Bone Marrow Butter

bone marrow butter

Bone Marrow Butter is a little exotic, a little decadent, and whole lot of delicious yumminess packing an out-of-this-world nutritional punch.

I’d never imagined it, let alone tasted it, until a couple of weeks ago when I was attending Monica Corrado’s Teacher Training at Sunrise Ranch, CO. Sous Chef Ace Linne-Speidel brought it out at dinner our first evening there, all while extolling the virtues of roasted marrow from grass-fed cows and appreciating the depth and quality of grass-fed butter.

As the week progressed, he whipped his Bone Marrow Butter into mashed sweet potatoes at lunch, spread it over grass-fed steaks with breakfast, and brought it to the table for students to use with abandon on slices of homemade sourdough.

I couldn’t get enough of it. Needless to say, as soon as I got home I whipped up a batch of Bone Marrow Butter.

Any Fruit Crumble (Grain-Free)

Any Fruit Grain-Free Crumble

Even though we are in the midst of winter and rich comfort foods surround us – sometimes a bit of freshness can liven up the gray, snowy skies! A taste of summer can truly make any season brighter. That is why I present to you my Any Fruit Crumble. This recipe is so versatile, you can use any fruit or berry you like (for example, I used peaches in one and blueberries in another).

The sweet brightness of the fruit and the rich, decadence of the crumble makes this the perfect dessert – plus it’s grain-free! If so desired, pair it with your favorite ice cream – even in the deep freeze of winter.

Moving Makes Me Want to Start a Bonfire

weekend book love

This weekend, I’m helping my parents move. It’s their first move in nearly 20 years. My mother has generously asked me to help arrange and decorate their new home. I’m opening up boxes, holding each of their treasures in my hands, and thinking “what am I going to do with this?”

They have a LOT of stuff.

Now, I’ve moved many times in my adult life — an average of once every two years. And every time I’ve moved I’ve used it as an opportunity to part with a lot of clutter. My father once said, “The very idea of moving makes me want to pile all my possessions in the middle of the living room floor and light a match.”

I understand.

Who Am I?

My name is Kristen Michaelis. I'm a nutrition educator, author, and mother of three. I adore hats, happy skirts, horizons full of storm clouds, the full-bodied feel of wind as I ride motorcylces, reading in my hammock, and a hearty shot of Caol Ila scotch. I'm also a rebel with a cause.
