dense recipes. Here’s a sampling of the recipes you’ll find: Yogurt and Cheddar Cheese Soufflé with Chives, Roasted Pumpkin with Spiced Sorghum Syrup, Sweet Molasses Baked Beans with Bacon and Toasted Mustard Seeds, and Honey Meringues. The recipes and advice are ideal if you’re looking to find better health and nourishment through the foods you eat.

Jenny does a great job explaining why our bodies need specific nutrients, how to find these nutrients in food and how to best utilize the ingredients to create stunning dishes. The book features grains in some recipes, but I love that she explains how to prepare the grains properly, assuring proper digestion and assimilation of the nutrients. From pickling to fermenting to sprouting – she shares a wealth of knowledge to help you fill your kitchen with nourishing foods.  

The Nourished Kitchen - A Wonderful Cookbook Full of Nutrient-Dense Recipes!

I tried Jenny’s Salmon Baked in Cream with Sweet Bay, Thyme and Dill and it was a huge hit with the family. It only took a few minutes to assemble the dish before putting it in the oven. I made a salad while it was baking and had dinner on the table in about 20 minutes. We plan to enjoy this dish again and again!

To celebrate the release of Jenny’s book, we’re giving away one copy of The Nourished Kitchen. Please see widget below to enter:

Mango Lassi Smoothie

Frozen mango makes for a luxurious, creamy smoothie and a nice way to start the day.

Last week, the New York Times announced that a “large and exhaustive new analysis by a team of international scientists found no evidence that eating saturated fat increased heart attacks and other cardiac events.”.  This latest study only affirms this study from […]
