Easy Ketchup from Scratch with BBQ Potato Springs


Homemade Ketchup and Potato Springs

Homemade ketchup tastes so much better than its commercial counterpart. Here is a simple recipe that only takes about 15 minutes of active cooking time and a few hours passive. I haven’t tried it as a barbecue sauce yet, but I think it would make a good one!

Potato Springs

We made some potato springs to go with it. To make these by hand, pierce a potato with a metal skewer (you can easily find these at the dollar store). Take a knife and, starting at one end, cut a continuous spiral around the potato.

Holiday Cranberry Almond Loaf

Holiday Cranberry Almond Loaf Slice

Around Thanksgiving time, I always buy extra bags of fresh cranberries to pop into the freezer. They are so difficult to find off-season, and it’s such a treat to eat them when they are scarce. This Holiday Cranberry Almond Loaf is my favorite cranberry recipe.

It is a variation of the Thanksgiving Cranberry Bread recipe found in one of my favorite cookbooks Recipes for a Small Planet the Solution. (The best place to look for this book is in second-hand stores. If you find a copy, keep it!)

Pina Kale-Ada Smoothie


Pina Kale-Ada Smoothie

Do like Pina Kale-Adas? And getting caught in the rain?

Yes! Yes, I do! With all the rain we’ve been having lately, I could use a Pina Colada on a nice, sunny beach! But since it’s noon and I’ve been sitting at my desk for three hours straight already (tsk tsk!), I’m going to do the next best thing: Blend up a Pina Kale-ada and dance to Rupert Holmes in my kitchen.

With a couple servings of vegetables and protein and a bit of exercise, I’ll be set up for a productive afternoon. This recipe makes three cups, which is enough for two people. Personally, I drink the whole thing!

Here’s the song if you’d like to escape with me:

About Us

Authors: Nicole L'Esperance and Marie L'Esperance

Easy Recipes from Scratch is a cookbook series featuring healthy recipes that can easily be made at home from scratch. It is published by Marie and Nicole, a mother/daughter team.

Our goal is to use as many natural, home-cooked ingredients as we can for maximum health benefits. Not only is food made from scratch much healthier--since we can control exactly what goes into it-- but homemade cooking has an energy or spirit to it, imparted by the love and attention of the cook, that can never be bottled or packaged in a manufacturing plant. Ever!

We use all natural ingredients that are affordable and can easily be found in the average supermarket, farmer’s market, or grown in your own backyard. We do not use canned soups, bottled dressings, or pre-made food in our recipes.

The cookbooks can be found in the Amazon Kindle store as e-books. (In the near future, we will print physical copies of our books.) Kindle books can be viewed on the Amazon Kindle or on the iPad, Android Tablets, PC, or Mac with the free Kindle reading app.
