Summer Vegetable Pie

I recently went to my favorite you-pick farm and came home with 40+ pounds of tomatoes, 6 pounds of blackberries, and 2 pounds of these beauts: Oh man, are these eggplants amazing. I’ve grown up eating and loving the big, purple globe eggplants. But then I tried these. Oh, man. I’ve been missing out! These […]

Tomato Pie

I am so. Freakin‘. Excited. for tomatoes. While I’ve been busy crying over my one lone tomato on my plant at home (with two new potentials as of last night, yippee!), my CSA has delivered. I got to take up to 3 pounds with last week’s pick-up, and you better believe I took every last […]

Adventures in Bread Baking, part 1

You may recall a few months ago I said I was going to bake some whole-grain bread soon. Well, I finally did it! And I’ll say, it wasn’t bad for my first attempt. I mean, I’ve made whole-wheat pizza dough before, and baked a few loaves in my lifetime (it’s been quite a while though). […]

Apple-Cranberry Deep Dish Pie

What better way to usher in Fall than with an apple-cranberry pie? It’s a little sweet, a little tart, a lot of crust, and a TON of fruit. It’s a nice take on a classic…and also, Scott’s mom makes the best apple pies ever so I don’t want to overstep my bounds here. But I […]

Sweet Potato and Beet Galette

You guys. I just made the prettiest dinner ever. And it was delicious. AND easy! How often do those stars align?! This is fancy enough for a party, maybe a Thanksgiving appetizer. Your friends will think you slaved away in the kitchen all day, and you’ll smile slyly because you know it is simple enough […]

Apple-Olive Oil Cake

I got a bit of a craving to bake something today, and with about 20 pounds of apples to go through still, I needed a recipe that called for more than 1 apple. Unfortunately, so many recipes uses fruit as an afterthought or a flavoring, rather than the star ingredient. Honestly, all too often sugar […]

Blueberry Cornbread

You know it’s a good weekend when on Saturday, you pick several pounds of blueberries and sweet cherries and on Sunday, you PR in a 5K. Well, I had a great weekend, because I did both of those things and also made a pretty amazing dinner tonight. Ususally on Sundays, we go over to Scott’s […]

Book Review: Make the Bread, Buy the Butter

Make the Bread, Buy the Butter by Jennifer Reese (of Tipsy Baker), 2011 This is the book I have been waiting for my. Whole. Life. I know my previous two book reviews were about all the terrible food out there any why you should never ever ever eat any of those processed nightmares the Big […]
