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 […]

Cheesy Corn and Veggie Dip

I love a good party dip. I’ve been know to saddle up next to the snack table at a family get together and eat so much chips and dip that I basically have no room left for dinner. This dip is no exception. Despite the fact that this is packed with things like tons of cheese, […]

Herby Kale Pesto

Pesto is a summer staple around these parts. As soon as the basil blows up, I’m out there cutting it and whipping up a batch of pesto for pasta, chicken, toast, to spread on sandwiches…you name it, I’ll try to put pesto on it. Since we became farmshare subscribers, I’ve never have had so much […]

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 […]

Garlic Scape Pesto

Another ingredient I’ve never cooked with before…garlic scapes.  Garlic scapes are basically the flower stalk of garlic plants, growing out of the top in a curly sort of fashion.  My CSA newsletter suggested making pesto with them, so obviously that’s the direction I went.  I could eat pesto with a spoon…greens blended with nuts, cheese […]

Kale Pesto

This was my first week of my CSA Farmshare.  I already know this is the best food decision I’ve ever made.  A box full of yummy, fresh food is just what this indecisive meal planner needs.  All I have to do is supplement with a few things to make a full meal…makes my life so […]

Mum’s Egg Salad

I love all kinds of salads…the traditional ones with lettuce to the mayonnaise laden protein salads.  I’ve been known to stand over the kitchen sink dunking crackers in containers of my mum’s egg salad.  I also sometimes just eat it with a spoon.  If you dig egg salad, this is the best! you will need: […]

Kale & Carrot Salad with Candied Walnuts

I feel like kale is such an “in” food right now.  I have no problem eating it, I just haven’t been too excited to buy it and use it.  In an effort to beef up the healthy meals in this house (think, loose that baby weight!) I thought I’d give it a try.  I have […]

Summer Tomato Pesto

Pesto is absolutely one of my most favorite summer foods.  I love it on pasta, veggies, sandwiches, the occasional spoonful alone…you get the picture.  I have a stand by recipe from my mom that I always make, but when I saw this one, I thought it warranted expanding my pesto repertoire.  It was a fantastic […]

Bacon, Peach & Arugula Sandwiches

OMG, this is the best summer sandwich I’ve ever had!  So flippin’ good.  I have never been a huge fan of sandwiches, but I married into a family of sammy fanatics.  So they’ve grown on me over the years, especially my hubby’s ruben (that’s his specialty).  I am now obsessed with Schmidt’s (review to come […]
