Freshly Roasted Organic Peruvian Coffee Beans

Making a Supreme Cup of Coffee from Beans
Summer is the time to experiment with cold cafe pressed coffee and iced coffee treats. Now you can still enjoy it hot but perhaps you'll want to add in some exotic, non-dairy creamers. I'm starting out with whole organic Laird's Peruvian Medium Roasted Coffee Beans, ground to perfection in my VitaMix Dry Grains Container.

Spring Grilling Rain or Shine with ButcherBox and Cuisinart

April Showers bringing May Flowers? No problem. Bring the smoke with these indoor grilling tips!

April is notorious for showers even though the temps are starting to rise. If you are holding off on planning a cookout until the weather clears, there's no need to. Make your plans but have a backup plan to grill indoors. You'll get the same grill marks and smokey flavor with better control over your cooking temperatures using an indoor grill. So easy. I'll show you how!

Wipe your indoor grill down with a small amount of olive oil.  Top meat with onion & garlic coconut oil.
