Roasted Acorn Squash Risotto
Serves 4

 

Ingredients:

 

1 medium acorn squash, halved, seeded

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

4 cups light tasting vegetable broth (dilute with water if it’s too onion-y)

1 small onion, diced
3-4 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon gluten-free mild curry powder

Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste

1 1/2 cups raw short grain Arborio rice

1 cup white wine (optional; replace with broth if alcohol-free)

Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste

 

 

Options for garnish:

 

Chopped toasted pecans, slivered almonds or pine nuts.

Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Chopped fresh cranberries (shown)

 

Instructions:

 

First- Roast the acorn squash.

Preheat your oven to 400ºF.

Roast the acorn squash by placing the two halves cut side up in a baking dish; add about two inches of hot water into the bottom of the dish.

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the squash is fork tender.

Meanwhile- Start your risotto.

Heat the broth in a separate sauce pan, and keep it warm.

In a heavy medium saucepan, heat the olive oil on medium heat, and sauté the onion and garlic for 3 minutes.

Add the curry, nutmeg, and uncooked Arborio rice and stir well, until the rice is coated.

Stir and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
Add the wine and stir for a minute or two.

Pour in 1 cup of the hot broth, and bring to a simmer.

Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring frequently for 7-8 minutes.

When most of the liquid is absorbed, add the remaining cups of broth 1 cup at a time, stirring and simmering until each cup of liquid is absorbed before adding the next one.

(The whole process should take about 20-25 minutes; 22 minutes is my goal for al dente;

if you cook risotto too long it may get gummy.)

When the squash is done, remove it from the oven and using a spoon scoop out pieces and add them into the risotto- I like to do this along with the last cup of broth.

Stir to combine.

When the final cup of liquid is absorbed cover and set aside for a few moments before serving.

Risotto likes to rest a bit.

Warm up four serving bowls.

Spoon the risotto into the bowls, and garnish with some chopped toasted pecans, pine nuts or chopped fresh cranberries.

Essential Oils

 

Peppermint- Peppermint has a powerful, sweet, menthol aroma which, when inhaled undiluted, can make the eyes water and the sinuses tingle. Aromatherapy benefits: vitalizing, refreshing, cooling.

 

Bergamot- Bergamot oil is cold-pressed from the peel of the nearly ripe fruit. The aroma of bergamot oil is fresh, lively, fruity and sweet. It is an excellent deodorizer. It contains a constituent called bergaptene that increases the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. Bergamot BF means “bergaptene free.” Most of the sensitizing bergaptene constituent has been distilled out of this product but traces may still remain. Aromatherapy benefits: uplifting, inspiring, confidence-building.

 

Fennel- Sweet fennel oil has a very sweet, earthy, anise-like aroma due to its primary constituent, anethole. Sweet fennel usually contains more anethole than bitter fennel oil. Aromatherapy benefits: nurturing, supportive, restorative.

 

Marjoram- Sweet marjoram is distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the same plant that produces the culinary herb. The aroma of the oil is warm and spicy, with a hint of nutmeg. It is used in masculine, Oriental, and herbal-spicy perfumes and colognes. Wild marjoram, (see below) is often substituted for sweet marjoram, but the two are not interchangeable in aromatherapy. Aromatherapy benefits: warming, balancing.

 

Rosemary- Rosemary is known as the herb of remembrance. The plant produces an almost colorless essential oil with a strong, fresh, camphor aroma. It’s used in many citrus colognes, forest and Oriental perfumes, and eau de cologne. Rinses for dark hair often contain rosemary, as do room deodorants, household sprays, disinfectants and soaps. Aromatherapy benefits: clarifying, invigorating.

 

Chamomile- For Cancers, Roman chamomile is better because it contains only trace amounts of the intense blue component azulene, which gives German chamomile its color. This oil is commonly used in perfumery. It blends well with bergamot, jasmine, neroli and clary sage, lending a warm, fresh note when added in small quantities. The aroma is not long-lasting like that of the German chamomile but it is mild, soothing oil. Aromatherapy benefits: relaxing, calming.

 

Thyme- White thyme starts out as red thyme oil that has been further refined and redistilled to remove the constituents that produce the red color. The aroma and action of white thyme oil are a bit milder than that of red thyme. Both are used to scent soaps, colognes and aftershaves. Caution: Thyme oil can be irritating to the skin and should be used cautiously. Aromatherapy benefits: cleansing, purifying, energizing.

