Unagi and Avocado Rolls with Carrot Sushi Rice

The more I play with the carrots from my Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm share, the more fun I have.  We like sushi, and I can eat my age in pieces of sushi. That gets pricey, so it makes sense to make it at home.

Here's a colorful sushi roll--and I'm blown away that the photo does justice…

Dainty Radish Pizza with colorful CSA radishes

When I set the radishes on this pizza I thought it looked like Easter, so I'm sharing it today.

I was trying to duplicate the awesomeness that is a radish sandwich, and added some cheeses to a tender/crunchy pizza crust and wow--my non-radish-eating son ate all the leftovers.  

You can…

Black Eyed Pea and Kale Salad in Salumi Cups

I don't know where the black eyed peas = good luck in the new year tradition started, but I do know that I get a hankering for black eyed peas around this time of year.

I created this appetizer to be a fun way to get my New Year good luck while using goodies from our farm share.…

One Step At A Time - Learning To Take It Slow

My normal tendency, in just about everything I've ever done, is to jump right in, feet first and just start. No questions asked... just get the ball rolling, get on top of it and try not to fall off. As crazy as that sounds, this method has helped me accomplish a lot of things in my life. Things I would have never done had I thought it through. I was a Marine, for example, when I was 18... I'd never do that now! Mostly because I'm older and I get tired quicker and the thought of people…

New Beginnings - Starting a Small Farm in Downtown Frederick

I've been in love with farming since 2008, when I started hanging out with Loran Shallenberger, a great guy and a very talented farmer who was living near the base of Sugarloaf mountain at the time. I started helping Loran, who had just begun his own farm project called North Comus Acres on a rented piece of farmland. Loran raised hogs, chickens and grew vegetables, and we became good friends. I helped Loran, alongside my daughter Amber, who was 7 or 8 at the time for the better part of 2…

Squash, Mustard Greens, and Chick Pea Curry

I'm gathering recipes that are fast and easy to make for dinner once I pick up the farm share.  Because I'm lacking in clever wordsmithing skills today, I'm calling it Fast From the Farm Share.  Here's the first official installment.

A quick vegetarian stew of sautéed zucchini and yellow squash with mustard greens and chick peas in a prepared masala sauce.…

Mac and Cheese in a Pumpkin from MELT

One of the prettiest things I've done with a sugar pie pumpkin from my CSA farm share is this dish.  Creamy macaroni and cheese with bits of Italian sausage baked in a pumpkin from the new cookbook MELT:  The Art of Macaroni and Cheese by Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord.

Shaved Kohlrabi Pizza

Kohlrabi isn't just for sushi any more  (you're thinking, wait, what?).

I shaved the bulb and sautéed the greens for two pizzas:  pancetta, kohlrabi, caramelized onions and Manchego for the meat eaters, and pesto, kohlrabi, caramelized onions, dates and goat cheese for the vegetarians.

You can find the recipe here.…

Low and Slow Pear Butter Waffles

I'm fortunate to have resourceful farmers running my CSA.  Last fall they gleaned pears from the unloved, unmanaged city trees and shared them with us.  I made pear butter using FarmGirl Fare's recipe, then used that pear butter to make waffles.

I think vegetables get a bad rap in the appetizer category, and I'm trying to change that, one bite at a time.  Here's my latest effort:

Fast Fresh Tomato Sauce

This sauce lets the beauty of a freshly picked tomato, grown for flavor, not ability to travel, shine through.  It's easy to make--if you're a ninja you probably don't even need a cutting board--and keeps your kitchen cool to boot.…

Zucchini Confit

Who doesn't feel overwhelmed by zucchini in the summer? In the blink of an eye, you can suddenly find yourself in possession of half a dozen.  People with gardens have been known to "stop by" and leave bagfuls for the unsuspecting.  Luckily for the zucchini, it is both versatile and tasty. It can be…
