Each harvest… Read more »


Cashew Gravy

Posted by & filed under recipe.

We’re revisiting this long-time favourite recipe, an amazing flavour booster for so many dishes. Gravy doesn’t have to be meat-based, and even if you do like meat-based gravy this recipe is a deliciously great variation. This cashew gravy livens up veggies, meats, seafoods and grains. It’s been known to be drizzled over an entire plate… Read more »

Growth and Production Approximately 80% of the world’s almond crops are harvested from the drought-stricken state of California. They are ranked as California’s top agricultural export and largest tree nut crop in both dollar value and land usage.

Candied Toffee Almonds

For those who don’t receive our annual newsletter, we thought you should also know about this recipe! I love these sweet almonds, although I have made the same recipe with a number of other nuts with great success.

Hemp Greek Salad

Posted by & filed under recipe.

Greek salad has become a favourite salad of mine over the last few years, perfect in the summer and fall when fresh veggies are plentiful. I love having a big bowl, it satisfies my hunger and cravings while being primarily a vegetable-based meal. Because of the high vegetable content, I like to mix in some… Read more »


Date Squares

Posted by & filed under recipe.

Growing up, date squares were a dessert my mother would always make. While she’s a very talented cook, she never loved baking sweets. The beauty of these squares is that they’re not nearly as finicky as many desserts, and the flexibility makes them great for those who may not love baking or are still learning…. Read more »

I know we’ve shared this recipe before in our summer newsletter, but I feel it’s worth revisiting due to its popularity!