 

Anise- The oil of anise and star anise are often used and sold interchangeably because they are similar in aroma and chemical make-up. The primary constituent of both is anethole, a sweet substance that solidifies at room temperature. If this happens simply warm the bottle in a warm water bath until the oil liquefies. Aromatherapy benefits: cheering, mildly euphoric.

 

Lemon - Our lemon oil is cold-pressed, a much better oil than distilled. The scent is evocative of the fresh ripe peel. Lemon oil in the bath or in massage oils should be well diluted as it can cause skin irritation. Caution: avoid using the oil in body care products when going out into the sun as it can cause redness and burning of the skin. Aromatherapy benefits: uplifting, refreshing, and cheering.

 

 

Herbs

 

Rose- Indicated for: infections, diarrhea, and bladder problems.

 

Geranium- Improves cellular oxygenation, keep the immune system functioning properly, and rid the body of toxins and poisons, improved many illnesses, including rheumatoid arthritis, food allergies, elevated cholesterol, candidiasis, chronic viral infections, cancer, and AIDS.

 

Sage- Recommended for: central nervous system, digestion, reducing sweating and salivation, hot flashes, estrogen deficiency, mouth and throat problems (tonsillitis). Promotes hair growth. Decreases milk production in nursing mothers.

Mr. & Mrs. Taurus

May 14, 2013, 6:00 PM

0

By: Ann

 

 

Taurus has a fixed character. As it continues to rise in the sky, the sun heats the Earth. So it is with Taurus that the diurnal values of practicality, reality and materiality overpower the nocturnal values of the subconscious and imagination. Taurus is sociable, warm, likable, wholesome and welcoming. After the sparkle of Aries, which symbolizes the first signs of spring, comes Taurus, and with it the season takes root. Buds open, trees drive into the ground. Likewise, Taureans are rooted in life, and in their own life particularly, their feet firmly anchored to the ground.  Taureans are guided by their feelings but still practical; they’re practicality personified, and they’re aware of that. They’re also patient and persistent constructors who constantly strive towards the goals they set themselves.

 

 

They’re slow and their mind can’t take on several things at once; they order things one after the other. Taureans are sensual beings with overbearing desires. They’re said to be the most affectionate lovers of the Zodiac, and the best at turning their partners on. Love is like music to them. We see a lot of the wild, masculine and virile image of Taurus, but Taureans are really more meaningful cows than raging bulls! Don’t forget that Taurus is supported by two feminine polarities, that of sensual Venus, evoking pleasure and desire, and that of the Moon.

 

 

Taurus’ mythology is rich and comes from Dionysus, the son of Jupiter, an eternal adolescent with a bull’s head who was the god of vegetation, wine, fruits and seasonal renewal, a bringer of joy. Taurus is also a symbol of sacrifice. Mithraic mysteries, which were a great inspiration of Christianity, embody the sacrifice of the bull: Mithra cut the throat of the first living bull and it’s spilt blood led to the birth of plants and animals.

 

 

Mr. Taurus:

He’s generally a small and compact man: there are few tall ones but many with large necks, and their strength is situated in their upper body. You’ll rarely see Mr. Taurus running – he walks calmly with a twinkle in his eye! He likes laughing, joking, having fun and gets on easily with other people. Stubbornness is both his strength and weakness.

 

 

In Life:

When it comes to business, he is undeniably practical and rarely affected by other people’s problems, but whenever his own interests are at stake, he’s patient and persevering. He could become a trader, entrepreneur, management advisor, taxman, banker or trader on the Stock Exchange. Taurus is linked to the mouth, so you might also find him in all food-related trades, anything from agriculture to the hotel or restaurant industry; and he may develop his love for nature in agronomy, horticulture or gardening. Influenced by Venus and artistic talent, Mr. Taurus paints, sculpts, sings, dances and isn’t afraid of expressing his many talents.

 

 

In Love:

Get rid of all your preconceived ideas about Mr. Taurus, he has a surprising amount of imagination. In his youth, he’s a bit of a free spirit when it comes to life’s pleasures, but then one day he’ll decide to settle down, make a home for himself and have children – at least two, more likely three! In love, like in everything else, he’s in no hurry; he’ll make his decision and then set his heart on his chosen one. He rarely messes around and very quickly becomes possessive and jealous. While flattering at first, this can become stifling. If he says, “I love you”, it’s for life.

