👯‍♀️Cardamom Oat Crepes👯‍♀️Ever since I won a @staub_usa crepe pan from @thedaleyplate ‘s awesome giveaway, my 5 year old has been asking for crepes constantly. So I came up with this version that is sure to please both the crepe and nutrition gods. They are light and pillowy with floral notes thanks to magical #cardamom. Like dessert for breakfast except #thenewhealthy way 🙌🏽
.
RECIPE
👯‍♀️In a food processor, blend 1 cup oat flour, 1 cup milk (haven’t tried non-dairy mylks but they should work fine), 2 eggs, pinch of salt, dash of vanilla, 1 tbsp honey or maple and 2-3 cardamom pods smashed and seeds ground (or 1/4 tsp ground cardamom). Make sure there are no lumps in the batter. Warm a crepe or other non-stick pan or skillet on medium heat. Add a small dollop of butter and brush evenly to coat the pan. Add 1/4-1/2 cup batter to the pan and swirl to make a thin crepe. After 1-2 minutes gently flip the crepe. Must admit a crepe spatula works really well here. Cook for another minute or so until you have a nice golden brown lattice pattern. Fold into a triangle or roll with your fav fillings. We have been enjoying chia jam (pictured here) or almond butter and maple. Fresh fruit is essential. A showering of raw cacao to keep things pretty. Dive in ❤️

RECIPE

Press the dough into a loaf pan. Stud with chocolate chips and cranberries and dust with Ceylon cinnamon. Freeze for 2-3 hours. Slice and enjoy!

🌿Coriander🌿Allow me to introduce one of my all time favorite, somewhat under appreciated spices - coriander 😍You’ve probably seen fresh coriander (or cilantro) leaves but have you ever smelled / eaten / cooked with coriander seeds?! I’m about to get you to do all of the above STAT. Let’s go🙌🏽👇🏽
.
.
🌿Coriander’s use dates back to the 2nd century BC when it was cultivated in Asia and Southern Europe - random, cool historical fact: it only arrived in North America in the 1600s.
🌿It was traditionally used as a perfuming agent (one whiff and you’ll know why mmmm) and to help digestion (hence added to beans and lentils in traditional recipes).
🌿Coriander is a member of the parsley fam and is widely consumed in India (where it’s called dhania), East Asia, Morocco, Northern and Eastern Europe and Russia.
🌿Moroccan coriander seeds are smaller and Indian ones larger #spicenerd #factoftheday
🌿Coriander seeds have warm, woodsy, citrus and pepper notes. To get the most of this spice, combine ground and gently crushed whole coriander seeds in recipes #gamechanger
🌿My favorite coriander pairings are roasted cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, beets, eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes. Also amazing in chicken and shrimp curries and hummus! 🌿Modern science has unearthed the anti-diabetic, cholesterol-improving, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial powers of this ancient spice.

Moroccan mint frittata muffins for @thefeedfeed @conscious_cooking Chinese New Year brunch today in Brooklyn💯

Amazing to connect with the faces behind these Instagram squares, swap cookbooks and kitchen items, taste incredible food, and snap a pic of my dish on this gorgeous marble slab set up by the feedfeed themselves (it was an instafoodie brunch after all ☺️).

It’s so important to take the conversation offline and into the real world where real connection must continue to happen. Thanks the feedfeed and Christine for facilitating that through a lovely event. Felt lucky and honored to be a part of it. Also stoked about my goodie bag with @gothamgreens basil, @sirkensingtons chipotle mayo, @healthade kombucha and @luciniitalia EVOO. Yum!

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive”. - Howard Thurman

When I started Spice Spice Baby in 2014, I wasn’t sure what the H I was doing. I was a PhD in Molecular Biology and had thus far been on a linear path. School, college, grad school, working in Biotech. It all made sense on paper. It looked good. But in my heart and soul, I knew this wasn’t it for me. I felt a calling that seemed off this linear path and boy was I afraid, embarrassed even, to listen to it. “How can I throw away all those degrees? All that training? Wait, now I’m gonna cook and write for a living? I’m not even a chef! Etc etc. You know those mental stories. They were loud.

