Soft Shell Tacos

Handmade soft-shell tacos. This is a wonderful tactile experience – a step in the direction of slow living.

I am sure this is a wonderful thing…

Walnut Parmesan

The Parmesan-like sprinkles in the Nutballs photo is a delicious walnut Parmesan replacement made from just 4 ingredients – walnuts, nutritional yeast, salt, olive oil. I can eat it by the handful it is so satisfying and tasty. Great on pasta or salad or anywhere you would use Parmesan.
