As I mentioned in my last post, fall sports season is here. With 5:00 games and practices, dinner becomes quite a challenge. To avoid a week filled with drive-thru dinners, I pull out my trusty slow cooker and let it do the work for me. There’s nothing better than walking in the door after a […]
Jeff and I were sitting around at lunch time on Saturday and suddenly had a hankering for curry. I found out how easy it was to make the week before when I made shrimp curry for the first time. Basically all you need is curry paste, coconut milk, and a little chicken broth. Easy peasy. […]

Remember when we steamed our first batch of artichokes last week and restrained ourselves from eating the hearts? As hard as it was, we saved them for a good cause, a big pot of beef and artichoke stew. I used organic, grass-fed stew meat, tons of veggies and a splash of good local beer. The […]
Lately, I have been on the hunt for lentil recipes. After picking some up at Sunflower Market last week, I realized just how easy, filling and economical they can be.
