Baked Brie with Honey, Pine nuts, and Lavender Sea Salt

Baked Brie is never not good. Versital and decadent- It takes on so many different flavor combinations and provides the creaminess needed to create a fast and simple appetizer.

A formula for a balanced Baked Brie we use is part sweet, part crunchy, and part salty.

Baked Brie with Honey, Pine nuts, and Lavender SeaSalt ( takes less than 20 minutes)

we will need:

1 small wheel of Brie cheese

4 tbs honey

2 tbs pine nuts

1/2 teaspoon lavender sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cheese in baking dish. Top with honey and pine nuts. Bake for 5-7 minutes. Finish with lavender sea salt. Serve with Apples, and Bread.

A couple other variations we like are :

Maple Syrup + Pecan + Smoked Seasalt

Raspberry Preserves + Almond + Rosemary Sea Salt

Pine Nuts : Crunchy yet butter textured, and sweet pine nuts are small edible seeds of the female cone in a pine tree.

Lavender Sea Salted Marinated Beets

Luscious and vibrant, Marinated Beets are delicious on their own, or try adding feta, goat or your favorite cheese and some dark greens or quinoa for a salad . The tangy apple cider vinegar balances the sweet, earthy flavor of the beets. They will keep in fridge up to 1 week, but I promise they won’t last that long.

We finished these beauties with our newest addition to our sea salt family, Lavender. From the mint family, lavender sea salt is a light, fragrant add to most any dish. We find it’s notes pairs exceptionally well with lamb, chicken, potatoes, tomatoes, beets, caramel, shortbread, oatmeal cookies and all things lemon… to name a few.

  • For the marinade:

    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

    1tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Juice of 1/4 lemon

    1/2 tbs dry mustard

    1 tsp minced garlic

    1/8 red onion sliced thin

    1 green onion sliced thin

    Pure Sea Salt + Pepper to taste

    ( lavender sea salt to finish)

    Combine all ingredients in 1 Quart Mason Jar and chill in fridge.

    Take 4-5 fresh beets. Trim and scrub them. Place them in a pot of boiling water with a 1/4 cup of lemon juice or vinegar. This will keep the beets color from releasing. Let cook for 45-55 minutes. Remove pot from heat and pour out beet water. Run cold water on beets. Let cool. Peel off skin from beets. Slice or quarter your beets. I like quarters. 🌱Add to marinade in fridge. Place lid on Mason Jar and Shake until combined.

    Return to fridge for at least 1 hour. This will make around4-6 servings.


    Try adding a favorite herb or Citrus juice to the marinade. Finish with Lavender Sea Salt

    Beets are good sources of vitamins and minerals, such as folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.

    Baked Parm Crisps with Rosemary Sea Salt

    Flour tortillas, olive oil, parm cheese and rosemary sea salt are all we need to make this earthy, salty, crispy treat. Make extra- they go fast!

    • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Stack the tortillas on top of each other, then cut into six equal sized wedges.
    • Place the cut tortillas in a large bowl and drizzle the olive oil over top. Gently toss the tortilla pieces in the oil until they’re all lightly coated. Top with grated parm cheese and rosemary sea salt.
    • spread the tortilla pieces out over the surface so that they’re in a single layer and overlapping as little as possible.
    • Bake the chips for ten minutes, then gently stir and flip the chips. Add a bit more parm cheese. Return the chips to the oven and bake until golden brown (3-5 minutes more). Season with sea salt again
    • Allow the chips to cool before serving. Yummy with hummus, bruschetta or just as is.

    Holiday Bizarre 🎄

    For our last show of the 2018 season, I headed to the Historic Village of Corolla for a Holiday Bazaar and stayed overnight at The Tiny Surf Shack in Kill Devil Hills.

    Owners Lindsay and Andrew of ALTwood , in Historic Corolla hosted a fantastic Holiday Bazaar including a CO OP just down the way, Corolla Village Market. Local artists set up their work outside – ready for folks to mingle + shop.

    Local Artisans gathered to share the Christmas Spirit and their goods with the community. It was so nice to see some familiar faces I have met from past shows, and great to meet lovely new artisans. Camp Cocktail was creating delicious drinks .

    Fresh cut mistletoe + pine adorned the large Artisan Tent. Christmas was in the air.

    As Friday evenings Bizarre drew to a close, I was looking forward to my next adventure of the day. .. finding my Air BnB for the evening. Packed everything up and headed to Kill Devil Hills.

    The Tiny Surf Shack is tiny living with a bike ride to the beach. The backyard is set up for you to grill, wax your board, sit and sip coffee, or read a book in a hammock underneath the oak. Inside, each detail is thoughtfully planned to suit your needs. The next 30 visitors of this lovely nook will be receiving a 2 ounce sea salt.

    So, as I pulled up to the Surf Shack, it began to rain… but the beautiful lights in the Oak brightened everything up. It was an utterly enchanting experience.

    Woke up with a great night sleep, and grateful to find a supply of KDH Coffee there for me to enjoy.

    As usual, the weather dictated my plan and I had to cut the show a day short and head back to the island.

    The Outer banks are a beautiful place to explore and I am grateful my job lets me do just that and meet amazing folks along the way

    Thanks Everyone – S

    Today I am sharing our Easter Bark Recipe. Pineapple and Coconut bring the tropical vibe and the Smoked Pecan Sea Salt adds a Smokey, buttery Southern Flavor.
