Well, this morning I found myself with a few precious extra minutes before I had to leave for work, so I decided to forgo my usual blueberry yogurt in favor of a protein packed farm fresh scramble. I'm too lazy to make an actual omelet during the week, I admit!
I started with some chopped swiss chard, leftover grilled onions from my CSA Gourmet burger the other night, (which if I didn't have, I would have chopped up some fresh onion), grated Vermont cheddar cheese (thanks Cindy for…
I made this soup start to finish, we ate it and I cleaned up - all within the span of 90 minutes. I used 8, e i g h t, produce items from my CSA in this soup!
They are: onion, garlic, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, green onions, bok choy, cabbage, tomatoes and parsley (of course it would have been much better with cilantro, but I didn't have any - so I used parsley). Make that 9 ingredients fresh from the farm if you count the parsley.
If you don't have all the greens…

It’s ROUND ONE: Battle of the Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce. In tonight’s corner we have “Uncooked.” But, uncooked doesn’t mean lacking. No, ma’am. I think you’ll find that this pasta sauce will put up quite a fight. In fact, if we were in some kind of “Farmer’s Market Boxing Ring,” I think the announcer would say something…

Around the house and at the office, we're always looking for nutritious, low carbohydrate snack-y foods to eat. It's hard to replicate the satisfying crunch of a chip or flour-filled cracker, but these seed crackers are good contenders and healthy to boot. Reading through the recipe below might sound labor intensive, but it really doesn't take up a lot of time. It's just a few small things here and there to get the prep work going and isn't any harder than whipping up a batch of cookies.…Continue
What to do with Creme Fraiche? Make frozen treats!
Our family often drinks smoothies for breakfasts on the go. I take the leftovers and pour them into popsicle molds as a nutrition-packed treat in the afternoons that I can feel good about. The sugar content is offset by the fat, fiber and protein so it ideally enters the system more slowly. Here's my recipe:
In a blender, put in the following and blend til smooth:
2 cups of…Continue

Finally sat down and learned how to use my new All-American pressure canner! We had to kill the backyard roosters, so I took out the frozen chickens killed in May and made about four quarts of stewed chicken and broth.
Luckily kale also needs to be cooked at 10 lbs. of pressure for 90 minutes, so I filled up…Continue
After leaving the gorgeous green of Missouri 10 years ago for the grey sea of concrete that is Long Beach and Los Angeles, I finally have a spot in a community garden. I combined plots with a friend who spent a couple of her formative years in the Midwest and missed the green enough to sit on a community garden waiting list with me for more than 3 years. But our wait is finally over!
We started late and I didn't do enough research to figure out what I needed, but we…Continue
We are in the height of blueberry season here in Georgia. I have been getting some off my bushes this year. (whatever the birds leave me!) I am also finding North Carolina blueberries at 2 pints for $3.00 so I have been stocking up. Here is a good recipe from the July edition of Southern Living for blueberry salsa. I was a little unsure when I made it but it tasted heavenly and everyone at the pool party…Continue