But I did it anyway and 3 years later, thanks to your support, I crowdfunded and self-published my first cookbook and I’m proud of what I’ve put out. Every single day, I love what I do. Teaching you guys about spices, about food as medicine, and creating and sharing recipes for your family tables. And mine! Even though I may sometimes look very awkward doing it LOL (this shot ☝🏽😆)

So as we close yet another week, I am reminded of these words by Howard Thurman. And I wanted to share them with you in the hopes that they will inspire you to go and do whatever makes YOU feel alive. Whatever makes your heart sing. Because the linear path is not for everyone. And as Steve Jobs once said, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards”. So tell me — what makes you come alive? And then .... go do it 💪🏽💕✨#friday #musings #justdoit #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #mompreneur #motherhood #thenewhealthy #iamwellandgood #healthykids #create #beyou #nofear #listen #followyourheart | #spicespicebaby 📸 @livetheshot

As many of you know, we’ve been a virus-infested household for over a week now 😩🙈First my 5 yo got the flu, then hubby got a head cold aka the #manflu 😉 and then my 1 year old got the wonderful germs from her brother 🤒😷🤧😭I’m not trying to brag but this mama is still standing with a bit of a sniffle (Universe please don’t jinx me after this post).

I credit this to my my obsessive inhaling of my anti-microbial spiced chai and OD-ing on immunity-boosting foods like this #eattherainbow salad with a dressing that is packed with immune system strengthening ingredients. And if I may say so, it’s delicious 🙌🏽😍Without further ado, here’s the recipe. Hope it keeps you happy and healthy too 💕

I did chickpeas but you can do paneer, mushrooms, peas, mushrooms and peas, potatoes, cauliflower, chicken, you get the picture. The base sauce with cumin, coriander, garam masala, cayenne, onion, ginger, garlic, tomato and spinach gets blended into a creamy, cream-less sauce in the @vitamix Best enjoyed topped with fresh cilantro and a swirl of Greek yogurt. Recipe coming to the blog this Thursday (because one of my 2018 #goals is to focus on the #foodblog again whoop)👩🏽‍💻👩🏽‍🍳

Baby had a few bites but I think I overdid the cayenne so she she was like 😳5 yo will have it for dinner tonight with some rice and yogurt to mellow out the spice action. You could always skip the heat all together but what’s the fun in that?! ☺️😋

🌟Star Anise🌟Do you know it? Have you cooked with it? Guess what I’m going to say?! You should ☺️🙌🏽 #spices #rock
.
.
🌟Star Anise, a mahogany colored, 8 pointed star-shaped fruit has been used for 3000 years by the Chinese and Vietnamese as a culinary and medicinal aid.
🌟Traditional Chinese medicine recommends star anise to relieve pain, enhance appetite, and strengthen the kidneys.
🌟It has a licorice and anise-like flavor but is unrelated to anise or fennel.
🌟It’s commonly used whole or ground and is a key ingredient in Chinese Five Spice.
🌟It has a sweet, warm, floral, and slightly sour flavor that works well in both sweet and savory dishes.
🌟My favorite pairings are spiced chai, chicken broth (particularly great for the current #flu season - see below), roasted parsnips, poached pears and peaches, and meat and salmon.
🌟Modern science has discovered the anti-viral (especially when combined with quercetin like in onions - think Vietnamese pho 😋🍜), antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-cancer and estrogenic activity of this ancient spice mostly thanks to the active compound anethole.
🌟The FDA has warned against giving babies star anise tea for colic because of toxic effects from the contamination of Chinese star anise with the toxic Japanes variety (not meant to be eaten!)
If you’re still reading, thanks and hope it’s useful. You can learn more about star anise and 14 other spices in my recently released spice resource and cookbook - link in bio (scroll right for a sneak peak)☝🏽🌟What do you like to cook star anise with? #staranise #antiviral #foodismedicine #ancientwisdom #healthyfamily #kids #healthymama #pantry #nature #eeeeeats #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #momboss #getsmartaboutspices | #spicespicebaby 📸by the super talented @livetheshot

Remembering these wise words as I close out what seems like one of the longest and most challenging motherhood weeks in a while. Wishing all my fellow mamas a beautiful weekend and this wonderful reminder - you’re a good mama and that is good enough 💕✨
