In the middle of a cooking groove, so I am riding it all the way to an actual meal plan. This is way more food than we can probably get through in a week, but I figure I’ll just keep working through it until we run out of produce. Putting lots of tomatoes and peaches this week, too. Excited to try Kate’s peach sauce in addition to putting away a small batch of peach jam. […]
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 […]
This will be my fifth season of putting up tomatoes for my homemade pantry! I’m excited to get my sad, sad pantry back into top form, so stay tuned this coming weekend as I blanch, peel, and prep my first 20 lbs worth.

Not something I cook with often so I would love some suggestions. Shoot me your favorites, pretty please.

Perfectly-cooked quinoa can turn to mush if left in the pot to steam. Transfer your quinoa to a colander once it’s ready to keep it nice and fluffy until you are ready for it.
Switching to shelf-stable pickles ’til we eat our way through all the fermented stashes in the fridge.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I got hit with large amounts of peppers (hot ones) over the weekend. Serranos, jalapeños, poblanos, and habaneros all had to be dealt with immediately. Quick breakdown of what I put up below: Fermented Jalapeños – Ya’ll… I am fermenting everything thanks to The Hip Girl’s Guide to the Kitchen. Picture above is what I started with. Charred Habanero Sauce – Used this recipe as a base with […]
Not sure how we landed on Friday AM so suddenly, but here it is nonetheless. Have CSA to stash away this weekend and what may be my last bulk order of tomatoes. What are you up to?
I promised to check back in with some progress and here she goes. My first jar of fermented dill pickles smells divine, and is absolutely beautiful. All signs point to this being a fermenting household moving forward. Will have to figure out fridge space for this new pickle direction ASAP.
