Many young people grow up without the ability to cook, or uneducated about clean eating; which is why having access to healthy food recipes is so important. Whether home cooks are in the beginning levels or advanced, being able to cook recipes at home and avoid the pitfalls of fast food is key to a healthy diet.

There are some great food blogs devoted to healthy, home cooked recipes (you are on one now!). Another blog, Clean Foodies has some delicious recipes made with whole ingredients–even desserts–for your whole family to enjoy.

clean foodies

Breakfast recipes like barley pancakes and baked oatmeal start your day off right. Sides like hummus, quinoa tabbouleh and buckwheat pita bread bring Mediterranean flavor to the table. Even dessert can be healthy (in moderation) with quinoa and cacao crisps, chocolate mousse (made with coconut milk and honey) and gluten free dessert recipes like chocolate peanut butter bars.

Learning to cook from home is key to a healthy diet, and once you start eating home-cooked, delicious meals, processed foods quickly lose their appeal. Make family project to try out new recipes and you will soon be on your way to learning eating habits that will benefit you for a lifetime!

iPad tills are gradually taking over the EPOS world. They’re pushing out the old, bulky tills as more and more business begin to understand the benefits that they can bring to them. iPad tills can be used across many industries due to their versatile nature and ability to have downloaded, tailored apps which are suitable for different types of companies.

In this article, we are going to focus on what the benefits are of restaurants using iPad till systems as opposed to any other type of till system:

Customer Service
iPad till systems use the latest technologies to replicate the POS system onto an iPad which then delivers information between the kitchen and all other mobile devices. You can display upsell items to staff at the point of order which allows them to spend more time on the floor.

Loyalty
iPad till systems allow companies to implement strategies through the cloud based nature of the system. This allows for online ordering, paying by mobile and other possibilities.

Data
There is a huge amount of room for customer data – much more than with traditional POS systems.

Seating
Rather than using manual seating charts, a lot of iPad till systems offer different software which can do this for you.

Ordering
The latest craze is being able to input tableside orders with an iPad. Rather than manually writing it down, servers can input orders into the tablet which goes straight to the kitchen. This improves efficiency, minimises downtime and reduces errors that commonly occur in the transaction from paper to computer.

Payment
Customers dining at a restaurant don’t want to have to hang around at the end of their meal to pay. iPad till systems can be used for immediate tableside transactions. This prevents the very common and annoying server pile up around the computer towards the end of the evening.

Real Time Reporting
iPad till systems mean that you can monitor your stock and KPIs from anywhere by using the iPad. This is very useful for owners when they are away.

Real Time Changes
Similarly to real time reporting, iPad tills allow you to manage your menus and make other changes to the restaurant wherever you are.

Portable
iPad tills are small and portable meaning that you can serve customers by tableside which reduces the chance of errors and also increasing customer satisfaction.

Easy to Use
You can save time on training with an iPad EPOS system as it highly intuitive and has a simple interface. It is very easy to use, unlike tradition EPOS tills.

Reservations
Not only can you manage seating arrangements, you can also manage bookings, table availability and even track your customers from reservation to payment.

Unlimited Users
You can create unlimited staff accounts and add very specific user privileges.

Cloud Sync
iPad EPOS systems allow for cloud syncing. This is great for a number of reasons, primarily that it can store huge amounts of data that can be accessed whether you are online or offline.

We hope that this has been useful for you restaurant owners out there investigating into the new EPOS systems and that we have been able to articulate the uses of and benefits of iPad tills for restaurants clearly enough.

These smoked salmon deviled eggs are another addition to my creative collection of deviled egg recipes. Pickled Beet Deviled Eggs, Red Wine & Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs and Sushi Deviled Eggs are all big hits so far. I used the egg-dying trick again with these, and while the color of the eggs looks visually beautiful, these eggs aren’t pickled, so the flavor of the egg doesn’t really change.

Dying the eggs is a fairly simple process, and requires boiling the eggs a day ahead. All you need to do is boil the eggs, peel them and then let them soak overnight in a mixture of boiled onion skins and a little turmeric powder. The mixture turns them a brilliant orangey-brown, which looks lovely paired with smoked salmon.

deviled-eggs-salmon

I used (hot) smoked salmon in these deviled eggs instead of cured salmon, like lox or gravlax. Smoked salmon is cooked with low heat and is more similar in texture to grilled or poached salmon. It flakes when you cut into it, making it easy to slice off big chunks for the deviled eggs.

I love cold cured salmon just as much for the silky texture, but am reserving this type of salmon for a different recipe, which will pop up on Love and Duck Fat in the near future.

The firm texture and smoky flavor of the salmon is the perfect topping for the lemony egg filling. Chopped capers add a nice pop of tartness and very finely-chopped celery gives the eggs a burst of freshness and crunch. Chopped green onion is really the only garnish needed for this elegant appetizer that looks like you slaved away when it’s actually very simple.

I’ve learned a few tricks making all of these eggs. Check them out below to see if you use these techniques:

  • Drop cold eggs into simmering water to make them easy to peel
  • Alternatively, add a teaspoon of baking soda to your water to make them easy to peel
  • Older eggs peel better than younger eggs, but they are more likely to have an air pocket on the top, make them not completely oval in shape
  • You don’t need a piping bag, just spoon your filling mixture into a plastic sandwich bag and slice a little hole in the corner to make an instant piping bag
  • Use all of those egg shells in the garden to deter snails and slugs from eating your precious plants!

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs Recipe

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • Skins from 3-4 medium onions
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 12 hard boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon or yellow mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon capers, finely chopped
  • 1/2 stalk celery, very finely chopped
  • 1 4-6 oz piece smoked salmon
  • sliced green onion for garnish

Method

In a medium saucepan, onion skins and turmeric to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, until the water turns a deep golden color. Allow to cool completely. Strain liquid and set aside.

Boil & Peel Eggs: Place eggs in the bottom of a large saucepan and cover with water so they are completely submerged. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to water. Heat until water comes to a gentle boil. Simmer eggs for 8 minutes. Drain and rinse eggs under cold water.

Crack egg shells on the counter top, and roll them gently on the counter with your hand. Carefully peel under running water and set aside.

Add eggs to onion/turmeric water and refrigerate at least 2 hours to overnight. Remove and pat dry on paper towels. Cut in half with a sharp knife and pop the yolks into a bowl.

Mash yolks first. Then mash again with mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt, cayenne pepper, capers and celery. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and top with a schunk of salmon. Sprinkle with sliced green onion.
