Nothing says Holiday Season in our house like Peppermint Bark!  It's a delicious treat that's easy to make with all the high quality chocolate here in the bay area.   Make some for home and to share with friends!

Here's a list of ingredients:

12 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
 (Ghiradelli of course!)
1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
1 pound good-quality white chocolate, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
3 candy canes or 12 round hard peppermint candies, crushed

Directions:

Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, shiny-side up; smooth out any wrinkles.
Heat 1 inch of water in a saucepan over low heat until steaming.

Put all but 3/4 cup of the semisweet chocolate in a heatproof bowl.
Set the bowl over the saucepan of steaming water (do not let the bowl touch the water) and stir until one-third of the chocolate is melted.
Remove the bowl from the saucepan; keep the steaming water over low heat.
Gradually stir the reserved 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate into the bowl, a few pieces at a time, until all of the chocolate is melted.
Return the bowl to the saucepan, 5 to 10 seconds at a time, to help melt the chocolate, if needed. Do not rush this step: It may take up to 10 minutes to melt the chocolate.

Wipe off any moisture from the bottom of the bowl. Stir 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract into the chocolate, then quickly pour into the prepared baking dish and spread in an even layer. Firmly tap the dish against the counter to remove any air bubbles. Set aside at room temperature until almost set, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, put all but 1 cup of the white chocolate in a large heatproof bowl and repeat the melting process over the steaming water; dry off the bottom of the bowl.
Stir in the remaining 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract; pour over the semisweet chocolate and spread in an even layer.
Sprinkle immediately with the crushed candy canes, gently pressing them into the white chocolate.
Set aside at room temperature until firm, about 1 hour. Lift the bark out of the pan using the foil and break it into pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Happy Holidays!

Pumpkin is rich in Vitamin A and antioxidants.  The kids will love these Pancakes shaped like ghosts!  Perfect for the little ones or even the older more discerning eaters in your home!

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a healthy diet.  Whenever possible purchase Wild Salmon as opposed to farmed Salmon.  This is super easy to make with only a few ingredients and good for you too!

Ingredients

8 fresh wild salmon fillets, 3/4 inch thick (or cut your own with about 1- 1/2 pounds) Freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 orange
4 tsp cornstarch
1-3/4 cups of Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp brown sugar

Instructions

Place the fish into a 2 quart shallow baking dish and sprinkle with black pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake @ 350 for 15 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Grate 1 tsp of orange zest and squeeze 1 tbsp juice from the orange, set aside.
In a 2 quart saucepan, heat the cornstarch, broth, vinegar, brown sugar, orange juice and zest over medium-high heat to a boil.
Cook and stir until the moisture thickens.

Plate the salmon, spoon the sauce over the fillets and serve!
*This sauce is nice over grilled salmon too!

Add jasmine rice, lentils, potatoes and even orange slices on the side ~ enjoy!

Peaches are in season at the Farmer's Market and they are amazing!  Here's a great peach and arugula salad that will  turn your bacon lover into a salad eater!

Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
3 firm ripe peaches
18 thin slices of pancetta
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
10 ounces of Baby Arugula
2 ounces of crumbled Feta Cheese

Dressing:
Whisk vinegar, lemon juice and salt and add olive oil in a stream and continue whisking until emulsified.

Peaches:
Taking the skin off the peaches is super easy and kids love to do it!  Boil some water and mark an X on the bottom of the peach with a knife.  
Drop in the boiling water for only 15 seconds and then transfer to a bowl of ice water.
Peel the peaches and cut into 6 sections each.
Wrap the peaches with pancetta.
Heat a skillet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on moderate heat, then cook the peaches (in 2 batches if necessary)
Turn them over occasionally until pancetta is   browned on all sides.
Divide arugula and peaches  among 6 plates, drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with feta cheese, a pinch of freshly ground pepper and serve!

Bon Appetit!