 

 

Miss Taurus
:

She’s very feminine, always wears make-up and perfume, and takes care of her hair and nails. You’ll rarely see a smudge or a hair out of place on her. Short or tall, brown or blonde, slim or curvy, she goes the whole hog when it comes to attraction and seduction, and few men can resist her when she turns on the charm. Still, she has a more difficult character than Mr. Taurus: she’s vindictive, but she knows how to welcome people. She’ll invite you round for dinner and you’ll end up partying the night away. She likes money and material things: a wardrobe that’s fit to burst, a healthy bank account and a stash of jewelry!

 

 

In Life:

Venus assigns all the artistic talents possible to Miss Taurus: she has a beautiful voice, dances like a pro and would give Laurence Llewellyn Bowen a run for his money in the design stakes! Her career may involve these talents, unless she’s got her own fashion boutique, hairdressers or beauty salon! She knows how to sell her beauty and she could be a model or actress who invests her earnings to make a nice egg-nest for her retirement. She has her head on her shoulders. She likes responsibility and, despite her fragile appearance, she’s one forceful lady.

 

 

In Love:

Miss Taurus has patience, fervor and sometimes resignation (her weak point is that she can’t live without a man in her life). She needs to feel male eyes on her to feel alive! Jealous and possessive, she doesn’t deal with unfaithfulness well at all, but will put up with it for the children, and to avoid going through change. She’s passionate about her home and is willing to do anything to keep it, so divorce is unlikely. She worships friendship.

Essential Oils:

 

Patchouli – Used in countless perfumes and fragrances, patchouli is noted for its long-lasting fragrance and fixative ability. It borders on the exotic and even the name patchouli evokes images of heady aromas, dark, rich colors, candlelight, incense and intrigue. The aroma is very intense; it can be described as earthy, rich, sweet, balsamic, woody and spicy. Patchouli oil is one of the few essential oils that improve with age. Aromatherapy benefits: romantic, soothing, sensual.

 

Rose Otto – Rose oil is one of the oldest and best known of all the essential oils. The fragrance of rose is associated with love. It is warm, intense, immensely rich and rosy. It is used in perfumes to lend beauty and depth. A drop or two in a massage, facial or bath oil is luxurious and soothing. The oil is used in skin creams, powders and lotions. Aromatherapy benefits: romantic, supportive, gently uplifting.

 

Thyme, White – White thyme starts out as red thyme oil that has been further refined and redistilled to remove the constituents that produce the red color. The aroma and action of white thyme oil are a bit milder than that of red thyme. Both are used to scent soaps, colognes and aftershaves. Caution: Thyme oil can be irritating to the skin and should be used cautiously. Aromatherapy benefits: cleansing, purifying, energizing.

 

Ylang-Ylang Extra – Ylang-ylang oil is distilled from the early morning, fresh-picked flowers of the cananga tree. The distillation process is interrupted at various points and the oil accumulates is removed. The first oil to be drawn off is the highest quality and is graded “extra.” Ylang-ylang extra has an intense floral, sweet, jasmine-like, almost narcotic aroma. Aromatherapy benefits: sensual, euphoric.
Tonka – Energetically Tonka Bean Absolute is called the Oil of Initiation. As a gatekeeper, it allows those that are ready to go forward and for those that are not ready, their experience will be unpleasant or they will get a blocked experience.

Herbs:

 

Cardamom: In India Cardamom is traditionally used in curry blends, and in Scandinavian countries it is commonly added to breads; however, most of the world’s Cardamom crop is used in Arabic countries as a flavoring for coffee. A small amount of Cardamom will add a tempting flavor to coffee cake, Danish pastry, specialty breads, and apple pie. Try Cardamom the Arabic way and add a little to your ground coffee before brewing, then sweeten and top with cream. Cardamom comes from India, Guatemala, and Ceylon.

