Spirit Fire Smoothies

April 12, 2018

~Adapted by Tanya Renner~ Last weekend I was honored to lead a grace filled weekend retreat at Spirit Fire in Leyden, MA.

Spring Carrot Salad

April 6, 2018

Carrot salad has always been a weeknight standard in the Hubele salad rotation. It’s a quick prep when time is limited and because it only improves with an overnight in the fridge, it makes for a welcome lunch the following day. This Heidi Swanson version however takes carrot salad to the next level and is well…

Tea Lights

Solstice is just around the corner, and I’ve put together a lovely spread you want to share with family or friends and mark the return to light in the weeks ahead.

In search of new fall recipes, I ordered Salma Hage’s, The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook. Having thoroughly enjoyed my time spent pouring over recipes, I certainly located some winners. And now I am looking forward to some cooler temps (in Austin that means under 100 degrees) in order to test and share my favorites. As a sneak preview, you might want to try Hage’s Date Tahini & Cinnamon Smoothie. I’ve been a fan of date, banana, and raw cacoa smoothies…

rosti

One of the most simple and enjoyable lunches Oma prepares in a flash is Kartoffel Rosti and salad. We convinced her to make it one more time during our last week in Oehringen, but challenged her to do so in slow motion so Sebastian and I could learn. While slowing Marianne down in the kitchen is no easy task, she is a fabulous teacher and can break down the steps of her tried and true recipes in such a way…

Kartoffel und Mangold

Jul 7, 2017 | 2 Comments

One of the most enjoyable experiences during my summers in Germany is preparing locally inspired meals directly from the garden and this kartoffel und mangold is a fine example of how simple ingredients with simple preparation can be so delicious. It all began when Oma, who keeps a keen eye on what is ripe and ready to eat in the garden, announced that the mangold (chard) must be eaten. Further, it was quickly determined that it would be prepared with…
