Curried Cauliflower & Kale Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is one of my favorite things. I want to say grains, but it isn’t actually a grain; its a seed. I have found that most people either love or hate it, and I am firmly in the love camp. I’m always on the hunt for a new variation of this yummy super-food for my lunch […]

Sun Dried Tomato & Kale Quinoa

Quinoa is a stand by in this house. Whether for a dinner side or making a big batch for a week of lunches, I’m always whipping up a new version of this protein packed and filling grain. I usually just start throwing in whatever I have in my fridge or pantry or try to use what […]

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 […]

It had so much good flavor and the texture was great. And you are eating a big bowl of cauliflower…so its super healthy, […]

Spicy Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Aaaaand, I’m back to reality… Our 10 day trip to the Carolinas was just lovely.  We spent time in Raleigh with friends, had a week in Kiawah and then ended our trip at Lake Murray just out side of Columbia, SC with family.  I adored all of the time spent with loved ones and experiencing […]

Zucchini Fritters with Dill Yogurt Sauce

We’ve gotten quite a bit of zucchini and squash in our CSA this year, which is fantastic.  We all love it…Connor has been known to down his fair share of it after it was cooked with butter and onions.  So far, I’ve used it in a galette, put it in pasta, zucchini bread and just […]

Radish, Carrot & Edamame Stir-Fry

I don’t often buy radishes.  I’m not sure why, but it just isn’t a regular item I pop into my grocery cart.  So when my mom left a bunch at my house, I wondered what to do with them.  I like them in salads, but I wanted to try something new.  I had been dying […]
