A Delicious Relationship

Recently I was introduced to the wonderful products from Living Tree Community Foods, based out of Berkeley, CA.  I have been very privileged to have been sent so many fantastic and delicious nut butters to sample and to create new recipes with.  More Treats from Living Tree Community Foods and New Products to Sample .  Everything I have tried is absolutely amazing.  All their products are fresh and organic, made mostly from ingredients coming from local California farmers, as well as farmers from Oregon, Texas and Vermont.  I have no shortage of ideas on how to use these wonderful products.  My only problem is that there are way too many recipes to create and not nearly enough time.  Lack of time has always been my nemesis.  So far, I have created a chocolate almond butter tart, using the almond butter and the almond meal Chocolate Almond Butter Tart , cashew cookies Frosted Cashew Butter Cookies and cashew shrimp and vegetables Cashew Shrimp and Vegetables with the cashew butter and today, I will be creating something with the walnut butter that was recently sent to me.  The February edition of the Living Tree Community Foods Newsletter has showcased my recipe for the frosted cashew cookies.   WOW!!!!  Thank you so much.  This is a huge honor for me.  Please check it out.  You can find their newsletter, as well as all their delicious products on their website at http://www.livingtreecommunity.com.   Living Tree Community Foods and I have entered into a very delicious relationship that I hope continues to grow and prosper.  I am so very grateful for this opportunity to work with Living Tree Community Foods.  I hope you are all enjoying these dishes and recipes as much as I am enjoying creating them.   Most of my recipes allow for you to be creative too.  For instance, most, although not all, of my savory dishes can easily be converted to either vegetarian or vegan dishes simply by substituting the meats for vegetarian/vegan friendly proteins, or  by just eliminating the meats entirely and using only vegetables.  I can easily cook and adjust menus to please all palettes.  I just need to know who I am cooking for, and what their dietary requests are, then I will stir my magic wooden spoon and make it happen.




My most recent package of tasty nut butters came just a few days ago.  I will be busy creating more delicious recipes with these new products as soon as time allows.  Be patient.  Many, many more good things are still yet to come.


I will be creating something from the walnut butter tonight.  Stay tuned.  You don’t want to miss it.
