Organic Living for the Holidays

Many organic foodies have discovered the virtues of organic wine, but have you tried organic beer? If you haven’t picked a favorite, be sure to read Pour Me an Organic Brewski.

On the menu this season is one of my husband’s favorite dishes, Tasty Osso Buco Served with Wild Mushroom Risotto . I make it with grass-fed bison, which has a very clean flavor that doesn’t taste gamey.

Accompanied by our Easy Garlicky Beet Greens, it will be the hit of any impressive, yet easy, dinner party.

Our Baked Organic Apples Stuffed with Winter Fruit Compote is another great do-ahead dish. Place them in the oven about 30 minutes before serving your main course, and they’ll be just the right temperature for a dazzling dessert.