 

Thyme: The leaves are stems of a shrub grown in France and Spain.   Has a strong, distinctive flavor.    A delicate looking herb with a penetrating fragrance, thyme is a wonderful addition to bean, egg and vegetable dishes. Both fresh and dried thyme is available in your local supermarket throughout the year. Fresh thyme should be stored in the refrigerator wrapped in a slightly damp paper towel. Dried thyme should be kept in a tightly sealed glass container in a cool, dark and dry place where it will keep fresh for about six months. Thyme, either in its fresh or dried form, should be added toward the end of the cooking process since heat can easily cause a loss of its delicate flavor. Add thyme to your favorite pasta sauce recipe. Fresh thyme adds a wonderful fragrance to omelets and scrambled eggs. Hearty beans such as kidney beans, pinto beans and black beans taste exceptionally good when seasoned with thyme. When poaching fish, place some sprigs of thyme on top of the fish and in the poaching liquid. Season soups and stocks by adding fresh thyme.

 

Recipe:

Apple Patchwork Cobbler

Apples, cinnamon, cardamom and orange liqueur topped with a patchwork arrangement crust.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

 

Ingregients:

6 large Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored and cubed)
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. cornstarch
½ cup sugar
1/8 tsp. cardamom
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ cup orange liqueur, or orange juice
Cooking spray
1 package refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
1 egg
1 tsp. water

 

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Combine the prepared apples in a large bowl with the lemon juice, cornstarch, sugar,
cardamom, cinnamon and orange liqueur. Toss well to thoroughly combine the ingredients and
coat the apples evenly.
3. Lightly spray an 8×11 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour the apples into the baking dish and
arrange them in an even layer.
4. Unroll one of the pie crusts. Cut the crust into rectangles approximately 1 ½ inches x 2 inches.
5. Arrange the crust rectangles over the apples in a patchwork fashion leaving several openings to
allow steam to escape. Be sure to press the pieces on the edges to the sides of the baking dish.
If more crust is needed, use the second pie crust as well.
6. Beat the egg with the water. Carefully brush the egg wash over the crust taking care not to
disturb the arrangement.
7. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. May be served just warm or at room temperature.
9. Use any leftover pie crust scraps to make cinnamon twists. Just gather up the scraps, knead
them together for a few seconds and roll them out. Melt a tablespoon or two of butter and brush
over the strips. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Cut the dough into strips about 4” long and 1
½” wide. Take each dough strip and give it a twist, then place it on a baking sheet lined with
parchment paper. Dab a little more melted butter on each twist and sprinkle on a little more sugar
and cinnamon. Bake for about 20 minutes along with the cobbler or until the twists are golden
brown. Great with a cup of coffee!

Aromatherapy of the Senses – Aries

April 15, 2013, 12:00 AM

0

By: Ann

 

Essential Oils:

 

Frankincense – Various species of frankincense trees grow wild throughout Western India, Northeastern Africa and Southern Saudi Arabia. The oil is distilled from the gum resin that oozes from incisions made in the bark of the trees. The oil is spicy, balsamic, green-lemon-like and peppery. It modifies the sweetness of citrus oils such as orange and bergamot. It is also the base for incense type perfumes and is important in Oriental, floral, spice and masculine scents. Aromatherapy benefits: calming, visualizing, meditative.

 

Neroli – Oil of neroli is distilled from the flowers of the bitter orange tree. It has a very strong, refreshing, spicy, floral aroma and is one of the most widely used flower oils in perfumery. It is an ingredient in eau de cologne and blends well with citrus oils and floral oils. Neroli is also used in premium natural cosmetic preparations such as massage oils, skin creams and bath oils. Aromatherapy benefits: calming, soothing, sensual.

 

Pine – Pine oil is distilled from the twigs and needles of the Scotch pine that grows throughout much of Europe and Asia. It has a fresh, resinous, pine needle aroma. The oil is used to scent a number of household and personal care products such as room sprays, detergents, vaporizer liquids, cough and cold preparations and masculine perfumes. When used in skin care preparations, pine oil should always be well diluted as it can be irritating to sensitive skin. Aromatherapy benefits: refreshing, invigorating.

 

Herbs:

 

Black Pepper: (spice) Dried, mature berries of a tropical vine. The whole dried berry (peppercorn) is used for black pepper.

Cloves: (spice) Dried, unopened flower buds of an evergreen tree. Intriguing, nail-like shape makes exotic garnish. Ground cloves very strong flavored and quite bitter tasting.

Coriander: (herb) Green leaves of a plant of the parsley family. Most frequently called “cilantro.” Strong, exotic flavor. Faint overtone of anise.

Cumin: (herb seed) Small, elongated, yellowish-brown seeds of a plant of the parsley family. Also “comino.” The aromatic flavor note in chili powder and essential in curries.

