We went to the market this morning to pick up our CSA stash (the first of the Spring) and could not resist these little beauties. Also came home with sweet potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, collards, kale, spinach, lettuce, radishes, beets, daikon, cabbage and spring onions.

Today’s CSA stash is glorious – kale, spinach, mixed salad greens, collards, carrots, turnips, parsnips, sweet potatoes, radishes, beets, broccoli, celery root, brussel sprouts, and green onions.

I have a few recipes at the ready just in case we grow tired of eating them as is: Figs with mustard seeds and curry leaves* Rustic Fig & Goat […]
I have been on a quest for a homemade veggie patty for… like… ever. I’ve tried a kazillion recipes in the past few years and they are all perfectly yummy but rarely hit highs across the board. Sometimes, they fall apart. Sometimes, they are ingredient heavy. Sometimes the 9yo 10yo won’t come within inches of them. Sometimes they are ONLY yummy if you can serve them with a perfect combination of go-withs. This recipe (originally posted […]
We are hitting that time of year where the beets keep rolling in and our cravings are edging towards cucumbers and tomatoes and peppers. Trying new (for me) things in an effort to keep the beet magic alive for a bit longer. Discovered a new favorite application in the process – pasta! Pasta with Beets and Ricotta* has been officially added to our list of tricks for beet season. We keep roasted beets around during beet season for quick […]
