Citrus Salad with Spiced Honey

These last few weeks have been that time in winter when I want to enjoy the romance of the snow falling, but am struggling to do so. The holidays are over, but winter has stayed. Christmas and New Years make the snow and frigid cold totally acceptable, but what now? It is still cold, and snowing! I try day after day to romanticize about those snowflakes drifting through the air but recently those snowflake dances in my head have been halted by being chilled… all the time.

This salad is a plate of fresh reality. I have to embrace the cold, eat superfoods, and bundle up.

I also just started experimenting with backlight in my photos and absolutely love it, I love taking photos, and I am always hoping for a perfectly lit day so I can take photos of whatever I am making in my kitchen. The day I took these photos I totally lucked out with lighting, and love how the citrus salad looks! I had trouble resisting the urge to forgo photos and eat the food.

I hope that you are fighting this cold weather with delicious health food! The only way to get through the winter is by eating.

Thanks for stopping by, catch you later,

  4. Hi there. I know I’ve never commented before, but I’ve followed Cupcakes Always Win for a few months now. I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award. You’re welcome to accept and play along, or not. I won’t mind. If you do, the details are in my blog post: http://fascinatorium.com/2014/02/19/im-so-honored-and-other-things-i-might-be-lying-about/

    • What an honour! Thanks so much! It’s so kind of you to think of me. I will have to pass on playing along, but I will be sure to check out what’s going on, on your webpage. Happy baking! Do you do a lot of vegan baking?

      • Hi there. I haven’t done as much baking yet. I’ve got a few cookbooks (though I’m not sure they’re strictly vegan?) that I enjoy as much for the education on transitioning to new ingredients as the (potential) recipes, especially the Supernatural Cooking books by Heidi Swanson. But, your site is particularly inspiring! Best of luck!