Ginger: (spice) Dried roots (rhizomes) of a member of the zingiber family. Root pieces are called “hands.” Smooth, straw-colored ones have been peeled, bleached.  Ginger is available in several different forms, the most common of which are fresh and powdered. Fresh ginger has a very sharp flavor.  Powdered ginger works well in baked goods, and is also useful in making spice rubs.

 

Recipe:

Baked Chicken Breasts with Apples

 

Here’s a new twist on chicken, not to mention a yummy way to get that apple a day into your diet.

Chef James Brockman chose chicken breasts for their low-fat content, but this dish is also delicious with legs and thighs. A touch of curry lends a slight Indian flair, but if you like food even spicier, feel free in Step 5 to add other spices. If you don’t like curry, you can leave it out and add a pinch of other spices (alone or in combination), such as cumin, oregano, coriander, black pepper or ginger.

Ingredients:

-    2 Tablespoons butter
-    Six 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-    Salt and pepper, to taste (to season chicken)
-    1 cup celery, sliced thin (1/4 inch)
-    1 cup red onion, sliced thin (1/4 inch)
-    1 cup carrot, sliced thin (1/4 inch)
-    3 apples, peeled and sliced into eight slices
-    1 Tablespoon curry
-    1 teaspoon cinnamon
-    2 teaspoons dried thyme
-    1/4 teaspoon salt (to season vegetables)
-    1/2 cup chicken broth
-    1/2 cup apple juice

Optional
-    One 8 oz. package sliced mushrooms
-    Pinch of cumin, oregano, coriander, black pepper and/or ginger

 

Directions:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Place the chicken breasts in the skillet and sear on both sides until lightly browned (approximately 2-3 minutes). Remove the chicken from the skillet and let the chicken rest on a plate while you prepare the vegetables and apples in the skillet.

Step 4: Add the celery, onions, carrot and apples to the skillet and cook over medium heat until the onions start to get tender, about 5 minutes.

Step 5: Add the curry, cinnamon, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

Step 6: Add the chicken broth and the apple juice and stir to combine.

Step 7: Place the chicken breasts on top of the apple mixture in the skillet or casserole, cover with lid and place in the preheated oven.

Aries With Pisces Moon

As we come into the next week on the tail end of the Mercury Retrograde, we will all start to get ‘back to normal’. Trying to understand people with their various signs has had me baffled to say the least. At the same time though, in learning about the various signs and how each person is ‘made up’, it has given me some interesting and better insight to people and how they act and react in their own personalities that make each one of us unique. Since this retrograde is ending around the same time as the crossing over of Pisces into Aries, I thought I would share a little bit on the workings of the uniqueness of the Aries person with the Pisces moon.

 

Aries with Pisces Moon

 

The Aries is guided by flashes of intuition and irresistible impulse and made with a fiery dynamo that is driven by a constant desire to forge ahead into new territories. When Aries sets their sights on a goal, it becomes an all-enveloping quest. The Aries native never gives up, but moves ever forward with an obstinate force of will. Like all fire signs, the constant feels vital energy pulses through them, and they must use that energy or burn up!

 

Aries strives for independence, and success is defined by a series of distinctive or high-reaching personal achievements. Coming in first or accomplishing the impossible are the ultimate goals. Athletes, entrepreneurs, soldiers, doctors, religious leaders, race car drivers and explorers are all associated with this sign. Aries does not fear danger, and accidents are all too common with this sign, particularly head injuries.

 

If the Aries seems brusque or disinterested it is because their mind is set on a goal that entirely absorbs the energy. Anything that interferes becomes an annoying distraction. Once the Aries sets his/her sights on someone or something, then it becomes an urgent and immediate priority. If you are that goal, you can be sure that you will be showered with a love that burns as bright as the sun, and you can expect to be blessed with the greatest fire of devotion.

 

 

MOON in PISCES (also Moon in twelfth House)

 

Moon in Pisces is a very sensitive soul. Their reaction in emotional situations is either to hide, or to sympathize and give in. They’re not likely to fight as they have a tendency to merge energy with others, taking on their feelings. Aries is a truly empathetic individual. Moon in Pisces nurtures others with a sweet kindness, understanding and a willingness to make personal sacrifices. They need kindness in return. They may also be deeply spiritual, and is undoubtedly an artistic person who draws inspiration from early experiences and memories.
