You guys. It’s here.
After countless requests I’m bringing you, dear readers, the My New Roots smartphone app! And now over 100 of your favourite (and my favourite!) recipes are in one easy place with features that help you browse, organize, and cook the dishes you love the most. I’ve made it possible to create shopping lists for ingredients, keep a collection of favourites, and filter recipes to suit your preferences: vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, raw – or skip right to the desserts!
It’s been a really fun process going through the last nine years of recipes and stories from the blog. Along with the amazing memories, I’ve rediscovered so many incredible recipes that have fallen off my of my radar! I’ve been sitting on a gold mine! I guess one of the ironies of constantly developing new material is that I often forget to make my old favourites. I am excited to dig up these tried, tested, and true gems, and put them in the app for you to enjoy as well.
The feature that I am really excited about however, is the menus! Since I typically publish just one recipe at a time here on the blog, creating an entire menu with multiple dishes would be a tad overwhelming for a single post. The app has inspired me to change that and create multiple- course menus for all occasions.
The first menu I’ve made is for the holiday season, and includes five brand-new, and crazy-delicious dishes to impress your best guests. On the menu: Wild Rice and Shiitake Soup, Grilled Radicchio with Golden Beet and Pomegranate Salsa, Shoe String Sweet Potato Fries with Miso Tahini Gravy, Vegan Shepherd’s Pie, and Spiced Date Pomegranate Cupcakes. These recipes are designed to be cooked together to create a complete holiday dinner, but can easily be enjoyed separately all year ‘round. They will not be found on the blog, but included in the app exclusively, and you can get them today!
There are over 100 recipes in the app, and that number will grow with each update, both with recipes from the blog and menus I make exclusively for the app. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do, and if you have any suggestions of how I can improve it, features to add, or even ideas for recipes, just write to apps(at)mynewroots.org. Your feedback is so important to me and I want to make this app the best it can be for you.
Happy cooking, friends. I really hope that my app will inspire you to get into the kitchen and create even more delicious, nourishing food for yourself and the people you love. Thank you for your ongoing support and encouraging to take the leap to make this dream a reality!
