Butternut Squash Soup with Candied Pumpkin Seeds

We’ve had squash a plenty in our farmshare for the past several weeks. Now that it finally feels like fall, I’m excited to make some soups. Naturally the first place to go was to use some of the squash adorning my counter tops. I found Deb’s recipe for this yummy yet easy soup and couldn’t […]

Concord Grape Jam

I rarely wander into the realm of making homemade jams. Usually I feel like I can buy really yummy stuff (hello, Sarabeth’s) so why would I take all the time to make my own. Then I started getting a farmshare…and when they send concord grapes, you make jam. So for the past two years, I’ve […]

Late Summer Gazpacho

I love me some ripe heirloom tomatoes. Just. so. good. I’m good with just slicing and eating them, but have been wanting to use them in other recipes, particularly in their raw form. Seems like a waste to cook a ripe heirloom! I’ve never been a huge fan of gazpacho, but when I saw this […]

{Lightened Up} Eggplant Parm Stacks

Eggplant Parmesan is a delicious dinner, however I always spend the rest of the evening feeling super stuffed. Its a heavy dinner that is more suited for cold weather, but when I got it in the farmshare last week I had a strong desire to bread it :). This recipe is a lighter take on the […]

Fried Green Tomato BLTs

Every time I travel to the south, I can’t get enough fried green tomatoes. They are just so delicious.

One of the best food decisions I’ve ever made. […]

Summer Corn & Zucchini Chowder

Summer corn is one of my favorite vegetables. I could just eat a whole dinner of 3 ears of corn, and maybe a plate of heirloom tomatoes. That is summer happiness right there. When I saw this recipe, I knew I needed to make it ASAP. Then, as fate would have it, I got 5 […]

Cabbage & Collard Slaw with Tahini Dressing

Last year I got collards in my farmshare and wasn’t sure what to do with them. I didn’t want to do the traditional southern style preparation, so I tried this cole slaw instead. I liked it a lot and it was a nice departure from the usual cabbage slaws I make in the summer. This […]
