Last week I was really craving some good french fries. In the past when I’ve tried to make them at home, my oven fries have either come out sad and floppy or burnt to a crisp. I was determined this time to make a batch of fries that didn’t suck. The keys to success turned […]
Just in time for shower season, a pretty pink dip perfect for celebrating a bride, a new graduate, or a tiny pink bundle of joy. The delicate earthy flavor of this beet hummus pairs perfectly with crisp vegetables and hearty crackers. Plus, it’s a cinch to make. Use white or yellow beets with just one […]
I can’t take credit for these tasty nuggets. My mom made a batch and sent a container home with me a few weeks ago. They were for the kids. I ate them all. Oops. I thought I should make it up to them, so I made a batch. Then another. Then another. We have […]
I remember the first time I set out to make my own pesto. I had seen TV chefs make it for years, and it seemed pretty simple. Plus, pesto is yum, and I wanted to eat more of it. I headed to the store and grabbed a bunch of basil and a hunk of parmesan. […]
You know that thing when you’re invited to a party and you forget to put it on the calendar and all of a sudden you need a quick appetizer idea? No? Oh I forgot, you all are much more organized than me. Well, if that ever should happen to you, here’s an easy idea that […]
I can’t take credit for this idea. My friend and fellow celiac Shannon told me about this unlikely pairing last summer, and I have been devouring it ever since. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? I promise, it’s so good. Just be sure to portion some out on a plate, or you’ll end up eating the entire bowl. […]
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the urge to purge. Organize. Clean. I couldn’t figure out why, especially since I’m not an organized person at heart. Then it hit me: I’m nesting. No, not that kind of nesting. Spring Training starts this week. Which means a huge shift in our schedule, and the start […]
Have you ever tasted a turnip? Hey now, don’t turn up your nose at me (get it?). I promise, they’re really quite good. I had only tried them once or twice before as part of a root vegetable gratin, so when I found the bunch of turnips in my Agritopia CSA basket, I wondered what […]
One of the first things we planted in our community garden was a variety of radishes. Not something I buy from the store very often, but surprisingly exciting to pull out of the ground and nibble on. Our first few radishes were small, pulled up by tiny hands, beautifully pink and purple. Joe and Leila […]
If you’ve ever met me, you might know I tend to geek out a little bit when it comes to local food. In fact, you might even call me a farm groupie. There’s just something about knowing where your food comes from and having conversations with the people who grow it. Imagine my delight when […]
