Cheesy Corn and Veggie Dip

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 […]

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: […]

Holiday traditions are the best.  There are so many of ours that I love and I’m so excited to start more now that we have a little one.  We spend Christmas Eve with a small gathering of our immediate families and it’s just so lovely.  We have a multi-course dinner, always featuring my mother-in-law’s famous […]

Pancetta, Tomato & Mascarpone Fettuccine

This is one of those recipes I have on a tiny, stained piece of paper.  It’s shoved in my giant binder of recipes that I’ve pulled from magazines or printed from websites.  It’s practically committed to memory.   I’m not sure where the original idea for this recipe came from, but it’s current iteration is […]

Matt’s mom makes bangin’ crab cakes.  I mean, for real.  We eat them every year on Christmas Eve…with some sort of steak, delicious sides and lots of champagne.  It’s become our holiday tradition and it’s awesome.  We all look forward to this meal so much that we stuff ourselves beyond reason.  I find myself craving […]
