Forest Feast

Zoe Bowden - Monday, April 23, 2012

Forest Feast is a blog that makes me hungry…

Created by Erin Gleeson, a girl who moved from the city to the country and who creates the most beautiful photos and visual recipes…yum…

So simple, so clever and so yummy…

I might have to go and cook something now – I am hungry!

Spring has sprung in the woods! Passover is this week and to kick it off, we hosted a first-night Seder.  We spent 2 days cooking all the traditional Jewish dishes: Matzah ball soup, Haroset (a paste of dried fruit and nuts), Farfel (quiche-like squares), Tzimmes (a sweet potato carrot dish), plus a roasted chicken with rosemary and lemon. The seder plate has items that represent different parts of the meal and the Passover story of slavery and freedom, including a hard boiled egg, horseradish, parsley, matzah, a shank bone and the modern addition of an orange. In this story of Exodus, when the Jews fled Egypt, they didn’t have time for their bread to rise, so this week we eat matzah instead of bread as a reminder that there are still people today who seek freedom.

This salad is so simple and colorful. Just slice or chop 2 carrots, 1 purple cabbage, 5 radishes and 2 blood oranges. Toss together with a handful of golden raisins. Make a simple dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and the juice from one more blood orange. Use a couple of the outer cabbage leaves as bowls for a pretty look. A wintery citrusy delight!Photos and Illustration © Erin Gleeson

space to think

Zoe Bowden - Monday, February 27, 2012

I sometimes wish I could escape the reality of work and phones and roads and television for a place that is quiet and peaceful, a place that life can be lived in a very simple way....

A place where all you can hear is your own breathing, the wind outside and the firewood crackling on the fire

A place that gives you huge amounts of time to think and be inspired

There are places like this, they exist.....who would have known....

I have just come across this great blog completely dedicated to these places....called Cabin Porn

My idea of heaven.....thanks guys at Beaver Brook
