Chicken and Farro Soup

Soup season is officially upon us, people! The weather lately has been decidedly dreary, with plenty of rain and wind and chilly temps. I knew when I got home today that it would be soup for dinner. A few days ago I posted an article on my Facebook page extolling the benefits of eating and […]

Roasted Broccoli

Alright, so I’ll be upfront with you here: Roasted broccoli is nothing new, but if you haven’t been eating yours this way, you are seriously missing out. This is an easy way to totally elevate an everyday, ho-hum side dish. You’ll seriously consider ever going back to steamed. I’d been waiting all summer for broccoli. […]

Beef Stew

The leaves are changing, there’s a nip in the air (at least in the mornings), and the days are getting shorter. That can only mean one thing: Soup’s on! Well, in this case…stew’s on. I broke out the Dutch oven for this one and let it simmer away slowly on a Sunday afternoon while I […]

Veggie Lasagne

First off, sorry for the radio silence. Sometimes the weather is just too nice to spend evenings writing blog posts…sometimes I’m awfully busy with I don’t even know what, and all I can think to make is endless nights of tacos…sometimes I try to cook some things that sound good in my head but don’t […]

Watermelon-Jalapeno Daiquiri

It’s Friday. You’ve had a long week. You deserve a cocktail. This one is perfect for a late summer evening. The watermelon is cool and crisp, yet the jalapeno warms your throat — and the booze warms you from the inside. Of course, if you’ve got tequila you can turn this into a margarita. Experimentation […]

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 […]

Panzanella

I heard of panzanella several years ago watching Giada on one of my regular Food-Network binges back when I had access to cable. The theory was completely appealing to me — bread, check. Tomatoes, check — but I never got around to trying one. In Italy earlier this summer I had the opportunity to try […]

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 […]

Cucumber-Tomato Salad

It’s that time of year, when gardens and CSA bags are overflowing with cucumbers. As soon as I picked up my newest pile on Saturday morning, I knew what I wanted to make. So I grabbed some ground lamb out of the freezer to thaw, threw together some tzatziki sauce, and whipped up this salad […]

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Ah, early summer. My CSA started back up for summer two short weeks ago and yet, I am already drowning in produce. But, you know, in a good way. Since it’s just the two of us, we tend to have more than we can feasibly use. A lot goes into the freezer (which makes ice […]
